I agree with you, Able, that carbohydrates are absolutely not essential in the human body. But the one question I still have is: If you eat no carbohydrates, your protein intake necessarily rises. As you mentioned, this can damage the liver and kidneys etc. on the long term. So, how come the inuits were so healthy and didn’t get any negative effects from the high amount of protein? Or do you think that fish protein is different than meat and egg protein? I’m planning to maintain a low carbohydrate diet for a long time, but I’m still a bit concerned with that.
By the way, how many grams of carbohydrate a day would you consider is a low carbohydrate diet? (I weigh 51 kg = 112 lbs.)
