Want to lose weight?
Try the Atkins Hate Diet!
guarenteed to induce weight loss via expending engery doing your bit to hate the Atkins Diet (and other nutritionally insane weight loss regimes).
The community here in is a gathering of people are tired of the Atkins diet and all the other "get thin quick schemes" rearing thier ugly heads. We support eating a nutrition balanced diet and participating in an active lifestyle. This is a place for those of us with common sense to vent our frustrations over the idiocy of fad dieting.
Unlike pro-Atkins sites, we will not shun you from this community if you are on the Atkins diet. However this IS NOT a debate communtiy. If you are here to find out information why physicians, nutitionists, dietians and everyday people oppose the Atkins diet, this is fine, but do not argue, we are not going to change our minds, and we have science on our side.
And yes we know Atkins does cause weight loss, we even know the method in which this occurs (and i hate to break it to you but its mostly water and muscle mass... as in any diet that triggers famine mode in the brain). We also know that low carb diets are caused to compromised vitamin and mineral intake, as well as increase the risk of potential cardiac, renal, bone, and liver abnormalities. And thats just the tip of the iceberg! (see Atkins Diet Alert )
