Re: Does a carb reduction need to result in Ketogenesis to be effective?
Also, some people are more carb sensitive than others. I found that I need to be very-low-carb (essentially zero carb, I have veggies every couple of days) in order to see improvements.
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.
