Damage Control


From Inside Kimkins, Kimmer (aka Heidi Diaz, or Kimberly Drake, or whomever she is today) begins to attempt to do some damage control, after news of her bankruptcy was revealed.



A quick note from legal counsel:

“Kimkins has filed for protection under Chapter 11 of the bankruptcy
code. Chapter 11 is a rule which permits reasonable reorganization of
debts under the bankruptcy laws of the United States. Chapter 11
bankruptcy is available to any business, whether organized as a
corporation or sole proprietorship, and to individuals.

This will allow Kimkins, as a viable business, to continue to service
its customers while paying debts under a reorganization plan. Moreover,
it will allow us to better address certain matters pending in the civil
courts. The process is a public proceeding and aimed solely at
protecting the interest of Kimkins and our members.”

Due to litigation over the past year we have a couple major debts and
this will help restructure those. This will not affect our day to day
operations. Prior to this news Kimkins had already been planning a
revamp of the website (appearance and software). Everything will be the
same but better — better navigation, more features, easier to use and
understand. Those plans have been in the works for several months.

We’re a big website (bigger than what you see) and it’s a big project!
I’ve seen prototypes of the new format — it’s lovely! We’re still
months away from being ready … naturally. I’m an instant gratification
person and months are not instant! Darn!

When it’s ready for testing we’ll be seeking volunteers to poke it and
find the boo boos before we switch everybody over.

Your membership will stay exactly the same — only the website will look
different. Some of you are old timers and remember we’ve had 4-5
previous “looks” since we started Kimkins in April 2006!


What she doesn’t tell them in this note  is that she has already started a NEW diet site, which is no longer low carb.  It appears to still be low calorie and low fat.  It also appears to be using a name that is already trademarked to another company.


Uncharted Waters ~ Kimkins Maintenance

Since Heidi’s “after” pictures reveal that she is not any thinner than her “before” pictures, what does that say about the Kimkins Maintenance Plan?

It is apparent that Heidi never devised a workable Kimkins Maintenance Plan because she never actually had to try to maintain her goal weight due to the simple fact that she’s never actually attained the 118 lb. weight that she professed to have maintained for 5+ years.

With no Kimkins Support for those who have reached their weight loss goals, unfortunately these folks more or less just cast adrift.

How are folks who have followed Kimkins doing on Maintenance if there is no Kimkins Maintenance Plan to follow?

 What Heidi claimed that she was eating on maintenance was posted on LCF in April of 2006:

 I tend to eat pretty much the same stuff every day. Even when we go out to eat I’ll be looking for a non-sauce protein, side veggie (no sauce) and a large salad.Breakfast: None or 1 egg omelette w/ veggies & ham
Snack: Yogurt (100 cal Dannon) and/or fruit
Lunch: Green salad w/ grilled chicken (or something similar)
Snack: Fruit (banana, pear, grapes or ?)
Dinner: Lean protein, 2-3 veggies (occasional potato or corn)
Once in a while a small dessert, but sweets are a problem area for me so I tend to not keep them in the house. Treats I bake for my foster sons are in a size that has no leftovers, LOL!I don’t use Fitday for myself very often, but when I do check I’m running around 1200-1400 calories, 70-100 carbs. This seems right for 118 lbs and a non-exerciser.Here’s what Christin says about Kimkins Maintenance:

Kimkins has NO maintenance program. The guidelines that were provided at one point in time were actually written by me, and were removed very quickly after I left the program. I am not a dietician or physician, so I have no doubt that even the guidelines that I was lead to believe were appropriate were lacking in nutritional value. Most of my friends and acquaintances who have since come off of the Kimkins program and resumed eating “normally” have either completely halted their weight loss efforts, or put back on the majority of the weight that they initially lost. Through our discussions we all agree that it would have behooved us to have lost the weight that we did utilizing a program that would not have set us up for such heartache.

With no real guidelines to follow, these Kimkins folks have had to fend for themselves with no help from their leader (who is unable to lead by example in this instance), and a great many of them have been encountering some major difficulties.

Duck Detectives

Special Agents unleash the Duck Detectives on the Kimkins Case.

It’s a new year, but an old scam! Special Agents unleash the Duck Detectives to head up the Kimkins Case!

Some folks have questioned the reasoning behind so many “duck” avatars on LCF. This might help explain things a bit.

I’m naturally suspicious of anyone with a “duck” avatar.

   So the Kimkins Detectives happily adopted the Duck persona 

at Heidi’s very OWN suggestion!

 Personally, wouldn’t you prefer to be called a “Duck Detective” rather than a Hater?  Not that I don’t hate what she’s doing to people, but still.

Say No to Kimkins!



A Disaster Waiting To Happen

Unfortunately, as is the case with many new adventures, the maiden voyage of the HMS Kimtanic was destined from the beginning to be a disaster waiting to happen.

All of the necessary ingredients were easily assembled by the captain of this doomed vessel. A diet fraught with dangerous components, mixed generously with untruths and fabrications, stirred gently and plastered all over the Internet, was very tempting bait for the unsuspecting, well intentioned victims.

As the ship left port, a few whispered questions were shared amongst the passengers about the true identity of their captain.  Folks on either side of the ocean expressed their concerns with each other, anxious over the safety of all those aboard the HMS Kimtanic.  But what could be done to save the innocent souls on board?

Battling Kimkins, like battling a forest fire, requires determination and skill: Enter the DUCK Detectives.
