The Rise and Fall of the Kimkins Diet

The website, CalorieLab has posted it's review of the Kimkins plan. Below is an excerpt of the article:

The Web site for the Kimkins Diet boasts that there is “no faster diet” and that people lose weight without exercise, special foods, diet pills or supplements.

The site describes the diet as a low carb, low calorie plan that allows users to lose up to 5 percent of their body weight in 10 days. The diet came to national attention after being featured on the cover of Woman’s World magazine in June, with a story that called the diet “better than gastric bypass” and told of the success of a woman who had lost 100 pounds in five months.

The trouble is, the whole diet plan was a scam.
