GUEST,Anne Croucher BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? (61* d) RE: BS: Talk about body sugar levels anyone? 01 Sep 04

Gosh - you really think that bringing in negative arguments such as yo you dieting,( expresly against the instructions in the Atkins books I have read ), and the 'information' that people think the diet is about bacon and pork rinds, and that the production of meat by intensive farming methods,( which is something not aproved of in New Diet Revolution ) - you really think that is an argument against Atkins?

You seem to have no knowledge of how fat is metabolised, and are happy to repeat that ketosis causes a build up of ketones in the blood and leads to diabetes type 1 ketoacidosis, with eventual coma. Utter tosh.

You repeat that Atkins only allows small amounts of fruit and veg - that is nonsense. Low in dietary fiber? You are just trying to make a point - and failing - look - why don't you read the book, and then, when looking for arguments against it be a bit subjective - anything describing the Atkins diet as a quick fix
should be suspect for a start - and just because exercise burns off fat and carbs doesn't mean that the diet is aceptable in a situation where people don't get fat on it. It really doesn't follow.

It is such a pity that so much irrelevant and negative information is included in arguments against Atkins. It might put people off even investigating what it actually entails or encourage them to try a crash diet on pork rinds, and then to claim that the results are due to following the Atkins diet.
