But haven't you heard? Haven't you been watching the Hardee's and Subway ads? Bacon is a health food now! Yep, bacon, cheese, and plenty of ranch dressing are all just fine, as long as they're wrapped in a lettuce leaf or a low-carb wrapper of some kind!

Well, we'll see. With seemingly half of America swallowing this stuff (literally and figuratively), we should know soon. Will our average weight, waistline, and cholesterol levels decline?

My husband's numbers after 6 months on Atkins:
Cholesterol: 202 was 210
Triglycerides 130 was 386
Ratio: 4.81 was 7
Weight loss: 20 pounds

Doctor wrote on postcard, 'much better continue diet'

He'd changed from eating cereal every morning to eating bacon, cheese, and eggs every morning. And plenty of ranch dressing and whipping cream.

Fat is not bad for you. Fat does not make you fat. I just really think the former has all been a lie. Time will tell.
