"Atkins Meets Anorexia"

Atkins meets Anorexia was the lead in title used today on The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet.

Anyway, the show!

Here's a recap!

Images of Christin at her home, telling her story.

(She's so beautiful! We love you Christin!) She talks about the images of "Kimmer" on the homepage and her desire to lose weight. The story follows Christin's journey through weight loss to the Woman's World magazine cover and then her health issues that arose. Christin outlines the dangerous advice that Kimmer gave her, including daily laxative use and the questions she asked Kimmer about the safety of the diet in her role as PR Director and her ultimate termination from her role within Kimkins.

Video from the PI showing Kimmer's current visage are shown as well as the Russian Brides website photo theft.

On stage is Deni, (also beautiful! we love you Deni!) Christin, Jeannie and Melanie (SingingLass).

Christin compares Kimkins to anorexia and talks about her medical issues as a result of the diet. Mike brings up "SNATT" and Juliet says that Christin's symptoms sound just like the problems anorexics face.

M and J turn to Jeannie next and ask for a response. Jeannie says that Kimmer is in fact Heidi Diaz. Jeannie then says that there is a full explanation is already on the website, but it was NOT at the time the show aired. It is now, though.

Jeannie admits that Kimmer used poor marketing tactics, but the diet still works! It changes lives! She then goes after Christin and says to Christin that "You were under medical supervision!" and Christin says that she was not. They talk about laxatives and Jeannie says that they only recommend a laxative if someone has "potty problems" and Deni says "that's not what it was when I was on the plan" and Jeannie comes back with "Well, we're always open to making positive changes".

Jeannie has the audacity to tell Christin and Deni that THEY set a bad example for everyone and it was there fault as moderators for not helping others be safe. (BAD JEANNIE!)

Jeannie then says on national TV that Kimmer couldn't be there because of litigation and her deposition today and that Kimkins is currently dealing with a lawsuit. lol.

Deni then tells her story and her and Christin discuss how addictive the Kimkins plan was. Juliet says that it sounds as though they developed an eating disorder and Christin agrees.

Jeannie says that she is at Kimkins to make positive changes, to make every wrong right, as per her promise to the low carb community. She then says that they have a bariatric surgeon who is considering joining the Kimkins team. (Wuh oh.. lol)

Singing Lass is talking about her weight and blames it on steroids. Says that she lost 102 pounds and she stalled on Atkins. Says she was worried about side effects from WLS but the side effects from Kimkins are ok.. lol. Silly girlie! She doesn't look like she's lost 102 pounds........

Jeannie says that she feels like she's in the middle of a terrorist attack..... omg.

Next up.. the dietician and the doctor have a go at the Kimkins plan!

Reg. Dietician Glassman and Dr. Seigel (sp?)

Tippy accidentally sent an email that says "there will be a nutritonalist there as well, that scares me...." to the producer of the show! lol Glassman corrects her and says its "nutritionist", LOL.

The dietician rips right into Jeannie and yells at her for picking on Christin. Says that Heidi has as much right to give diet advice as she does to give legal advice. Says its completely unethical.

Dr. Seigel says the diet is ATROCIOUS. (He also discusses ketosis as a dangerous state for anyone with medical problems). He talks about the egg white challenge on the Kimkins site.

Dietician says the diet is dangerous because of lack of fiber and calcium and very low calories.

Dr. Seigel says that "No self respecting doctor would be
associated with this plan". "It's a total disaster and you could end up in the hospital".

Excellent show! Brava to Christin and Deni! And a special thank you to CJ, Mike and Juliet for bringing much needed national attention to this horrible, dangerous fraud!

Heidi Diaz Comes Clean (Well, sorta)

Monday, November 12, 2007

From the Kimkins website: (my notes are in red)

Kimkins Controversy

Dear Kimkins Members,

OK, so it's time to come clean. (a bit late for that, we all know the truth already!)

In view of recent events (can you say lawsuit?) and the feedback I've received from members, I've decided to set a few things straight. (A few things.. lol) Those of you who know me are well aware I'm a private person and prefer to remain that way. However, that doesn't seem to be in the cards.

So, let's put a few burning questions to rest:

Q: Who is Kimmer?

A: Heidi Diaz (translated - "I LIED when I said Kimmer and Heidi were 2 different people, many times!")

Q: Why the drama, denial and hiding?

A: For the past 10 years it was to avoid an invasion of my own privacy. However, for the past 3 years it was to protect the identity of my foster children. California foster regulations prohibit foster parents from making statements that would identify children as "foster", even by association. (IF you have any foster children, you broke the law by even mentioning them!) Identifying myself which could lead to my home address or identifying me in public could identify them. (PI didn't see any Foster Children while he was staking out your apartment.)

Q: Did you lose 198 pounds in 11 months?

A: No. But I did lose 100 pounds in 6 months. (cough BS cough) However, since Kimkins appeared on the Woman's World cover, I've been glued to my computer. I'm no different than any of you (YES you are. Not everyone is a pathological liar and a sociopath!) and I'm well familiar with stress eating or grabbing what's handy instead of what's Kimkins friendly. (And you're good at blaming others for doing it, too!)

Q: So you've regained the weight?

A: Yes, but I've been back on Kimkins for 2 weeks and have lost 23 pounds so far. (cough BS cough) I gain fast and I lose fast, that's how it's always been. I'll be experimenting and rotating with each option except Cycling because that will be too much temptation for me. I'm a lifelong dieter and I know what a free week (or weekend) will do to my willpower. (What willpower, sugar cookie?)

Q: What about the model photos in some of the Success Stories?

A: The majority of our earliest Success Stories were from another website and we couldn't take those with us. We wanted to show visitors the possibilities with Kimkins. So, while we built up (invented, stole, falsified) our newest batch, I created stories (I made stuff up and lied) which were a compilation of previous successes that people had shared with me over the past 10 years. We're extremely proud of all of our members (paid and unpaid) who have experienced weight loss success.
(Again, Kimmer with the half-truths. Just say "I stole some pictures from a Russian Bride website and pretended they were real success stories to try to convince people to join!")

Q: You have been photographed without hair. Did Kimkins do that?

A: Absolutely not. (But it DOES cause hair loss! Way to try to spin it!) I developed alopecia universalis 23 years ago. (Aww poor you. Not.) It is an autoimmune disease that causes total body hair loss. Our family has cluster autoimmune conditions. Mine are alopecia, hypothyroidism and eczema. Other family members also include alopecia plus type 1 diabetes type 1, multiple sclerosis, lupus, eczema and rheumatoid arthritis. Autoimmune is when your body attacks itself and destroys certain functions. Most people with an autoimmune condition develop more than one. If one person in a family develops an autoimmune condition, other family members tend to develop them. (Bla bla bla, whatever. You LIED about your wonderful hair care routine. Just say that. Enough of the pity party.)

Q: What about the people who joined Kimkins because you said you lost 198 pounds in 11 months or because of the success story re-enactments?

A: I offer my sincere apology (Too late! You banned most of them! Cow.) to anyone (which is everyone) who felt misled or joined purely on that basis. That was never our intent. (The hell it wasn't! When you post FAKE pictures and LIE that is an INTENT to MISLEAD) Kimkins will provide a refund and membership cancellation upon request to anyone who joined Kimkins prior to November 1, 2007. Please write

' ); //-->
by November 16, 2007 and provide your full name, current or former user name, PayPal transaction number and PayPal email address. (You gonna be broke now, chica)

Q: What about the people who want to continue with Kimkins?

A: We recommend a good primary care physican and counseling.
A: A lifetime membership is lifetime. You're here and that's permanent!
(Unless you get banned!)
In fact, I'm going to be part of the "Watch Us Lose" models on the homepage (UGH spare me) and will update my stats each week, add updated photos and post in the Kimmer's Back on Track Challenge. I will lose my weight all over again and everyone is welcome to lose right alongside me. I had baseline medical tests done a few weeks ago and will share both my starting and final results once I reach goal which I hope to be around my birthday in May 2008.

Q: Will we ever meet "Kimmer"?

A: I'm going to do my best. (which means I'll have some family crisis and won't be there) I truly am a shy person (oh please) who prefers to stay in the background, but a Kimkins Cruise is planned for Summer 2008 and I'll be there to meet & greet everyone! We will be asking members for feedback on local meet-ups as well so everyone has a chance to meet me and network with other Kimkinites! (Hey! Thats OUR word! Thief!) Support is everything in successful long term weight loss. (How would you know... exactly?)

Q: Anything else? REAMS!

A: Kimkins works. (Duh. Anyone that doesn't eat will lose weight. Doesn't mean its safe!) I have offered my internet style of Kimkins diet advice for 10 years. (But you're not QUALIFIED or licensed to give diet advice!!) It was hugely successful (because it was based on LIES) which is why Kimkins became popular. My first 8 years were 100% voluntary and I even turned down gifts. (except the ones I scammed people out of by saying I lost my purse, etc.) My goal has always been for people to learn the very simple and very effective basics of quick weight loss. This remains our focus today. Anyone who wants a refund and cancellation, please let us know.
Everyone who wants to stick with Kimkins -- well, what are you waiting for? Let's do it! I've got, uh ... a couple of pounds to lose myself and I could use some support!
(You could use some psychotherapy!)

Q: What about starting a Kimmer Challenge?

A: Excellent! Let's do it! I'm setting up the Kimmer's Back on Track Challenge thread, so come on over and say "Hi!"

Another long list of half-truths and lies by the expert of fraud, Heidi Diaz. I HOPE everyone will run away from this woman and her web as fast as they can.

Heidi Diaz! Take your bullshit and stick it!

Heidi Diaz Deposition / The Morning Show

Dun dun DUN!

Today is the day!

Heidi Diaz is supposed to appear in court and give her sworn deposition. Will she show? We'll let you know!

And.. finally! A nationally broadcast news program is covering the Kimkins scandal! The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet will air its segment on Kimkins today! Check it out and look for Christin! Tippy / Jeannie is scheduled to appear as well, it should be MOST interesting! Click here for local listings: The Morning Show

I've been thinking about this all weekend. What will Tippy say? How will she defend -

* The red dress picture?
* The fraudulent before and after pics

* Heidi's own statements that you cannot change, alter or tweak the program in any way Heidi's own advice to restrict calories to 500 a day (original boot camp plan)?
* The mysterious "new owners"
* The lawsuit
* The foster children fundraiser scam
* The founder of the plan weighing 300+ pounds
* The Acupuncturist giving medical advice not pertaining to his field
* Fitness Guru who mysteriously disappeared after saying no one should go below 1200 calories?

On and on and on.. There is no defense for any of those things. Her entire platform will be "but the diet works! People are losing weight!" Sure it does, Tippy. Anyone that doesn't eat will lose weight. Duh.

I can't wait to see this show. Tune in!
