Your Astrological Sign
Taurus is symbolized by the bull and ruled by the planet Venus. Taureans are considered to be practical, patient, and good-natured; they also can be jealous. They appreciate beauty and are attuned to the physical world.
Taureans are warm, loving, gentle and charming most of the time. Motivated by self preservation, the Taurean is not a risk taker and weighs every decision carefully, in a slow and methodical manner. To more impulsive people, the Taurean is a bore. Opinionated and stubborn, once a Taurean makes a decision, it is written in stone. nobody can alter it.Basically physical people, they prefer the known to the unknown and the tried to the new. They love the earth, possessions, and generally treat those they love as sacred possessions.
Main positive traits: Stable, dependable, practical, conventional,determined and patient.
Taureans can be very caring and warmhearted but there is a tendency to be extremely jealous, possessive and very stubborn. Taurus must strive to keep an open mind because his strong personal convictions can blind him to the ideas of others. Risks are taken only if it is absolutely necessary and only after much consideration. This is a sign that’s slow to change and would prefer a steady routine in life.me
Main negative traits: Possessive, stubborn, materialistic, lazy.
Friends of Heidi can feel free to leave their birthday wishes here in the comments, and we’ll make sure she gets them.
Our friend mayberryfan just had an excellent post on her blog. If you are doing Kimkins, and missed the messages posted in there the other night, it is a must read:
Mayberryfan closes with the following poinient question:
As a “Duck” – someone who knows all about the fraud behind Kimkins and all the lies told by Heidi Diaz, I cannot give up on stopping Heidi until she is in prison where she belongs.
This fight isn’t about hate at all! I am not motivated by hate. I am motivated by a deep desire to help others.
If you are still at Kimkins, or doing another starvation diet like the Magic Chicken Diet, you must ask yourself some tough questions.
Are you willing to break away and do a sensible, effective diet like Atkins, Protein Power or The Glycemic Load diet?
Or, are you determined to simply leave behind a skinny corpse?
In June 2007, the first of the Womens World newbies starts to come in and ask questions. This is the advice they get:
I’m brand new at this. My concern is not getting enough fiber in my diet. I have been eating Kashi cereal every morning to keep me going. What do you recommend? Fibercon, Metamucil, daily? Thank you.
If you’re certain you want to take fiber supplements, you should pick whichever type you like. I recommend against fiber for fastest weight loss. They work by bulking which means they forum a mass in the colon (think of a bowling ball rolling down the alley) and absorb water.
This water weight gain is disheartening to some people and they get discouraged.
Kimkins works on the basis of counting all carbs. We don’t subtract fiber. So, to do Kimkins correctly, you should count the fiber in your supplements. Our limit is 20 grams total per day from all sources.
For regularity I do recommend taking a weak dose of laxatives every day We’re not talking laxative abuse here! Not like movie stars who take handfuls. Just 1 regular dose to dose and a 25-50% dose daily after that to keep things going..
Some people are shaky about taking laxatives, but think Smooth Move senna tea is OK. I find that mildly humorous since senna tea IS a laxative!
Welcome to Kimkins!
Does her quote above imply to anyone else that if according to Heidi, if movie stars take handfuls of laxatives, and they look like, well, movie stars, then…???
Another one, later that same month.
I have been on the diet just over 2 weeks and love it. My problem is I get very constipated. I have been eating chicken, turkey, fish, salads & veggies. I have been taking fiber pills. I need help in getting and staying regular. Thanks Pearl
The fiber pills will work against you. They work by bulking and making a “mass” in the colon. Also, if you use psyllium pills, count their carbs toward your 20 daily total. I believe they are 1 carb each?
I suggest that people take a full dose of a stimulant laxative the first 2 days (like Ex Lax?) and then a 50% dose 1 per day after that. The idea is to gently keep things going, not develop a laxative habit.
You think halving the dose but taking it every day is going to keep it from being habit forming? Sick.
What happens when half starts to fail to work, then 100% fails to work, etc? Handfuls?
Notice that her replies later in June are getting shorter, probably due to the number of questions from new folks during this time frame. Normally asking questions would be a good thing, but when these are the answers you are getting, it would have been better to just follow the plan as written, instead of the plan behind the plan. Not much better, but better for sure…
