You Atkins freaks are screwing up the world.... :rant:

I stopped by the store to pick up a couple of steaks for dinner....only to find that beef prices are jacked out of the roof...almost double...

I can't wait for this stoopid fad to die.....

:soapbox:

Also, don't forget all that mad cow stuff...must have an effect on beef prices....and the new Hardee's thick burgers....beef demand is up, and supply is low...basic economics....

If that guy wasn't dead, the Retail Bakers Association would have him whacked. I guess now we're considering digging him up and putting a stake ( steak?) through his heart..

My guess is that the only weight these people will lose in the long run is located in their wallet.

Well, gotta go make some $12.00 per dozen low carb bagels now... :rant:

Crack pot diet only works while you are on it. Stop it for a couple of weeks, pick up some taters and bread and whalla, weight is back on the hips, thighs and tummies. Wanna lose weight, get some running shoes and get out there, lifestyle change baby, it is the only way to keep it off. Okay off the stump.

Beef prices are also up cause the bird flu too...

Hmmm, there is a cat on My Lightning....
the other white meat.... Time to get the 3030 see ya in a bit....


Head shot,, we are good to go...

Atkins has been around for a while, and I hear ya on the BOOM that has suddenly gone wacko with it. I have been toying with the idea...I would not mind dropping a quick 10! trouble is...all that muscle I am building weights more then the fat! :)

The Atkins diet works but it's really stupid and it's not the healthiest thing to do either. Want to lose weight? Quit shoving supersize meals down your throat and start excercising. You need carbs in your diet, you just have to control the intake a little. If the fatasses in this country would just eat right (diet with meat, fruit, veggies, grains, and dairy) and actually excercise, our country wouldn't have such a weight problem. :D

All that ketosis shmetosis mumbo jumbo is just marketing claptrap....

I used to work with some women that loved the atkins diet.We would order pizza and they would eat twice as much because they were not eating the bread.Guess how much weight they lost. :rolleyes:

:smilebig: In-n-Out has had a low carb burger for a long time, ask for 'protein style'.
Really? Damn. I'm not lucky enough to live close to In 'n Out. I only get that treat when I visit friends in San Diego.

:clap: Well said. But that means they'd have to move their fat fingers and put some effort into, and maybe even think some, and that's just more exercise than they're willing to put into it

Two things...
1. Beef prices are up because of a bunch of reasons including the USA limiting (banning still?) imported beef.

2. Atkins diet is a crock. As a qualitative testimonial, my buddy went on it and said he went practically insane... apparently your brain needs carbs and with no carb intake, he said he had a hard time concentrating on anything at all... *shrug* For what it's worth.

Bake,
I can hook you up with a couple real ranch raised steaks if you want. I wish everyone could eat just one GOOD steak, or one good burger.
