I guess the company should have trimmed a bit more fat to help it survive

I know some people found they could lose weight on it but there was definately something wrong with people eating the cheese off the Pizza and the burger without the bun.

Excellent! I shall be cooking potatoes with rice, bread and pasta to celebrate!
Atkins was really a load of old shite wasn't it? Hope the South Beach Diet goes the same way soon and people stop buying into these money spinning rackets.
Susan Powters book "Stop the Insanity" is pretty good at exposing the diet industry for what it is, - a way to make money, lots and lots of money. While keeping everyone overweight while they chug down diet foods.
Same way drug companies in America are turning everyone into patients.

Well what's better for a drug company?

A vaccination, or preventative medicine?

Am I being cynical?
