Another LCF member, FaithM, wrote a very poignant post this morning about her day-to-day struggles and suffering as a result of the Kimkins Diet:
"...I just finished watching Christin's video blog. It was extremely upsetting and yeah, I am in tears, crying for her. And for all of us. Even after all these pages I am upset to my stomach. I'm shaking and my heart's beating heavy and I question myself whether I want to even bring myself into this any further because I don't want to make it sound like I am making it all about me, because I'm not trying to do that. I do want to talk about it with you guys though because we all know what each other has been/is going through. Well ok, maybe only sometimes I want to talk about it. Sometimes I want to just sit back and continue watching this whole mess unfold, denying I got caught up in it too. But the truth is I suffer through every single day worrying about how I am going to right things in my mind and body! I just don't want to gain all of my weight back.
Kimkins, K/E, and all her "variations" of this diet screw up a person's mentality like nobody's business and right now my head is pretty messed up. I know there are some moves I've been needing to make on my part that I haven't done yet and that is my fault. It sounds wrong but I keep telling myself I have to worry about getting the rest of the weight off before anything else and that's all that matters.
I just went through the last 2 days on a sugar/carb binge and this morning mapping out how I was going to get by on as little as I possibly can to try and make up for it. Then I watched Christin's video and now I don't know what the hell I'm going to do because it hit me so hard, the realities of it all.
The destructive cycle just has to end. Not just with me but with everybody who has fallen into this crap trap. The more I read about it and the longer it goes on and the longer innocent people stay in the dark and the not so innocent people keep on supporting it...the more angry and pissed off I get! This is so freakin' NOT LEGAL!!"
Please, if you are contemplating starting the Kimkins Diet, DON'T! It will ruin your mind, body, health and life.
