Full description for 500 Low Carb Recipes
Low-fat or low-carb? A recent "New York Times Magazine "(July 7, 2002) cover story answered this question and said that Dr. Atkins was right all along, "its not fat that makes us fat but carbohydrates." Though the government has spent hundreds of millions of dollars in research trying to prove that fat is the cause of obesity, there has been a subtle shift in the scientific consensus over the past five years supporting what the low-carb diet doctors have been saying all along: if we eat less carbohydrates, we will lose weight and live longer.One of the toughest challenges of any diet is having enough variety and choices to keep the dieter from losing interest.
