It is a common misconception

that carbs are necessary to live, but that is completely untrue. Vilhjalmur Stefansson proved this wrong in the early 1900s as an anthropologist studying Inuit. His claim that they lived on a 0 carb diet was unbelievable to the elites of NYC. So he proved them wrong by living (very healthily) on a 0 carb diet in the city for a year.
