OK – So it’s May 1st and I have yet to see Heidi/Kimmer’s new updated pictures and stats.  Didn’t she claim to have a surprise for everyone, to be reveled on 4/30/08?  A “Good Number” on the scales?  Well, I’m still waiting to be shocked and impressed by her extreme weight loss.  After-all, she’s only (9) nine days away from her goal date (birthday)  – she should be real close to goal, by now.  Is it a coincidence that she has removed the “watch us lose” from the front page?  Where did all those losers go?  And how is their weight loss going?  Kimkins was taunted as the fastest weight loss diet, ever.  So where’s the weight loss?  Seems to me, it may not be all it’s cracked up to be – Maybe it’s just an extremely unhealthy diet that causes dangerous side effects, if followed correctly – OR, it’s just impossible to follow in the first place.  Therefore, no one really ever loses, at least not for long.   Or, should I have said, “They Lose Plenty”?   But it’s not just the weight…. it’s their health.

After a quick check at the Kimpound, I’ve found that Kimmer has yet to post today.  NOTHING!  And only posted 2 posts yesterday morning.  Nothing was said about her big reveal.  Maybe she thinks we’ve all forgotten…. She doesn’t know the ducks very well.  We never forget!  And it comes as NO surprise that she has, yet again, “come up short” on her latest claim or promise.  People who lie for a living just can’t keep it all straight. 

Hiedi/Kimmer, we’re still waiting to see the “New You”!   Come out, come out, wherever you are!!!

A Warm, Welcome Back!

Here’s the warm welcome I received shortly after publishing my first post in a month (see comment section of “I’m back” post).  It would seem the trolls are out in full force – ready to do battle – and just gunning for a fight. 

Well, I’ve had a little rest and am ready to go at it, if you’d like. 

 

I’m Back, 2008/04/28 at 5:38 PM 2008/04/28
 

Get Real
abc@abc.abc | 65.23.158.193

The only thing dark and dangerous about the diet has been the pathetic people with agenda’s trying to place blame when they have had other previous underlying eating disorders or psychological issues all along that caused them to take it to extremes.

From I’m Back, 2008/04/28 at 2:03 PM

So let’s discuss this:

Get Real, so what you’re saying is that all those folks who took Heidi’s advice and followed the diet exactly the way she intended and were harmed – all of them had underlying psychological issues and preexisting eating disorders???

Really?

I would have to wholeheartedly disagree with you on that one.  But, even if it were true (which it’s not) are you therefore claiming that Heidi WAS targeting those types of people?  Are you saying that she knew that those that would listen and follow her advice would do MORE harm to themselves by following this diet, considering how low in every category this VLC diet is?  It seems to me that you are saying exactly that.  That you believe that Heidi put this diet out there, knowing full well that she would harm others.  You are saying that those that follow this way of eating and took it to extremes (which is exactly what Heidi asked them to do) were already psychologically impaired and already dealing with eating disorder issues.  WOW! Now, isn’t that interesting?  Sounds like an admittance of guilt to me.  Why would someone, knowingly harm others?  Why wouldn’t she ask these, so called, psychologically impaired members to seek professional (medical) help?  I’ll tell you why!  Because she’s a Cold Hearted, Money Hungry, Con Artist that has no regard for her fellow man.  If that’s not “dark and dangerous” – I DON”T KNOW WHAT IS!!!

Good try, though, on trying to cause a ruckus.  But, next time maybe you ought to think through the scenario BEFORE you post a comment.  I think you confirmed my point on this dangerous diet.

 

 

 

 

 

I’m Back

Posted in kimkins on April 28, 2008 by kimkinscam

After a much needed break, I’ve decided to continue blogging about the dangers of the Kimkins diet and it’s founder (among other things…)   There are still many unanswered questions regarding the Kimkins controversy.  I feel it is still my duty to continue spreading the word about this dangerous scam.  Heidi Diaz (and her “followers”) will not continue to get away with advising others to cause dangerous health risks to their bodies.  At least not if I can help it.  This is a VERY important cause and I feel compelled to continue with my research and shedding light on this very dark and dangerous way of eating. 

So please bare with me while I get back on track and catch up.  And watch for more updates in the days to come. 

Sincerely,

MJR

  1. Mariasol,

I have added these dates to the time line. Thanks so much for your input. It’s very interesting to me to see the back and forth – cause & effect ??- going on between the two sites. It really makes you wonder how much Heidi has to do with MCD. Mjr

I’m not sure I want to be a “duck”

Ya know what? 

These past few days have been heartbreaking and painful to witness.  Nothing I could write here could come close to describing the pain I’ve seen some go through and it’s a terrible thing to watch. 

I think what a lot of people have forgotten in this fight, is WHY and HOW  **WE** got here.  Everyone involved in this crusade has a reason for being here.  A reason for putting effort into this cause.  And one doesn’t outweigh any other.   Let me repeat that: ONE DOES NOT OUTWEIGH ANY OTHER!  It’s sad to watch along as people dig at each other and poke at each others feelings and mental stability.   It’s sad to realize that some are held to a higher standard then others.  Especially when they have NO RIGHT to poke at anyone.  People make mistakes, they fall down, they stumble, but, that certainly doesn’t equate to mental instability.  It also doesn’t mean they should be trampled on, for their mistakes. 

What cracks me up, though, is that it only takes one or two posts by an “untouchable” (and I don’t mean that in an ugly way) to make everything alright.  WTF???  I really thought, coming into this fight, that I was surrounded by people who had “class” – “conviction” – “morels” and “standards” – my picture was inaccurate.   Blurry at best!  I can see clearly now that things are not as they seem.  I think, what started out as a crusade against Heidi Diaz has turned into a debacle before my very eyes.   To think that I’ve always maintained that there was no “mob mentality” ???   It breaks my heart to come to this realization.   Nothing is as it seems!  I have been naive in thinking that above ALL else, we were ALL on the same team and had the same goal in mind.  You can’t imagine how painful it is for me to come to that realization.

Ducky, if that really was you, I have to say, I’m disappointed.  That’s really the only word I can find to described my feelings right now.  I had held you in such high regard and at such a high standard.   And that’s even without ever knowing you.  All I ever knew was that you were “the one” – the one that everyone looked up to and admired.  To know that that statue has come crumbling down (at-least in my mind) has taken ALL the wind from my sail.   

I’ve made a few friends along this journey.  And for that, I am truly grateful.  I have learned more than enough, about consumer fraud and it’s effects on the human psyche.  I’ve learned “code” and lingo that I never would have learned had I not entered this fight.  I am a blogger – and that had never entered my mind before.  I’ve found out things about people that I never knew I could find on the Internet.  I’ve learned that VLCD are dangerous and that overweight people can and do have anorexic symptoms and behaviors.  I’ve learned what a healthy diet really is and how grateful I am for not having followed the Kimkins diet when I signed up in September 2006.   I’ve learned that you will not change every-ones mind, no matter how hard you try.  And that there will always be someone out there, willing – ready and able to scam you if you let them. 

As you can see, I take with me, a lot of new knowledge from this whole fiasco.  Knowledge is good.  The more you know – the more you grow – and I’ve grown A LOT! 

Thank you to those that have extended a hand to me and have shown me friendship.  It means the world to me!!!  I know I didn’t publicly get involved in this cause until much later than most – but I have been working hard to help.  I have a great amount of respect for most of the folks who  fight this fight and I walk away with that in my heart.  You guys are amazing and I know that because of your efforts, Heidi will be brought to justice for her crimes. 

If I should stumble upon any Heidi information, I’ll be sure to pass it along.  But, for now, I need a break.  I am confused and saddened by what I have witnessed these past few days and it doesn’t work well with staying focused and on task. 

God Bless,

MJR

p.s.    Mimi,  I just wanted you to know that I’m sorry you have had to put up with such hateful and ugly comments written by people from your past.  I wish you happiness, contentment and the knowledge that you are loved!!  It’s evident that you have many folks in your corner and I am truly happy for that.  I need a break right now – because I’ve gotten to the point that I’m angry every time I read comments from a select few and it drives me insane to watch along as they fill the minds of those that only want to understand, with such bull shit.  You are a hero, in my book.  You’ve stood up and taken the hits like nobody’s business and it does my heart good to see that.  But, it can’t be easy – and that’s why I’m so sad.  You are a pillar of strength and I am proud to call you my friend.   Hold your head high!  You’ve conquered demons that most would run away from.  I’m proud of you.

Kimkins – Magic Chicken Diet

kimmer_current.jpgbonnie-at-135.jpg

OK, I’ve spent 3+++ Days on this post and I’ve given up!

I need some help here, guys!

It’s like a full time job – going back and connecting the dots….so if any of you could shed some light on these connections, or add to them, I’d be more than appreciative.

I feel like if I keep going at this by myself, I’ll never get it (this post) up and posted.  LOL

So keep watching, as I continue to add more and more information to this post over the next few days.  I’ve only touched on very little of this massive, underwater,  iceberg.  I think there is much more to be found.

NEW ADDITIONS WILL BE IN YELLOW 

Here is the original post: 

Is there a common thread?  A common denominator? 

Let’s look at some similarities and differences between the  two and You Be the Judge!

Mariasol has done an amazing recreation of the time-line on the creation and development of the Magic Chicken Diet.  Read all about it here at Mariasol’s Blog.

MCD Time Line:

  •  9/23/02 – Bonnie’s brother registers his condle site candleboxcandles dot com through DomainPeople, Inc.
  • 6/08/06 – Kimmer leaves LCF and opens Kimkins.com
  • 8/01/06 – Bonnie claims to have started her diet
  • 9/07/06 – Bonnie registered her condle site through HostMonster
  • 5/02/07 – MCD website is registered
  • 6/10/07 – Bonnie’s husband, David places an ad at GetAFreelancer for a “CLONE” of Kimkins.
  • 6/12/07 – Bonnie’s 50th Birthday – She has lost 160 pounds in 10 months
  • 6/26/07 – The “Fascination With Kimmer” thread begins at LCF.  First post by “Paula Jayne” asking about Kimmer’s before and after picture.
  • 6/28/07 – Another “Texas Candle Factory” site is registered to someone in CA.
  • 7/03/07 – Kimmer’s Classmate.com picture found by “Tooter” at LCF
  • 7/20/07 – The MCD site is launched.   $19.95 will buy the first 200 members a lifetime membership.
  • 9/11/07 – Bonnie posts her first comment on her site.  She also trys her hand at marketing – by creating a couple of MySpace profiles and uploading pictures and videos of her weight loss success.  She has jumped in with both feet at this point.
  • 10/6/07 – Bonnie’s brother modifies his site through DomainPeople, Inc.
  • 12/9/07 – Bonnie decides to increase the “introductory” price to $69.95. (WOW- such a big jump for such a new company) Even though it is believed that there were only 20 members on board at this time.  And most, if not all were personal friends of Bonnie’s.
  • 12/16/07 – Bonnie’s magic chicken dot net site was registered
  • 12/20/2007 – The Lupers registered the MCD dot net site. 
  • 1/31/08 – Someone installed new software at the main MCD site and ALL 70 posts went POOF – GONE!  
  • 2/04/08  – Bonnie (?) modified the MCDdot NET site through HostMonster
  • 2/6/08 – Bonnie modified her candle site through HostMonster
  • 2/6/08  – Someone started a VERY UGLY posting rampage at the MCD dot net site.  It was apparent that the “ducks” had ticked Bonnie and/or David off.  The ramblings were painful to read and seemed to be written by a very disturbed person.  It stayed that way for a few weeks and then it was changed. 

Here’s something else:  Hulon Pate left a strange comment on Jimmy’s board on 12/14/07 – and was “called out” for being a “liar” by several of the ducks.  Could this be what spoiled something the MCD people had up there sleeves, that warrented  $69.95 price tag?  It was around this time that the price jumped from $19.95 to $69.95

Kimkins time line as it relates to the MCD site info above.  Most of what I’ve written here comes from old posts at Ducky’s, Slamboard and KK Controversy sites.  My point is to try and find a connection (in regards to dates) between MCD and Heidi.  For instance, cause and effect…. if something happened at KK, did it affect MCD in someway?? Or vice versa??
