Of course.  Just eat mainly meat/dairy and few, if any, veggies or fruit.

Dr.Perlmutter, author of "Grain Brain", when asked that very question, replied "While we do require protein and fat, the human requirement for carbohydrates is none, none whatsoever".

I had the same argument with my mother. You don't need any carbs. Carbs only do two things: prevent you from burning fat, and get stored as fat.

I've eaten less than 20 carbs a day for over 5 years and feel fine.
Never get sick.
No common colds or flu, no stomach problems.
Headaches are rare and short lived.


My carbs tend to come from a few veggies or berries, baked items using almond flour.


I only see a physician for glaucoma, which is being controlled by daily drops.
I stay away from doctors and clinics, threw my statins in the trash and don't give a crap about my lipid results.


Cholesterol testing, to me, is a waste of time and money. Until the medical establishment FINALLY comes to it's senses and realizes
that fat is good and Cholesterol numbers have no meaning, I am not contributing to the insanity.

I'm with you Linda.....since going WB, I haven't had my annual sinus infection and/or head cold.....no seasonal allergies.....my eyesight improved....I feel great and weigh less than I did in high school so I'm inclined to forgo the medical community too until it's functional!

The only reason not to listen to our impressive results is sheer stubborness.  Let's pay them back by dancing in our nineties.

Or hundreds.... :D

Bravo Linda R.! I too only see my doctor once a year for my thyroid test and Armour prescription. I know I have to do this for the rest of my life because I have no thyroid gland at all so I'll always need to supplement it. But I feel so much better that I'm getting less and less concerned with numbers. They keep changing the "required numbers for good health" anyway so what's the point? If I die because I ignored their standards, oh well. At least I died having enjoyed some of the best foods I've ever eaten, and felt fantastic and energetic while doing it.  :)
