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.

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