Default Atkins' Diet

If other apes can make their own needed C in their bodies,
why human, being just another "ape", cannot? As I said,
somewhere, in a book or news item and not a usenet post,
someone claimed this was a clue to human's consumption of a
lot of fruits daily to the effect of poisoning himself by
vitamin C. Those who could make C in themeselves died out
and the rest stayed around and we're the descendents.

The point is not vitamin C. The point is human dependence on
fruit consumption. One more time: If human consumption of
fruits have been so regular and substantial that it has had
evolutionary imprints on us (such as our inability to
manufacture C in our bodies), then how can Atkins Diet
proponents put the consumption of fruits aside without
worrying about _other_ evolutionary imprints that
consumption of large amounts of fruits has had in us?
Imprints like a number of other dependencies on fruits known
and unknown to us at this point.

If we stop eating fruits, we may lose much more than what a
"multivitamin" can provide. How do the Atkins' Diet freaks
explain this?

Atkins diet works because a high protein diet makes you *feel* full with
having eaten less calories than if you'd stuffed yourself with calorific
equivalent of apples and cabbage.

That's it.

They don't have to. We (so-called civilised Westerners) opted out of the
gene pool a long time ago.

You don't know what you're talking about.

It's not really possible to do that. We're still evolving by the same
old method -- the genes of those who die before they procreate get
weeded out of the gene pool. So currently we're breeding for better
car drivers.

Not quite.

It works because you're eating very few carbohydrates, therby forcing your
body into ketosis, a process where it burns your own body fat for energy.

You're able to eat as much eggs, meat, fish and cheese as you like, and can
eat until you're full. Also recommended is a small salad daily for some
variety and nutrition.
