Dear Eric,

thank you for the informative article! I still wonder about something (maybe it can even be some input for the book): You say that there is an “initial 1–4 week period of fatigue, irritability, and decreased performance when adopting a low-carb diet that subsides after adaptation” but then you recommend trying 40% for one month = 4 weeks and comparing it to 4 weeks of 20% fat. If someone who followed your recommendations was one of those people who need 3 to 4 weeks for adapting to low-carb, wouldn’t their comparison results be highly confounded by the adaption process? Why not 2 months low-carb and then 1 month high-carb (assuming that adaption is easier the other way around)? 6 months total is still a drop in the bucket, after all.
Just something I noticed, I’ve never tried a low-carb diet though so maybe I’m overlooking something here.

Kind regards from Germany
Leo

Leo, that specifically refers to ketogenic, or very low carb diets, closer to 60%+ calories from fat, that shouldn’t occur at all at 40% fat so not an issue!
