She first came to my attention while listening to a Jimmy Moore podcast linked below. Basically it was a one hour plus rant against Gary Taubes. During the podcast Evie stated how she had lost a shed load of weight, and for the first time in years, had got out of the morbidly obese club, great eh, err no. She suddenly started feeling ill, got checked out and decided her low carb diet was doing her no good, this by the way, coincided with what she called ‘cheats’ in the form of hitting the Lindt chocolate box with a vengeance, the result, rapidly back to morbid obesity, as she is to the present day.
Now, here’s the thing that amazes me, instead of trying something new and getting back to a healthy weight and improving her health, she decided almost everyone in the Low carb and Paleo world was a fraud and a snake oil salesman. She decided to dedicate her life to exposing these charlatans. Without further ado, she set about her mission, for the first time in her life she was gonna be a somebody. She had no interest in helping anyone, how could she ? she couldn't even help herself. The blurred and obviously many years old photographs removed from her blog, that made sense, how can you ridicule people for their appearance and weight problems, when you are the very thick end of 150lbs over weight yourself.
So, back to my mention on the bloated blogger blog, part of her post.
“Eddie doesn't like me too much because I expose the underbelly of his beloved community. I also blog on the science here as regards what type 2 diabetes really is. In his world view, there is only one way to go with that -- VLC and metformin. It's a myopic view shared by many in the low carb community and they must prevent people from being exposed to folks like me who might show you otherwise through credible scientific references.”
I do believe for the majority of type two diabetics, a lifestyle change is the best way to go, for the reduction of weight and safe blood glucose control. Check on any diabetes forum, and you will see almost all the success comes via a low carb diet. It’s simple, it works and keeps on working. The one downside is the fact it requires some self disciple in the early days. After a short while it becomes second nature. This is the problem which Evie cannot get beyond and probably never will, she has no self discipline regarding food. You must be able to see the irony here, the font of all knowledge dedicates her life to the ‘science’, rubbishes so many successful people, yet has to hide herself away too ashamed to publish a recent photograph of herself. I cannot think of one serious blogger other than Evie, who has not published photographs of themselves.
So delusional has she become, her hot off the press Magnum Opus book called ‘Restriction Addiction’ tells us that people with a weight problem and restrict part of their diet to reduce weight, have a mental problem, buy looser clothes a few sizes bigger and learn to love yourself, problem solved. The fact is the Carbsaner blog started by Carol (and ended by Carol due to legal threats I suspect) completely destroyed the shred of credibility Evelyn Kocur may ever have had. One thing is for sure. You can never, ever be a player, or be taken seriously, while you hide in a sewer like a gutless rat, just ask Charles Grashow. At this moment I am thinking of another famous line “It's sad, so sad, it's a sad, sad situation and it's getting more and more absurd” Elton John
