Now the general public has embraced the concept.  Agatston, author of The South Beach Diet, takes the approach of urging dieters to eat "the right carbs" - fruits and vegetables and, eventually, whole grains - but it still means forgoing the "white carbs" - white potatoes, white bread, white rice and pasta (except for whole wheat pasta) - for the rest of your life.
