High protein will cause health problems. In the absence of carbs, protein is (eventually) turned into carbs, so eating protein is similar to eating carbs, they just must go through a few more steps of molecular transformation.
Lean protein consumption above a certain level is toxic. Obviously you need to eat it with something else, since it would kill you if you eat only lean protein. It also causes Hunger.
It is kind of amazing that both Carbs and Protein cause hunger, but fat does not.
I am a bit amazed at how many low carbers are also calorie counting, or trying to eat low calorie low carb.
You should be eating mostly fat, some protein (the amount is usually calculated on body weight), and some carbs (green vegetables mostly).
You should not feel hungry or feel the need to snack if you are getting adequate fat in your diet.
