It'* just like in the 90s with the no/low-fat diets. It'* a fad.

This past week I found the whole low-carb thing to be over the top when I came across a commercial on TV that was advertising for low-carb DOG FOOD. Come on....give me a break Pedigree. People need to get a grip. It'* over the top and nauseating.

Hey, I was one of those people! Lol.. not on purpose though.. I just drink tons of water at work, so much in fact, that my body was getting dangerously low on electrolytes.. Now I drink half water, half gatorade. Seems to help some.

It was. He stopped eating right after he died.

Diet is just "Die" with a T.

I'm on a Seafood diet. Everything I see, I eat. And it hasn't killed me yet. I'm 37, and I'm fit and trim.

Dood. There'* tumors on your Throttle Body. Better go with the Atkins-friendly fuel from now on.

They could at least get creative, throw in some extra lettuce, and call it a salad or something.

I think the key is a combination of running, weightlifting, abs work, and a 1500 calorie per day diet. Works wonders.
