Today, on Low-Carb Friends, DreamweaverPA, who followed the Kimkins diet, wrote this poignant post about the disastrous effects the diet had on her health and life:
"Hi everyone, I have been lurking these boards for a few years, and I did KK a few years ago. I did lose a lot of weight, but I also lost hair, (which most of it grew back now), lost a gallbladder, my thyroid is shot, and I am back up 65 pounds. I thought it was all from stress at the time, there was a lot of stuff going on in my life. I felt like I was worthless and went into a deep depression because I was so weak I couldn't stay on the diet longer than what I did. After following this thread from the beginning, I realize I would probably be dead by now, if I didn't stop when I did. I would hate for anyone else to go through what I went through because of a diet. I am a well educated 41 year old woman, who never thought I would be writing something like this, I felt so stupid until I read this thread, but this woman was so believable to me back then, and I was losing weight. I am going to stop rambling now. I just wanted to say thank you to everyone that is bringing this all out in the open. I am sure there are many more people out there that are just like me, that are too ashamed that they fell for all of it, (It took me 3 different threads to even post). Thank you all once again, and let's not stop until she is stopped."
Another victim of Kimkins and Kimmer/Heidi Diaz.
Please keep spreading the word on the deadly effects of Kimkins.
