"1) Your brain alone needs 130 grams of carbohydrates a day, without that, you can expect headaches and other performance detriments."
Uh, total horsecrap. I consume under 20 grams of carbs a day total - yes, I painstakingly count carbs - and my chronic headaches actually STOPPED when I started following this diet. I have never felt better.
It seems to me like the grain industry lobbyists are at it again. Last time they screwed us over was when they had the "food pyramid" made. You know that facepalmer - the one that tells you to eat SIX TO ELEVEN SERVINGS OF GRAIN PER DAY. And then you wonder why Americans are fat as hell. And why our obesity rate started spiking right after the "food pyramid" came out.
