    I was reading an article online this lunchtime which also said the same, I'll dig it out and post it later.

    Be good to hear what's right on this matter!
    Yeah, but Volek and Phinney's book is a book about the science of low carbohydrate diets and by two university professors.

    The suggestion to drink large quantities of PUFAs seems, by contrast, to have come from a bodybuilding forum and to have been recommended on the basis that it would quicker.

    To be frank bodybuilders don't really care what's healthy or not and would take a drug that would fry their insides if it made them look a little more like what their peculiar sense of aesthetics inclines them to think of as "better" in the short term.

    Bottom line: do you want a quick and dirty solution or a healthy one?

    This is true, but the OP is actually performing an experiment on the *quick* way to get in ketosis; his hypothesis was that performing a dramatic reduction in carbohydrates would rapidly propel him into ketosis. If the information I quoted is correct, it could be exactly the thing that the OP is missing.

    I hear what your saying, but surely if it's not healthy, why do it?

    To qoute V & P, eating too much PUFA on a high fat diet is 'completely invalid(if not dangerous)'
