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 […]


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 […]


Colon Cleanse

There are thousands and thousands blogs and web sites that deal with colon cleansing. They claim that we build up toxins, and even have parasites and critters, in the colon that need to be removed. Of course, these sites sell products to help us do so. Plus claiming that cleansing is beneficial for weight loss. […]


How Much Fiber?

How much fiber should I eat? It’s not easy to find an answer to that question. FDA says 28 grams, minimum (14 grams per 1,000 calories). Numerous google hits tell me that “high fat, low fiber” causes constipation. Of course, none of them say anything about the total carb consumption on the low fat diet […]


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. […]


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 […]


Kimkins Causing Eating Disorders

Kimmer is always saying that ALL overweight people already have an eating disorder – being fat is proof of disordered eating. I don’t agree. I know many overweight people that do not have what I would call an unhealthy relationship with food. They eat what they want and just don’t care about being heavier than […]


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 […]


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 […]


Laxatives for Weight Loss

It’s a MYTH. Since most of the calories eaten are absorbed by the small intestine right after eating, the method of using laxatives for weight loss is actually ineffective. Many laxatives act by irritating the lining of the intestines or by directly stimulating nerves. Continual over stimulation of the intestines form laxative abuse can eventually […]
