Atkins Belly-Up?

Not So Fast

After the 2003 death of its founder and namesake, Atkins Nutritionals, Inc., had to file Chapter 11 Bankruptcy protection.

This might be due to the fact that the Atkins diet has been treated as a fad, a quick weight loss, temporary crash diet. As anyone knows who has ever followed Dr. Atkins’ principals of low-glycemic carbs balanced with moderate amounts of protein and fat, (a) the diet works, and (b) all body fat lost will be re-gained upon the diet’s abandonment.

Low-Carb is a lifestyle, a philosophy, even a religion to some. It’s an entire paradigm shift in one’s relationship with food and with the earth that provides it, in one’s sense of history and kinship with past generations of relatives human and pre-human, and with the Creator who put it all there.

I believe this is the “problem” with the Atkins diet: No one actually reads the book, but everyone knows about it.

Everyone has heard some frumpy woman in the lunchroom at work say something along the lines of: “My neighbor’s friend’s daughter-in-law did the Atkins diet and lost 20 pounds in 3 weeks for her reunion… I lost 14 pounds on it once for my cousin’s wedding. It’s easy, just eat all the meat and cheese you want, but don’t eat any bread.” After a month of ketosis, the dieter binges on pizza and Coke and bounces back to her corpulent self.

But if one actually takes the time to read one of the late doctor’s books, read his magazine, or visited any of the newsgroups on the ‘Net, one would learn that Atkins is a life-long choice. It is a new way of seeing foods for their macro-nutrients: Rice and pasta are no longer staples, they’re garnishes. Bread retires its title as Staff-of-Life and becomes little more than a condiment, reborn in the shape of croutons. Forget about soft drinks.

So it’s no wonder that the company, having invested too much energy and money in recent years competing in the convenience foods market of snack bars and TV dinners, finds itself over-extended.

Let us just hope that this re-organization actually will “not affect its day-to-day operations.”

genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stoc,k appears poised for growth! This one will not

KEEP READING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Globa| Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth
before they can be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for
lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number
of other benefits. Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and
the lack of oils and sap found in the wood make it resistant to forest fire,
ensuring higher returns on investments.
he wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140
Million with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With
anticipated growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during
its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153
Million in revenues. As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree
continues to grow around the world EGTY believes additional multi-million
dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of
250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business
owners in New Zealand, Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular
and profitable fast growing infant tree plants. Inquiries from the governments of
Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.


The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little

I think the entire Atkins story is funny. The guy was fat when he died! Check out this new blog about Iran. Freedom in Iran requires Revolution. I'm starting to believe that.
