The VLC thing makes me a little nervous. It seems true that nearly everyone on the planet has the adaptive capability to deal with Very low carbs or even No carbs. But is that the best way to go? If carbohydrates/glucose is so important that our bodies figured out how to make it on its own then I would think that restricting carbs beneath the minimum required quantity would be a mistake in the long run. Seems like a survival mechanism, not a way of life.
Some of you may die, but that is a risk I'm willing to take.
