Food Matters

The things they do with surf. Even Atkins is jumping on the theme advertising bandwagon, to promote its health bars. I've never been convinced by Atkins' diet, e.g. avoid vegetables but gorge on bacon: hellooo? In all fairness though, many Americans shed weight on the diet -- probably because they were so out of control before.

When it comes to food and diet in general, this country certainly has its own culture and [corporate] approach. In this ad, restaurants, food producers and so-called pro-choice consumers have joined forces to fight back the "food cops", and the series of lawsuits brought by consumers who supposedly got rotund on their fare. Accountability, anyone?
