Unfortunately, before I understoon the full scope of the problem, I wrote up a ‘compliment’ on the BBB site, but since that time, curiosity got the better of me and I started researching on my own. So, this morning I attempted to delete my positive review, not sure if I was successful or not, but I did change what I wrote to “I am deleting my review…” so hopefully it will be taken off.
I was so psyched in the beginning because I was losing and I wasn’t hungry, which I thought was a good thing, but doesn’t that mean that your metabolism has shut down when you aren’t hungry?
Anyway, after gaining about 5-10 pounds this week from my depressive eating, I am ready to get back on track. I just don’t know who’s track to get on. I have ordered a few books on Amazon and can’t wait to get them in and find the right track for me. In the meantime, I am thinking of starting the Atkins induction phase tomorrow.

I was totally against Kimmer from the first time I registered with LCF, which if I remember correctly was late 2002 or 2003, but under a different screen name. It was SOOO obvious to me that her avitar was a fake and her comments conflicted at times. I was even warned by LCF administrators when I questioned Kimmer’s posts and photos and eventually left this site … but that was then, this is now, and we all have grown past that. I came back with the blessing of the admins here, and just stayed out of Kimmer discussions.
Then I was drawn in by others who “seemed” to have found the magic potion and I decided to try the Kimmer experiment … oh how I wish I had never done that. I can only hope that some day I’ll find my metabolism again.

I started at 165 pounds and lost 20 pounds on Atkins, stalled and then I dabbled in KK and the Meat and Egg fast for a few months.I weighed 145 pounds before KK and decided to use her plan to lose 8 more.
2 years later I’m hypo thyroid and taking medication for the rest of my life and I can’t lose weight DESPITE the fact I walk 3.5 miles every day and burn around 800 calories doing so. I weigh 160 right now. Step away from the ‘diet’ before you screw up your metabolism like I did.
Right now I have serious issues getting my calories over 1200. I’m a smart, mature woman with a degree under my belt. I went to culinairy school to boot.
Kimkins messed with my metabolism and what pisses me off most is that she LIED all the time.
She told me to lower my calories when I wasn’t losing, all the while my thyroid was dying. BE AWARE!!!!!!!
