That's why they can't stop talking about their diet! Eating only low-carb foods can have similar effect on brain as ECSTASY

• Low-carb diets can mimic the effects of GHB - also known as liquid ecstasy
• This diet flips your metabolism from burning more fat than carbs, called ketosis
• Low-carb diets typically include swearing off breads, grains and rice
• Long-term side effects of this diet include loss of calcium from bones, increased risk of kidney stones and growth retardation

But we do not eat these foods anyway we are mostly on raw food.

Ok, but for vegans, is this true?
I have never felt better on a low carb diet, mentally or otherwise.
The only time I have felt ecstasy is with certain raw vegan items, like a fresh raw peppermint cold infused tea or an array of perfectly ripe fruit, like I just got to have organic ripe lychees from hawaii. Ecstasy!

I once heard Terrance McKenna say that ecstasy drug destroys dendrites.

People also have their own definition of ecstasy. I'm sure a very clean person would find the use of the drug to be anti-ecstasy and opposite to what they expect ecstasy to be.

Contemplating about perfect compassion...that is ecstasy.

Clarification
Liquid ecstasy is GHB, known as date rape drug.

Ecstasy, which has been made infamous in media for the occasional death, is MDMA. It's the MDMA that destroys dendrites. This article is not about MDMA, despite it's use of its name, Ecstasy.

The title was totally misleading because it's just speculation.

Who was that Scottish doctor that fasted patients for 249 days?
