Kimkins – Magic Chicken Diet

Posted in kimkins with tags , , , , , , , on March 12, 2008 by kimkinscam


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.


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
  • 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 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??
