I was in the grocery store last night and happened across a Time magazine whose cover story was a profile on low-carb diets. I looked through it and it looked pretty even-handed, but then on my way to work this morning I saw a blurb on the USA Today about how expensive low-carb foods are. "Do you have to be rich to be thin?" the article asked. This on top of other media 'reports' on low-carb diets in general and Adkins in particular.
Enough already!
Geeze, if you don't want to do low-carb, don't do it! I've noticed these articles alternate with the "America is getting fatter" ones.

Make up your mind! (IMG:http://www.sugarbustersforum.com/forum/style_emoticons/default/mad.gif)
BTW, I haven't noticed huge jumps in my grocery bill because I buy some low-carb foods. If I see a jump in my Weekly Contribution to the American Farmer, it's because grocery prices in general have gone up.
