Hey Jimmy, what did you expect? This ain't Weight Watchers, at Kimkins we're totally into serious weight loss.

Did I mention that I actually find food boredom on K/E a blessing. It really forces you to look outside the box and realize you need some new friends beside McDonalds, KFC and Ben & Jerry!

I'm really proud of you taking the Kimkins plunge and CAN'T WAIT to see your "after" pic (although I think the "before" looks pretty good, too!)

I sure like my "all you can eat diet". The thing about it is that I can live like this forever and I'm never hungry, I'm always satisfied. These starvation diets only work short term for fast weight loss and do not cure the problem, we all know that. When they start talking two ounce servings and "petite" servings I just tune out and walk away. I used to eat a pound of meat and six or eight eggs a day to start the day and then a large meal later in the day and lost fifty pounds doing this and drinking only water. Now I find myself cutting back to three or four eggs and about a half a pound of meat. I just can't eat any more. I am full. That's all I ate yesterday. I feel better every day. I don't even have to think about food. I just thaw some meat and cook it with eggs, usually steak and eggs or bacon and eggs or sausage and eggs and then a oven baked meal of meat and vegetables and wild rice or sometimes boiled. I'm always full and contented and enjoying life more and more every day. Nature will regulate us if we let it. Atkins said if your hungry eat. I live by that. It's what you eat not how much you eat. I eat lots a few times and eat no snacks. I prefer that over the several small meals and snacks approach. I know a good meal is coming and I can eat all I want and it will taste great and be really satisfiing that gives me peace. My water at room temperature or outside temperature is great too, I have a gallon of spring water with me every where I go and next to my chair. I glug glug several times a day but rarely drink a gallon, usually about three quarters of a gallon. I love the fact that I no longer have hypoglycemia or compulsive eating disorder, I also appreciate the fact that I never have to exercise either. I am an active person through, I get around a lot, otherwise I would have to "force feed" exercise. I appreciate your support a lot Jimmy, you have been a real inspiration to me. Keep up the good work. Tom

Wow! That's amazing Jimmy - good for you! Keep it up!

Question - when you gained some of your weight back, were you no longer in ketosis?

If someone is in ketosis...but not losing that an indication that the person is eating too may calories? Or can you be in ketosis but STILL be eating too many carbs to lose?

THANKS Kimmer! But being friends with McDonalds, KFC, and Ben & Jerry is clearly NOT my problem...anymore! After my 180-pound Atkins weight loss, I kicked those habits for good!

But it's getting better. The weight loss is phenomenal and I appreciate what you are doing to help other people change their lives for the better. We're gonna make that "after" picture look AWESOME!!! :)

Great question, Paul! When I was in Atkins maintenance, I stayed on the borderline of ketosis eating about 50g carbs daily. This was working well for me for three years to keep my 180-pound weight loss in check.

But old habits of eating a little more than I should or when I wasn't hungry started creeping in and added more carbs and calories to my diet which explains the weight creep.

To your question about eating too many calories while in ketosis which would prevent weight loss, I think it depends on the person.

When I was losing weight on Atkins in 2004, I never counted my calories and the weight was pouring off of me--even when I consumed as much as 3500 calories in a day (mostly fat). Of course, at 410 pounds I had a lot to lose.

But as I've gotten down closer to "normal" weight, I can't eat the same way. While I naturally have cut back on my food consumption because I'm not that behemoth 400-pounder anymore, I still find myself sometimes eating big again.

It's a constant struggle that we all must deal with. Watching carbs is first and foremost and then from there it's about customizing your eating plan to YOUR lifestyle to produce the results you are looking for.

Kimkins is working that way for me right now! THANKS again for your salient remarks! Comment anytime.

Sounds more or less like the Stillman Water diet. You eat nothing but lean protein and water.

But if it works and doesn't drive you insane, more power to you, Jimmy.

Thanks for sharing your struggle Jimmy.

It's teaching us all something!

Good luck on Kimkins, I found it hard to do the couple of times I tried.

I think horses for courses.
