hCG / hhCG Facts

There is no actual hCG in the homeopathic hhCG. None. It’s just expensive water and alcohol. The amount of hCG in the injections is insignificant and will not cause any effect on the body whatsoever. This was confirmed by an alleged doctor that prescribes hCG. The injectable hCG is RX, which means that a prescription […]


The 6 Week Cure

I pre-ordered the new Protein Power book, The 6 Week Cure for the Middle-Aged Middle. Now, I didn’t have much use for a 6 week cure myself as I have been successful in keeping my middle relatively slim. However, I was interested to see what they had to say about the cause of it. I […]


Tired of Diet Scams

My local radio station is blasting weight loss ads for everything from Evercleanse (lose 10 – 25 pounds of toxic waste from your colon!) to a skin care company (!) that now has developed a diet pill. Online is even worse. New “diet” supplement ads pop up all the time. There must be money to […]


Beware of “Natural” Weight Loss Supplements

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that there is a range of diet pills being sold nationwide, as well as over the internet, that are now considered unsafe. FDA suggests to consult with your health care professional before taking dietary supplements to treat obesity or other diseases. All consumers should be familiar with […]


HCG Diet

HCG stands for Human Choriogonadotropin, the hormone produced by pregnant women in the early stages of pregnancy. Research suggests a small, daily hcg injection (approx. 125 IU to 200 IU) results in a weight loss of 1 to 2 lbs per day, and often more, when accompanied by a VLCD (very low calorie diet) of […]

Diet Role Models

From this Kimkins Diet disaster, it’s obvious that pictures of pretty girls sell diets. Especially if the diet founder, the one selling her diet experience and success, is the pretty girl. Of course, we all know by now that Kimmer, a.k.a. Heidi Diaz, was not the woman in the red dress, neither is she the […]


Kimkins Survivors

Do you know of any other diet that has a blog dedicated to “survivors” of the diet? I don’t. I have never heard of any “survivors” of Weight Watchers, Atkins, or any other diet. Sure, there are many that fail on the diet and regain any weight lost, but rarely do you hear of any […]


Faster than Kimkins

I have lost 5 pounds the last week. From 128.8 lbs to 123.8 lbs. My calories were 1600 – 1800 per day. And no, I didn’t exercise a lot. I did go to the gym 4 times but burned no more than perhaps 200 calories per time. So what did I eat? Pork spareribs, beef […]


Kimkins Maintenance Plan

Is there such a thing? Not to my knowledge. The very few people that have followed Kimkins to goal seem to maintain the weight by still doing Kimkins. Experimenting with adding a few carbs, then cutting back again to take off any weight regain. A typical yo-yo approach that will work as long as you […]
