like mixing concrete in your large intestine

Remember when I was saying that eating a lot of fiber didn't sound like a good idea?

Now I find this doctor with a book out that says pretty much the same thing, only in more detail.

The Fiber-related Malnutrition page on his website says it all, as far as I'm concerned: "If fiber blocks water and fats from absorbing, then it blocks all nutrients dissolved in water and fats too!"

So there. Eat more fat!

On a side note, it's amazing how many people misunderstand the principles of the Atkins diet and feel no compunctions about deriding it. Please read the damn book, people. Read it or keep your mouth shut.
