Kimmer: Cut Calories and Take Laxatives

Have you guys seen this conversation that was allegedly in private messages from Kimmer?

If true which IMO I am 100% sure it is, this is a good example of the kind of crap that came out of Kimmers mouth in private messages on her forum. Here she is trying to help a lady lose weight faster, a lady averaging somewhere close to a mere 600 calories a day. She tried to go even lower but gets dizzy at 450 cals. Kimmer seems to think the only reason for her dizziness is her 8 or so carbs a day in that shes having too many carbs! :eek:

Basically, shes telling this lady to lower her calories even more, take laxatives and even lower carbs more because they are causing her blood sugar issues and perhaps she has diabetes!

An example of her advice to this lady:

I can only give you my opinion. I don’t think your calories are as low as you think — but that’s only my opinion.

However, let’s say they are. Let’s analyze why would feel faint? There’s no reason. Except for the Mona Vie (2 oz = 8 carbs), you’re not taking in any carbs, right? Carbs are the ONLY thing that affect blood sugar (dizzyness).

If you feel dizzy and eat chicken and feel better, it’s not from the chicken. It has no carbs.

If you need 1500 calories a day, we’ll say to maintain your current weight and only eat 500 (to make my math easier), then your body takes the other 1000 calories from body fat. Again, nothing to be dizzy about.

Somehow I think those super low calories may have something to do with the dizziness!!!

But as an aside to this suggestion in her having diabetes, I wonder if she has seen this study that I have listed up top of my Very Low Calorie Diet Research page:

Starvation diet and very-low-calorie diets may induce insulin resistance and overt diabetes mellitus

We have observed seven initially obese individuals who, during the course of a strenuous weight-reduction program, developed diabetes mellitus: non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus in five cases and insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus in two cases. None had any sign of prior diabetic symptoms. Although weight reduction is encouraged in obesity, crash diets without proper medical surveillance may have deleterious effects. This sequence of induction of diabetes has not previously been reported in the medical literature. The metabolic situation in extremely low-calorie diets may be comparable to that in starvation. An attempt is made to explain our observation concerning the induction of a diabetic state during such diets, on the basis of increased insulin resistance in states of starvation and anorexia nervosa, with a concomitant role in stress hormones.

Koffler M, Kisch ES, Starvation diet and very-low-calorie diets may induce insulin resistance and overt diabetes mellitus. J Diabetes Complications. 1996 Mar-Apr;10(2):109-12.

Its just a small one, but certainly makes you go hmmmm

Anyway go check out these private messages, and keep an eye out for more on Truth's blog: Kimmer: Cut Calories and Take Laxatives

To this lady that had this conversation with Kimmer, please get in touch and let us know that you're okay!

I'm a type 2 diabetic, and I have experienced some really unpleasant episodes of low blood sugar when I have cut my carbs too low for too long. A low-carb diet is okay, but too low can be bad and perhaps even life-threatening, at least for me. Scary stuff!

Thanks Sherrie. It is real, we assure you. There is more today, and will continue to be more posted.

Hey Jim, Kimmer was actually telling this lady that 8 or 10 carbs (what ever it was) was too much and that was why she was feeling dizzy or at least that is how it came across to me.

I highly recommend Dr Bernsteins book which you can view some of here: Diabetes in Control

I believe he is a type 1 diabetic
