I have to say that I think this is a horribly misleading article and a good example of the ignorance surrounding "low carb".

First of all, while protein is a focal point, so are veggies. Lots and lots of vegetables. Low carb, when you understand it, is about re-training your body and your mind on how you view food. It breaks dependancies on unhealthy products like refined flour and sugar, which offer no nutritional value at all. It encourages you to eat whole, unprocessed foods.

What I have learned is that we're all looking for a means to an end. From what I've seen from people who are maintaining their weight loss successfully, it all comes down to the same thing. Eat whole foods. Avoid sugar.

So if we all get to the same destination, why bash the path that works for someone else?

I am healthier and happier now than I ever was on a low-fat/low-cal eating plan. I've got the blood-work to prove it.
