Default BBC Real Story Program....Truth or Rubbish you decide

I very new to this diet (one week and a 11 pounds lighter) I have just watching the BBC program Real Story on the Atkins diet.
I was amazed they had the Three Stooges to be the test subjects. It could have been worse they could of used Doctors to do this (they did) if you missed the program on how not to do the Atkins by the Three Stooges then you can see it again at also you may wish to pass your comments on to the producer of the show.
Iím new to the diet but I did read the book and I certainly claim to know more that the doctors on the program who were bombastic and arrogant.
It a shame that a fine organisation like the BBC have let the people who pay there wages down.

I await your comments

Two words: High Protein.

I severely doubt that cheating was the reason anyone was sick. More likely they didn't read the books and did not eat many of the wonderful high-fiber foods we are allowed (almonds, for example). Also, they may have been following the old Atkins Induction for a whole month (suicide). But there was no way, if they had actually followed Atkins, that it could have happened.
