You can find out all kinds of stuff about brains from the Atkins people, but nothing about what I need to know: how many carbs do they have?

(I'm watching my weight for my ten-year high school reunion. 'Cause I plan on eating a crapload of brains when I get there. Those guys were jerks.)

i know that brains have 30% fat, lots of water and some protein. I think it is a low carb meal.

According to this page, braised pork brains have 0% carbs. You gotta figure that the numbers for people brains are similar.

OTOH, Fresh brains are swimming in glucose, which is a simple sugar that breaks down fairly quickly.

So, if you're eating brains that very fresh (on the half-shell, as it were) it might have a carb content similar to whole milk or fresh eggs -- maybe 7-10 g.

Only on the Internet could a post like this actually get answers that look correct...

It probably depends on how you cook them.

Oh, and I totally linked to your site. You're the coolest zombie I're the only zombie I know....

Quick question--does the fact that my template is the same as yours make me a Zombie? O_O

Cassarass -- thanks for the link! The fact that your template matches mine does make you a zombie. You should start eating brains immediately.

G_i_i_A, HP -- it bothers me that you know these things. Edward Liu is right, only on the internet. Or maybe a CSI lab.
