Would you believe they are STILL at it on the NutriSystem board? Yep. Just one post after another bashing Atkins. About half are from the same (usual) person of course. The girl is 48 but she acts 14. As I said, there is none so blind as those who will not see.
Ignorance I can abide. After all, ignorance is simply the lack of knowledge, and a lack of knowledge can be remedied. Willful ignorance is just inexcusable, though, and these people are willfully ignorant. That is the saddest part of the human condition is those who stick their fingers in their ears and refuse to have an open mind about anything. The grain and corn lobbies have done a great job indoctrinating people over the last 30 years. It's very sad, and the American people have paid the sad consequences of that indoctrination in skyrocking obesity and diabetes rates.
I think these NS people just can't handle any truth that differs from the "truth" the grain and corn lobbies have fed them their whole life.
And most of them who did Atkins wrong still think they did it right. I wonder how many actually read the book and ate all the veggies recommended? I'd wager not many.
