you can find support for just about any kind of food quackery in our crunchy community, but it is OK to be disrespectful of people who have bought into the 'lowfat = thin' propaganda all their fat lives, & finally have had good results with limiting their carbohydrates?
it is not about pounding as much bacon & butter into your life as possible, it is about insulin responses to sugar in your diet, & limiting them. carbohydrates turn into sugar in your body- period.
when my dh first talked about doing this, i was skeptical. but he was so adamant, i felt like i should research beyond what i heard someone told katie couric on gma- and what i found was not the hysterical 'your kidneys will die!' spiel that everyone believes.
here is a book that has a little more realistic plan in what is allowed carb-wise than good dr atkins: 'Protein Power' by Drs Michael & Mary Dan Eades- check your library. it was better for me to at least know some facts (even if i wasn't persuaded, which i was) before arguing.
mystichealermom is right- it sounds like your dh is not drinking NEARLY enough water, sleepies (and frankly, my dh smells much better 40 lb thinner. ketosis don't stink if enough water you drink!
) you sound angry, & i don't blame you, sounds like he needs to modify his plan a lot! - but if you support him, & help educate both of you, it will be better for your relationship than castigating him for trying to improve his health.
ps wild oats has some sprouted breads that are pretty low carb, when he just has to have a sandwich! blueberries, melon, low carb atkins endulge! chocolate (oh man, that's good- i eat it for the taste!)... mushrooms, so many delicious foods are low carb w/out having to make some ersatz atkins bread with soy & whey (which i have done- oh, it was *edible*, but...)
yeah, splenda ain't 'natural', but neither is agriculture. and ps, there are atkins diet vegans out there- it's about protein, not just meat.
good luck, & i hope things work out for you both- suse
