but spare us the "Atkins is right and the rest of you are being duped by the military/industrial/medical complex." Been there, done that, moved beyond it. Try soapbox.com for getting the word on alternative dietary research into the hands of the public, I don't think that's our forum here

Ragg:

Reread my post carefully and you will see I was careful to use words and phrases like I, myself, & for me. You infer that I believe The Atkin's Diet is the mother of all diets, right for everyone. I never said that. You paint me as a right wing wacko who believes there is some conspiricy to keep people fat! Then you show the same arrogance of some in the medical field when you attempt to censor me by telling me to go to soapbox.com!

Your feelings got hurt because I raised valid questions about dietary research. I point out the fact that most Americans are overweight. I also point out the fact that the situation has worsened since the advent of the low calorie/low fat mindset of the medical industry. I defy anyone to rebut that fact. However, I also defy someone to say that any diet is right for anyone, even my precious Atkins Diet! But your angry response inclines me to believe you really think otherwise.

Oh, and one last thing. "Our" forum here is whatever the one posting wishes it to be as long as it is not vulgar, hurtful or racist. Don't tell me what I can and cannot rant and rave about. You don't like it? Just press the Ignored Fools button, O.K.?
