Obviously this would depend on how much one eats of any given product.
We do spend a significant amount on food and are okay with that EXCEPT
that it seems like any trend that happens tends to increase the prices of
our products. Like someone said before, I do wish someone would come
out with a book that would make OUR stuff cheaper and more easily
One another thing I wanted to bring up. I have actually read the SBD (but
not Atkins) and agree generally with a lot of his points. However, I think
he would agree that whole foods should make up the bulk of one's diet, no
matter WHAT kind of diet you sould follow. I have a lot fo respect for Dr.
I have NO respect for Dr. Atkins (rest in peace) or his family for putting his
name on a line of processed foods that are FULL of transfats and carcinogens.
That's what really gets me peeved when I walk by that new aisle in our
store--that healthy, whole grain products have been replaced by transfats,
carcinogens, and WHITE FLOUR processed foods. Read the label of those
Atkins products. You'll see what I mean.
I wish Dr. Agatson would come right out and pan those processed bars. Then
I might be less angry about the low-carb thing and believe that they're really
interested in health as opposed to profit.
