Robert St. John Prides Himself In Being Ignorant About Low-Carb

Columnist Robert St. John says he enjoys tormenting Atkins diet advocates

One of the things I like to do in my columns here at CarbWire and elsewhere is to point out columnists who write articles in the media that I find are either outright lies or a gross display of ignorance about livin’ la vida low-carb. I suppose since I have been so successful on a low-carb diet losing nearly 200 pounds on it that I feel like it is one of my duties to defend it and gladly so.

I’ve done it many times over the past two years and I’ll keep doing it every chance I can get because people deserve to know the truth rather than the almost-always jaded opinions of these so-called journalists. If these people would simply take a few hours and just read a low-carb book for once in their life, then I don’t think we would see all the constant negativity that pops up in the media so much. Don’t hold your breath, though.

You might recall a syndicated food columnist by the name of Robert St. John who I featured not once, but twice in blog posts last month after he proved to the entire world what a complete numbskull he is about the Atkins diet. In this blog post, I noted how St. John described Atkins as a “sadistic slow torture method of carbohydrate deprivation.” Soon thereafter, he again tried to be cute seeing himself write about his version of low-carb living in this blog post.

Pure unadulterated idiocy is all this was and I called him on it! Take every myth you’ve ever heard about low-carb and hyperbolize it. That’s precisely what this dolt St. John apparently enjoys doing in his columns with no concept of discovering what the facts really are. What he doesn’t realize is just how retarded that makes him look to people educated about the low-carb lifestyle when he pretends to know what this way of eating is all about when in reality he hasn’t got the first clue!
