Kimmer: Laxatives #5

From early July 2007, another newbie looking for answers:
Member:

Hey! Ive just joined and am confused on a couple of things, Ive looked around forums to no avail! Ill keep this brief as I’m sure your very busy!

1. Whats the rule on dairy and non meat protein foods? I’m not vegetarian but Id like some more variety as to food choices.

2. Will I become constipated during the entirety of the diet? There was a thread in the forum but it didn’t really answer that.

3. Can you have 1/2 a grapefruit a day when on K/E? I read somewhere you could but I cant find it again!

4. Do people get down to really small sizes? Like UK 6-8 (i think thats US 2-4) as I cant really tell from the success story pictures.

5. Do you lose muscle mass if you don’t exercise?

THANKS!

Kimmer:

1) You can choose from the vegetarian proteins, but you loss may slow a bit because they are a bit higher in carbs.
2) You may become constipated and I recommend a daiy 25-50% dose of laxative each day to help.
3) No grapefruit, in fact it will bring weight to a halt — not compatible with ketosis (where did you read that so I tell them?)
4) Some people look pretty small to me? Dina is a size 3, Christin is a size 4, 2 girls in bikinis look like size 2-6?
5) You will keep the muscle mass you need, many people don’t exercise. You naturally lose muscle as you lose weight because you don’t need as much muscle to carry 125 lbs as 250 lbs.

You can read more info in The First 2 Weeks above, too!

Hello again! quick question about the laxatives,
i thought that its bad to take them constantly because your bowel starts to rely on them…are there any safe types of laxative which don’t do this? And would that be throughout the entire programme, even maintenance?
Thanks again!

Kimmer:

Recent studies show that our bowels DO NOT rely on laxatives, but we’re talking about a reduced dose no matter way. Much more dangerous to have garbage lying in the bowel where it begins to be reabsorbed and ferments.

You can use fiber laxatives but they take a long time and cause temporary weight gain due to water absorption.
You can use bulking laxatives that act the same way.
You can use stimulant laxatives that force bowel action.

Recent studies? What recent studies?
Oh, Yeah, those Russian brides in the bikinis sure did look thin… They probably took handfuls of laxatives…

  1. She loved to use me as an example huh? From my letter to her at the end of August:

    “1) Your position regarding laxatives is: β€œOne full dose the first day, and then a reduced 25%-50% dose every day afterwards to maintain regularity.” All studies that I have found indicate that while continued dosing of a mild laxative is not necessarily addicting to some, it can be very detrimental to others causing the large intestine to become dependent on the herbs or laxative in order to contract and function properly. Can you please point me to the scientific evidence that this is a safe practice and recommendation? This would be apart from those who have been prescribed laxatives by their doctors for other reasons, but for the general public.”

    She continued to tout that there were “scientific studies” but would never come forward with exactly what those studies were…. I haven’t found them yet.
