Basal Metabolic Rate

The Harris Benedict formula is often recommended to calculate basal metabolic rate (BMR) in order to determine how many calories we should eat to lose weight. Basal metabolic rate is the energy the body burns in total inactivity and it is not recommended to go below this number. In addition, an “activity factor” is used […]


Fat Phobia

Are you afraid of using fats when cooking? Avoiding fat cuts of meat? Buying “no fat” or “low fat” products? You are not alone. Most of us are brainwashed to believe that fat is bad for us and that eating fat makes us fat. This misconception seems to be based on two factors: Fat has […]


Get A Life

Wikipedia: “Get a life” is an originally American idiom and catch phrase usually intended as a taunt, to indicate that the person being so addressed is devoting an inordinate amount of time to trivial or hopeless matters. The phrase has also appeared as a generally more emphatic variant of the taunt “get a job” and […]


Kimkins when Traveling

Is it even possible? For me, it wouldn’t be. Look at a typical Kimkins approved meal as illustrated in my post here: Kimkins Food How could I possibly eat like that when traveling? 4 oz chicken and a “finger grab” salad for dinner? Egg white omelet instead of the breakfast buffet? Not a chance. I […]


Back in My Skinny Jeans

I don’t do Kimkins. I eat. Beef, pork, chicken thighs. Plenty of fats. As much veggies as I want. The only thing I limit is carbs and I’m not even strict with that. I don’t count anything. As I have found out, what I eat will not make much of a difference for me. Only […]


Kimkins No Exercise Diet

That is how the Kimkins starvation diet is promoted. Get slim without ever having to break a sweat. Look like the pretty girl in the red dress after you have lost 200 pounds in one year and are 49 years old. Of course, now we know that she really looks like this: Seems that the […]


New Anti-Kimkins Blog

I started a blog on blogger back in September 2007. All the posts on that blog, mariasol have been copied here, just because it’s easy to do with WordPress. From now on, however, the posts here and there will be different. I will still write about the Kimkins Diet Scam on both blogs but not […]


2 More Weeks of Magic Chicken

Domain Name: MAGICCHICKENDIET.COM Created on: 02-May-07 Expires on: 02-May-08 The Magic Chicken Diet that was made as a clone of Kimkins (both the web site and the diet itself) might be gone in a couple of weeks if the domain is not renewed. We have already seen a number of former pro-Kimkins sites being put […]


A Gem from Article-Gems

UPDATE: Article Gems decided to listen to us and has removed the articles! We have been all over the internet to pull kimkins weeds. One place kimkins articles were found was Article-Gems. They did not respond too well to emails sent by “angry weigh loss people”: Running an article directory – like article-gems is not […]


Kimkins Blog

Kimmer’s blog posts have been very poor lately. Going from counting calories in lettuce to pointing out that nutrition labels on Ritz crackers are wrong. The latest post is announcing: “A few days ago Good Morning America did a segment on whether food nutrition labels are accurate. Guess what! They aren’t and the US government […]
