    Here I am, Italian and currently on my second week of LCHF (I know it's not much but every long journey begins with a little step, right?). in Italy this WOE is still largely unknown and nevertheless outright criticized "it isn't what we do". The Mediterranean pyramid still rocks here. The decrease in pasta sales must be mostly because everyone is advised to keep a "portion" between 60 and 80 grams, and we are beginning to diversify our grain consumption (rice, oat, barley) and not because Italians are giving up wheat altogether. At least that's the general behavior I see around.
