Was Dr. Atkins a Fat-ality?
Okay, the war over the Atkins Diet has now come to a head. There are reports circulating that Dr. Atkins was clinically obese when he died (almost 300 pounds) and suffered from heart failure. Of course, the Atkins people are challenging that report, saying that he just gained fluids from the coma he was in before his death. And it turns out the report was released by a vegan group who got it from a doctor who shouldn't have had the report in the first place. But can you really gain 60 pounds from fluids? I wouldn't be surprised if Atkins was a phony. Eat less and exercise, people.
