Thats only when you are already underweight. You wont succumb to rabbit starvation just because of high protein and low fat. I was more interested in how it affects body fat.
In the Perfect Health Diet, p 25, it states that "the body's ability to convert ammonia to urea peaks with a protein intake of 230g/day, indicating that ammonia levels must be rising rapidly at that level of protein intake".
Too much ammonia no good.
You feel like crap...
Can you actually eat that much protein day after day?
Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.
Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
If I wanted to yah but I love fat to much. I was just wondering about the situation with high protein because some animals like rabbit, which obviously where rabbit starvation came from, is very lean and our ancestors would probably go through times of very high protein times.
What you describe is often called a protein modified sparing fast (pmsf). You will loose weight fast, but you have to ensure that you get enough essential fatty acids (especially omega-3). It's not the healthiest but the fastest way to get lean. A good protocol for this is the one by Lyle McDonald:

Wouldn't lack of carbs + high protein = greater gluconeogenesis? If I eat too much protein, my blood sugar gets high and I need insulin to bring it down. Which I assume means fat gets stored while insulin takes care of blood sugar. So how exactly do we get the 'rabbit starvation?'
