Question about Atkins

Whenever I follow Atkins, I avoid saying that I follow Atkins, because it paints a picture of nothing but meat, bacon, and more meat, followed by a pat of lard.
 
When following Atkins, I tell people I'm on a health food diet that consists of mostly vegetables, mostly in the form of raw salads.  Supplemented with as much organic meat as I can reasonably afford, and home-made salad dressing made from Extra virgin Olive Oil, and naturally fermented apple vinegar.  I limit myself to one half-serving of fruit a day.  And that is the Atkins' diet.  And most people would never argue that it's very healthy.
Miss Fluffy, just because they don't or won't argue that it's healthy does not mean that it IS healthy and IT'S NOT! Most fruits and veggies in the stores today are dead and depleted of most their trace mineral and even some macro mineral content so they are not healthy. Most people think black or purple carrots would be unhealthy and unnatural but in fact the orange carrot did not become popular until the American settlers started producing just the orange kind. The facts show that we were healthier when we eat more animal fats and less sugar especially inverted white sugar and no soybeans or their oil, the problem today is that the meat is different even before they kill it: most cattle are fed in feedlots today which means they'll eat most grains, but the sad fact is that they are fed newspaper at times and other such non-foods such as soy and cottonseeds. Cattle are meant to be grazed and pastured on fresh green grass with sunshine and fresh air and water and as well that means they must move to get their food and so get exercise.
