Kimmer copies information from various sites to her blog, typically without reference to the source. She also has no problem editing the text to suit her purposes.
In a post today, titled “High Fat Diets and High Blood Pressure”, Kimmer says:
“In a study of healthy young women, one group ate a high fat fast food breakfast while another group ate a healthy balanced one.
Two hours later the women performed a stressful task.
The fast food group didn’t fare so well and their blood pressure readings went haywire from the stress. The healthy eaters fared fine.
This “inflammatory response” happens at all times of the day after high fat meals.”
She credits “.. Journal of Nutrition 2007”
While I didn’t find the original article in “Journal of Nutrition”, I did find it on RealAge. While the result is still misinterpreted on RealAge (blaming fat instead of carbs), they at least include the correct information about the meals being compared in the study:
“In a study of healthy young women, one group was given a fatty fast-food breakfast (two hash-brown patties, a sausage breakfast sandwich, and an egg breakfast sandwich), while another group took a low-fat morning meal (cereal, skim milk, fat-free yogurt, fruit bar, and orange juice).”
How can this study be used to support the Kimkins Diet? It’s comparing high carb/high fat with high carb/low fat. How is that relevant to a low carb diet?
But perhaps Heidi was pressed for time today, with the court hearing and all. Just grabbed the first thing that she came across. How much difference is a little more fraud going to make?
