Atkins is crap. It is just a way to get lazy people to buy low carb foods. That's all.

although youre right, the low carb food market makes millions off of the craze, its not all for lazy people, ive been doing a keto diet, now CKD, and have had great success, so that is NOT all.

While PETA might have shared interest in bad-mouthing Dr. Atkins, I don't feel they are the only ones that don't agree with Dr. Atkins ideas.

it is not the be all end all of diets, but the reason it gets alot of press, and alot of criticism is that it is effective for alot of people. alot of money is being made off of it. if it had the same success the hollywood diet has, no one would care, nor would it be headline worthy. popular things make news, and draw more criticism than things that come and go. competitors im sure like to dispute it, and im sure some of them have validity, but alot of has to do with its taking revenue away from them. Companies like Slim Fast who are high carb low fat generally, now offer low carb. why? because they want some of that revenue they are losing. ever news article and cirticism isnt always science or health based, in fact, most arent. They always have a slant, and an agenda.
