I know I at that a less (I don't do veggies..) while on Kimkins but looking at it now just makes me sick. Puts a whole new light on it when you see pictures of it. Have to admit, the pictures she uses on her site look a lot more appitizing. Thanks for the post.

Hey! You are complaining about my cooking? Just kidding. Kimkins recipes on her blog look great as they are stolen from various places on the internet and don't show the "no fat" and small portions.

Mariasol -- you are a genius. I have never seen such a great way of demonstrating just how crazy this plan is. I blogged about your post, and included the pix -- hope that's okay, I made it clear they are yours and linked them back to your blog. Huzzah for you!

Elle - Of course you can use the pictures in anyway you want! They didn't come out as bad as I thought - the salad fills up the plate. But salad adds just some 40 cals and you can't get the nutrionion from the veggies die to the absence of fat.

I don't think green beans were allowed on the original veggies list. Are those allowed currently? I'd look myself but I've been BANNED from the food lists, and everything except visiting the front page.

mariasol said...

avenuegirl - I'm not sure as I am also banned from the food lists but it listed 1/2 cup list 2 veggie and I thought green beans were there.

Magicsmom said...

Mariasol, green beans are on list 2. ;-) but you're just a sissy if you put butter on them. Whip out the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray! Oh wait! It doesn't say you can have that, does it?

Stunningly graphic post. Bravo! Well done!

If just one person looks at those photos and decides that this really IS a starvation diet, then it's worth it, don't you think?

Again ... brilliant.

Now that's just unfair! You forgot to include the vitamin pill that magically solves all undernutrition.;-) It also fills up an anorexic-trained stomach. Really, you should be more careful. Oh, pardon me - was it hiding under a lettuce leaf? That makes everything OK then. Oh, and about that SNACK listed above as a whole day's food - too dry to choke down easily. Needs a good dollop of mayonnaise!

mariasol said...

Your are right, forgot to show the multi vitamin pill. And you better take it as the body can't absorb nutrition from veggies in the absence of fat. Probably not from a dry pill either.
I also didn't show the unlimited diet soda the plan not only allows but encourages.

Excellent visual! What a great way to show what you're actually eating when following Heidi's starvation diet. A picture is worth a thousand words (and apparently 600 calories or less).

2BIG said...

WOW Great blog post Marisol.

Food looked good till I read it was all the food for the whole day. Maybe that warning label needs to be a little more colorful ;)


Wifezilla said...

Great job demonstrating how nutritionally bankrupt Kimkins is. You rock!

mariasol said...

2big - Thanks. Done!
I agree that the first plate doesn't look all that bad, for ONE meal. And I think very few people have put everything they eat during one day on the same plate and might be surprised to see how much food it is. I should probably do a 2000 cal plate as comparison.

Mariasol, you are absolutely on fire with your blog lately! Another fantastic post - the photos are worth a thousand words each, you know!
