For those posting 3xweek or more, looking to make Atkins a life choice

Lo-carb can be a diet or it can be a permanent way to live, an integration of food choices, activity, and attitude which will carry us not simply to our goals but thru our lives.

Please become informed about restrictive diets before making them a life choice.

what about plain old moderation and balance? Atkins focus on meat seems like a real bad idea.

Considering the company went bankrupt, I think it proved that the diet was a fad instead of a lifestyle choice. How could something fail so miserably if it was the real deal?

The link posted anonymously is to a group

read ActivistCash on this so-called responsible group:

They are a radical animal-rights group, they post not one actual peer-reviewed study to back up their claims, and ActivistCash said of them "The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. PCRM is a fanatical animal rights group that seeks to remove eggs, milk, meat, and seafood from the American diet, and to eliminate the use of animals in scientific research...."

I chose to use real, peer-reviewed evidence researched from medical journal abstract services (MedLine & PubLine). By that research lo-carb eating plans, done with the appropriate supervision, are both safe and effective.

Atkins 'focus on meat"

The focus is on animal protien, yes - but that can very successfullly be a focus on fish alone. "plain old moderation and balance" sounds so good - and works for some people - for others, it never has and never will. Lo-Carb is not for everyone, but I find bitterly ironic the idea that so many push so stridently (and inaccurately) fro the idea that it is for no one.
