Protein and Kidneys
I'm new to the paleo diet and would like to get an opinion on the dangers of high protein intake and kidney damage. I understand ketosis may cause the body to form dangerous compounds known as ketones, which can cause organs, specifically kidneys, to fail. Ketosis is believed to be avoided by consuming a minimum of 100 grams of carbohydrates per day. Dosen't the paleo diet limit carb intake?
Should I be worried?
No, the paleo diet is not about carbohydrate restriction. You can be high-carb or low-carb paleo. Most of the people referenced in paleo literature, like the Kitavans or the Bushman, eat plenty of carbohydrates.
