They are just getting slammed by everyone else coming out with low-carb foods. Look in the grocery store, see how many low-carb products are out there now, competing with Atkins, compared to a few years ago.

Yep. We have a decline in low carb consumers, and an influx of larger, more cost efficient retailers entering the market at the same time.

Atkins diet works, but I don't think it should be used as a life-long type of nutritional philosophy. And some people think that eating fatty barbecue ribs with no bread is actually good for them :)

LOL. We've had the lowfat craze of the 80's/early 90's, the low carb craze of the late 90's/early 00's, only thing left is the revolutionary new low protein diet!

The other day my Aunt was frantically searching for a book in the bookstore on the "Three Hour Diet" that all her friends were talking about. I kind of laughed, and told her it's not so much of a DIET as it is a LIFESTYLE, and that I had been doing it for a year or two. She looked really surprised and was like "wow, so you've been on the three hour diet before this guy even invented it!"


I just kind of shrugged my shoulders and went about my business.
