Chavez and Mrs. Obama Have Something in Common

Looks like Hugo and Michelle are two peas in a pod.  I say that as a joke, as I clearly don’t think Mrs. Obama is a ruthless dictator, but I do think it is a bit troubling when governments get involved with telling you what to eat.  It will be telling to see if Mr. Chavez takes any steps to force low fat/low cal on his citizens.  I would not want my government to force that or any other way of eating on me (including my beloved low carb lifestyle).

Even the “recommendations” have been detrimental here in the States because schools who take federal money for lunches have to force the guidelines on the kids who eat the dreck in the lunchroom.  Ever since these “recommendations” have come about, diabetes, obesity and heart disease has gotten exponentially worse.  Yet this year, the USDA decided to double down on those recommendations in spite of what the results have been.  Tisk Tisk.

I am a low carb fan and have been for over a year now. Before I discovered this way of eating, I was pre-diabetic, had off the charts cholesterol and high blood pressure. With no meds, all of that stuff is normal now. Thank you so much, Dr. Atkins, for showing me such a wonderful way of eating that is delicious, satisfying and healthy! Even if you don't struggle with your weight, I highly recommend you taking on the low carb way of life. The health benefits to doing so are legion! I have a beautiful wife and two of the most adorable children a dad could ask for.
