Returning to Kimkins

The Kimkins Diet website was launched in June 2006 but had a rather obscure existence until an article in Women’s World magazine caused a large influx of customers one year later. Many people tried the diet but rightly decided that the diet was not sustainable and disappeared. The $59.95 membership fee was written off as […]


Low Carb Fiber

One of the main concerns for people starting a low carb diet is the apparent lack of fiber in the diet. I say “apparent” because it’s really a misconception. One of those accepted “truths” that keeps on being repeated over and over again. The FDA recommends 28 grams of fiber for a 2,000 cal diet. […]

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 […]


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 […]

They did not respond too well to emails sent by “angry weigh loss people”: Running an article directory – like article-gems is not […]

Sockpuppets

Wikipedia: A sockpuppet is an online identity used for purposes of deception within an Internet community. In its earliest usage, a sockpuppet was a false identity through which a member of an Internet community speaks while pretending not to, like a puppeteer manipulating a hand puppet. In current usage, the perception of the term has […]


Maintaining Weight Loss

Any VLDC (Very Low Calorie Diet) such as Kimkins will cause you to lose weight. How could it not? Eating 500, or even 800, calories per day has to result in weight loss. Your body is burning calories whether they come from food or your stored fat/muscle. If you start at a high weight, the […]
