Yesterday I was feeling so positive about putting the entire Kimkins experience behind me...but it just keeps rearing its ugly head. Yesterday I learned that both Deni and Christin might have some very serious health issues going on, related to their time doing the Kimkins diet. The whole idea that these two vibrant young women are now having to deal with possible health issues caused from their efforts to lose weight and become healthier just makes me sick at heart.
It is just so completely wrong that this is going on and continues to go on....the website is still up and running. People continue to do this diet and damage their health. It's more than "just" having some hair loss, issues with menstrual cycles, and messed up metabolism....Time after time I've seen posts on message board forums from women who say they are willing to risk these possible side effects in order to acheive the dream of being slim. Unfortunately, there is alot more at stake here than our hair! When we starve our bodies our bodies respond by feeding off of our muscle tissue....including our HEARTS!!!!
If you are doing the Kimkins diet...PLEASE STOP NOW!!! The long term damage you might be doing to your body is just too high of a price to pay. Whatever you think of Heidi Diaz/Kimmer....whatever your thoughts on all of the controversy....however successful you think you are on the plan....please stop and think......the price is too high...the diet is too dangerous. There are healthy ways to lose the weight...and Kimkins is not one of them.
