Comments: Low Carb Diets in Retreat

Once more the Rant leads the way in providing good, solid and well balanced consumer information. You are absolutely right. Low carb doesn't have to taste bad if you stay away from the packaged items and eat freshly prepared foods. A diet including proteins such as fish, chicken and beef coupled with lots of vegetables and greens can eliminate those carboyhdrate cravings, prevent feelings of hunger, spur weight reduction and provide good improvements in controlling glucose levels. Going easy on the carbohydrates makes tremendous sense particularly for a diabetic. But don't over do the protein consumption especially fatty proteins, which can drive up your cholesterol.

I think the Grampa from Grumpy Old Men had it right when he succintly and defiantly purchased only whiskey, Camels, and bacon at the ripe old age of 95. I think we can all learn something there.......
