Opinion: Low-carb craze threatens to head off track

Filed under: In The News — Tags: — @ April 13, 2004

In a USA Today op/ed, Stephen Perrine states that the, “Low-carb craze threatens to head off track.” Here is the basis of his arguement:

bq. The original low-carb movement worked because it inspired us to cut out junk food. Since high-carb foods also happen to be plentiful – and high in calories – excising them from one’s diet meant almost guaranteed weight loss. Robert Atkins’ plan may not have been the perfect solution – it’s high in fat and low in fiber and other nutrients – but when it came to dropping pounds, it worked.

No matter what you believe, the article is a good read. Stephen brings some valid points.
