“This is so sad, so many people who have dedicated their lives to this. There are so many more jobs out there that would help people out more, maybe a shelter or pantry. Put this energy into helping others with physical labor instead of just typing.. Makeing little comments directed at Kimmer, or the Kimkins way of eating..how old are you. Grow up and do something useful. These people will take care of themselves, the starving people on the street can’t, please help them. Be a big brother, or big sister or something.
This is really getting old.
FYI I am an adult female, 46yr, I lost 62 lbs in less than 4 months, did not take laxatives, minor hair loss, no heart palpitations, and a clean bill of health for my family Dr. I have maintained my wt loss since the first of October and no signs of anorexia, I weigh 150lbs, and am very happy at this wt. I am an adult, therefor I made this decision on my own and it was the best decision I have made in a very long time..
Thank you Kimkins.”
Since when does fighting the fight against Kimkins mean that other causes are not being fought? 

Medusa’s reponse…..

 Anonymous…I’ll tell you what’s “sad”…Kimkinites following Kimmer’s advice (when she doesn’t follow it herself) who end up starving themselves and ruining their health. That’s what’s sad.And who are you to say we don’t help others out in shelters, etc?Yeah, I agree with you…it is getting old…because of people like you who continue to support Heidi Diaz and her starvation diet plan. You and other Kimkinites can personally hold yourselves responsible for the perpetuation of this diet.And if you think you’ve gotten off scot-free healthwise by following Kimkins, give yourself a few months and then come back to me and tell me how you’re managing with your thyroid whacked, your hair falling out in clumps, chest pains, etc. I’d love to hear from you then.Now, do something useful yourself and go stick your head back in the sand. I’ve had it with you and your like who are so blind that you can’t see that the woman whose diet you’re following is an admitted liar, thief, scam artist, and fraud who never lost a pound following her own Kimkins starvation diet, who is still morbidly obese, and used fake Russian Bride “before and after” pictures to depict herself.With people like you visiting her website and buying into her weight-loss plan, she made $1.4 million through fraud and deception. If that is the kind of person you wish to be associated with, then good on ya’, honey.Now buzz off. I have work to do bringing that scammer and her diet down

And here is my response….. 

Hey Anonymous,
So, I guess if it’s worked for you and you “have seen” no adverse conditions, then it MUST be a “healthy diet”? Huh? What about ALL THOSE THAT ARE SUFFERING? What about all those that have ruined their health by following this unhealthy diet? What about those that ARE STARVING and dealing with VERY DANGEROUS eating disorders because of following the Kimkins diet plan to the tee?You have no compassion or empathy for them?You think because they are adults then it’s OK to ruin their health.I’ll tell you what’s SAD. Sad, is when a 46 year old adult can’t see past their own stupidity to “see” the big picture. You could starve yourself all by yourself, without paying $80 to a scam artist. Anyone can loose weight by NOT EATING! But to sit there and say that just because you’ve seen no adverse effects in yourself – means that it must be healthy, is just plain stupidity. You can’t possibly speak for all who’ve joined that site and followed that diet. You can’t possibly “know” what others have had to deal with when it comes to their own health. Who are you to speak for them. Who are you to preach to the anti kimkins folks about what they should or should not be doing? What are you doing to help others? What are you doing to help your fellow kimkinites from falling into the dreaded eating disordered black hole?Are you telling others on the kimkins forums to NOT use laxatives daily? Are you telling them that if they are losing handfuls of hair that they should eat more? Are you telling them if they are having heart palpitations that they should stop following the diet and see their doctor. Are you telling them that FOOD is not the ENEMY?
I’ve read the posts over there and NO WHERE do I see ANYONE preaching those things to those that are struggling.If anyone should be ashamed of themselves, it should be YOU!
For continuing the perpetuation of a FRAUD! Your “seal of approval” could actually kill someone. Have you ever thought about that?I agree with Medusa, Go Stick Your Head Back In The Sand!!! Because it’s people like you who are helping to hurt so many. Once you come out of the “protective confines” of the Kimkins forums and start defending that crazy diet, you open yourself up to all that you get.Oh, and congratulations on your weight loss. I do honestly hope that you “tweaked” the diet to be more healthy and that you do not have to come back here, down the road, and admit that you have ruined your health (like others have).
Now, THAT WOULD BE SAD!!!!

Others, like BamaGal, Jimmy Moore, Avenue Girl, OhYeahBabe -fired back too. 

Apparently, Anonymous hit a nerve with myself and others.  Speaking for myself, I saw red when I read her post.  Who does she think she is?  What makes her think that the ducks and others who are trying to shut Heidi down aren’t involved in any other worthy cause? 

Anonymous, Ive got some more questions for ya! 

Do you really think you can walk into a hornet’s nest and lay down accusations like that and then just wonder off?  As I asked you in my comment, what are you doing to help the helpless?  How are you responding to the posters on the Kimkins website who are struggling to keep it together?  Have you told the members there to eat more?  Have you told ANYONE to see a doctor?    Just because you are a 46 year old adult who lost a lot of weight in a short amount of time, doesn’t make you  some sort of superior voice of wisdom.  It only makes you look stupid to have followed such a defunct diet.  I could easily compare your line of thinking to those on the pro-Ana sites.  They think their way of (not) eating is the way to go too.  You may not be showing any signs of health problems yet!  But, what are you going to do and say if you do?  Are you going to continue to trash the hard work of those that are trying to stop this self proclaimed fraud (kimmer) from doing harm to anyone else?  Or, are you going to just disappear into the darkness and never let anyone know what harm the diet has done to you?  Or are you going to join the fight?  Have you ever wondered what has happened to all the folks that used to post on the KK forums?  Do you think that, just like you, they’ve lost the weight and have moved on?  40,000 members – where are they?  Well, in my opinion, you couldn’t be more wrong.  Only a handful of ex members have come forward to report what the diet has done to them – and only a handful (of ex-kimkins members) are diligently working to stop others from experiencing such pain.  And you want to poo poo that effort?  It’s real easy to sit behind your computer screen and talk about helping folks on the street, in shelters and pantry’s, when you disagree with what someone has blogged about on their own blog.  But tell me this,  have you got your hands dirty helping the unfortunate?  I’d bet big money the answer would be NO!  Because if you had, or if you do, there is no way in hell that you could trash the hard work of these women who are only trying to help those in pain.  There is No Way you could sit there and in one breath speak of helping others, then speak of Kimkins as the saving grace to the dieting world.  Even those that are still members and still following the plan don’t have the balls to walk in to an anti-kimkins blog and blast the haters and then defend the diet.  Not in January 2008 – maybe in Sept 2007 – but NOT NOW!  After all that has been uncovered.  After the deposition where Heidi, herself admits to being a fraud.  After people have come forward with documented proof that the diet has caused health issues?  Class Action Lawsuits?  Local and National media coverage?  Russian Brides? Photshopped Pictures?  Hiding money and income?  1.4 million dollars?   Frozen assets?  Thirteen threads at LCF?   Hundreds of anti-kimkins blogs and sites?  Are you kidding me?  What planet are you on?  How could you, in your right mind, defend such an unhealthy diet?  How could you spit in the faces of those that have been harmed by Heidi Diaz and her diet?  You tell me what makes more sense… listening to you bad mouth the efforts of those that have been harmed by Heidi, just because you lost weight OR continuing the fight against kimkins?  I vote the latter!

Oh, and one more thing…..

Here is some very good reading for you, Anonymous.  Sit down, grab a cup of coffee, a low carb snack and READ!!!!   http://kimkinssurvivors.wordpress.com/

you may just learn something!  Compassion would be nice!

  1. MJR, you GO girl! What a great post! I’m off to link to it in my blog.

    Way to go!

    My blog: Medusa

  2. I dare anonymous to comment here. Although my guess is anonymous first doesn’t have the kahunas to leave a real name and identify who they are (even if it’s a screen name) and b, I think this person just had a weekend off and nothing better to do. Really, come on out if this is what you really think. Oh, and happy MLK day everyone! The truth shall set you free!

  3. Anonymous, how tall are you? I’m curious…

  4. ohyeahbabe Says:

    Thanks so much for your rant. You articulated what many people are feeling.

    Would you mind setting up an rss feed for your blog? I’d love to be notified when you put up a new post!

  5. BRAVO, BRAVO, BRAVO!!!

    You spoke what many of us have been thinking. Good for you!!

    Excellent post!!

  6. Anonymous can do Kimkins w/o any bad results; therefore everyone can. Just like Evil Kneival could perform amazing motorcycle stunts; therefore everybody can, right?(But don’t ask his poor broken body about all the busted bones along the way.) The comparison is self-serving and ridiculous, and offensive in its lack of sympathy for those who WERE harmed.If we’re going to assign blame, no matter how little or how much squirming you and others do, Heidi deserves her fair share for deceiving them into trying her starvation diet with fraudulent pics and claims. Why do you defend a proven liar?

  7. Great post, and I just realized you are not on my
    Kimkins blog roll. You will be shortly 🙂

  8. Who would knowingly defend a known liar? Another liar, that’s who.

  9. 2big4mysize Says:

    thanks for posting this excahnge. too many folk who claim to be doing the Kimkins.com diet created by Kimmer
    are really doing their own low carb plan that they have created from bits of all the plans they know about but they are helping Kimmer sell it as her unsafe plan with their posts about it. I’d love to see the fitday for annonymous and the complete medical workout before and afterwards proving she is healthy should that fitday come anywhere close to the kimkins posted plan with that 20 grams of carbs less then 30 grams of fat and the proteins at 60-90 grams 740 cal diet which was the posted plan ofr those yrs kimmer was selling it before she got caught lying baout her weight loss and the weight loss of those 34 fake success stories.

  10. Get A LIFE, you’re just a bunch of low life self serving vigilantes with an ulterior agenda.

    Dee said it best on Amy’s blog. It must be sad riding on the coattails of others in search of fame or fortune. Even that lawyer is nothing but a an ambulance chaser looking for a silver lining. You people couldn’t afford to retain one on your own, had to find a shyster to do it on contingency, LMAO, you get what you pay for, & got pick of the litter!

    Many forward to the day you all get slapped in the face with a rude awakening, & hoping you find your webbed feet hard to swallow.

    LMAO
    Nice of you to visit my blog. Too bad you felt compelled to burry your comment in a post that was written in January. Many wont see it (unless I decide to update this post) !!!
    But, I guess that’s what sock-puppets do best….HIDE!
    Again, welcome to my blog. Take some time to read all the entries, You May Just Learn A Few Things! Like maybe your own RUDE AWAKENING!
