Count me out of the movement

I am a vegetarian and despise the Atkins diet for a number of reasons, but if this is the type of “evidence” that the vegetarian activists are relying on to discredit it, they need to make a break with their consciences long enough to shoot themselves…


Hmm. I consider most activists to be wrong headed at the best of times. I have no idea why it's anyone elses business what I eat.

If you must know, it's not the Atkins diet itself I hate, though it is annoying that at some restaurants I find considerably less vegetarian items now than in the past in favor of "Atkins-friendly" items, but what I really despise is the propoganda machine surrounding it, the ads I see on my screen informing me that all manner of desserts, cookies, ice cream, even Reese's cups for christ's sake, are all good "Atkins-friendly" diet foods simply because they don't have many carbohydrates (as if straight fructose and fat were better!). The sheer will to be deceived on the part of all these "dieters" is astounding, and while I appreciate the right of the food industry to use scientific research, much of it actually valid, to straight-out lie to consumers, I can still despise it, as is my right. The point I was trying to make is that the anti-Atkins activists are stooping to tactics just as low and dishonest, claiming the fluid mass gain in Dr. Atkins' body while he lay in a coma as evidence of his "obesity," as well as the general mendacity and charlatanism of implying that his own lifestyle should be the fundamental criterion for judging the validity of the diet. Again, I have no intention of questioning the right of either side to act as they do, but the lies and deception dig a little deeper when people's healths and, at least in my opinion, genuine moral concerns are at stake.

I think that if people are so foolish as to be decieved into thinking that a reeses cup is good for you, then prehaps they deserve to be weeded out. Death by chocolate.

Do not try to fault a restaurant for marketing its product.

Those atkins faggots are annoying as hell. I hate them. The only thing I hate more than those atkins assholes are vegetarians. I fucking hate vegetarians.

Vegetarians are scum, they should all be killed and then fed to Carnivourous animals..that will teach them a lesson.

I would love to eat a vegetarian! Does anyone know how to prepare one? What type of cut is best?
