I oppose 'nutritionism' which is the newly-minted term for people who are beset by a sort of cultish veneration of a particular diet.
My standard advice is to run from people who insist that they've found the diet for everyone and that all other diets are dangerous or sub-par.
Can't say I'm a nut about it (read: I just squashed a 50-count Dunkin Donut munchkin box over the past week) but I can't say that it's a BAD diet. I love me some bread but, after thinking about it, what am I really getting out of bread other than taste? I'd argue (perhaps in error) not much. No doubt it's lowered my calories, combine that with a 6+ mile bike ride everyday to and from work and playing an exuberant amount of sports, which I guess is the real benefit.
