Low Carb is Here to Stay

Today's Annals of Internal medicine has the head of Harvard's nutrition department, Dr. Walter Willet, stating that we can no longer dismiss very low-carbohydrate diets. Two weeks ago I was in Arizona for 10 days and had a chance to visit some fast food restaurants. I have written about the low-carb offerings in the newsletter before but it was quite another to actually experience them. I realized that after nearly 10 years of promoting low carb it has finally been accepted as an unequivocal cultural reality. We have a long way to go before the culture wakes up to other basic nutritional truths, but this is a major step in the right direction. I have about 60 years left to facilitate the transformation to the new health paradigm and at this rate it is more than a reasonable goal. David versus Goliath for sure, but Goliath was eventually killed.
