Why low carb should not be high protein

Why are all good low-carb diets high in fat, like an LCHF diet, and not high in protein?

Could excessive protein in the diet be a problem for aging and cancer?

Dr. Ron Rosedale’s has been talking about this for a long time. Here’s his highly interesting recent presentation from the Low Carb Vail conference. Watch part of it above. Transcript

    Dr. seems to be significantly underweight. Is his recommendation of 0.6 g/kg of lean body mass not too low? Longevity should not come at the expense of health and physical fitness, but then may be he is not as underweight as I perceive.

    I agree. I would do a lot of studying of this before going that low.

    Jesus I fell for it again. I was expecting to learn something but instead tadaaaa pay up.

    Studies show:
    1. Exercise (movement, etc) prolongs healthy life.
    2. Being underweight, ie, ingesting slightly lower number of calories than otherwise required, also prolongs healthy life.
  6. Scott
    Why is under his eyes puffy? From my brief experiences that can be due to isolated sodium nitrites (as opposed to celery powder) used for meat curing, excess chocolate, excess starch,…. and possibly other reasons wherein one does not 'keep in tune' due to disregarding body indications which are correlatable to foods consumed.
