No-carb eating couple booted from buffet

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) -- A couple on a low-carb diet were kicked out of a buffet restaurant after the manager said they'd eaten too much roast beef. (

Now the truth comes out. True nutritious food is low-carb food. The stuff on a buffet line that has any nutritive substance is nearly always low in carbs and/or high in protein. The rest is, well, "empty filler," some of which, like refined carbs and sugars, approaches the nutritional value and metabolic effect of crack cocaine. And the kicker: buffet restauranteurs know that the carbs are where they make their money, by getting customers to fill up on cheap breads, rice, pasta, muffins, biscuits, puddings, cherry cobblers, and chocolate mousse, so they don't eat as much of the roast beef, top sirloin, blue cheese, aged cheddar, crab legs, oysters, and shrimp.
