Another Newspaper Prints My Rebuttal To Anti-Atkins Form Letter

I noticed today that The Wichita Falls (TX) Times Record News printed my letter to the editor about this recent letter they received from someone local to their newspaper.

Following the printing of my rebuttal letter in the Columbia Daily Tribune last week, here is the one that ran in this latest newspaper:

A letter to the editor was recently printed in your newspaper ("Diet consequences," Aug. 5) and was vaguely familiar to me when I saw it. It was about how the bankruptcy announcement of the Atkins Company proves the failure of the low-carb diet.

As a former 410-pound man who lost 180 pounds in 2004 by following the Atkins plan, I could not disagree with that characterization more. The low-carb lifestyle — as so many of the millions of us who are on low-carb like to refer to it — has been the easiest, best-tasting and most effective way to bring our weight under control after a lifetime of yo-yo dieting. Thanks to livin’ la vida low-carb, I will never be morbidly obese again. This miracle weight-loss plan literally saved my life.

The letter that was printed sounded like it was genuine from the person who sent it in. But unfortunately this exact same letter has already appeared now in over 100 other newspapers throughout the United States in just the past six weeks.

Do a Google search of "Old Abe" and "Atkins" and you will find a very long list of newspapers who were also duped into printing this bogus letter. Is that not the strangest thing you’ve ever heard of in your life?

The concerted effort by those who vehemently oppose the low-carb lifestyle proves to me that they are a minority voice among those who desire lasting weight loss. Low-carbers know this way of eating works and are living proof of that fact. The radical behind-the-scenes agenda to undermine and destroy the healthy low-carb lifestyle by those who oppose it has never been clearer to me.

We'll keep shining the light on these anti-Atkins nuts until the truth exposes them for who they really are!

10-6-05 UPDATE: Another one of my letters was printed in the Cave Creek, AZ-based Sonoran News. One by one, we'll take on these radical idiots and challenge their very existence.
