Down with Atkins

I’m usually not that outspoken about dietary issues, but now that even some of my friends start lauding the merits of the Atkins diet, I feel that I need to do something; because, as a matter of fact, I believe the Atkins diet is a big bunch of bullcrap. Sure, by depleting yourself from carbohydrates and entering a state of ketosis, you burn fat and lose weight; however, besides the at best dubious long term health effects, the chronic lack of glucose means you will perform like an anemic duck during sports, exercise or outdoor activity; energy release from burning fat is slow! My dietary advice: eat a little bit less of everything and work out more.
