He struck his head on a sidewalk after slipping on ice.

Krispy Kreme is soo sweet.

I have to agree, Atkins isn't a good diet. How can a "diet" that allows you to eat some of the worst stuff available possibly be good for you? Sure, you might lose weight, but if you have terrible health, is that really for the better?

On iVillage, they have a Atkins page, and here's a quote:

"The Atkins diet plan allows unrestricted amounts of protein, including meats, eggs and cheese, and severely limits foods containing carbohydrates such as pasta, bread and fruit."

Gee, a diet that consists of unrestricted amounts of fatty meats and cheese, but cuts out the healthy fruit and breads! Why didn't I think of it?

Another quote -- from the cons page..

"- Eating unlimited amounts of fat, especially saturated fat found in meat products, can lead to increased risk of heart disease.
- Restricting carbohydrate means eating a low-fiber diet, which can cause constipation.
- Extensive research on healthy populations tells us to eat more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Restricting these foods in the name of weight loss may lead to long-term health problems."

I guess that's why I didn't.

Bottom line is, if you want to lose weight, you can do the most absurd diets to lose weight. But they, for the most part, aren't good for you. For example, Uma Thurman needed to lose weight for Kill Bill, so she ate nothing but chocolate. Sure, she looks great, but I know quite a few people who have done it and they say they felt horrible the entire time. I know Atkins dieters might not physically feel that bad, but it's the principle. Diets can help you lose weight, but they 9 times out of 10 are bad for your health and are ridiculous, not to mention the fact that allowing yourself to eat the stuff that THOUSANDS of no-brainer studies have proved are terrible for you.

Like Tizer said, you need a balanced diet and exercise. It's not that crazy of an idea.

The machines are located in most stores. They usually hand you a free one hot from the oven when you walk in.
