    The more I think about it I like the idea of seasonal eating. Eating more carbs during summer when they would be available.

    Don't sweat it - you'll be just fine without extra carbs (i.e. eating foods that are primarily carb-based).


    Up your fat intake to stave off hunger pains, and ease into it, sure... but you'll be just fine. And, many problems (like cravings) go away pretty soon.


    And no, I've never heard of "carb intolerance" - but if you have troubles eating grains or such again, that's good! It's your body's way of telling you that stuff's no good for you, right?

    I'm wondering about the "rebound" effects of adding carbs after a "no-carb" adventure? Is it possible to survive without grains and starches? This is a serious question. I have been a pescetarian for awhile but I don't know if giving up grains and starches is the best way to go.

    Sorry, my question is: Is it sustainable?

    No-carb is indefinitely sustainable.


    And it can be done strictly on muscle meats. See the link I gave earlier.

    Maurille, can you point out the part of the article which suggests that men can survive on only muscle meats?


    As far as I'm concerned some organ meats and bone marrow would be essential as well.

    Oops. SerialSinner, no I can't. Looks like I remembered wrong. Sorry.


    In the experiment I was thinking of, they ate "steaks, chops, brains fried in bacon fat, boiled short-ribs, chicken, fish, liver and bacon." (Not necessarily an exclusive list -- just examples.) (That's from Section II of Part 2.)

    I am still reading it and I think its a great article, thanks for posting it. Sometimes its hard to adventure outside of what conventional wisdom dictates, but in this case, everything makes so much sense that I am almost angry it took me so long to realize it. I think Mark deserves credit in this regard. If it wasn't for him, I might still be eating whole grains and lot's of omega 6
