Low-carb is inexorably linked to the way Americans eat today.

Restaurants from TGI Fridays to Subway to KFC has added low-carb menu options, and supermarkets are full of low-carb products. South Beach, Weight Watchers, the Zone and Sugar Busters have all taken a page out of Atkin's book and emphasize the importance of low-carb intake.
