Low-carb Potatoes

This has to be one of the silliest new developments in food production. See - Potato growers eye low-carb spuds - Jun 22, 2004. Talk about jumping on the low-carb bandwagon.

These people should put as much time and money into something more useful such as finding a cure for cancer. I'm sure the world could live without low-carb potatoes!

For those trying to lose weight on low-carb diets, this is NOT the answer. The article states:
Colette Heimowitz of the Atkins Health & Medical Information Services, said potatoes are not recommended until a dieter reaches a goal weight.

"Once they achieve their weight loss, it is fine," she said, noting the same carbohydrate reduction offered by the new potato could be accomplished by eating a third less of a regular potato.
