Passing Fancy?

The way things always seem to happen in this country, something comes along and attracts some attention. Usually starts with a small group somewhere, catches on slowly but surely, and before you know it, everyone is into it, people are talking about it everywhere. It permeates the culture, the fad becomes a craze, and even the most "un-hip" of people are singing its praises.

The something funny happens. Starts becoming obvious that it wasn't all it was cut out to be. It isn't as good for you as people thought, and because people didn't really listen, they were into it without knowing too much about it.

The fad starts to fade, and where you once thought it was the best thing ever, you now find empty shelves, and people who proclaimed it as gospel, now want pretty much nothing to do with it. The craze ends, and it pretty much goes away.

No, not HipHop, I'm talking about the Atkins Diet.


  1. And South Beach shall soon follow.

  2. Isn't that the truth.....about a lot of things.

  3. Hasn't every diet known to man suffered a similar death?

  4. I just heard of Alli...I hope that doesn't fade!

  5. I guess you have to try the diet to understand. why. I have tried it & know why it didn't work. You are so limited to this diet & especially for breakfast. The the best diet is Weight Watchers, but it's all about portions, healthy foods, exercise & CONTROL.
    I am working on all..; )


I love comments. I won't lie about that!
