Your body does not need any carbohydrates.

“Above 1 mM ketones, more than half of the brain’s fuel comes from ketones. The rest of the brain’s fuel must indeed come from glucose, but this amount (usually less than 50 grams per day) is easily produced endogenously by the liver from ‘metabolic left-overs’ via a process called gluconeogenesis. Thus, the brain uses glucose in varying amounts depending upon the availability of ketones. The manifest ability of the body to supply the brain with fuel independent of dietary carbohydrate intake clearly contradicts this committee’s assertion that the brain is a carbohydrate-dependent organ. Simply put, this is a classic case of a false premise leading to a false conclusion.” – “The Art And Science Of Low Carbohydrate Living” – Jeff Volek and Stephen Phinney
