Let us take a moment and pause. It's time to remember and remind why we are doing this.
If you haven't yet read the Kimkins Survivors blog, please do so! THAT is the reason we are here. That is the reason for this blog and other similar blogs.
Real people are being hurt.
Real children are seeing their mothers suffer.
Real women are going to the emergency room with heart palpitations and other acute health issues.
Real people are losing weight on a starvation diet and are unaware of the long term risks to their health.
People are losing their hair.
People are destroying their metabolism.
People are being misled into thinking that Kimkins is safe.
A recent blog comment made a very important point. SURE you will lose weight eating 500 calories a day (or 710, or 800). SURE some people haven't had any health problems. Does that mean it's safe? Some people have smoked cigarettes for decades and have no visible health issues. Does that mean smoking is safe? Of course not.
People shouldn't have to judge the odds on their health, as if spinning a roulette wheel hoping that they will be lucky and avoid damage.
You CAN lose weight safely. Kimkins is NOT the answer. Please step away from the roulette wheel. Gamble with lottery tickets, not your life.
