Dieting Linked to Obesity

I believe dieting causes obesity and not the other way around. Who didn’t start their first diet when they were just a few pounds overweight? Dropped some weight and then put it back on, plus a few pounds more? Kept on repeating this cycle with each attempt ending up at a higher weight? This dieting […]

Diet Addiction

The term addiction is used to describe a recurring compulsion by an individual to engage in some specific activity, despite harmful consequences to the individual’s health, mental state or social life.

Lowcarb Food Pyramid

The USDA food pyramid was latest updated 2005 and is due for a revision in 2010. Can we expect a change from the present recommendation of 45-65% carbs, 10-35% protein and 20-35% fat? I doubt it but it wouldn’t hurt to try. Kimkins Review has a call-out for how you can help. Only by getting […]

Kimkins Laxative Abuse

When checking my blog stats, I noticed that many people end up on my blog from a google search on laxatives for weight loss. How sad. Laxatives are not useful for weight loss. They cause loss of water weight. Not fat loss. The drop on the scale is not permanent. As soon as you replace […]

As the energy will be taken from stored body fat and the […]

Kimkins still a VLCD Diet

Despite recent efforts to try to “clean up”, Kimmer is still pushing very low calories. For the pinky swear challenge that started yesterday, February 1, Kimmer had promised to share some weight loss “secrets”. She announced the first “secret” yesterday; eat like a post-op WLS patient! This is what she said:“I’ll share a secret […]

Kimkins Eating Disorders

Kimorexia, Anorexia and Bulimia

One of the earliest blogs to take up the fight against Kimkins was Kimorexia but as other blogs started to appear, Kimorexia became idle. As of today, it is back in business. WELCOME BACK! And, staying with the subject of anorexia and bulimia, Medusa has a very important post today: ANOREXIA NERVOSA & BULIMIA NERVOSA…AND […]
