Keep in mind that switching to a very low carbohydrate diet from the typical American diet, that is loaded with sugars and starches, can cause some side effects especially for adults over 45. The body’s metabolism must change drastically in order to accommodate a high fat and high protein diet. For that reason, for some people, it is advisable to cut out carbohydrates more slowly than this menu might indicate. At first, concentrate on eliminating the refined carbohydrates – sugar and refined flour – and then cut out grains and starchy vegetables. For an excellent discussion on the benefits of low carbohydrate diets, I would recommend Life Without Bread by Christian B. Allan, Ph.D and Wolfgang Lutz, M.D.
