- Start with bacon grease… Lots and lots of bacon grease. (If you don’t save yours, you can get some here)
When faced with the major upcoming holidays or occasions, where alcohol will no doubt be frequently offered…… Will you, won’t you? What to do? And if you do, what to expect…so that you don’t make the mistake of thinking that those drinks are no big deal or won’t affect your weight or any other progress your body is starting to make on a Zero Carb diet.
Yes, alcohol is one of those things which some ZC’ers do partake in, now and then. This isn’t a post telling you NOT to have it, if you choose to do so.

The Human Natural Diet and the Evolution of the Zero Carb Diet. (Part 5)
After getting kicked out of LLVLC we all moved over to the shiny new forum, created by Charles Washington called Zeroing in on Health – ZIOH.
At first ZIOH was an open public forum. How soon we learned THAT was a mistake. We were constantly getting attacked by people who thought we were crazy. (See, The Bears thread, to read what kind of arguments we had to (still do) deal with on a daily basis.) So, we came up with a questionnaire that people had to fill out, letting us know a little bit about themselves and why they wanted to join. This helped with some of the problems but not all.
The Human Natural Diet and the Evolution of the Zero Carb Diet. (Part 2)
What are humans supposed to eat? Figuring out an animal’s natural diet is easy. All we have to do is look to nature to see what wild cats and dogs eat.
