I won't wade into the new "Now we're REALLY confused about what to eat!" syndrome surrounding the NYT Magazine's misleading and recklessly biased cover story alleging that Atkins and his lo-carb hi-protein snake-oil brethren have achieved some kind of nutritional credibility, except to point out the indisputable: These diets are bad for your long-term health, ergo bad nutrition. I'll only point to one of the many stories detailing the effects (here it's taxed kidneys and weakened bones) of such reckless eating patterns, but it seems a new one comes out every couple weeks.
