How do the recommended vitamin and mineral values for low carb vary from the RDA values?
What are the correlations between blood lipid values and heart disease in low carbers? ie. is high LDL a problem in the absence of inflammation? (low carb is anti inflammatory)
What are the baseline inflammation markers in low carbers? (CRP)
etc. etc. etc.
While we the lay persons won't be able to definitively answer these questions we can share our experiences with each other. So I would like to start a monthly or bimonthly "journal" of low carb "science". The reason I have used quotation marks is that all of the articles will be user / reader generated. That means you! I know that there are others out there like me that have done n=1 experiments on themselves. If you have been measuring blood glucose, blood ketones, weight, waist size, or even urine ketones and can make a graph that would be wonderful. I realized that this will not be scientifically rigorous but we can help each other out by sharing information. Even your food log - performance correlation observations may be helpful to others.

In other news I have my last 5k race tonight, then in six days I will have at the Bolder Boulder 10k. After the BB I'm going to start a little dietary experiment and try one week of NO CARB! I'm going to miss avocados :(
