Re:[IPk] extreme low carb diet

>>>Does anyone know anything about potential adverse effects of a very
extreme low carb diet (more extreme than Bernstein)?

 IIRC the Bernstein diet is pretty low carb as it is (??? <30 g per day???).
Most plant-derived foods contain some carbs, even something as apparently
innocuous as lettuce or broccoli has a few carbs, so if you are going to go to
less than Bernstein, you are going to have to cut back all plant-derived
foodstuffs, running the risk of deficiencies in micronutrients, vitamins etc.
Also, there's not much fibre in a skinless chicken fillet.

Why would you want to do this?
