According to Phinney and Mercola, this is only a problem with excess protein.

May be, but it is not natural to weigh meat and fat and all the rest of the "numbers" zerocarb's do to get "it" right. Some say you need lots of fat and those that do it gain weight, feel sick...or the other story about fat for bowel movements???

Good luck mate. Will be interesting to see how it works for you, as you're coming from all raw already.

The liver converts a percentage of protein to glucose, because a few cell types in the body require glucose to function.

Otherwise, once transitioned to zero-carb, the body is running on ketones not glucose.

I would suggest a 5-6 week trial. By that stage, you should have a good idea as to  whether it's a success or a failure re health.
