Subjects covered in this post are, broadly speaking, IF and other forced fasting, Keto and LCHF protocols such as fat-shots, electrolytes and other supplements, restriction of food, macro-manipulations and various other mind-influenced ‘dieting’ interventions:
Most people, when they begin ZC, bring all sorts of LCHF/Keto ideas with them. This includes beliefs about adding extra fat, intermittent fasting and the ‘need’ for electrolytes as well as other supplementation, among many other things.

Marcy found this gem (Top 11 Biggest Lies of Mainstream Nutrition) on Authority Nutrition, so I thought posting about it so we can find it again would be a good idea.
In the Zero Carb Health Facebook Group, we often get people questioning us about these common diet myths.
Over 8 years ago when I started eating a zero carb diet there was no information about it. Then I discovered The Bear’s thread in a Low carb forum. He had been eating, and studying the Zero Carb diet for almost 50 years. I figured if he was still healthy after all those years, then it must be healthy. He studied the diet extensively and after over 8 years I have found most of what he wrote about it to be true.
I gave up salting my food years ago, because of these comments The Bear made about salt.
Optimal foods include:
- Meat! Beef, veal, pork, chicken, duck, turkey, fish, shellfish, lamb, etc. Organ meat if you enjoy it, liver, kidneys, and such like. Bacon, of course!
- Eggs; as many as you like. Yolks are delicious and good for you.

There is no benefit whatsoever from such a low fat/high carb diet, it is nutritionally deficient, body destructive and unwise. Humans are carnivores. Mixed diets are very unhealthy. People are not omnivores like pigs and rats, and lack the equipment for such a diet. We have a wide ranging ability to tolerate a large number of edibles, but this is a survival asset, not a directive to eat that way if you have a free choice of nutrients. Read More
