We have a history of, you know, first we eat only grapefruits. Then we decide that eggs are terrible for us, and now eggs are good for us. … We go back and forth all the time, and there’s always some diet craze that’s on the best-seller list. I can’t remember a time in my lifetime when there wasn’t some diet that everybody was saying: ‘You have to eat this.’ They always go away, and they get replaced with something else. But sensible people still have to eat and cook, and I personally think that a world with no carbohydrates is a pretty sad place.
