In case you missed the memo: the Atkins diet is bad news.
[Gorran] claimed that the Atkins diet caused his cholesterol to go from 146 to 230 in six months and prompted him to have heart troubles and require an angioplasty…. Judge Chin, though, said that the book was not an ad but a guide for a healthy lifestyle. Plus, Gorran admitted to consuming “large amounts of pastrami and cheesecake, foods the average consumer expects may increase cholesterol levels and the risk of heart disease.”
I can’t say I’d mind seeing warning labels applied to Atkins books, but come on already. Cheesecake is bad for you? Who knew?
