Could it be?

Is the carb craze waning?

Every day seems to bring another low-carb product to grocery shelves. Low-carb beer is old hat. Low-carb colas fight for our soft drink dollars. And who hasn't yet tried a low-carb candy bar?

More low-carb products are waiting in the wings. But their makers may have missed the boat, says Lee Smith, president of InsightExpress, an online research firm. A new study by InsightExpress shows that half of Americans who've tried low-carb diets have given them up. Only one in 10 of us are on low-carb diets, the survey shows. And the trend is down, not up.

"The peak of the low-carb trend may have happened," Smith tells WebMD. "The trend is for people to think they don't want to go on a low-carb diet. They are starting not to purchase the low-carb products that are entering the marketplace."

Read on, here.

You Said

Good, I was beginning to think I was the only person who didn't drink low carb beer (and I've never had a low carb candy bar) - Hershey's with Almonds or Kit Kats for me. Of course, I've never sat through an episode of American Idol or Survivor either, so maybe something's wrong with me.

Good. Get everyone off the bandwagon and leave us diehard low carbers with affordable products. Atkins works great for me. Always has.
