if i was doing my masters in nutrition i'd be studying students on atkins pre and during the diet test results as opposed to students eating a decent diet and if thier grades dropped. But im not so oh well.
I have always thought that removing carbs would mess with brain function and id be very interesed to find out... if anyone here is looking for a nutrition/ diettics research assignment do this one, i wanna know!!

Evidently i work at a food change that serves "atkins friendly" crap and its so funny how many atkins order-ers forget what they want halfway through my making of thier wrap ;)

I have found that the ppl I know on lowcarb diets do tend to be forgetful, and DO snap out and lose their cool too quickly. I think they convince themselves the diet is healthy because they are so hard up to lose weight.

I have debated a bunch of them on a diet debate board for a year now, and they are really brainwashed. Its like a religious cult, but the focus is on food, not religion.

They get really ticked when I tell them how much weight I lost just by changing my lifestyle and going on a lowerfat/PRO-carb "diet", combined with daily exercise. I guess it ticks them that someone could lose 160 lbs without the help of their dear, dead, "Dr" Atkins!
