Smart Women ~ Dumb Choices

I was reading some of the truthful blogs about the scammer diet aka Kimkins this morning and shaking my head. I understand why some members bury their heads in the sand, I really do. If you are insulated in that surreal place where everyone cheers you on and supports you while you struggle with food issues it is so natural to lose perspective. And when you are super hungry every thought becomes a chore.

And when you might venture out to check out the other low carb support sites they can be intimidating and scary. Bulletin Boards take on a high school like flavor of the in crowd, the geeks, the kid no one likes, the bullies, the passive aggressives who pretend to be your friend, and it is so easy and comforting to scurry back to your safe haven.

I danced around a few places when I started my serious journey to health and fitness a few years ago. I lurked at LCF and always felt like an outsider, an intruder that no one would pay attention to. I still feel that way. But the wide range of opinions on things that matter to me in my weight loss journey helped me much more than a narrow perspective tightly controlled and choreographed. I didn't see it then but I do now in hindsight.

I avoid the playground with it's bullies, know it alls, posters with 50,000 posts who rule the roost and unconsciously or deliberately belittle. I focus on that which matters to me. I seek out the words of the intelligent, the kind, the successful at finding their own weight loss path and sticking to it or changing it as needed. The ones who have honestly walked the walk and share honestly.

Honest is not a word that can be attributed to Kimkins or to Heidi Diaz. No matter what tune she sings now. No matter how she is spinning the haters and liars. She is a bad person. She is dangerous.

I know many of the current members have found support in the membership there in spite of who runs the site. I hope they have found sanity in eating and have collected info so they do not find themselves lost without their network like the hundreds of banned.

There have been so many warnings of this but I think it bears repeating. It makes me sad.

OK some new links, thanks to WildAngel!

Kimkins Wins Naked Mole-Rat Award!


That's Heidi Kimberly Diaz, a/k/a "Kimkins" over on the right. (*Note to see pics from original article click here.) (The good-looking one is the naked mole-rat. That's Kimkins up above.) Does the petite and demure Ms. Diaz look like she's lost 200 pounds and kept it off for 5 years? That's one of the many improbable statements that have come out of her mouth (in between bites, no doubt).

The Kimkins diet has prompted a burgeoning horde of consumer protest sites by people who were duped by Diaz's fake before and after pictures, by her alleged serial lies, and by the propaganda that she herself had achieved fantastic results on the program.

I will not recount the whole sordid Kimkins deception here, as there are literally hundreds of blogs, websites, and forum posts which contain all you'd ever want to know and more. This article at is a pretty good one-page expose' -- including claims that the diet is unsafe and destructive.

For reckless disregard of everything and everyone that stands between her and a fast buck, Consumerama hereby force-feeds Kimmer and her company this week's NMRoM Award!
