Calories on Kimkins

Kimmer now says:

"There is no calorie limit on any Kimkins option whether you choose original Kimkins, K/E (Kimmer Experiment), Boot Camp, Cycling or quick Protein Shakes. Some members prefer specific portions and find Kimkins Boot Camp fits their needs perfectly."

To me, "calorie limit" goes both ways. Maximum calories. Minimum calories.

And it is obvious that there is no minimum calorie limit on Kimkins. "Lower is better" has always been Kimmer's mantra.

Some quotes from Kimmer herself, copied from Becky's blog:

"I don't believe in starvation mode. I cannot and will not say anything about minimum calories. A grilled chicken breast and a 1 cup USDA serving of mixed greens is 200 calories. It just is. Adding fats or starches isn't "healthier" to up the calories."

"I'm begging you, please don't eat if you're not hungry! We've all got to work on the 'I should' tapes in our head."

"Don't panic about low calories. . . . Bottom line, as long as you have sufficient body fat you don't need to eat calories -- you're carrying them with you."

"I disagree about not taking in enough calories. Water fasters take in 0 calories and their hearts are fine. So long as you have sufficient body fat, there's no problem. You're thin, but not overly so. By all means I'd snack on lean protein and be sure you're getting in the RDA of 60 grams, but it takes very little chicken/beef/eggs to do that."

"Someone can "eat clean" and still be too high in calories, even if they're low by other diet standards. Certainly no one would think 900 calories a day is "high", but it's 3 times as much as someone doing the Egg White Challenge at 300 calories a day. Weight loss will be different."

"Want more proof low calories are OK? What about people who have gastric bypass surgery and the very goal of surgery is for them to limit their daily calories to 500! They lose just fine. Any complications are a result of the surgery or pre-existing health conditions brought on by obesity."

Anybody thinks that the Plan Behind The Plan will not continue at Kimkins?

HELP us remove this pro-ana diet site from the internet!

It's also obvious that Kimmer, aka Heidi Diaz, never followed her own advice.

Good Morning America was really generous offering 500 calories, when here Kimmer is saying zero is just fine if you have fat on your body. Imagine everyone getting down to that zero. Anyone who thinks she's preaching a new sermon these days is just not really listening.

I can't wait until Kimmer goes on the prison diet. Bread, water and gruel is so yummy, Kimmer.

Thank you for reposting those quotes.

I think a few people think we're just 'angry housewives', so posting the evidence is helpful.

Anonymous - You are right. It's called "being supportive."
But you might be surprised to know how many people that find our blogs from google. They don't typically leave a comment but it's obvious that the information gets out there. Would you want a search on Kimkins to lead to just Heidi's site?

Yes, I did notice, just like I notice you posting the same comments on every one of our blogs.

Nice to see you again :^) I feel we're really getting to know one another.
