30 Bananas a Day!

One Atkins preacher continously arguing with me on youtube about the benefits of Atkins, even i told him the Founder Dr. Atkins dead with 258 pound weight and history of myocardial infraction, he said he slipped on ice and died, which i really dont buy. Any thoughts from vegan people about that diet

I once saw a report about it on TV a couple of years ago. I think it was by the BBC and they wanted to find out why such a diet really works. They found out that Ketosis did not make them lose any weight, but they just consumed less calories, maybe because all the fat made them lose their desire for food. In the end the people in the atkins group lost just as much weight as the one on a low-fat diet. They did not go that much into health problems in the long-term though...

meat-free zone here. Eating meat will always make you fat and sad.

i am not a doctor or nutrition expert, i am just common person, and i dont have in depth knowledge about food, but if someone telling me eating whole lot meat protein and fat is good for you is sound insane in first place. How can be proven cancer source be good for your body? personally i believe these people are playing with people help to just make money, and people like the diet because they can eat all that junk and it is reccomended by doctor

I know people on it. They throw away the bun when they get a filet o fish. And they ask for nacho cheese sauce on their giant burgers.

I think its very clogging. I think they know so too and it clogs.

If you want impaired kidneys, osteoporosis, cancer and heart disease its a fantastic diet! What are we all doing wasting our time on here...

OMG I hated doing something somewhat similar called South beach, something I was extremely reluctant to do but my friend wanted to give it a go so I just did it with her (in 2004, just months before I learned about raw vegan) : P She kept scolding me for eating fruit. haha. I had AWFUL thick, unfeminine skin and just felt so not like myself altogether. She, for whatever reason, seemed to be doing well, but I had never felt worse. I was so glad I stopped.

i think into Raw put it pretty well - it's great for clogging the arteries.
the good folks at atkins threatened to sue dr michael greger for badmouthing their diet, but as michael put it, truth still is a valid defense in court. from what i recall, the atkins empire collapsed just as dr atkins did with his weight and heart issues, on the ice of course ... and i think they went into selling candy bars or something.

in friendship,
