    Oh come on this is ridiculous! You are over blowing the whole gluconeogenesis thing. The amount of essential glucose is so small it can easily be supplied on a low carb diet. Ketosis has repeatedly been shown to be muscle sparing and cortisol is only a worry if you are hypoglycemic. I have had my hormones tested as I am in treatment for Endometriosis. My cortisol is just fine. The human body can run on fat or carbs just fine. Or a mix of both.

    Also Auto-proteolysis only continues until ketone levels get to a certain concentration (different for each of us) and then it stops until the fat reserves are depleted. That's why it's called Fuel Sparing.

    I've had my blood tested at regular intervals (every 3 months) for the past year in order to get an idea of my overall health while on a primal style of eating, which for me is a fairly low carb diet (about 100 grams a day). I eat very little sugar. According to my Doctor as well as my endocrinologist, my most recent blood results were normal and my cortisol levels were normal. My cholesterol levels were "optimal". I think people defend a lower carb diet because it works for them. There appears to be no black and white when it comes to nutrition.

Maybe you should give up the facade of a healthy "48 year young" lady and just accept that you are old, unhealthy (insulin resistent, "celiac" yea right, more like tanked metabolism) and unhappy.
    Oh about the celiac disease that has nothing to do with healthy low carb living although I'm closer to moderate CHO intake. Five minutes of education would have made you not make such an uneducated comment. And I'm not insulin resistant nor ever was. No tanked metabolism either.

    Unhappy nope not at all.

    But I suspect you are. And since you have no real knowledge this is what you need to resort to.

    Oh and you couldn't be more right in saying I "couldnt of got someone like me in your prime" but that is because I go for class and substance.

    I'm sure my cortisol levels are through the roof. Prolly has more to do with my inner Woody Allen than the muffin I skipped.

    And back when I was diagnosed with celiac disease in early 2001 I didn't know what a CHO was much less do any sort of diet.

    And I was in good shape relative to a proper military standard and bikini ready.
