Originally posted by ekedolphinAnyhoo. If you ask me, this low-carb thing is getting very weird. Beer companies had competing ads on the subject. “We've got x less carbs than the other guys.” “Yeah? Well, you can burn x carbs channel-surfing.” Hardee's is selling burgers that don't have bread. And now this.
Low-Carb is pretty effective, all things considered - I lost about 50 pounds or so in 5 months on Atkins before it got a little bit too expensive for my budget. The price of meat and chicken went WAY up, not to mention how much Atkins wants you to pay for a box of cereal ($5.50) or pasta ($6.) It's becoming the 'trendy' thing to do and it's leading to a lot of people doing it incorrectly, imo. From last week at work:
Friend: "I'm doing Atkins. Thankfully BK has these bunless burgers." *Friend smothers burger in ketchup* Me: "You know, there's 3 carbs in a packet of ketchup." Friend: "Is there? Oh hell."

The funniest part was under the "FAQ" section where someone asked if they thought they'd be successful. They responded "we most certainly do; several of our members were already able to delay the release of the movie Phone Booth.
