I recently read this
very interesting article written by one of our posters. In it he gives brief mention of "rabbit starvation" which I read about also on wikipedia. Apparently on a diet too high in protein, (and too low in both carbs and fat), the body's metabolism increases as energy is taken from the protein, and energy is wasted transforming Ammonia into Uric acid.
Now to clarify, I'm not disagreeing or trying to lecture, I am hoping that someone will help me to better understand. It seems to me that the energy you would get from the protein would not be useful for fuel (as taebo master implies), however the glycogen plus the fat in protein sources might be providing those sources are fatty enough.
again, I am not an expert and I am writing this as I understand or misunderstand it. Would anyone care to clarify for me?
