I would love to hear about your experiences with carb-restricted eating, both good and bad. How much did you restrict your carb intake? How did you go about it? Did you go “full Atkins,” and restrict carbs to 20 or less grams a day? Or were you more moderate, restricting carbs to 30% of total calories, as in The Zone Diet? [The typical American diet derives 55-60% of all calories from carbohdrates.] If you don’t care to share with the world, please send me an email to steveparkermd (at) gmail (dot) com. I’ll keep all all personal responses to my email address private and confidential.
