East Hampton Star Writer More Ignorant About The Atkins Diet Than She Needs To Be

Filed under: Atkins Diet — @ May 26, 2007

One of the things I enjoy doing at CarbWire and at my blog is helping educate misinformed newspaper columnists as it relates to livin’ la vida low-carb. You know, I’m sure these people are well-meaning in their own sick, perverted way thrashing the Atkins diet, but I for one will not allow the ignorance to go unchallenged. It’s the least I can do as a public service to society. :)

I’ve seen columnists who are jealous of how well the Atkins diet works, a low-fat diet apologist, what I would describe as a low-carbophobe, and even a Jewish man who claims he did the Atkins diet (no, he didn’t!). My favorite ones are those know-it-all college journalists who rant and rave about low-carb diets when they’re still learning how to pull their britches up!

Ah, these people never cease to amaze me with all the ways they try to bring down this healthy lifestyle change that millions of us have made our one and only way to eat for the rest of our lives. And yet they STILL do as I noticed in the East Hampton Star this week from a columnist named Laura Donnelly. She wrote about the subject of diet in her column this week and had to get in her digs on the Atkins low-carb diet.
