Berkeley Student Goes On Low-Carb, But ‘Not The Atkins One’

Thespian Alex Mojaher acting like he knows about the Atkins diet

I recently came across a column about livin’ la vida low-carb in a student newspaper called The Daily Californian featuring the thoughts and opinions of a 21-year old Berkeley student named Alex Mojaher. There must be something in the air out there on the campuses of higher learning in Berkeley, CA because our buddy Alex expressed some rather peculiar ideas about the Atkins diet much in the same manner as this student did earlier this year despite the fact that he admits having found success on low-carb.

How can you be FOR low-carb, but AGAINST the Atkins diet?

While he talks about going on a low-carb diet in his column entitled “The Notorious C.A.R.B.,” Alex makes sure people know it’s “not the Atkins one.” What exactly is his problem with the most famous low-carb diet in the world developed by the late Dr. Robert C. Atkins?

Mojaher has some rather strange views about the Atkins diet, so I sent him an e-mail about it attempting to explain why his impressions about it were mistaken. He was kind enough to write me back and share why he believes what he does about Atkins (it shocked me when he named his source for information) as well as provide a sample menu of what he ate on his non-Atkins low-carb diet plan that helped him lose 35 pounds in 2 months.
