Vegetarian Site Mischaracterizing The Atkins Diet

Filed under: Atkins Diet — @ September 28, 2006

Our vegetarian friends over at the “Disease Proof” blog (led by Dr. Joel Fuhrman–remember my review of his “Eat To Live” book?) posted a column today entitled “Will America Ever Eat Better?” where a regular poster at the “Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb” blog is quoted.

In a discussion of eating a healthy diet, Gerald Pugliese from “Disease Proof” lamented that not everyone will follow Dr. Fuhrman’s vegetarian diet because they don’t see any value in eating vegetables.

Here’s what Pugliese wrote:

“Get a load of this commenter on the low-carb blog LivinLaVidaLowCarb:

Who the hell cares about the veggies anyway? You don’t need them and there is absolutely nothing essential about them. Don’t let the acculturated veggie sympathizers tell you otherwise.

Pretty crazy right? Especially since even the Atkins Diet calls for the daily consumption of vegetables.

That quote from my recent blog post showing one of my weekly low-carb menus is from none other than Rob from the “Zero Carb Daily” blog. Most of my readers already know that he is on a zero-carb, carniverous diet as his way to lose weight and get healthy.

But that’s not the way most people on the low-carb lifestyle eat. Click here to read more about this story and why “Disease Proof” is censoring dissenting views from being posted on their web site.
