Was Tippy Lying???

Singinglass seems to think she is…..

Singinglass responds to Tippy from AmyB’s blog

singinglass |Thank you for the concern expressed. For the record—the only contact Jeanie has made towards me since November when she left Kimkins was a single-lined e-mail saying ” Merry Christmas!”. I have not blocked her, she has my phone number…there has been no emails or calls from her to me. I told her at the time that I respected her choice and held nothing against her etc…however it is a little upsetting to see falsehoods made in regard to claims to try to reach or “save” me and so forth when none were made. I am not saying that she should have done anything like that–but rather that it seems odd she did not try to simply contact me personally, rather then making it into a big display publically… which has resulted in positive attention and redemption comments for her across blogs .

Now see Singinglass—I really don’t think my comments from yesterday’s post were redemptive at all. I still don’t trust her, you neither for that matter.

Neither of you rate too high in my book. At least she had the smarts to get the sam hill out of Kimkins. Although her reasons were entirely selfish. If she was getting any money she would have stayed around a little longer.

You apparently don’t have the sense to know you are going down too, right along with that imbecile you call boss. I tried to warn you yesterday. But from this comment alone it shows me you couldn’t give a rats ass about it all. Well get ready to regain your weight. Jail house food is cheap, it’s high carb……

Tippy Reaches Out to Singinglass

In a show of supportand concern, Tippy Toes AKA Jeannie Baitinger reaches out to Singinglass AKA Delaney Deaver. Here is her plea in it’s entirety.

Delany, I just want you to know I understand how easily it is to get sucked into Heidi’s web. It may not be too late to ask John for immunity in exchange for what he wants from you. Please don’t let Heidi tell you he is just trying to scare you as she told me over and over. This is very real and very serious. Heidi is a fruad. It took me some time from stepping away to see it in full for what it really is. And Delany, it is a scam. Sure, you lost weight, I lost weight. But what price did we really pay? The diet lacks basic nutrients–we know this. People are sick from it. AmyB herself has serious health issues, lack of vitaminD, thyroid is shot, and some personal issues I am sure she would rather I not share. I spoke with Christin this week-end, Del. What she told me really sent red flags flying for me. She cannot exceed 1500 calories per day, cannot go over 40 carbs, even with exercise without re-gaining weight. She has had a year to get her metabolism to bounce back and it appears it will not bounce back. That frightens me for all who lose it on Kimkins–especially you. Don’t believe it? Try taking a maintenance break for one week and see what happens.

I was one of the lucky ones. Yes I have a thyroid issue and I believe it was pre-exisiting, however I also think Kimkins may have made it worse. It sure didn’t help it. And one of the Ducks/bloggers has been kind enough to take the time to try to help me move up the carb ladder. It has been with her help and encouragement that I have not run back for another KK round. I am up by 7 lbs but thankfully seem to be stabolizing now. I will tackle those 7 lbs later as I am re-building my metabolism now. And I am lucky. It seems to be working. I am so thankful a Duck reached out to help me, even though I am sure it has not gained her any popularity. God only knows what continuing to do KK could have done to me. All those people who complain of being so cold all the time… It is THYROID, Del! And yes some diets cause hair thinning. But I recently saw a pic of a long term KKer and I admit I was stunned to see how little hair she has left. This is not a small price to pay as Heidi led us to believe. It is the result of a severe deficiancy. If you are losing lots of hair, just think what is happening inside your body. Scarey.

Del, you and I had discussed having no place to go if we left Kimkins. I know you have seen what has happened to me and I am sure it frightened you. I know you read LCF and I know you watched me get kicked to the curb by many, including being banned from Eating Low. But Del, some good came from it all. Campcarbaway turned out to be the best support I ever had. Lots of your friends are there too. And you will always be welcome there and no one there will give you a hard time. That is a promise. You do have a fantastic support group waiting for you. And even if you want to continue to do the Kimkins diets there you can without bashings. Plus we are learning of some alternatives to Kimkins which I have personally found works just as well. Written by Doctors, no less! )

You know I have emailed you several times, tried to call you and it is clear you do not want to hear from me. I am not two faced, Del. I have learned the truth about Heidi and her scamming ways as well as the real dangers of the Kimkins plan. Just email AmyB and ask her for yourself. You too will be horrified. I have not turned because I want to save my own reputation. lol Far too late for that now. But I sure don’t want to be responsible for promoting a diet that hurts people nor do I want to help a scam conn artist make profit from hurting others. The fact she cannot do her own diet tells it all. When we went to the MJ show and she dropped the ball right before telling us who she was, why didn’t we even consider she would have pics of herself thinner? We never gave that a thought because we were so wrapped up into defending it all. I think she knew that and timed it accordingly. She lied to us and that is why she is unable to produce a single pic of herself thin. It never happened and that is why. I believe she waited till we were so busy collecting what we needed for the show that we would not have time to question that OR ask for her skinny pics. She is a pro in the conn game, Del. You have to see it by now.

Anyways, think about calling or emailing John and try to make a deal if you still can. It’s going to get ugly. And again, you can always come to Campcaraway free of charge, just as any KK member can. You will NOT lack support. And I do miss you.

I have to tell you, I had originally been working on a piece about Tippy that did not show her in the best light. It was about her email exchange with Heidi in the letter from John Tiedt.

I’ll be the first to tell you. I do not trust Tippy as far as I could throw Heidi. After reading this plea to Sininglass, my opinion of her went up a wee bit. Not much mind you. I still think she is not to be trusted. But in giving her the benefit of the doubt, I chose not to publish the post I had intended in the beginning. I will reserve the right to consider it for the future. For now it’s still on hold in the draft bin.

I do want to say something to Singinglass.

This is your last out here, you need to listen and take it. If you refuse—then so be it—you deserve everything you’ll have coming to you. You and Heidi can share a cell. Cause that will be where you are headed. Mark my words here—-you will go down with her. If you refuse to take heed now—after all this time—you are no better than Heidi.

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…..

In Heidi’s Own Words

With all the sad news of continued support of low calorie starvation eating at Kimkins. We already know how nutritionally bankrupt the diet is. But is it a diet or an eating disorder? I thought you might like to revisit what Heidi feels about ED.

Low Calories/Pro Ana

We are low calorie after ketosis kicks in or with the shake option, but those calories are identical to post-WLS patients (500 cal a day for months), original Optifast and Medifast (450-700 cal a day for months).

I don’t know what WLS program Heidi used. But no reputable surgeon recommends 500cals/day. WLS programs are geared to be lower calorie at first, 1000 cals/day. That only lasts for a few months as your pouch heals. The big difference in these programs and Heidi’s is:

SHE”S NOT A DOCTOR.

SHE HAS NO LICENSE TO PRACTICE MEDICINE.

The same applies to the Medifast or other liquid diets. You are supervised very closely by a doctor. Not some woman sitting behind a computer screen on a big power trip.

I don’t think we can fight the “1200 calorie a day mentality”. Some people cannot understand that your body takes the calories it needs from body fat if the calories you eat are too low to sustain current weight. If you need 2500 calories (250 lb person) and eat 500 (number picked for easy math), the other 2000 are taken from body fat.

This is just stupid. Elle did a good job of debunking this myth.

In Jimmy’s interview I meant what I said about take a Weight Watcher or Jenny Craig meal and remove the starches. What’s left? Kimkins. There is no health advantage to adding carbs or extra fat, so why is removing them (and having less calories) dangerous? 1200 calories a day is an arbitrary number (like 8 glasses of water).

Once again, Heidi is just plain wrong. Fats are the key to good health. there are many benefits to eating fat. Here are some good articles:

Anorexia is a psychological disorder. Do we have people with ED on Kimkins? Of course. I weighed 318 pounds and you don’t get that big without an improper relationship with food so I have an ED. But low calories aren’t an ED, otherwise all of the WLS patients would be medically classified anorexic.

What if regular Kimkins changes guidelines from 0-20 carbs to 10-20 carbs and 0-3 cups to 2-3 cups List 1? Then again, I’m stuck with what to do when you’re not hungry. Forced eating sounds ED to me. I’ll find someone I trust to make a Recommended Supplements list.

Just a reminder of some info on what an eating disorder is:

While eating disorders may begin with preoccupations with food and weight, they are most often about much more than food.

Eating disorders are complex conditions that arise from a combination of long-standing behavioral, emotional, psychological, interpersonal, and social factors. Scientists and researchers are still learning about the underlying causes of these emotionally and physically damaging conditions. We do know, however, about some of the general issues that can contribute to the development of eating disorders.

People with eating disorders often use food and the control of food in an attempt to compensate for feelings and emotions that may otherwise seem over-whelming. For some, dieting, binging, and purging may begin as a way to cope with painful emotions and to feel in control of one’s life, but ultimately, these behaviors will damage a person’s physical and emotional health, self-esteem, and sense of competence and control.

ED are behaviors. It’s not about the food or the calories. It is all about your thinking. Heidi and her minions all preach that nothing tastes as good as thin feels. That in itself is an ED. Period.

If we make changes it will be announced with the Maintenance Plan (which will be a work in progress from member feedback). The announcement will be general and not in response to any outside pressure.

At least in this aspect Heidi has been true to her word. The maintenance plan is still ongoing with her asking members for advice. She couldn’t come up with a maintenance plan on her own, so she is having members do it for her. Color me shocked….

She couldn’t even come up with a diet of her own, so she stole Stillman’s.

Kimkins Trickle Down Theory of Weight Loss

This is from “Just Ducky” , Kimkins Exposed, August 24, 2007:

With Kimmer a tad busy, it seems members are jumping in to offer advice to each other. This might be a good thing if the starvation concepts advanced by Kimmer didn’t seep down deep into those following the diet.

A member recently asked for help on the Ask Kimmer thread:

…stayed on the diet for five days and not lost a pound so I gave up. Hard to stick to something that is not working for me….eveny just a 1/2 pound would have been nice. My fit day is public so if anyone wants to look at it, feel free. I hope someone can help and maybe I will feel excited about starting again. Thanks to anyone who will try…

After someone suggested a public fitday to review, the member complied, and sure enough, other members were at the ready to give advice.

Before we look at the advice, the member’s fitday clearly shows that

8/13
518 calories
13 grams carbohydrate

8/14

938 calories
16 grams carbohydrate

8/15
608 calories
18 grams carbohydrate

8/16
488 calories
19 grams carbohydrate

8/17
254 calories
6 grams carbohydrate

Guess what advice they received?

You use a lot of cream – this might satisfy your coffee with cream in the morning – it does mine!

Please review the veggies you’re eating with the Kimkins Grocery list. When I started I counted the carbs and stayed under 20 per day – I now stay under 10 per day.

Hope this helps!

The plan works – now you have to work the plan.

Then there was this gem:

I’m not Kimmer either but and no where near my goal but your veggies are too high. You can only have 2 cups of the list one and 1 cup of list two or 3 cups of list one. You show you’ve gone over on most days. Also, no regular creamer if that’s the kind you’re using. Drizz has good advice too. Also, there were a couple of days you didn’t list…..so not sure if you went over on those days or just didn’t write stuff down. Beef also stalls me terribly, which is a shame because I love beef and can only tolerate the rest of the choice.

If you go back to the food list and really follow it, I think you’ll find you’ll do just great. Please hang in there, you are so worth it!

Notice no one said anything about the erratic and very low calorie intake? With a five day calorie average hovering around 500 calories, the problem is too many vegetables and cream, even though this member is remaining within the 20 grams of carbohydrate supposedly allowed on the diet?

Yes, what we see here is the trickle down theory of Kimkins weight loss advice.

Sad isn’t it. Yet this is still the practice over at Kimkins. You know, I think I have a better title for this post.

KIMMER LOVES TO ROCK THE RED !!!

Imagine my surprise last night when I checked out the Kimkins website for the last time in 2007, only to discover that Heidi Diaz/Kimmer has a new picture up!Now, before you go to her site and raise her hit ranking on the web, which is not a good thing, above is her most recent weight-loss picture for your viewing pleasure.

This latest picture, where Heidi is wearing more makeup than a whore on a holiday (no disrespect to whores intended), I must say is a vast improvement over her badly photoshopped picture which appeared on her website on December 14, 2007:

What I find most amazing in viewing her latest picture is not only the amount of weight she alleges she has lost doing her own Kimkins starvation diet, but her penchant for the color red.

Let’s take a look at some of her other red outfits…

First of all, the lovely Lesya, the woman from the Russian bride website whose picture Heidi Diaz/Kimmer scoffed to represent her “after” picture on the Kimkins website. Not a good choice, Heidi.

Then, we have Heidi at her deposition in the civil action:

And now a closer look at Heidi’s new picture on her website:

You know, Heidi, every time I see another picture of you, I see RED.

How can you, in all good conscience, continue to lure unsuspecting people desperate to lose weight to your website in the hope that they will pay big bucks to you to learn how to literally starve themselves by following your deadly Kimkins diet? How?

Which brings to mind another RED
