High protein/low carb diets are all the rage these days. Dr. Robert C. Atkin's praised such a diet back in 1972 and recently his theories have been validated by some credible studies. Every week we're reading about another chain restaurant introducing low or no carb menu items to satisfy the thousands on this diet trying to lose those extra pounds. People are actually ordering hamburgers without the bun and skipping the fries completely.
If in fact carbs are the problem, I'm toast. Really, you can bury me now. My name is Mike and I'm a carb addict.
For me it's all about the carbs. I love bread. Give me a fresh kaiser, croissant or French stick and I'm a happy man. Nothing pleases me more than a piece of toast. If you offerred me any meal in the world right now, I very well may choose a nice meat lasagna, spaghetti and meatballs or a fresh pepperoni pizza. I could eat cereal all day long if I had too. Most of my favourite meals are loaded with carbohydrates.
As the world collectively reduces their carb intake, I find myself left behind. I don't really have a choice, I'm addicted to carbs. Guess what I'm eating tonight? That's right, pasta. Sigh.
