Hello… Survivors?

January 16, 2008

You have suffered due to a VLCD.

You have blacked out, lost your way, lost your health.

Now is the time to help others to be free. You have that power. It is in your hands.

If you have documented proof of medical care due to Kimkins-related diet side effects, and can spend just a small amount of time talking with an interviewer,

wouldn’t it be worth the being shy… or having left that period of time behind you?

Now is not the time to step back. Now is the time to put your foot forward, if only for a few minutes.

You could be saving your daughter, your mother, your friend from being a victim of a very low calorie diet.

Please.

For them.

If you have suffered any of the following doctor verified medical conditions:

• Dizziness
• Nausea
• Muscle fatigue or weakness
• Heartbeat palpitations
• Moderate to severe hair loss
• Bone and joint pain
• Mental changes – irritability, forgetfulness, confusion
• Bowel complications/symptoms of laxative abuse

as a result of your experience with the Kimkins Diet, and would like this exciting opportunity to share your experiences with the public, please contact KimkinsonABC@gmail.com within the next 48 hours.

No travel will be required, an ABC crew will come to you to discuss your experience.

If you know of anyone who fits the above-mentioned medical criteria, please share this contact information with them for this important opportunity.

Now is the time, sisters.

Now is the time.

I feel like I am being just barely saved by the bell. A member of Kimkins, I am towards the beginning of my third challenge. I am losing hair in clumps, awful joint pains and dizzy/nauseous frequently. But I am addicted to seeing that scale go down.

I discovered the fraud this evening and am immediately stopping this dangerous craziness. I hope that *itch goes to jail.

Thank you, so many

The power of us

September 11, 2007

Maybe you’ve been lied to.

                                              Maybe you’ve been hurt.

Now you’re wondering what is next? Why me? I wanted to believe.  She seemed thin. She said the plan worked for her.

You wanted to believe in the good of others,

in their beauty, in their hope, in their energy.

Even when doubt crept in, you swept it away like a buzzing gnat; and that’s ok.

You’re human. You’re wonderful. You’re beautiful.

You believed in others; now believe in the power of us.

This is a time for beauty through banding together. This is a time to heal and to help others heal. This is the time to forget past fighting and to remember that,

no matter what,

                                              we are all sisters

no matter what.

Sign the petition. Contact news agencies. File for your membership fees. Continue to share your testimonies through this site.

You heal by helping others to heal. You succeed by helping others to succeed.

We are all sisters.

No matter what.

Lonely is sometimes doing the right thing, even when it’s not popular.

 Even when it’s shirked,

laughed at,

sneered at,

tucked in.

 Lonely is sometimes knowing the people you thought you knew never knew you,

didn’t ask, didn’t care.

It’s hard waking up one morning and questioning what’s happening around you, that those figments you thought you knew were wasting away into the ethos, withering on less food than concentration camp survivors, showing brittle smiles and clapping you on bony shoulderblades.

It’s hard asking, “when did things change?” and seeing that, while the technicolor turned to grey and morbid rust, nobody else seemed to notice she was eating too little.

You spoke.

You were silenced.

But you spoke.

Thank you.

I joined Kimkins in Dec 06. I never followed any of the diets exactly, in fact, I NEVER gave up cheese, although I did switch to lower fat versions. I never looked at anyone’s Fitday. I never heard of laxative abuse. And I didn’t hear of any controversy regarding the diet.What really made me suspect that something was not right was what I read in one of the Kimkins Forums. I think it was the Detox/Fasting forum. It was a horrifying thread about someone’s experience with doing their own liver/gallbladder flush — and it was one the site’s administrators. Maybe this is normal to some people, but I was horrified. Then I read about people fasting; 3 days, 5 days, 7 days…

In all the other forums I visited on the site, there was encouragement and sharing of success. But when I found that Detox/Fasting thread, I felt very scared and disappointed. This isn’t going to be the best analogy, but it was like finding out that the good guy in the movie is really the bad guy.

Anyway, then I found this site and it confirmed my suspicions. What really sealed the deal for me was seeing some of the faces and names here that I’d previously seen offering encouragment on Kimkins forums and featured as success stories.

I haven’t decided exactly which low-carb diet I’ll follow for maintenance, but for now I’m enjoying adding high fiber bread and a few Triscuits with cheese back into my diet. Not everyday of course! I’m putting cream in my ice coffee and not stressing over my daily calories.

I’ve only got 12 lbs til I hit my goal weight — if I was still following KK, then I would be restricting hard core, exercising every night, weighing every morning and praying that I saw that magic number –123.

But, you know what? I feel really very calm about it. I hope it takes me six months to lose those last few pounds.

Thanks for everything — even if at first it felt like tough love, you have all really opened my eyes.
