Can brain run on no carbs?

Dr. Berg talks about the fuel source of the brain. Your brain can run on alternative fuel sources and you do not have to consume carbs or glucose to get energy. It can run on ketones, which is the byproduct of fat. If it needs glucose, it can make it from protein (dietary) and fat.
