It's nice to be vindicated

Carolyn, great article - thanks! Here's a telling quote: "And packing an imposing 19 grams of carbohydrates -- a 14 percent improvement over the original's 22 grams -- the whole wheat edition is about equal to a nutrient-packed energy bar but without the nutients, unless one includes caramel and glazed sugar as important food groups."

Well duh. If caramel and glazed sugar aren't important food groups, then what is? Other than the previously mentioned crust/bread, cheese, sour cream, etc.

I'm a little confused though by the wording - that having fewer carbs is supposedly an "improvement." We're athletes, people, ever hear of carb-loading?? I think that must have been a typo.
