First, congratulations, if that is appropriate. I forgot to check Miss Manners on the protocol for "You aren't dead yet" but congratulations seems in order. The zero carb diet is one that several friends (and at least two family members) have done. One is a 96 year old friend of the family who is still going strong and still working, he's been carb free since the mid 1960s. Others have used it sporadically as a weight loss regime. The trouble with it, of course, is that you pretty much have to cut all carbs and that means no packaged foods (even sausage often contains carbs) and of course no breads, grains, or a lot of vegetables (corn, carrots, peas, and many more). But, if you can manage to live off steak and eggs and bacon and a few vitamins, you will shed weight at an alarming rate (alarming to most Doctors who are still in the 'fat and salt are bad for you' camp). -- Competent? How are we going to compete with that?
