The low-carb diet trend is having a huge
impact on fast food restaurants. Customers don't want the bun, the
bread, or the sugar candy soft drinks. They want high-protein,
high-fiber meals, and if you restaurants are listening and starting to
deliver what customers want. Those restaurants include Burger King,
Subway, and Carl's Jr.
I think it's an excellent example of how
consumer demand can change the practices of an industry in a free-market
society. And it isn't just fast food restaurants who are paying
attention to the Atkins diet: it's also local, sit-down restaurants who
are increasingly offering low-carbohydrate menu items to customers.
As a person who has avoided refined carbohydrates for nearly a decade,
this is a great relief to me, because it makes it a little bit easier to
eat at restaurants or while traveling. Hopefully, these restaurants
offering low carb menu items will experience a great deal of success
from it, and customers will experience improved health by avoiding
refined carbohydrates in their diets.
