I think a lot of us are suffering Post Kimmers Stress Syndrome and feel kind of lost and betrayed. I never felt like I fit in there so the transition was easy. All along I knew that Atkins was my way, I had lost 200 pounds before on it (and I have real pictures to prove it!) But I was so desperate for the “quick fix” that I was willing to become a “Kimmer Zombie.” HEY I LIKE THAT PHRASE!!
Anyway, older and wiser now. I have been Atkins (with the exception of a bite of my daughter’s PBJ sandwich 2 days ago) I don’t know how much, if any, I’ve lost, but my moods are better, no more fuzzybrain, and I feel better. I have energy again and I KNOW I’m getting the nutrients I need. Plus, I haven’t abused laxatives since then!!!

Jeannie is terribly misleading. I sent my diet log personally to Kimmer/Heidi and was instructed to reduce my calories (running around 700 at the time) and my protein “If I wanted faster losses.” When I was a member on KimKins, I complained that I was stalling due to starvation mode and was chastized that there was no such thing! All I had to do was lower my calories further! Constipated? Take 1/2 the usual dose of Milk of Magnesia daily, that’ll keep the pipes working. This coming from Heidi/Kimmer, an obese woman who enticed us with fake photos and her own fake FitDay diet weight loss log & journal. Makes me question everything now. I CARE about who this Kimmer is, if she based the diet on years of lies and her own faked before and after photos, that diet plan lost all credibility. I am now banned from Kimins for having a different view of that diet. I discovered she faked most of the Success stories. ANYONE having a different view of that diet or questions anything will have their posts removed and then eventually they too, will go *POOF*. So much for paying for a lifetime membership. You will find NO dissenters as you read the Kimkins posts, they simply are not allowed to exist. You will however find posts from the new administrators that will say “Who cares who this Kimmers WAS…this diet works!”

I left kimkins last week and came here. I’ve been off the coputer for two days and this thread has taken off. It took me forever to catch up. I too got the so called e-book and NO COMMENT. ARGH she makes me so made.
Well good news. I have been following my own plan (after putting together thing from here) and I go to the gym 4 days a week and in one week I lost 4 pounds. I never thought I could lose if I left kimkins and I am still lossing but I feel so much better about it. IT feels so much better to up my calories and to stop those laxatives. I was one of those who kimmer told to take a full dose the first day and then take 1/2 dose everyday after. I pm’d her and she said I should take 1 full dose a week and then 1/2 a dose a day after wards. As soon as I stopped it I gained 3 pounds, but I d feel so much better.
i’m so glao see some of the old faces from kimkins. It’s starting to feel more like home.
