Who hates the Low-Carb Phase

What happened to the old fashioned way to lose weight, by exercising and eating less. Has it been proven that this "low carb" diet actually works. Its hurting Krispy Kreme sales and If they close down one of their stores close to me, I will be pissed. Why have people gotten sooo lazy, that instead of walking or working out, they'll just eat a carb friendly meal. Theres nothing wrong with the carb control thing, but I feel its gotten out of hand and I'm getting worried that some of the fat full snacks, wont be there for me to consume. Who else feels like this?? BTW I eat like a pig and I'm skinny

I don't like the low-carb/Atkins fad either. It might help you lose weight in the short-term, but it's long-term effects aren't exactly clear.

My dad tried it for a couple weeks, and while he lost weight, he also developed mental lapses, and became spacey and out of it. Apparently you need 200 grams of carbs a day to keep your body functioning normally, and when you start the Atkins diet, you can only eat 20 grams of carbs a day

Our body needs all food groups. People forget that. If we don't have one or the other we end up straining some type of organ. They are saying the low carb. diets are bad for the liver.

What I find worse is fat people telling people how to lose weight (see Dr.Phil)

They say that if you eat so much as a french (or "freedom") fry during the first "all important stage" you can throw your entire diet off and it won't work. That is just CRAZINESS

im tired of hearing people yap about it . it seems so unhealthy


....This is fucked up, fucked up....

This is your blind spot, blind spot.
It should be obvious, but it's not.

You cannot kickstart a dead horse
You just crush yourself and walk away
I don't care what the future holds
Cause I'm right here in your arms today
With your fingers you can touch me

I'll be your black swan, black swan
I'm for spare parts, broken up.

it isn't unhealthy, and it does work. We learned about it in science class last year, and the science behind it is quite sound. I don't want to explain it now, but do some research.

I agree. Not to mention how some people are getting so bread-phobic...one of the most important foods since the dawn of time is suddenly bad for you.

"Theoretically" it is good for you. And we know that sound theory = sound pratice

If you eat in moderation and excercise you don't need to worry. There's one sure way to lose weight and that's to eat less!

I don't do the Atkins diet (or any of the other low-carb diets), but get really irritated by the anti-Atkins folks, largely because they have a vested interest in seeing the Atkins Diet fail, but are dishonest about that vested interest.

Basically, if Atkins is right, all the nannying we've been getting for at least a generation from the usual suspects will be proved wrong, and those people will lose their power.

so then the people who've been 'opressed' into eating all nutrients see this as a way of getting back their power?

I had no idea Atkins had this disestablishmentarian bent.

Still, so many of the pro-atkins gurus probably have a vested interest in seeing the diet succeed in order to gain power and more importantly, money.

Oh trust me, the fatty snacks will always be around! I don't know why it bothers you so much, you don't have to participate. It would suck if the Krispy Kreme closes down though. However, they became so popular for a while that I think their profits were bound to fall no matter what.

i dont give a fuck what a high school science class says...

stuffing your face with meat thats pumped up with chemicals by our government and losing 30 lbs in a few weeks is NOT healthy.

there are still quite a few nutritionists that are puzzled by this . just cos a few people claim its healthy now, doesnt mean that it will be considered healthy in a few years . we are constantly finding out what is good for us, and what isnt good for us . its ALWAYS changing.

besides . i dont need to do research . i happen to be active and thin . and im all about the carbs, baby . yum yum yum yum bread and yum yum yum yum pasta . mmmmm .
