    Low-carb diets have come in and out for years.

    As for drinking, it's a curious thing to find in any diet, since it's the one sure way, apart from coca cola, to put a gut on - for reasons explained here:

    And as for manly - drink enough and it'll feminize you. However, lots of men - and increasing numbers of women - in our society do drink a lot. It's probably because we have a cultural habit of habitually going for things that temporarily raise blood sugar. I've a friend who's given himself type-two diabetes and had three toes amputated (plus a host of other medical problems), owing to to that cultural propensity. We often used to have a few beers together at the pub, but really in the long run such habits did for him.

    Anyway ... yeah, low-carb diets have been around for a long time, and gone in and out of popularity. Here's a big seller from the 1970s:

    Cool, I love looking at old ads like that, it reminds me that as ridiculous as those things sound everything people are doing now is going to sound just as silly in a few years. And, yeah low-carb has been around probably as long as mass amounts of grains. Ever heard of Banting?

    I think it'd be interesting to find some people who followed this diet 46 years ago and see where they're at now...

    Nice!

    I think the one thing that scares men away from "eating healthy" is the misguided idea that this means cutting out the meat. Fortunately, I always tell guys to start eating MORE... as long as it takes the place of highly-processed and refined foods.

    Pfft, that's nothing. The Primal Blueprint has been around since atleast the 1920s.[1]

    "The classic therapeutic ketogenic diet was developed for treatment of pediatric epilepsy in the 1920s and widely used into the next decade, but its popularity waned with the introduction of effective anticonvulsant drugs."
