BLUE GENIUS: It’s a World Obstruction: Being Ignored, Hated and Misunderstood
Karen Kellock calls for repentance from obstruction and her books show how people, habits and food block our unique and peculiar destiny. Karen Kellock received her B.A. in Art, a B.A. and M.A. in Political Psychology from Cal. State San Diego, and a Ph.D. in Psychology from the University of California, Irvine in 1976. She was then a Post-Doc Fellow at UCI College of Medicine (Dept. of Psychiatry) and wrote her first manuscript under NIMH and NIAAA grants (The Contagion of Madness: The Psychology of Neurotic Interaction) on the Wife of the Alcoholic Syndrome/.
Dear Karen: Good to see you realize that fruitarianism is insufficient and that only by alternating fruit with fauna-fat can the deficiencies be offset. Thomas E. Billings: www.beyondveg.com
The book Champion Guides is forever a classic. Who else speaks to the misfits of this world but Karen Kellock, a superb writer and amazing artist. This exquisitely genius classic (and landmark) is an important work.. While the college campuses are filling with leftists who angrily shame the students into the new tolerance, Dr. Kellock writes in such a unique and subtle though forceful way (and delightful witty style, ESP with these archetypal drawings ) that the correct conclusions are instantly triggered in the reader. Forget therapy sessions with the pro wanting to implant his view--the patient should seek his own destiny so true. There are no words to describe what I got from this book. After 60 years on this wretched earth this ONE book was all it took. Harry Esquoine Jr., Alcohol Counselor, Palm Beach
To Marikelok Press about Karen Kellock: These books will go down in history as landmarks in art and science so please keep them coming while this saint genius is still living! The "TextVerse with Symbols" is absolutely revolutionary. It puts me in eternity to read these strange right brain treatises. Suddenly , I hate reading other books--traditional styles--which are boring and tiring to read. This stodgy stuff I have to read over and over again to understand--but somehow Karen Kellock is so far out she's right here at my right-hand! Hah--she's so unusual and evocative her verse rubs off (I do not scoff)--Martha Thornquist, Georgetown
Champion Guides is shocking, true and witty. This is an incredible book. Pick it up anywhere and the truth hits your between the eyes as it gives vision and wisdom into human nature--both our own, and the people keeping us down. The first chapter is "genius is held down" and the second "genius must get up". Dr. Kellock is a maestro with words with witty alliterative virtuosity--a peculiar cadence all her own. It is higher poetry, and deep archetypal and systems psychology; and the second half, diet and fasting --" paleo-fasting". It is totally true, relevant, scary stuff, funny, and very revolutionary (esp. the fun diet). The author is a theoretician on the order of Jung or Bateson although she's just herself without comparison. The book has a simple formula to the realization of genius (dormant potential in everyone) which is also the "new paradigm" of all social, psychology and diet sciences. What we lack is our simple solution--veiled through obstruction. Obstruction released, enjoy the view! My life is changed forever and I'm re-reading it for the third time. Every sentence is pithy with life and truth as it brings you to eternity. Whew--these are self-evident truths which we never thought of before--yet always knew. Thanks KK for your aesthetic truths bringing relief to us all, and thanks especially for the paleo-fasting diet without any starch whatsoever. Your way has de-aged and slimmed me down considerably. --JMU Sr. , Dallas
"You are pure power and pure wisdom. You don't wrap your words in seductive ribbons and bows in order to sell them to the herd. You speak straight from the heart to those trying to live this life you speak of. For those of us trying to be away from the masses you are our only source of trustworthy leadership. If your website goes away we all fade out. Without you we have NO voice Karen"--O.L.
ALONE AT LAST
Karen: it feels so good to not get hurt anymore. You're so right about the subtle cruelties of people. And how we're all taught to ignore it, let alone study it, to actually see people as loving! And we get sick and depressed to the degree of that denial. It feels so good to see the "wild wickedness" of people, to have "aristocratic reserve" and just be enthralled in my own projects and times of day. Kathy, Detroit.
WE LOVE HER SASS
"These books are utter fascination, empowering and relieving. Karen Kellock has a vivid poetic imagination combined with rock-solid psychology producing a masterpiece theory with diamond-cut precision in formula and presentation. Because her cleverly subtle drawings double the impact of these unique principles, these anointed books produce bliss in me and I love reading them. At age 66 I had given up on myself but now I see a whole new life opening up before my happy eyes. Thanks be to God for KK." L. G. Minnesota
THE LADY HAS CLASS
"I am loving the new Champion Guides with images--wow! It is surrealistic how your drawings combine with psychology and it makes the whole book come alive. Your new illustrated editions make the original written books rare collectibles! R. Rawley Boston
Karen Kellock Professional Audience Comments
UC IRVINE POSTDOCTORAL STUDIES UNDER NIMH, NIAAA GRANTS WITH THE DEPT OF PSYCHIATRY, COLLEGE OF MEDICINE (UCI) AND WORKSHOPS GIVEN AT ALL UC CAMPUSES
Lecture to World Conference on Alcoholism, Los Angeles
"Karen Kellock has a rare wit combined with simplicity and boldness of delivery, as she speaks to the "misfit" in all of us. Her lectures are like machine-gun advancement of a fascinating and romantic psychology theory called THE DEBRIS THEORY OF DISEASE: All disease obstruction, all recovery elimination, all success attraction. Dr. Kellock’s depth and latitude in a massive theory is nevertheless presented in a simple formula with examples drawn from history, archetypes and nature. She is a wizard in her ability to field all questions and create understanding of this landmark psychological theory on par with other major theoreticians like Freud or Jung (archetypes) or the systems theorists of later decades. The audience reports immediate transforming experiences and her "books become bibles on the bed-stand”
Lecture to AMA Convention at Los Angeles Convention Center:
"Karen Kellock is a systems theorist with a whole new theory of psychiatry, diet and lifestyle. A whirlwind of out-of-the-ordinary concepts and views, she is scientist and evangelist as she touches each member of the audience where they live. Her “new psychology based on Einstein physics” is for everyday man in all cultures or age in a massive theory integrating all fields and delivered in staccoto-like diction, alliterations, picturestrips and rap which make psychology—this psychology—simple enough for a child to understand. “Man’s whole problem is sick systems and sin cycles…must repent for world success”.
Karen Kellock reminds me of Mark Twain ("do good and be lonesome") the way she caps on the evils of human nature. As her work opens up to ever-increasing complexity you become so enthralled you're hooked. It is tragically funny, in fact hilarious and so scarily relieving as it settles all doubts and explains the contradictions in our lives. She talks just like her books and its as moving and fascinating as she is magnetic and attractive. All I can ask is where did she come up with all of this? The truth value is indubitable as aesthetic knowledge in all of us down deep. This is timeless, eternal and universal because man's the same no matter when or where he lived. This theory integrates East with West, mind with body, diet with mood, and spirit and system with physical. The Social Sciences desperately need an integrating theory and paradigm with a general formula so we can take the social sciences into the future properly and neatly based on energy and system theories--we now have it, if only we will see it. This country girl sees society for what it is. And Just Skip Dinner is infinitely richer than what the title says, an adventurous journey of enlightenment." --James Kelmer, Ph.D.,
Psychology Dept., University of California
Her work is hard science presented in two styles: artistic (picturestrip) format and straight textbooks. Her use of verse opens up new avenues of thought while forcing the reader to see the same thing in from multi-angles of view. This makes the writing much pithier--with more depth and amplitude as it congers up higher worlds than the petty mundane greedy one around us. This the author does miraculously--never vacuously. She is a maestro with words, all about the herds--Mathew Egonsilini, Psychiatrist and friend, Las Vegas
To KK, World's Foremost Spoon-Theorist: I read the new E-Daily Fastarian and the picstrip theory is so revolutionary, otherworldly, subtle and educational. I understand everything about how fat-fasting works now. I am still a bit shocked. Even though I am seeing it for myself, I am not used to the ease of it all. And so cheap--who doesn't want to save money? Hundreds a month I'm saving, yet no hunger. A college kid could do this no sweat, or a fat ten year old (Karen--you've found gold!). --I.M. Beverly Hills, CA
I read your new book E-DAILY FASTARIAN. The simplicity of the spoon theory is astounding! It is so perfect for anas who require order and simple and compact and pristine. Unless one is allergic, there is no excuse now not to fat fast. It is so easy and cheap with nut butter! I feel like my definition and refined qualities are re-emerging, though differently than the cheese route. I am on a high-- so much energy! And, it makes it so nice to be able to join people/family/world once a week in a fish meal and not fret (of course, the salad veggies clog me up for a day, but then it is back to the fat high). You are right, so evacuating! Simply amazing. And no one ever has to see me eat, which is such a relief! I saw on the website you mention alternating foods so not to form an allergy. Part of the greatness of your "nutbutterarianism" for me, is the relief in not feeling overwhelmed with so many choices as it completely kills all other cravings (as you know)--Celine
The writings of Karen Kellock are extremely eccentric. I have her hard copy book, but read anything that she writes on fasting. It is the most advanced method I am aware of. It is also scientifically correct way to maximize the metabolic benefits of fasting while minimizing the possibility of a negative outcome. I've tried all kinds of cleansing/ fasts. Her method of one fat based meal a day followed by a day fast, then repeat, is sustainable and very powerful healing method. You retrain your glucose metabolism in this way. For proof we have only to regard Karen Kellock herself who bikes 25 miles a day in the hot desert summer sun of upwards to 125 degrees and arises daily between midnight and 3 am working until late at night--sustained only by one tiny meal (of fruit and animal fat) in the mornings. www.NewTreatments.org ( on "new treatments for Crohn's Disease, colitis, diabetes, autism, depression and hypoglycemia")
"Get Clear, Get Coins. The champion is child-like--no more a neurotic adult filled with obstructions". It's a real relief stopping the energy thief, all from reading Karen Kellock's Debris Theory of Disease. It's a description of the obstructions and a simple formula for life based on Einstein's Energy Theories--fascinating energizing reading. Champion Guides is a white tornado cleaning out every cell in the brain, and with the diet and fasting plan in Part B, your body too. These are not just diet books like others--they are whole theories including the psychology and people problems for we can't stop eating and become ageless until we fix those too"--Carlos Romero, M.D., NYC
Dept. of Defense, United States Army:
"Life Changer--All you Need".
Almost every sentence I wanted to write it down or burn into memory. Karen's champion guide is so simple to read yet you'll re-read every page to absorb her profound insights. I know Karen's truths to be true of human nature and the human condition but no one's ever expressed or figured it out before. . I needed Karen to remind me of what to eliminate, through concepts the prophets never recognized. If you read this your life will drastically transform into the exact, exciting, supercharged garden arena she speaks of. You will know these credences unless your energies are blocked (as most are). I've been attracting God and success but will remain forever humble because I know it's God coming through my unblocked creative energy and cosmic fasting forces.
Maryanne MacDonald Department of National Defense
Karen: Your reversal dieting theory is true from the viewpoint of medical and paleo-anthropology, for early paleo reversals between fat and fruit combined with fasting is confirmed by every study available. Humans are supposed to be lean and healthy as early man sourced high fat meats/marrow, effortlessly transitioned to ketosis and went without food alternating with fruits. This created a unique trigger that stored and then rapidly reduced body fat when reversing between fat-rich or glucose rich foods. As you point out, primitive man having unstable food supplies had to fast, and fat is the only thing making that tenable along with fruits when readily available. I found your site fascinating confirmation of this early evolution. The combo of nuts and dried fruit is so energy dense you can eat far less to be satisfied. Nutritionists argue you need much more variety for essential nutrients but the body’s efficiency with daily fasting offsets this need. Without getting anti-oxidants from a lot of fresh fruits and veggies, by fasting (eating little) immunity goes way up, even minimizing the need for anti-oxidants! You apparently have found a strong and massive readership of people who are ready for it. I commend you in your scholarly work and artistic means of presenting it, for it is rock solid. Mathew Bennette Ph.D., Dept of Medical and Paleo Anthropology, University of California
WORKSHOP ON ANOREXIA PSYCHOSA TO CAREGIVERS 2004
Karen Kellock is a creative genius who stuns with gems of continuous revelation and wit. This is as fascinating as it gets. I recommend you read Arts of Paleo Fasting: Magic Door of the Superior Man to see what I mean. The jaw-dropping audience got so excited as they laughed and cried and their old self died. This is a genius female who skillfully thrills as all our old thoughts and popular notions she kills--she either talks poetry or she doesn't talk. This is a whole new theory of anorexia nervosa, which she calls "psychosa" and beautifully describes why she uses that term, for anorexia is indeed the pivotal point at which all contradictions in science meet, and that's why she takes it as an area of interest. My gosh I never thought of these things but after hearing her explanation so brilliantly laid out in theoretical form it seemed perfectly obvious. As I found myself saying "ah-hah" all through the workshop I felt I was in the presence of a great theoretician whose theories will endure. So very unusual and attractive--we enjoyed spending every minute with her and wanted more of her shining light so bright--anyone with eating disorders or any other addiction can now have hope. I can only say "I knew her when". Dr. Jeramie Pagacito, Palm Springs
Letter from New Believer
I LOVE what Karen Kellock says, that "human functioning has more to do with released obstruction than vitaminerals". The diet part of this theory is right-on--all recovery comes from elimination not vitamin-stuffing! And then the vegan crowd says we were designed to eat great variety--they obviously don't believe in the KK oligiphagous theory of man: that like the eagle and the lion the more mono (boring, monotonous) his diet the more highly specialized, adaptive and optimizing it is? I tell you this theory makes PERFECT sense. I know it's true deep in my being. Then people chirp "a true fast is longer". Baloney--fasting is just eating less, and this calorie restriction (daily fasting) works so well. These dogmatists want to get so legalistic about everything--how relieved I am to be out of all that! If we fast just daily-- if we eat every 24 hours-- at least we can continue our work. Now that this diet has revived me completely I work 20 hours a day so I need that one small meal. . This diet combines Ehret and Atkins. Some say we need vegetables and not so much fructose. Yah, Ehretism is high fructose--that's for sure--for fructose is cleansing and energizing!
from a close friend of Karen Kellock: "I've known the dear lady for years. Karen is a true teacher and scholar, constantly gathering information then feeling compelled to give it away: "an info-philanthropist". She has graced the lives of those who are fortunate enough to be her friend, truthfully--she has saved their very lives. Karen is a true giver and I pray your life will be as blessed by your reading her words in the fascinating books and two websites of this gentle lady: karenkellock.com and karenkellock.org (the web's greatest free radio station)"--W. M. San Francisco, a friend of KK from 1974 at UCI Medical School)
This culture is both fat and sugar-phobic so I am sure KK steps on many toes. Never have I had such cell-evacuations since I started even cheap cooked apple juice! It's all so amazing and counter-intuitive from all we've been taught that the dreaded sugar, fat or cooked could do such a thing. And ONE DRIED FIG for dinner--that's a winner. So cheap, practical, dense, high in magnesium and other amazing black fruit vitamins, cleansing (three times faster than a grape according to berg's tables) and you just gotta purchase ten pounds every four months! How incredibly practical--I sure don't miss the old days of continuously shopping for fresh fruit, putting up with civilization to do it. Oh the manufactured hysteria surrounding the "correct raw foods"--and guess who sells it? God showed me that was not the way and Karen Kellock made my day. For it ruined my life in one way or another every time I got involved with the "organic fruit man dealer". yuk! And hauling all that fruit or veg home, and it spoils, and your still starving and all the constant mess of physical reality. The raw vegan crowd is OBSESSED with the physical reality of produce--a hyper-busy life filled with things--rather than the higher potent and ultra-simplified life of daily paleo-fasting from not just food but people and bad habits. I’m so alive and free--freedom from the doctrine of demons and the “devils crowd” who are so phony and loud. David Jester, M.S., ex-vegan rawist turned paleo-fasting enthusiast.
Karen Kellock Reader's
Thanks Karen: I love reading your books, and starting Ageless Cornucopia. They make me feel so much stronger while reading. Thank you so much for bringing the FACTS to people - I know you have changed my life. I'll have a very different life now thanks to you - and it'll be a much better and happier one. I've weighed up to 150lbs and down to 120ish - high weights from binge eating and lowest weight through drug abuse. Then I went on holiday with my sister where I was constantly berated for my eating habits. I didn't feel strong enough to argue and ate what she prepared. I came home feeling awful and a good few pounds heavier then managed to get back to where I was. So - now the most EXCELLENT news. 3 days of FFF and I don't feel hungry - I haven't felt moody or bloated or anything. My weight went from 135 to 133. Feeling so blissful and great! Louise
I love reading your books. You're a top class groover! A.M.
Karen: I am writing your from my rock retreat (above). I've read tons of books, but have never read anything that even comes close to yours. Your writings are extremely creative and motivational, also very well written. I practice daily fasting so I have experienced many of the fasting miracles that you write about. It's great to read things written by someone that have also had these experiences...not many do. I don't know anyone that will fast. E.O.
I was introduced to your work through your article on Anorexic Systems and then I bought the ebook DAILY FASTARIAN. It's amazing how accurately you describe the system, the first person I heard defending the anorexic, showing how special she is. Most psychologists JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND! So it's really important to have someone with your background to support us. The hostility and competition among women is a major factor in the development of anorexia and bulimia. Not only among sisters (Cinderella syndrome) but between mother and daughter - that could be called "Snow White syndrome". What you said about the father, who's so unsure of himself he chose someone with shortcomings makes a lot of sense. Maybe he lived in an anorexic system himself, and couldn't break the pattern. Had he been a woman, and he might have been an anorexic--I.S.
Karen! That is wonderful! Thank YOU so much!!! I will never be able to put into words what you have done for me-- you have given me my life back! I am still scared some days of returning to my old templates and habits, but then I read your words and INSTANTLY I am back to my bliss! I wish I could come be with you and the Dinner Convention! I think I might slowly move my one meal from dinner to breakfast so to get food 'over with'. My old template reactionary behavior terrifies me, but I know this is the reptilian 'fight or flight' and is only due to stressful environments where I feel threatened. I will just have to learn how to adapt and stay microfocused. I will be finally moving physically out of the ill family system I was raised in and the ill culture I grew up in. I feel powerful to know I have survived such terror! I am always thinking of you and your GENIUS as I develop my own and explore my creativity!!!!!!!!!!! Any other thoughts, suggestions and words of wisdom you have for me will be ETERNALLY TREASURED! clk
I wake up in the morning and my first thought is food. I go to bed with thoughts of food. I often have dreams of eating it. The only time I am not planning a meal is if the meal prior had made me sick. It is such an intense whirlwind. It is if I am trying to hold myself back from food all day. When I eat first thing in the morning than I hold myself back all afternoon and night like I am fighting being swept up in it. Just one bite and I am hooked. Now I've found your diet theory and I KNOW it is true--this has all happened because of my fat-deprived system. Thank God there is a way...LK
Karen: Thank you so much! Everything is still going fairly smoothly. I still think I eat too much (8 ounces of cheese melted +olive oil + nuts + dried fruit) because the combination keeps me only eating once a day and then I don't crave ANYTHING ELSE!! I will be ordering all of your ebooks. I find it helps me to keep on path by reading your website at least once a day--I love your words and pictures and everything about you. You have literally saved my life!!!!!!!!!! Much Love, Celine :)
Recognize this stuff you said (in green) below? Karen, you are a genius and inspire me sooooo much. You understand how terrible food can be like no one else I know. I love you. I can't wait to tear through CHAMPION GUIDES again, cover to cover. You should have gotten a Pulitzer for your work. The problem is- is that REAL truth usually falls on deaf ears. But rest assured, there ARE SOME who hear you LOUD & CLEAR. We are fortunate & blessed that somehow you have become a part of our lives. "Fasters are the winners. They can see that the eating life is constant cravings, a futile fix that has no fruition- it just repeats itself without solving problems or bringing you joy." "Eating is only lust." "Now that is true addiction- craving the fix without thoughts of the horror that comes afterwards. It's a lifestyle that costs dearly. It took me years to let go of it- to realize how much happier I was without even the right food, while ascending to a much higher mental life which instantly dissolves through food's fix. WE CAN'T HAVE BOTH!" --Thank you Karen! Les T
Hi Karen, I've read your profile a dozen times - such a wide cross-section of views, wants, dreams and visions. For sure you are a total woman who knows where she is going and will contribute and learn along the road. I had trouble understanding your solitary simple life and how that vision of the "super spa resort" could be in one person. I admire the homework and preparation you have put into your career of Champion Guides - you are a dedicated lady. But it also appears as if you have touched the high life - in my opinion the simple life with short bursts into the rat race and concrete jungle is a perfect lifestyle. I'm not so well defined as you are but I think I understand you just a little. Your profile is very complex but it is just the tip of the iceberg - you sound like a wonderful lady - and a very attractive one as well. J.W.
Karen Kellock! Congratulations on being brave enough to send out your rich visions! So much of what you say in DAILY FASTARIAN makes utter sense to me--after three days I am still taking it all in. Your writings are scarily compelling to me, I MUST spend time delving into it's riches~ I won't bore you with my personal situation but will say thank you very much for bravely being, for intently figuring this out, and for your proffered info which translates into help - I feel excellent not eating, and hope to find the inner self that will allow me to continue on this way, this path to locating the self that's covered over by a physiologic and spiritual security blanket of fat. Blessings, MH
Hi Karen, I have continued to infuse/steep in the fantastic message you bring....you are at least 50 years ahead of your time! I pray God grants you the healthy lifespan to see it to fruition and that your dreams and imaginations in your attitude of wise youth and the tremendous swirling energy all around you (which you manage so beautifully) will finally be realized. My heart is filled with gratitude for "Arts of PaleoFasting", and I am so very helped personally to read "Ageless Cornucopia" about IR and bringing back the balance to a system wracked by decades of abuse, bulimia, and incorrect feeding - poor body! I feel privileged to donate to your endeavor which I know is saving a dying world! Your work has helped me more than anything in many years to understand myself, where I am, and what to do that will work, give peace, and seems to be utterly RIGHT for me. So I have made a contribution as I could to express my gratitude and hope that reading your actual books will be even more of a turning on of the spigot for what I have already gotten from your wonderful work. BLESSINGS to you, Karen, on this path you have marked so clearly for those of us it "finds" - Martha from the KK Forum
Karen, thank you, thank you! I'm loving your Just Skip Dinner ebook. So much hope and inspiration at a very dark time. The Red Salad with some nuts gives me incredible energy and positive feelings. Ketones! Haven't felt this good spiritually in years and skin so soft. God Bless You! Janet Cassidy
I so agree with you, dear lady! May I recap what you present all through your work and add my own thoughts from paleo studies. Hunter gatherers who live on very high saturated fat/meat diets are very healthy, lean and vital. Humans do excellent on paleo foods be they meat or fruits, but as you point out throughout your work, westerners live on lethal starch combinations which damage beta cells and the brains insulin receptors so they no longer achieve satiety on minimal quantities of food. To get this insulin sensitivity back you have to cut intake dramatically, as you do or eliminate all sweets and starches. I think meat is very good (except hormones may hurt). But raw vegan people are no healthier than anyone else, and suffer from immunity and psychological problems more because of a lack of protein/fat which causes hormonal imbalances. Bread is used like meat because it is more dense and pushes blood sugar up quickly but it just doesn't work for humans. Population growth is destroying our ecosystems and the future is grains, grains and more grains: that means more drugs, disease, obesity and lower quality of life, but what can you do? Every time I see my friend nutritionist she is fatter and fatter--it is so insane that people eat 3-5 times a day. All because the foods they eat are so glycemic that they suffer crashes every 3 hours if they do not eat. So sad and ridiculous. The Atkins diet actually accelerates protein loss and they lose substantial lean mass even though they are consuming so much protein... so Atkins can never work long term--only your reversal dieting will work! Fasting is referred to as "starvation" dieting in the literature since the Minnesota studies of the 1950's and people are scared to death of missing meals. Maybe you can save them. Keep to your course—you are completely correct. Dr. Thomas Becilli, University of Wisconsin
Dear Karen, what a great and wonderful ebook "just skip dinner". I am compelled to read your truth and wisdom until the end. Your writing is spectacular and so full of logic and truth. I've always intuitively known the fasting/fruit/fat way to be the answer, I was a bodybuilder in the 80s and so I was absorbed with the almighty bodybuilding diets of animal fat, protein, nuts, fruit and a few carbs. I am an FFF for a few months now, I've been leading up to the challenge. I'm at about 1000 per day of either the Ramadan fast or the Buddha fast. I'm an Athlete and Yoga Instructor so this all fits perfectly with my lifestyle, FFF is the answer. It's the missing link for now. I've traveled the world, lived and worked with foreigners and spent my 30s discovering the people of the world. I have attained many wonderful experiences and learned some of the secrets that life holds but your writings have catapulted my intrigue and excitement . Thank-you, MaryAnne Department of National Defence - DMMD Bilingual Technical Editor
Dr. Kellock. How I love "How to Make Gold"--it is so inspiring! These sentences -with-symbols and style of writing trigger so much insight and relief. This is really like gold to me and I love it more than anything else you have done. Although I have loved them all, my next favorite being Just Skip Dinner--what an excellent name, and because it's the title, you did that so we'd never forget! Thanks! G. D. S.
You're evidently a paradox to most as your theory is often shocking and controversial but to your loyal readers--every word is true. We need more people like you--for no one makes me think like you do. I loved CHAMPION GUIDES original Ebook--it is extremely handy as I flip between chapters and look up keywords. Thank you for your new glossary--how original. . Then I bought E-JUST SKIP DINNER and loved it even more having read the text. I want to hear you lecture to continue clearing my brain like a tornado. If it takes a raving maniac to change the world, let the muckraker to it. --Ramonde Menistri, M.D., Specialist in Addictions, Eating Disorders and Life Transitions, NYC
BRAVO ON "CALVIN'S PAGE"! This is the best thing you have written -- in terms of biblical essays. You are a rare woman with discernment and love for the truth. You remind me of another Christian woman who despite being so busy would post brilliantly--so much so her husband threatened her with divorce. You and she are so unlike most of the men in today's so-called "Christian Church". Paul was correct when he strongly suggested that in serving Christ it is best not to be encumbered with family obligations ----- as you are not at present--Rand Winburn, www.icon-busters.com
PICTURESTRIPPING: You are a gifted artist! Rand Winburn, www.icon-busters.com
I'm so impressed with the diet you recommend and the results are obvious! I feel much more elegant, happier and I never felt better!! Much less aggressive, but not apathetic, full of energy, doing the things that were supposed to be done long ago... And the loving thoughts towards others ARE TRUE--not faked, they're there!!! I was a vegan for some time and miserable, always craving animal protein, always spotty, always hungry and always criticizing others for what they ate... how I regret!! About cooking: it sterilizes the food and brings out the taste. How can it be bad? Hitler and Mussolini were probably constipated people--evacuating frequently doesn't mean you're not constipated. R.S.
Beautiful, very clear, very interesting. It's amazing how fast I can see the effects of eliminating most of the carbs and adding lots of fat. I got rid of a very persistent acne, it's a miracle!! As a binger I was swollen but now I feel strong, light, lean. AND HAVING MUCH MORE FAT THAN I USED TO--and unbelievably it's cheap even with cheese, as I'm spending much less on food. M.S.
Karen: I'M NOT FEELING HUNGRY AT NIGHT ANYMORE!!!!!! I'm so happy! I used to be dry, now I'm silky smooth. I used to feel cold, now I'm cozily warm. I used to be mad, now my mood is wonderful. I feel very grateful as my skin has a different glow, and what's best: NO SPOTS (which I've ALWAYS had since age 11). A.K.
Karen, this whole thing is revolutionary! It's a wonderful diet, very filling. And yet you feel light. I love and adore fasting this way, after lunch I spend afternoons with God in one miracle after another--Isadora P.
Thank you Karen for all of your writings on living a daily fasted life. Your knowledge about eating and fasting is priceless. I read your online work almost everyday and am currently awaiting release of your hard copy books this Summer (as people across the world are waiting)! Since I was a teenager I fasted for spiritual purposes, then I encountered your website. I was in a bad marriage for the reasons you discuss (like men not wanting to see women eating). Even after going below my required weight my ex-husband still complained that I was not slim enough for him. He continually projected his inadequacies on me, resulting in mental and emotional abuse--a roller coaster ride where he wanted a divorce when I was around and didn't want one as soon as I moved out. I made the final decision seeing that I deserved better. I am now happily remarried and my husband supports me in everything including my fasting. For years even though I was not anorexic I could see the fallacy of eating three meals a day--bloated legs, for one. I was told it was necessary "to metabolize food better" and other justifications to eat. But the Bible never says to eat so often--Jesus ate a fig, or a piece of fish. I currently eat one meal a day--sometimes I eat a few almonds and cashews then eat raisin and sip some Welch's grape juice. Other times I eat an omelet with cheese. I am so grateful for you and all you have done to change my life, by strengthening my outlook and providing guidance of the right foods -- I have even given my mom your information on dog food. You are such a blessing and I thank God for you everyday--this lifestyle is so spiritually refreshing! I understand exactly what you mean by Holy Spirit ease...you don't even think with the natural mind the spirit just knows exactly what to do or say. I wait for God to increase as I decrease. Again I can not express in words how much of a blessing you are to me because as a teenager I experienced spiritual things that no youth minister or mentor at any church could explain and I always felt unconnected to them. They could not help me--no one except you who can give guidance...So I patiently wait on God. Even just this year one time while fasting daily according to your system. The other night I dreamed that I came to know my purpose and destiny and everything just clicked. "All disease obstruction. All recovery elimination. All success attraction." It clicked and everything I needed to fulfill my purpose was accessible to me. I remember the joy and exhilaration I felt in that dream and I know it was from God, through you. Karen I love you and I pray for you. May God prosper you as you glorify Him in your true nature. C. S. Butler
What a difference already. I have thrown out all breads and grains. Breakfast yesterday was the black fruit with nuts. Then nothing all day save lemonaid till dinner which was the doughless pizza. (what a great recipe) Then later on a little more black fruit & nuts. I really like how this sooooo simplifies the eating routine and is sooooo healthy. Nothing from a can or a wrapper with an ingredient list that has words you can't even pronounce. And the best thing was that this morning everything came flying out- smooth as silk. Just like you said it would. This is really, really great. Thanks again Karen for a new diet & a new life, -Les .M
KK: When younger I ramadan fasted each year from sunrise to sunset. Of course, I would overeat at breakfast just to be bloated and miserable half the day, and then overeat again to break the fast after sunset. Yuucchhh - I hated it physically, so needless to say it was not 'high" spiritually. But now I see the light , 'cause you showed me what's right.. I have been yearning GREATLY for some path, a new method, a new way that made sense to me, yet could be my way and a middle way. Physically and spiritually, I have felt bereft after using OA as a nazi-patrol but now I see all these previous things were just treads on the stair, and that my food life is at the center of that which I must win over. Your work has helped me more than anything in many years to understand. M.L.
Marvelous Karen! You are indeed high-tech and through you I've finally found something that is working wonderfully. The past week I ate only cheese, olive oil, and cashews in a huge meal once a day (either night or morning, depending on when I crave). I feel great and completely satiated. Hopefully I will eat less but this is a huge accomplishment for me , and my pants are so much looser. I am staying away from all fruit, seasonings and tomato to crave less and stay full longer. I am eating A LOT of the cheese combo but it's sensation not deviation, and it's only a meal--then I fast, for "finances, family and fun". -C.D.
Karen: Having come across your website, while looking for advice on how to handle pushy people (currently my neighbor) that steal time and drain energy, I was amazed to find someone else who shares many of my own thoughts, views, and feelings. Indeed, as an artist and writer, who loves solitude and creativity, I can really relate to everything you have said and found myself starting to cry tears of joy, simply from knowing you exist. I have set your website as my homepage, so I can ponder it a little here and there, digesting and assimilating each sentence as if it were a delicious morsel, in a feast of ideas and words to edify the spirit. Thank you for your contribution to the world and to my life. I have truly found comfort and inspiration in your words of wisdom and knowing I have a kindred spirit. --Mary Louise
Hello KK. You probably get thousands of emails but I really needed to write to you. I'm 19 years old and I live in Australia. I came across your website by accident, I believe it was meant to be. Never have I before found someone with such similar thoughts, ideas and beliefs. I too want too eventually get a Ph D in psychology and am also the queen of fasting. I find being around people for too long very tiring and have always felt different and out of place in this world especially around people my own age. I still struggle with control, mainly regarding food, how do you ever really overcome that internal struggle? I wish I could give it up forever, I hate how society revolves around food when so much thinking can be done without it. Thank you for being real and unique, I feel less alone in this world after discovering your website. Take care from Penny S.
I just can´t get off your site--I love it! You give me strength to keep on being who I am. Now I don´t feel weird, I feel special. The ana prayer is the sweetest thing! I feel so honored! You have made me feel more comfortable with my desire to be alone. Love, I.M.
Hi Karen, know that fellowship with you is a sweet and edifying part of my daily walk. your faith and inspiration make blessed company. may the peace which passes understanding be with you, Bruce

This is what my goal must be now - the Mature ANA. When I say the mature ana, I think of woman. Not little girl, who is scared and selfish, but a selfless woman who radiates beauty and compassion. Audrey Hepburn. Karen Kellock. These are the mature anas I strive to be. The immature ana does everything the wrong way. Everything is food focused. But the mature ana, the saint--my God, do I finally get it? I need more thoughts and theories and affirmations on the mature ana lifestyle, not the immature ana diet; and you give this to me!--S Nunn

"Karen, your artwork is inspired!"---Paradisians.
Karen. All I can say is Thank You. In my field of anorexia there is more than a little interest in your work. We think it holds the most valuable messages we’ve come across. –KD Goodjelly
Never in my life have I read an article that so fully and perfectly describes how I have felt and feel. I have been on the edge of anorexia my entire life. This condition has manifested itself into severe depression, and horrible mental illness within my spirit. My God Bless you always! You are a true genius of Christ! Thank You - Thank You - Thank You. You will be in my prayers every day. God bless your insight and into the soul. Michelle
I can't believe how smart you are, and quick on the draw. Suffice it to say, Karen, that you are my favorite writer EVER!!! I am completely in awe at what you expressed, particulairly about genius. Yours, by the way, SHINES like a bright STAR/PLANET in the sky. Your web sight is so full and complete and overflowing, a sure sign of GENIUS REALIZED. -Merium Gobatchy
Dear Karen: Good to see you realize that fruitarianism is insufficient and that only by alternating fruit with fauna-fat can the deficiencies be offset. Thomas E. Billings: www.beyondveg.com
Hey, Karen, You are right that the Gift of this Knowledge brings detatchment from the things of this world. It's also bringing me detatchment from my family members. Only in being Myself do I have True Power and that’s the way I’m staying, through fruit- and paleo-fasting. God Bless, I have found my nest, with the best—that’s you, the strength of two. To the masses I say: let them eat stew—it makes them askew. Like a cow—“moo”, when I’m a kitten—“meow.” S.H.
My dearest teacher: Right now I think: I have so much energy, enthusiasm, and am so close to God—and I achieved it all thorough your paleo-fast. It works so good for me it is unbelievable, no more waking up during the night gasping for air, no more afternoon naps, life has become an adventure for me . I have reached what I want in the physical body. You are right fruit and veggies not only make me hungry sooner but don't give me the energy I want. If I have a piece of steak and some onion and half a glass of wine at lunch I feel like a king till the next day, nothing bothering me anymore. I have enthusiasm even my customers notice those change in me but I don't tell anyone. This is between Me and God and I don't like the negative atmosphere of food debate. What works for me may not work for you--the body is a fine instrument and you have to fine tune it. I Don’t believe in long fast either if I have what I want now, what would I gain from a longer fast? My interest have shifted from food to more exciting things. Vegetarians don’t live the longest life-- the centenaries are usually found inland especially in the mountains. This body is mostly proteins and it seem to me we need protein now that you open my mind to this it is clear to me. I love you for all the good things you made me discover, wish you reach your goals in life above all I wish you to be happy . Ciao your friend Pietro. Have a great day you beautiful soul.
. Beloved Karen. It feels so good to fast in the mornings and just take coffee. I feel very happy right now. I know that even fruit would ruin this ecstasy!! Only fasting and then my Red Salad is safe now!! YOU ARE SO RIGHT! I JUST WANT TO GIVE YOU A BIG HUG AND SAY THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!! (((((((HUG)))))))) -Steph N.
Thank you so much for letting me lose 10 pounds I couldn't done it without your website and you recipes thanks! --Sassy M.
Ciao Maria: The picture strips are so great and unusual. I love them and they are beautifully done. You should be proud of yourself. I wish one day to see you. Hope someone gives you roses for Mother’s Day as you take care of others. It is most rewarding to read your thoughts. Pietro from Rome, Italy
The picture-strips are AWESOME!!! They are MESMERIZING!! They give each adjacent paragraph of text extra meaning... in fact, each little paragraph becomes so much more meaningful WITH the pictures, which , indeed really ARE worth a thousand words. --Bob Silverstein, Hawaii.
hi my names bec, your web sight is one of the only pro-ana sights that still let me view! I've read every one of your words, and i think your a remarkable person! id just like to say thank you for being there and for being so smart.
Thank you so much for an incredible website! I am anxiously looking forward to spending more time with it in the very near future. It's wonderful, and refreshing! Thank You, ~Melinda
Karen, I respect you very much. I know what you are doing and it is right & powerful. I feel you have a lot of insight you could give to someone like myself. Someone who wants to walk the relatively same path, but does not know how exactly. I think about the World Spa you wish to build in the desert—your “Glory Church” based on daily fasting. Do you ever feel the need to share your ideas with others outside of your books? John Nicholson San Antonio
I've been actively reading your website online and it's been wonderful reading! I am very interested in your path to this feeling of inner satisfaction and grace.--obsessed to be thin
Thank you Karen. I will try your suggestions and I'll let you know how it goes. Harrah to you for putting your words of wisdom out for others to take notice of and learn--Katey K.
I would imagine you don't have time to talk to too many of your followers, but I want to thank you for giving of yourself through your books. Thanks to you I have been on a comforting journey with myself and my Lord. I don't fast like you do, but I am learning to lay off food when I am uneasy or feeling down. I fail at times, but thanks to your website I know where to find my comfort and inspiration. I am 76 years young and it makes me feel so good to know there’s someone as great as you out there to explode ageist myths. God bless you, the Queen of Sheen! It means lean, us lookin’ like a teen! --Normal Lybarger
I found your website and it is an eye opener!!! I just can't stop reading and absorbing all the facts and truth you have revealed in your writing!!! I am going to get avacados, lemons, tangerines, and raisins today and try the 18 hour fast. I have fasted before, 21 days once, but it left a bad "taste" in my memory. This is a new day for me, a turning of the road so to say, to a final and satisfying way of life. Thanks so very much, Merilina Coreles
Just wanted to thank you for your writings - have been reading your work for a long time and never wrote to you. fruit-hearted, Shelley Bibeau (getting redder!)
Your website is amazing --Roe Gallo
I am a 19 year old college freshman. and have been battling "food demons" for quite some time now. I never thought I’d overcome my obsession of food until I stumbled upon your website.(a miracle). I read every word and you are truly my new idol!....in a world were every human beings seems to thrive on the lives of movie stars and celebrities, I have truly found a new role model to look up to....you. I know the Lord was speaking to me when I came upon your website and starting tommorow, I am beginning a fast where I will draw closer to God (I am so excited!). I just know God has a spectacular plan for me...and I can't wait to discover it!--Vickie Kieffer
Dr. Kellock, A few months ago I stumbled across your internet fasting site and reviewed every inch of the material. You have a wonderful ability to make even the weakest people (addicted, cravings controlled) have the will power to fast. The fast I found to most suit me is the fauna fast. -Semantha Harris
Karen, Just came across your website and I have to say WOW a hundred times to even come close to what I think of your writing & ideas. Unbelievably good stuff. A wonderful style of subtlely combining prose & poetry together. Nietzschean in its lightening like piercings. A kindred Spirit, -JN
I began to read through your new book yesterday evening, Karen. Its message and style quicken, encourage, inspire. I wrote a short email to your potential publisher encouraging his action and promising my order. --kevin Richardson
Thank you so much for your valiant efforts to speak the truth. I seen my whole system in your article. Thank God I am now out of my family, and have been for 14 years. Carol Lightell Des Moines
Thanks again, you are a GENIUS... but not too heinous... I mean: "Your Highness" ... at your finest... kindness... you're somebody I just LOVE . Very entertaining, and motivating... Profound, pithy, and witty... charming, disarming... but not harming... yes, keep farming! Farming for lost souls... our goal's to save lost souls... so there's no woes... --Ahmen Heaven
Karen, I thank God I found a friend like you. I know that you are a help-meet to me and that Jesus has led me to you. Your website is a Godsend. God forever bless you Karen---Thank you Sharon
Hello, it is Christmas day and I was thinking about the people who have inspired me this year and you were the first and foremost to come to my mind. so i wanted to say thank you. reading your website gave me so much more than i was looking for--I found God, and my True Self. -Sarah Bowden
I wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed reading the information in your web site (I went there by mistake, then I couldn´t believe it), your style is so witty and hard-hitting. I really can’t believe it and it’s given me a whole new lease on life. I would like to know more about you. With my best regards, Alfredo Echavarría Medellín, Colombia.
Hi Karen, I am so happy that I found your site. You are talking directly to me. I read and read and read. I am so happy that there is someone like you to speak on this. You are a very enlightened woman. I would love to speak to you. (Please!!!) Your writings have given me so much comfort. I am a 36 yr old black man here in Charlotte NC. I suffer from a poor self image. I am working my way out of being a yes man.!! BJ Murphy
Dear Karen, I'm writing to thank you for the time you spent in writing Champion Guides 1. I stumbled across your site day before yesterday and spent all day yesterday reading the excerpts. I ordered the book this morning . I do hope you will be able to find a publisher for ChampionGuides 2 because I surely would like to have a copy of that too. -K.N
I have recently read your website and thought that it was absolutely amazing how someone could think like me! I was once a faster who ate very little and trained competitively as an athlete. i was very thin. but over the last two years i have become very depressed and gained over 60 lbs due to medicines and the depression itself. i long to be thin again because i don't feel myself with out it. i was wondering u said u were once laden down with food -how did u bring yourself out of it and could u help me to. i feel like food is my crutch now and i want it to end-thanks sid
Hello, I take time to read your site. It is very rich and uplifting. I enjoy it. Since one week, I turn from fruitarianism to lacto-fruitarianism. And it is great because water is leaving my body. I felt full of water (like a balloon) and also very emotional. I feel better now and keep going... I like to fast - since 30 years, date of my first fast. And like the way you speak of fast. Since many years, I use to tell people who want to fast to do a 24h fast, eating at noon and next day at noon. So we speak same language. On many levels. It is a real pleasure to "meet" you.--Urwana
Thank for your site and the beauty written within it. George B.
Excellent, excellent, excellent, excellent, these suggestions are all so excellent! thank god for your sane and logical mind. God bless you and god bless America. you are a true pioneer in the health field. umm Sarah Denver, Co
My dearest Karen: Your rhymes make it sooo funny (with surprising twists), and therefore entertaining, and therefore a reason to keep reading... All I can say is keep writing, drawing, poeming. You are the greatest. No other book on earth could come close to hitting the nail on the head. B.Silverstein
I read you whole book and I LOVED it!! What I like about both Fast Miracles and Synchronicity is how you incorporate human psychology into the mix, and of course our personal relationship with God... Your words (and way of arranging them) are inspirational, educational, entertaining, and downright FUNNY... I have never been so inspired to FAST every day, between meals, or just not eat, to fast and pray... Your concepts, the themes, are repeated in different ways, and the whole thing comes together very well... Besides the rhyming, you've got a certain metric beat that keeps repeating too... and certain psycho- social themes that get drilled into the reader's mind... You get your point across very well... Congratulations, creative genius... A. H.
I tell you that a dynamic inspiration is coming to you when you least expect it. Send your subconscious mind out to accept your golden egg that you so richly deserve, Karen. Hundreds of millions all over the world will soon be saying they love Karen Kellock. Ask almighty God for your reward, dear Karen. –Sarah Grinnage
It won’t be long now as many will love, respect and adore you for standing up for victims of the world. For bringing out the glorious day fast our love for you is deeper than the deepest ocean and taller than the highest mountain and "karen kellock" is a universe within herself and a rising star in the literary world. See how bright she is as the creator has endowed her with special gifts to share with all people. someday she may lecture in England or Russia or Germany--wherever the need for the enlightened product of her keen mindful insight. now you just keep on keepin' on karen. there is only one boss and thats the one who created you. happy days ahead. Aiesha Muazi
From time to time, i hear your words in my mind... "Be a man, not a van..." That line alone is so funny!!! but most people don't get it.... (I mean, it's not your best line, but i think it's really cute, actually makes me laugh every time i think about it.) "Food is so bourgeousie... time to be a gut-amputee..." I love it!! It's so metaphorical... Keep it goin'... J. Hansen
Excellent... i will follow your wise advice... And the Pulitzer Prize for most creative, and most inspirational health writing, goes to... Karen Kellock, my teacher and hero...!!! –Joseph Caluba
Dear KK,Your work has changed my life entirely. I wish if I could know for a fact that you are there and that you will continue to write and complete your work. Your writing has truly wiped the smog off my lenses. I can see a bit clearly now. Please continue to write. Please write to me if you can. It would make my day. Serena F., Cairo
God must have sent you because he knows we need your support. You’re the only writer I’ve come across who speaks to these thorny “people-problem” issues. Many times, we're left to wonder "is it me, or them?" They never liked the way I dress, talk, think, walk or feel. For that all, for what I have been, I was called a liar, a witch, a sorcerer, an evil spirit, wicked, let alone insane, mad and crazy. Now that I am 43 years old, I do not know how I survived it all. I grew up in India. They said "she should not be here. She should grow up to be a greater character, IF she leaves here." I succumbed. I believed them. I listened to them. I always knew what I had was "precious", "God sent". But when things got too dark inside me and I believed I was terrible, awful, despicable. Going astray is what I regret. It pulls me down. But through you, Karen, you precious person, I have learned different. I owe you my life. Karen, stay there. Give light. His light. Speak the truth. Be different and believing. I need you out there. -Lamia, Kuwait
Dearest Karen, Forgive me for wondering: how do you get the time to read (it's obvious you do - alot), to write, to experience the world and to answer messages from me (and others)? Every time I read your writings, I can not help but wonder: How come you've been through such challenging situations, among adversaries, and maintained your "sanity" (if I may). What was in your background that gave you the clue to hold on to HIM despite hardships? Why didn't you become alcoholic, a drug addict, an anti-social .. etc.? In other words, my dear Saint Karen, what kept your spirit "intact"? You are an inspiration, Karen. So far away you are, but how close you feel and share. I also live in the desert, in Saudi Arabia. I feel so close to you being in the California desert. May God maintain his Light to shine through you. Thank you for sharing Yourself with others. –Selena Nasi
Hi Karen, I read one of your article "Blue Genius", and I got hooked. I had this euphoric elation for a couple of days after I read it. And then I started feeling a bit "afraid" to re-read it. I did not want to experience the pain, to face my insecurities, to go within, to remember. I could not help it. I was so intrigued. How can anyone go so deep and come back out feeling, thinking and articulating their feelings so clearly. I know. Many have done that before. But you're different. You address the same issues many other writers, psychiatrists, fiction writers, and others had creatively /scientifically talked about. But you had it all there together: it is obvious that you have experimented with your ideas on your own self. You have credibility for that. The most credible part, was that you gave the most wonderful solution, the ultimate: identifying the true relationship between Him and us. This time, from His point of view. You identified the nobility behind this relationship. You portrayed it like we can be of value after all. You grow up knowing that we "humans" have failed. Nothing is waiting for us except wrath, annihilation. We're not going to make it. We failed Him. There's no going back. You, told me that I still have another chance. Because I did not understand the first time. Now I am supposed to know why I am here. Karen, Please tell me who you are. would this be rude of me to ask? Who are you? When were you born ? where? who were your parents? What are those pains that you had to face because of who you were--your vivid, conspicuous differences? I do not mean to intrude. I just need to know you.-S. K. . Ramzy
I think you have awesome ideas and are really inspiring. I really liked what you had to say and I can totally identify with your ideas on society and eating disorders.-Ana
When people ask me who are my mentors, or who have been my greatest sources of inspiration, I name Karen Kellock along with Arnold Ehret. And I will continue to do so, especially with the new style of witty rhyming aphorisms and now the incredible Karen Kellock PictureStrips! They really make psychology fascinating. You are an artist and thus the true psychologist. I’m sure you’ll go down with Jung and Freud as a revolutionary new paradigm: all disease obstruction, all recovery elimination. You’ve really put it all together for the world, and we all thank you! Also Systems Theory: people hold us down, especially True Genius--thank God someone like you finally etched this in stone. God bless, G.S.
While I continue to explore and digest your wealthy talents, I continue to thank our Father. How can you know everything about me. While I understand your understanding-we both know it can only come from God. I keep getting excited by acknowledging your felicity in expressing the wisdom of God and more importantly your vivid experience of life. I just had to thank you and let you know what this is accomplishing in me. As I continue I am in awe because I realize between the lines that our lives may have been parallel in some or many instances. I don’t know, maybe just my hopeful revelation- that you are my sister in God. Thank you for reeling me in. Also and foremost I am reassured that He loves me as I read all your words—Sharon H
You are a whirlwind of out-of-the-ordinary concepts and points of view. This book has influenced me more than anything in my life. karen kellock, you're right on--I can't get enough, but you've given me enough for thirty years! All I can say is keep your website payments up--never lose this website, you've got inspired sight. for us all. GB
You are so very different, Karen. Living on your vast desert land, Oh Karen. This is God's kingdom. I always visualized heaven as separation into vastness--that's you. You're set apart so you can write for us, the ones "still stuck in swill".. You sound like you have a very "subtle" sense of humor-- I always hear a trace of a smile in your voice. Hope is what kept you going. You are a fighter, a survivor. Maybe you always trusted your mind and your own goodness. I wish i could reach out, to see you. How very nice to know more about you. How enriching. How inspiring. Do you feel privileged to have suffered rejection by your own folks? No regrets, you're a superstar created from mud. Love, Leisha Kahn
Your writing sounds so rich and inspiring... The MESSAGE, of course, is more important than the medium (terse verse and timed rhymes), but the medium enhances the message, and makes the author sound regal and distinctive, which (of course) you are!! I like it a lot, and I think you're on to something big and beautiful!! Ricardo Navarro
Karen, i've read your article on anorexia and the family system and i thought it was superb in its description , not to mention highly accurate. I felt as if you were describing my life story. I felt a sense of validation as I read your article, validation that iI couldn't even get from a professional (as you described). I'm guessing you wrote based on your own life experiences. Just one little point i didn’t agree about this system impacting mostly women in higher socioeconomic categories. I am a 27 year old man who went through this system you so fluently described. I think that all along during my whole life I was simply searching for god. it was hard to let go of it all (the system etc..) but I did it. Its like when you are one person trying to express your "simple yet creative" desires for spirituality and a joyful existence amongst a group like mine you lose...at least for a little while. I think that this phenomenon can occur to whomever wherever. Well let me just say again...fantastic article, I hope you have much success writing this book as it is desperately needed by a society such as ours. Best wishes emilia conroy
Dear Karen, I recently came across your website. I find it very interesting with a very fresh viewpoint. I know that missing dinner always makes me feel better the next day. I think I eat dinner more out of social pressure than hunger. So I was wondering if you think I can get the results I want with a short daily fast rather than taking 40 days out of my life for a juice fast? Thank you for your website, I intend to share it with my spiritual minded friends. David Dunkle
Karen, The picture strips on your web site look great. Good job! Mark Cosgrove
Karen. When I first read your articles on "Jesus Diet", I was so overwhelmed at your style, your insight. It gave me an uplift when I most needed it. I checked your bio- and I learnt that you have Scottish, Italian and Indo-Arabian ancestors. That was even more intriguing. This cosmopolitan spirit was felt even more strongly when I read your article about Ramadan, it all made your ideas so much accessible. The oil-rich countries are so wonderful to live in. So comfortable sort of thing. Kuwait is very much a mix of Arizona and California. Beaches all along the coastline. Kuwait has been here since ancient times. The new Kuwait, though, is only 45 years old. it is nice. BUT, human relations are shallow. You are judged by how much you have--there is no depth to human relations. It is a very small society, like a small town in the US. people are judgmental. You have to fit somehow in a niche or belong to a group. If you do not, they'll find a name for your group. "eastern, western, religious, non, liberal, conservative .. etc." Yes. I am an Arab. originally from Egypt. Born and raised in Saudi Arabia. It feels good talking to you. I wish you could visit. –Lamia R.
I am so glad you’re always there when I wake-up. I bought your book, Champion Guides 1, and can't put it down for too long! I lay it right beside my Bible, they kind of blend. Thanks for being you. God Bless, Norma
Karen can i tell you how much i LOVE this new diet??....LOVE it. It is perfect for me. I ate once today, RS with tuna....yum yum. NO CRAVINGS!! happiest day ever. i love the cleaning my stomach does.....love love love it. isnt it great? is fish the only meat used for reversal dieting? Is turkey ok? That spanish omlete sounds GREAT for the lacto-vegetarian transition.....how do i make it? Please put it on your recipe page.
I just have to tell you what a great web site you created. I really can't put into words how much the stuff you write hits a beautiful, resonant chord. I spend quite a bit of time at night grazing the internet fields when sleep is being elusive, and lately your site has been at the top of my bookmarks. I'm just about thru it all and have to congratulate your efforts. it sure seems that some people are better able to communicate the oneness between us without getting lost in the concerns of self, and it's rare that I actually take the time to express my appreciation for that talent directly to that person. But this being possible today, I felt like taking the time now to thank you and acknowledge that what you are doing is a great help. I just hope you continue your work and I look forward to continuous new additions......you’re prolific. .Stay High, Jeff
Karen, this is wild! I’m impressed by your no-holes-barred insight. Very heady stuff and the rhyming is a True Gift. Dave Born
By the way, stopped by "Champion Guides" this morning & read for the first time "Feast or Fast". I must tell you it was fantastic. Very inspirational. GOOD JOB! Also much enjoyed the new section on reader comments. Thanx, thanx, thanx, Les Marjolin
Dearest "Queen" Karen!! I am a 40 year old Female from South Georgia, fried food capital of the world! I stumbled upon your wonderful life-saving web site last week and decided that the path you have taken is a journey I would like to take! I don't know that I would travel as far as you have, but I would like to try. I began by traveling to our cabin in the mountains for one week....leaving cigarettes and food at home!!! I began with a mini-fast in the mornings and eating only fresh fruits and vegetables (cooked and raw). I could feel myself changing each day.........the sky bluer than I have ever seen, the smells of the fresh dirt, trees, green leaves, everything.......stronger than ever! I have returned to South Georgia with a renewed sense of myself..........what I want from life, who is most important to me and how I see ME! Would it be possible for you to advise me on foods I can eat for my daily meal. I have your "ANA Recipes" and they are wonderful. If that is possible I will send you your $100 initial fee. Your writings are great but if I can have you too, well….I would also LOVE to see the "promised photo" of you now that you have reached your Fruit and Leaves destination! When the snowbirds come back—get ‘em to take your new picture, please. I know you’re a beautiful little lady but I want a picture. Layne Mayne Tifton, Georgia
Karen. First off...I just love your website. Its so fascinating.. I read a little of it every night before I go to bed. I’m a 39 year old single mom who used to fast about 16 years ago. Lately I haven’t had the willpower until now: Your website has inspired me, and I'm now on day 4 of my restriction. I' m eating cole slaw and a potato a day...followed by an 18 hour fast. I'm hoping to graduate to a full fruit diet soon. My question is...I have the strength to do this now, but my only downfall is chewing gum to get me thru the day. Do you think this will hurt my cleansing process? Id really appreciate your advice. Thanks so much.… Becky
Karen, U go girl. That is so awesome. The less you're able to eat the better. As long as it does not compromise your heath minimal intake is the way to go. You are the Ana Queen, and also the Fat-Fruitarian-Fastarian Scientist-Chieftess, Dr. Marikelok. Les M.
Hi Karen. We are so fixed with eating in this society that as soon we skip a meal we think we will starve. Moses and Jesus fasted for 40 days with no water and no food. Many people live on very little and they are fine. And about the fruit diet-- I feel great with your diet in your first book. I love paleo-fasting. It has changed my life and made me so very happy every single day. It gives me so much energy and now even enthusiasm. I was a dull log but now I’m excited so much I can't hardly sit quiet. Is it the same for you without paleo-fasting? For me it is also a matter of lifestyle. I don't ever tell anyone I'm fasting or that I'm on a diet and I refrain to talk about food with other people. It is my decision to go along with my own things not even my closest friends. I cannot and don't want to go back to my former diet. I just feel too good now and especially I feel I'm going someplace, where I don't know. But my life has changed so much that I expect something good will happen every day, and it does. I owe this all to you and your brilliant work and thank you, Pietro.
Karen Kellock you belong in history as the greatest philosopher, psychologist, artist, inventor, satirist, scientist, poet, playwright, picture-stripper, preacher and friend. As your Italian friend I'm also very interested in your newest clothes and villa designs and all of your many other " Karen Kellock Kreations" Joseppi Chevasi
Dearest Karen, please tell me you know how much u mean to me. I praise the Lord for bringing you into my life. He has shown me so much through you, thank you so much for loving God and sharing it with the world unapologetically......I truly love you dear. You are an amazing person, the same kind of person I want to be.....JUST LIKE JESUS. thank you, RM
Oh Karen , BLESS YOU!! What u just wrote to me is EXACTLY what I want!!.....TRANSFORMATION....now and forever, always. I want to be a new person. I want NO MORE of what I have been in the past; I want NO PAST. Due to your hilarious and serious writings I’m well on my way. Dorothea V.
Interesting - protein, fat, carbohydrate. Please keep them coming. Repetition from you is how I get these truths engrained in my head. Thank you so much. You constantly change my life every day. I don't know how I made it all these years without you. Stephanie K
Dear Karen, first, I want to thank you for your work which I feel so fortunate to have discovered. First, your web site and, then, your book, Champion Guides. Three years ago, after thirty years of macrobiotics, I discovered I had advanced colon cancer and underwent emergency surgery to remove the ascending colon. This past year, I began water fasting for periods of ten to thirty days, to which my wife objected for various reasons, not the least of which was my need for nourishing the spleen--for I am anemic and take B-12 injections. When I discovered your material, I immediately felt a connection with the territory you've covered and began playing with the different types of fasting you describe, particularly fauna-fasting, eggs and cheese once a day, which was great (especially coming from a life-time of carb addiction). The question I have is, did you use fauna-fasting to change your condition from a fruit-gluttonous period and then return to the frugal fruitarian regime? If the material in your book is outdated, what is your current view on eggs and cheese? One last question has to do with the grape cure, which I'd like to play with for a while. I've read descriptions of said cure to call for grape juice and fresh grapes (raisins, in the winter) to be used alternately every two hours each day for up to several months. From what I gather from you, a few sips (instead of several 8oz. glasses) of grape juice and, maybe a couple of handfuls of raisins (instead of great quantities of fresh grapes) will get the job done better. Is that accurate? What sort of quantities do you recommend for someone who wants to take preventive measures with a history of cancer? I appreciate your taking the time to respond to this note and thank you once more for your inspiring work. If your available to give me the phone consultation we spoke about I will send $100 today. Blessings, Bruce Bailey
Hi this is Peter I went to continue share my feelings about you and your incredible work. I’m so impressed by your prolific dedication! Incidentally, so far the diet in your first book works best for me—fauna fasting. I probably will try Ehretism in some future but now I’m able to fast for about 48 hours after an omellette and it s wonderful. I also wake up in the morning with alot of energy ready to take down the world. It seem to get better and better every day thanks to you again bye Peter Ciao
KK: I have to tell you how much I ADORE PALEO-FASTING (and you as well), and the great things it has done for me. I know people criticize it but what do they expect people like ME to do with the cravings "from hell?" You gave me a way to live, and it’s working like a charm. Follow your heart dear, look around you at all the people you have "cured" with paleo-fasting! I seriously believe I may have lost it if I stayed with fruit. you were smart to recomend me the reversal diet—my road to fruitarianism. I just love my new diet and EVERYTHING about me is changing due to it! My face, my skin, my weight…how different from when I had hyperinsulinism. -Vickie K
Tomavo is a wonderful thing Karen... Thank you so much! It's now 3:15pm and remember how fat and ugly I felt at 8:30am? Not anymore. Swelling went down and skin is clearing up already! What a miracle meal--our tomavo in the mornings righting all wrongs and smoothing out all imperfections. S.N.
Hi Karen, I am moved tonight to tell you in the most humble way how much your life wisdom is coming to bear on people you likely may never meet. This is so inspiring to me. I don't know what is to come, but as an observer, your path is moving, ...inspirational. First, I came through my own experience in mini-fasting to feel grateful to you, but when, later, I gave copies of your books to a number of special friends, I received acknowledgement that, as a messenger, I had given them life-changing information, stuff that resonated so deeply that they knew one aspect of the rest of their lives. And maybe your one step closer to finding someone to help you publish the next book. Thanks, Karen, for bringing the reminder you brought to me. Love, Bruce Bailey
My dear Karen. Today I was so high on energy and incredible enthusiasm I felt between paradise and eternity. To me the best diet is one in your first book although my longest fast was 63 hours I eat very little and the benefit start to accumulate--feeling great every day. Thanks to you for showing me how to fast. Your diet changed my life so much it is incredible I have gone so fast. Only God knows where I will go and that's enough for me. Wishing your search will bring you everything your heart desires--you deserve it. Ciao your friend for life. S. N. Harotio
My dearest life-saver Karen Kellock: I feel so much better since I added fauna to the fruit diet. I don't want to eat meat and eggs dry my skin. So I eat a little cheese. I have found that to stay on top I may not need it every day. I often go for days on just fruit. I love the grapecure, and raisins are so easy--no more mess, forks, plates. But that little bit of protein keeps me well. I have even found that my posture is so much more erect--I walk proudly, whereas before I was all bent over. The best result is perfect elimination each morning—a combination of the fasting , fat and fiber. I love this new life. I often wake-up feeling so satisfied, and then fast for two days without any discomfort whatsoever. I have stopped arguing with rawists--I refuse to be intimidated any longer by them. It is so strange that "fruitarians" who are supposed to be so gentle and sweet are actually angry name-callers. Could it be they need protein? Becky R.
