A Unprecedented Revival Of Low-Carb Is Coming

Filed under: Low-carb Tips — @ May 12, 2007

It’s no secret that livin’ la vida low-carb is at a crossroads right now.

On the one hand you have those who are vehemently opposed to this way of eating because it goes against everything we’ve always been told about a healthy diet. To them, eating fat, especially saturated fat, is just about the worst possible thing you can possibly do while avoiding or severely limiting carbohydrate is considered “extreme” and “dangerous.” Anti-meat organizations, led by radical vegetarians, hyperbolize the supposed dangers of livin’ la vida low-carb to your health.

Yet, there is an ever-growing group of people like myself who are not only bucking the trend by managing our weight with a low-carb diet, but also encouraging many others around the world to do the same for themselves. While public acceptance of low-carb diets like Atkins is slow to come around, the science behind low-carb diets is moving forward at breakneck speed confirming everything we know to be true about this way of eating.

In the coming years, I fully expect there to be a revival of low-carb that will be even bigger and better than what happened earlier this decade. While I certainly don’t hope for a repeat of all those awful “low-carb” products that attempted to capitalize on the trend, a serious paradigm shift in how we view livin’ la vida low-carb is way past due. The beginning of this is already happening at this very moment.

We need to keep showing our government and health leaders that obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and other obesity-related diseases are being eradicated or greatly improved thanks to this nutritional approach that calls for reducing unnecessary sugar and refined carbohydrate intake. Yes, it IS counterintuitive to everything we’ve ever known about diet and health, but that doesn’t make it wrong.
