    As I recall, the "six small meals a day" advice was aimed at people with reactive hypoglycemia, in a misguided attempt to keep their blood sugar levels constant.

    I tried low carb for a few weeks and felt awful the whole time.
    I think extra salt just added to the problem (the problem being my insides felt like they were being torn up from the inside, but I read "you need to drink salt water" so stupidly I forced it down - water with salt dissolved in it. I think the stomach pain was mostly caused by chronic constipation though, but the salt was not helping any as it was another irritant on my poor non-functioning by that point gut).
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    I see. That makes sense (not the advice, just the explanation).

    Not unless you're a two-year old, in my experience.
