It's a common misconception that carbs are needed for the brain.
Al is absolutely correct. Fat is the preferred fuel of human metabolism, not glucose. The body only needs a very small amount of glucose under normal circumstances, and that can be supplied by your liver.

Mark Sisson explains it pretty well here: Why Fat, Not Carbs, Are the Preferred Fuel for the Human Body | Mark's Daily Apple

I'm not a diabetic. If I were, I'd choose the latter.

There's really nothing bad about ketosis. Feel fine, bacon, eggs, rib-eye steak, chicken, shrimp, chocolate (sugar free).

I just checked that site, and apparently that guy made some changes and is now in compliance with the law.

I Received a Letter from the NC Board of Nutrition and Dietitians
In response to this investigation, I did three things:
1) stopped doing my published advice column.
2) took down my diabetes support package links.
3) and made my disclaimer more prominent. Additionally, I added a disclaimer at the bottom of every page.
Because I complied with their order to stop speaking and to change what I say and what I publish, the board concluded that I am in substantial compliance and closed the investigation.

I looked around his site some more, and much of it reads like an infomercial (for example, this), probably because infomercials try to sound like a very enthusiastic believer.

LOL, absolutely, I'd love to see what would happen if that was applied to paid political advertisements

I doubt I am near ketosis since I get 50-100g of carbs a day but I do seem to be thriving on my low carb diet one month in. I am eating all the eggs, bacon, meats and fish I want. Lots of salad, with blue cheese dressing. A fair amount of nuts. A few of Al's low carb candies. Weight is down significantly. I feel good. And, most surprisingly, my cravings for cookies, rice, hash browns, etc are gone. I will report on the blood work next time I get in for a physical.
