Still time to Join the Lawsuit

There is still plenty of time to add your name to the lawsuit. Here is a helpful video to explain how to join.

When reading news accounts about the Class Action Lawsuit many people get confused. They see the reports that say 8-11 number of people are involved in the case. Just to clarify for everyone. When a class action suit is filed, only a small portion are listed on the actual court documents. To the layperson reading them it looks as if just a few are involved.

You just have to realize they are just representatives of the whole class. They couldn’t very well refile each time someone else joins the suit.

If you have put off joining the suit because of this misconception, take the time to get you papers done to add your name to the MANY actually on file.

Here’s the latest from the captain of the Kimtanic:

Re:”I’m a Kimkins Newbie” Challenge 2008! 2 Hours, 15 Minutes ago

Kimmer:
“I don’t believe in starvation mode (you can read more in my blog). The whole point of gastric surgery or Lapband is to drastically cut calories. There was a woman on the Joy Luck Club (Today Show) recently who lost 125+ lbs after gastric surgery. Her surgeon was on the show with her. She is now a size 2 and described what she eats: 2-3 oz of protein first, then a small amount of veggies. If she’s full after a few ounces of protein, she passes on the veggies. Her example of how many asparagus she could eat was 2-4, plus a multivitamin.

“Last night I heard part of the show “I Can Make You Thin” on TLC. He also mentioned that metabolism is not rigid, it’s flexible and rises and falls according to activity level and personal “build in” metabolism. This is what I’ve said for years. When you reduce calories your metabolism drops, but not drastically. When you reach goal and begin eating more, your metabolism will raise, but people need to eat less at goal. This is a shocker for some people. They didn’t “break” their metabolism — their body may be 50, 100, 200 pounds lighter. A 125 lb body needs much less “energy” (calories) than a 325 lb body.”

“Dr. Johnny Bowden is respected in the diet industry. He wrote in an article suggesting women can lose and maintain on 1250-1400 calories a day — men 1800.”

“Don’t force low calories, just eat clean … eat according to appetite. Be sure to take a good quality multivitamin (I like Centrum). Dr. Oz on Oprah suggested splitting the multivitamin in half because our bodies don’t process a mass dose of vitamins all at once.”
“The “tons of energy” is ketosis. Ain’t it great!”

Heidi, Heidi, Heidi…..

As par for the course she is spreading her brand of nutritional knowledge. Not that any of it is true. I don’t want to get into all the untruths in the above statements. I would just like to address the points on WLS.

Are you ready for a little WLS 101???

She points out the lady only eats 2 onces of protein and if she is still hungry she will eat the veggies. There is a good reason for only eating such a small portion.

YOUR FRIGGIN’ STOMACH IS NOW ONLY THE SIZE OF AN EGG!!!

FIGURE A—VERTICAL BANDED GASTROPLASTY
FIGURE B—LAP BAND
FIGURE C—ROUX-N-Y (RNY)
The graphic above gives you an idea of several types of WLS. In all of them the “pouch” is restricted to hold only a very few ounces at a time. This makes it where you are forced to limit your portion sizes. One bite too much and you have the wonderful effect of puking everything back up.

As for the lady who lost 120+ pounds, I would like to know how far out she is. In WLS speak that means how long it’s been since her surgery. Most people do grand for the first few years. The farther out they are the more weight they have gained and more complications they have had.

But this post is not about debating the pros and cons of WLS. Wander over to my personal blog to get my views on that. This is about Heidi continuing to use the WLS life as an argument for how great her plan is.

I’ve addressed this many times over the course of these past months. When comparing Kimkins vs WLS, that’s like comparing apples and oranges.

Yes, one of the points of WLS is restriction of calories. By using restrictive procedures such as the lap band and restrictive/malabsorptive procedures such as the RNY.

BUT……this is where Heidi fails….

When someone has WLS…….

YOU ARE FOLLOWED BY A WHOLE TEAM OF MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS

You know, those people with a whole string of letters behind their name….like MD, PhD, RN, CRRN, RD, etc….someone who is actually QUALIFIED to be giving advice.

In my case alone these are the MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS I saw on a routine basis for 2 solid years and am still followed regularly by most of them.

  • PRIMARY CARE DOC
  • BARIATRIC SURGEON
  • ENT DOC
  • REGISTERED DIETITIAN
  • BARIATRIC SPECIALIST DIETITIAN
  • PSYCH DOC
  • PSYCH THERAPIST
  • GI DOC
  • BARIATRIC SUPPORT SPECIALIST

What does Kimkins offer…..a “bored housewife” with a computer and too much time on her hands.

Just to add this…..remember Heidi is reported to have had “stomach stapling” years ago……

So how’s that working for ya, Heidi……

A SHORT SEGMENT FROM YOUTUBE

I love a good mystery….

It all started with a drive by trolling at LCF, with many of the posts deleted too. Then it went to a very odd cryptic blog, that eventually went poof, not before screen shots were done. there have been so many twists and turns here…you have to read it all for yourself….

you have got to read all the comments to follow along with this saga…..

Oh, but it’s the member’s fault….

One of the biggest arguments Kimkins supporters have to date is blaming the members for their own health problems. consistently saying they were cutting the calories on their own. They should have known better.

Here are the exact words SingingLass had to say on the Good Morning America show:

DELANEY DEAVER (aka SingingLass): We don’t tell people to starve, we encourage them to eat and I think there’s gonna be eating disorders that happen, you know, in any situation when somebody has an issue with food, but we try to prevent that from happening by giving people support.

and then we have a (:cough: sock puppet :cough:) member stating here:

People who have failed and have taken the diet to the extreme (eating less than 1000 calories a day…duh? commom sense?) are the main anti-kimkims supporters.

and the same “member” quoted here:

It is not the diet that made some people sick…it was their own fault for taking the diet to the extreme. I am sad that they say they got sick because of Kimkins. If they did not check with their doctor either before starting the diet or shortly after losing some weight, and discussing with their doctor, it is their own fault for getting sick.

These are just the most recent examples of blaming the members for cutting their own calories. Yet look what was posted on the FWK thread just last night by HoneyBee:

Kimkins- member asks for a review of their menu

…..I usually eat the following, but the weightloss is between 0-1lbs off per week!
B- (IF i have breakfast) Bacon or whey shake
L- leftover meat from the evening before (pork, beef, chicken) with a stick of celery, and 1 tbs mayo OR whey shake
D- Meat with salad or green veg.
Water, 1 coffee, multivitamin, detox tea (3 times per week)
IF i have a snack, it is a boiled egg or slice of meat or SF Jello or 10 almonds (no more than once per week)

‘Plumbing’ is all good- I am doing gentle exercise (I’m no gym bunny!)-I’m not deluding myself and ‘forgetting’ some things that go in my mouth, i keep a diary of everything that passing my lips.
Thanks for listening

Heidi responds

Hey girl!

First of all, look at your “before” and “current” pics and you’re a totally different person! You’ve done an awesome job!!! Everything looks good in your sample menu, but if you want to tweak a bit here’s what I’d suggest:

1) Skip pork & beef for now, stick with skinless chicken, turkey, fish, tuna
2) Be sure to use low cal low carb salad dressing
3) If your detox tea contains senna (Smooth Move) that’s a laxative so consult your doctor
4) 1 large egg, 1 string cheese, 10 almonds are 80-100 calories each and can add up
5) What about adding 1-2 servings of List 1 veggies in place of 80-100 snacks?

You’ve lost 56 pounds! The closer you get to goal, the slower loss goes because your smaller body naturally needs and burns fewer calories to maintain that smaller weight.

Don’t give up! You’re soooooo close, you’ll make it. Stay tough & focused

SingingLass responds

The things thats stuck out to me were the bacon, beef, almonds, and possibly the whey shakes.

Bacon and beef can be higher in fat….typically just like lean steak now and then. Almonds really are not on the plan while in losing phase, and people report all the time about getting stalled up when the grab for nuts. Perfectly great for maintaining though. I would say maybe cut out the whey shakes for a little while just to see if you notice a difference, it is one of those things that some people are fine with but others can stall a bit, also depending on the shake.

What are you putting in your coffee?

BTW—you look great! You also have such cute clothes, where do you shop?

Even an imbecile can see this member is not taking in that many calories to begin with. Yet Heidi and SingingLass are quick to tell her to cut out even more.

But, oh, it’s the member’s fault for cutting calories to the bare minimum….

Why Is Kimmer Off the Front Page?

In the latest episode of “As the Kimmer Turns“, Heidi has removed herself from the front page. No more watch us lose for her. Since she’s not losing anyway…..

anyway….the members wanted to know why….she didn’t get snarky about it this time….here is her response….straight from them Kimpound.

Why Is Kimmer Off the Front Page? 2 Hours, 50 Minutes ago
We wanted to give others an opportunity to share their progress and they’re spectacular! My biggest “thanks” to everyone who is, or has, volunteered their progress with the world.

Instead, I’ve added my start and progress pics in my siggy (XXXXXX, I did it, LOL!) The last photo is when I weighed about 180 and I’ll be happy to get back there. Yes, it was long ago so no Disco Hair comments!

This is her pic in her sig line now….

I mean, come on, seriously folks…..do we actually believe this may be a real pic of Heidi???

since we all know….

Kimmer is a Big-Boned, Diabolical, Quasi-Diabetic, Lint Licking, Lying, Liar that Lies.

I seriously doubt the authenticity of any pic she shows.

Here’s the pic I’m looking forward to…..

The Latest on the Idiotic Pinky Swear Challenge

The official results from week 2 of the idiotic Pinky Swear Challenge……drum roll pleeezzzz……191.4 pounds!!!

Bringing the total loss for just 2 weeks (halfway through the challenge) to:

434.7 pounds!!!

WOWZA!!! That’s impressive huh…..

Or is it????

:calculator in hand:

They have 130 people signed up for this idiotic challenge.

We know Heidi is not losing…so dividing this weeks loss by 129 gives us an average of 1.5 lbs/person. For the 2 weeks, they are averaging 3.4lbs/person.

Super fast weight loss there y’all…..

Heidi said she is “surprised” at the weight loss. But she “knows” Kimkins works. Yeah, starvation DOES have a tendency to make you lose weight….

BUT…….

Cleochatra is losing faster than that and she EATS!!!
