GUEST,Anne Croucher BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? (61* d) RE: BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? 30 Aug 04

Why is it people have to try to discredit the Atkins diet?

You'd think that the food processing industry thought itself really threatened by a new way of eating which did not include it and decided to put some really powerful propaganda around about the Atkins diet just in case more people realised they did not need to eat high carb and transfat laden processed food - in fact that it is bad for them.

If you want to lose weight just toss out the grain, sugar, beans and potatoes, eat salad, veges with low carb densities, a little fruit - read Dr Atkin's New Diet Revolution for a list of all the things to avoid and all the things you can eat and still lose weight.

Avoid all the stuff being sold as for the Atkins diet - it is just the food processing giants trying to make a profit and ruin the diet's effectiveness. It might say 2 carbs on the front - but just read the ingredients!!!

You can easily prove that you don't need to eat dense carbohydrates - just stop doing it, your body will thank you by feeling better and getting thinner.

By the way ketosis is not dangerous, not toxic, but 'they' hope it will be confused with diabetic acidosis - which is actually the opposite in terms of blood sugar concentration.

Dr Atkins was dead wrong in the reasons why his diet works, by the way - and if my experience is typical you only need to maintain normal levels of dietary fat or oil, and it is protein which makes you not feel hungry, but that is only the justification he gave when faced with such oposition from the establishment. The same oposition has been voiced for decades, every time someone realises that carbohydrates make you fat - it has been known since the 18 hundreds, but somehow no one wants us to know about it. You'd really think there was some big money making concern wanting to discredit the idea.
