    The alcohol thing and low carb seems to mess up some people and not others.

    It can be dangerous. I was told on good authority that eating some carbs with the drink helps stabalize the blood glucose and eliminates most of the problems....but as I said, could still be dangerous, so it's risk you take.

    As for the fat thing. I have a few of the Barry Groves books. Whilst he seems to know what he's talking about, he really does take the fat thing to an extreme. If I remember rightly, he recommends 80% fat...which goes against everyone else.

    As for Taubes (who is also mentioned in the article), his name is a swear word in the circles I mix with :D

    Having said that, fat has had too much bad press. I'm not a fan of low fat diets....or should I say, I believe people often take the low fat theory to an extreme too :(

    I can second this Jim after Friday night's performance :D I had a 2 day hangover!!

    By the way, your transformation has been amazing, a real inspiration. Well done you :)
    It's nice to see that it can be done while eating all this butter & cream (and red wine during induction ;))
