Hack your Metabolism
has an article about Hackers on Atkins
, and in a shameless display of self-aggrandizement, yours truly is featured in the company of uber-bloggers Cory Doctorow
and Doc Searls
. As my brother smirked to me in an email response after reading the article, "four overweight guys lose weight! stop the presses!", my response was to quote from Cory in the article:
"Maybe it will make us all grow third arms and go blind in 20 years," quips Doctorow. "It's sort of hard to tell. It represents a kind of hacker's approach, grounded as it is in jack-legged engineering rather than science."
The only other thing that I want to make clear about Atkins is that it clearly isn't for everybody. It is a radical change in eating habits, not well-suited for everyone, especially vegetarians. I can only speak from my own personal experience that it works for me
