I don't think that it's restricted, but that would severely limit your vegetable intake, making your only carbohydrate source during the day a huge jolt of sugar.

One thing I've been wondering about the strict AD/MD with 30g/day as a long-term approach is the acidic nature of the diet. I know that the paleolithic approach, though high in meats, has enough fruit and vegetable matter to keep the entire diet alkaline. What would the possible effect of long-term dietary acidosis be? Would the reduction in overall insulin levels and the ability to cycle to a more alkaline intake on the weekends make a difference, or would it be smarter in the long run to raise the carbohydrate intake to a level that allows you to partake in unlimited quantities of low-GI fruits and veggies, especially if you hold the twin-goals of performance AND longevity?

I know acidosis is not something to aim for. I don't eat a ton of veggies by nature...so I sub in a green drink to help offset the extra protein.

I was thinking of maybe eating 15 grams of carbs from blueberries 1hr pre and 1hr post workout with some fat and protein. Does that make any sense? Or would the same thing work with cabbage broccoli or cauliflower? I am at day 8 and feeling great, since the carb amounts are so low I have been eating cabbage broccoli cauliflower and salads greens for my carbs totally adhering to the strict plan. Which is allot easier than a totally strict zone imo because of the hunger reduction. I kind am thinking the same thing as you Jesse questioning if under 30 is excessive and not healthy long term, but I feel really good so not sure, and really realize how poorly my body responded to even zone level carbs. My main goal is defiantly long term health over anything else. Any thoughts?

I've always tended towards the moderate carb intake of 50-60g/day and you can pack in plenty of veggies that way. The acidosis issue is likely a valid concern for th elong term.
Israel- Sent you a PM with the contact info.

So 11 days and still at <30 a day and feeling great! I guess on 3 days I came in around 40 because I did not know there where so many carbs in pistachios :-) I have been chowing down the fat.
Overall I am really impressed with my energy level, dramatic reduction in hunger. I should note the energy level is not only up but is extremely stable. Carbs are like Rocket fuel and fat is a nice stable slow burn. Looking forward to my first carb load this weekend! Must admit I am a little afraid of the carb load as well, or stopping the carb load rather :P Hope this info is useful to others came into to this not knowing what to expect.
