    Cutting carbs completely...

    or close to zero. Is this safe?? I was thinking I could do it easilly enough, and I could burn more fat that way. Or is this not recommended?

    I wouldn't recommend it. You should try to stay right at 20 or more. Going under 20 isn't going to help at all. You're allowed 20g, eat 'em!

    Thanks Brandy. I appreciate the help. I'll stick with what I am doing, it's working. If it ain't broke, don't fix it, lol.

    No or extreemly low carb isn't recomended... generally, it isn't a sustainable diet and without your vegi's, you miss needed nutrients and fiber...

    if you eat salad veggies and such, you won't burn less fat and the fiber will also keep your digestive tract clear of blockages.

    speaking from personal experience, I should have been dead a long, long time already, following my personal plan of no more than 5 gr daily, but almost always 1/2 of that. I do take vitamins with that. Love & Profits: FLATFERENGHI

    I know. When I tell poeple what I eat or do not eat, I alway get strange looks. I did a lot of research and it seems good fats and proteins are all we really need. I do use vitamins.
