Re: [IP] carbs to a min



AS always YMMV but I have to reiterate that keeping carbs to a minimum is not
always the best way to keep your insulin needs down.  Your body NEEDS a
certain amount of energy just to run the heart and brain and other bodily
functions.  If it does not get it in the readily and easily usable form of
glucose, then it will break down muscles andand deyhydrate you into ketosis.
This ketosis gives the body fuel but it is kinda like buring rubber in your
car instead of puttin g in unleaded gas - it ain't good for you!!!
