Just doing 'low-carb' wasn't good enough for me.

And if you think about it, what carbs do you *need*? Meat is good. Fat is good. Veggies & fruit are seasonal, so you'd occasionally get a serving here and there but only with modern agriculture have they become year-round staples.
This. It depends on you, your genetics, etc. Experiment and see what works for you. Me, if I drive by a potato farm i need to loosen my belt.
