I followed your link to Dirty Carnivore the other day and I *love* it. So much information and I found so many discussions really reassuring. Great great resource.

"Zealous" is just one of many words the lazy use to describe the dedicated.

I'm personally quite fond of the Dirty Carnivore site (full disclosure: I'm a moderator there), but if someone's trying to be very strict ZC, and that someone is also a beginner, it might be rough to do with all the talk of salads and salsa and whatnot going on (not a problem for me; I've got thick callouses). But they're great people, pretty science- and data-oriented, and not religious at all about food. Definitely worth a tour around the site to pick up some pointers and info.

The site that sort of put ZC on the map, for better or worse, is Zeroing In On Health. I joined their forum when I was a beginning ZCer, and am still fond of a lot of the folks on the forum. They're pretty hardcore, and they helped me really stick to my plan. Other people find them...zealous. (That's a mild word; people who dislike them use much more colorful language.) It's definitely worth reading the material they've got available, whether or not you're a forum member.

And the thread that got me going, that has a lot of great and not-so-great information, and is also a fascinating, long-running, humongous argument, is the Active Low-Carber Forum's thread started by Owsley Stanley, aka The Bear. The moderators shut it down long, long ago, but it's still great reading -- everyone will find something in there to raise their blood pressure, lol.

you can find a lot of info regarding ZC on the net just by searching, but i'd advice to consider ZC a tool - - - not an ultimate goal: it's awesome if used wisely, but can be counterproductive if abused or over-obsessed about

as i understand (and feel) ZC works like a 'fasting with nutrients': in absence of direct dietary sources of glucose body enters in sort of 'starvation mode' though you're not actually starving: so for a while you're enjoying benefits of both fasting and feeding - however, do it really long term, and limit yourself to muscle meat only regimen - and the curve of 'diminishing returns' would plunge below zero leaving you worse off
