I've given up grains (most days) and potatoes, eat more vegetables and meat, and pay attention to glycemic load. It's not an ultra-low carb diet, but I feel better than I did on a high-carb diet.

The Atkins diet is too extreme for me. Apparently you *must* take vitamins and minerals, at least when you start it. That says the diet is unbalanced.

I have doubts about the research that supports a high-carb diet. I think vegetable intake is more significant than grains or tubers. Plus there is no bodily requirement for carbohydrate, whereas you *need* fat and protein. You will die if you don't eat fat. You won't die if you eat no carbohydrate. (Google "rabbit starvation".)

Our ancestors needed to use more energy than we do, so they ate more, and they took in more vitamins and minerals. They probably ate more greens and meat than we do, and no milk or grains.
