Around the web with Michael Fumento... He's pinged a number of blogs about his Reason piece. Howard Owen.com reacted the same way I did:
Regular readers may remember that I've linked favorably to, and spoken favorably of the Gary Taubes piece in the NYT on the Atkins Diet.
Michael Fumento has published a long-promised piece debunking the Taubes article.
Frankly, I don't have an answer for it except for this: I've lost 40 lbs on Atkins and since I reached the sub 190 lbs mark, days where I eat carbs, I gain weight, and days I don't, I lose it back (even with similar calorie intakes).
But I'm just one person, so that's hardly scientific evidence. Go read Fumento. It's worthwhile.
Casey Fahy recommends visiting Fumento's site, particularly its Hate Mail section.
