The Secret Of Loaded Carries  "The loaded carry does more to expand athletic qualities than any other single thing I've attempted in my career as a coach and athlete. And I do not say that lightly."—Dan John

The Atkins Diet Updated  "Atkins didn't teach the "net carb" idea. That's bringing in the low-glycemic research from experts around the world who taught us that the fiber in the foods isn't really absorbed and has a negligible effect on the blood sugar. That opens up more options because people can have more vegetables early on."Dr. Eric C. Westman

Here's my "favorite" part of the article:

"The content of the diet is inconsistent with everything we know about a heart-healthy diet," says Dr. Robert Eckel, past president of the American Heart Assn. and a professor of medicine at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Eckel is concerned about "what's in it and what's not in it" — too much saturated fat and not enough fruits, vegetables and whole grains, he says."

Dr. Eckel, apparently, went to medical school and completed his training in the 70's.  Perhaps the good doctor hasn't followed up on "recent" discoveries in the diet and nutrition field.  Saturated fat NOT consumed with a large quantity of carbohydrates isn't the killer it was thought to be and whole grains are still grains.  Grains are not meant for us to eat, whole or otherwise.

Turns out Atkins was pretty much right since at least 1972, the year before Dr. Eckel completed med school, and many doctors, as you read this, still have very little understanding of what constitutes a healthy diet.
