About I love carbs

i was watching EXM (extreme makeover, actually a pretty neat show) And the trainer talked about the atkins diet. He said the problem is, when people are on the atkins diet, They lose fat, but they also lose muscle. So when they go back to their original diet they balloon out even worse.

and at my work, all of these middle aged women are obsessed with the atkins diet. Its gross, like they eat so much meat. I was never much of a meat person, but this atkins diet pushed me over the edge.

Yeah, what the hell IS it with middle aged women and atkins? They're all over it! OK... so... a symptom of ketosis is overheating. A symptom of menopause is overheating. Yeah. FUCKING BRILLIANT to combine the two, isn't it? No wonder I have to wear a sweater in August when I'm at the office!

I never thought I'd see the day when 300 pound office wenches could eat slabs of salami for a coffee-break snack and their 300 pound office wench friends would all nod and sing along about how wonderful it is that she's doing something for her health. But here we are.

"They lose fat, but they also lose muscle"

Just so you know, there are quite a few studies out there at this point to indicate that this is untrue...
