Can Low-Carb Be Called A ‘Healthy Diet’?

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ July 9, 2006

Take care of yourself by getting an adequate amount of sleep, a moderate level of exercise, and by eating a “healthy diet.” If I had a dollar every time I’ve heard that magical phrase said by a doctor, nutritionist or any of the thousands of other health gurus, then I would be a gazillionaire!

But does anybody know what a “healthy diet” really means?

bq. Isn’t it odd how health “experts” just automatically ASSUME that overweight and obese people KNOW what a “healthy diet” is? Obviously with two of out every three Americans currently either overweight or obese, we must NOT know what constitutes a “healthy diet” or we would all be doing those things to make us skinnier and healthier. If we did, then the numbers wouldn’t be as high as they are, right?
