Dr. Atkins was not an original

It turns out that someone else came up with the low carb diet 150 years earlier then him: http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110125/ap_on_he_me/us_med_healthbeat_dieting_history;_ylt=AvCWWrFuYvKfuad3oSOJMRjVJRIF;_ylu=X3oDMTMyODFtb2kwBGFzc2V0A2FwLzIwMTEwMTI1L3VzX21lZF9oZWFsdGhiZWF0X2RpZXRpbmdfaGlzdG9yeQRjcG9zAzMEcG9zAzYEc2VjA3luX3RvcF9zdG9yeQRzbGsDMTUweWVhcnNvZmRp

Yes, fad dieting has a long history, so it's amazing that people haven't caught on that they JUST DON'T WORK.

Sorry, a eating a special cookie for six weeks isn't going to do anything for you weight-wise, if you go back to eating fast food and doing nothing but sitting on the sofa all day.

If you really want to lose weight, and keep it off, you have to make real permanent changes to how and what you eat. You also have to learn to move more.

It's that simple. No one said it better than Jack LaLanne, so in homage to him, we'll let him explain it.


  1. You're absolutely correct that most diets out there don't work as they say they will. I believed the hype for a while until I ran across the book by Michael Snyder, M.D. called Full: A Life Without Dieting. You will move from persistent dieting to living true to yourself and from being unhappily overweight to being a healthy individual. Reading this book and following the tips helped me lose almost 30 lbs!
