CAN YOU LIVE WITH KIMKINS?

Kimkins.com is a Web Diet Site started by a morbidly obese woman named Heidi Kimberly Diaz, AKA, “Kimmer” in an effort to scam thousands of innocent people out of their money in the name of losing weight. Kimmer brought in over a million dollars in the month of June 2007 alone. Kimmer used fake after pictures and success stories on her site that she downloaded from a Russian Bride site. Kimmer claimed to have lost 198 lbs in less than a year and kept it off for over 5 years when in truth, she never lost the weight at all. Kimkins.com is a very low carb, low calorie, low fat diet that promotes eating 500 or less calories, Eating Disorders (EDs), hair loss, and heart palpitations, just to mention a few of the health problems. People are encouraged to go lower and lower in their calories to see the scale move down a pound. Kimmer offered “Lifetime” Memberships and then proceeded to ban people from the site. This diet is dangerous and this woman needs to be stopped before someone dies.

Kimmer's real stories are the ones people should keep an eye out for. I do not believe her current story that she even lost 100 lbs, or that she is even on a diet now. Some think there was an invasion of privacy in taking video. She was out in the street. It's not like she was in her apartment and someone busted in or put hidden cameras in her bedroom. She is living a lie. She does not practice what she preaches. I agree 100% with your blog. But I highly encourage people to go see the video for yourself. Do the math and break down what the diet really is. If you don't believe what the anti-kimkins blogs are saying, then do your own research. If you come to the realization that you were scammed, do not despair. Many are here to help.
