I'm all about singing the virtues of the Atkins Aikins? whatever diet... having seen some really impressive results in friends. Obviously one diet is not the right diet for everyone but now we're seeing the television news... the last bastien of truth in our media centric world... joining the Atkins chorus with Dr. So-and-So talking about how the med community is seeing big value in the low carb diets.
Ok... so dive into the National Food Guide... you know... the document that tells you what the government thinks is the proper food intake... things like "4 services of dairy" or "5 servings of fruit" etc. Yeah... that document that goes on to say "11 servings of cerial, grain, bread per day" or whatever....
Follow the money... The national food guide is produced by the National Wheat Board. Go Figure.
geee... big surprise it's taken years for the docs to climb on board with low carb diets.
