So much at steak
Poor old Dr Atkins. Poor old fat, dead Dr Atkins.
This is the crux of the high-carb biscuit:
Dr Atkins weighed more than 18st when he died after a fall on an icy footpath in New York last April.
The post-mortem report was revealed in the Wall Street Journal, which received it from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, which opposes the Atkins Diet.
Eighteen stone equals 252 pounds.
The Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, apparently, is a front group for PETA, which certainly explains why they'd oppose the Atkins Diet.
Remind me to grill a rib-eye this evening.
