You know what these anti-carbs people are? Evil, I tell you! Evil!

This morning, I was in a rush to get out of the house. I opened the fridge to see if there was anything I could eat on the go for breakfast. I saw all these slimfast cans. If I'm going to have a liquid breakfast, I usually prefer something fruity, but I figured, how bad could it be? Well, let's see. Not only was this a slimfast shake, but it was a slimfast shake that was for people on low-carb diets. It was so gross. It claimed to be chocolate-flavored. Right. It was this odd consistency...kind of watery...and somewhat chalky. However, in addition to the taste I typically associate with these sorts of shakes was this other subtly disturbing taste that I cannot describe with words, other than to say that it was yucky. I was taught to finish my food, so I drank it all like a good girl, but dang, it was difficult. Even as I type, a look of utter disgust cannot help but creep up on my face as I remember the horrific experience of the morning.

This whole anti-carb craze has gotten way out of control. First we have low-carb shakes and now we have this ridiculous C2 and Pepsi Edge with 1/2 the calories, 1/2 the carbs? It's just a marketing scam! They just replaced half the sugar with Nutrasweet for goodness' sake! If you're so scared of carbs, just drink diet soda...or better yet, drink water! You're not going to be healthy if all you do is try to manipulate your diet. Nothing will happen if you just deprive yourself of carbs and don't get that heart pumping. Get your ass off of the couch! I mean, I'm a fatass, but I know why! Because I sit on my butt all day! I mean, why not exercise so that you can eat a balanced meal with carbs? Deprive myself of bread? Gawd, I'd rather die.
