In light of the original article, and the follow-ups about Lillian Russell, I just had
to post this news here - Atkins is bankrupt!
I see this as an amazing triumph of Lillian Russell and timeless beauty over modern weight-loss pushers. Despite all their non-stop promotion, either directly through ads, or indirectly by throwing stick-thin models in our faces all the time, they still
couldnt keep their heads above water. I hope the rest go out of business soon, as well.
And I hope this means that a lot of women are spending their money on better things in life than on punishing themselves for no reason. Maybe people are realizing that some pretty clothes and a nice hairstyle will do way more for anyones beauty than paying someone to tell you how to starve....
