NEWS FLASH !!! RE-AIRING TODAY OF FOX-TV’s “Morning Show with Mike and Juliet” featuring the KIMKINS DIET SCAM !!!

FOX-TV’s “Morning Show with Mike and Juliet," re-aired their feature on the Kimkins Diet Scam this morning (December 31, 2007).

And this is the byline for the show:

"One woman lost 100 pounds and that’s not all — you won’t believe what happened next! M&J take you inside the dangerous Kimkins diet that some call 'Atkins meets anorexia.'"

Let's hope the show was updated, advising viewers that Jeannie Baitinger (aka Tippy Toes) has since left Kimkins, and after being granted immunity, is now providing information to John Tiedt, the lawyer for the Plaintiffs in the class-action suit against Heidi Diaz/Kimmer.

The "Tim Worstall Tabloid Edition" says:

November 12, 2007
Kimkins, or the Kimkins diet has been shown up to be just another scam on the unsuspecting.

Heidi "Kimmer" Diaz, the founder of the Kimkin's diet - a low carb, low calorie diet - is schedule to appear in a Southern California court on Monday, November 12th, 2007. 11 former users of her Kimkins diet program filed a complaint against her one week ago, claiming fraud, false advertising, and unjust enrichment.
The Kimkin's scandal began when Woman's World, a popular women's magazine featured an article on the Kimkin's diet.

Ms Diaz, who was claiming to have lost 198 pounds in 11 months using her diet plan, refused to meet with the magazine in person, instead corresponding through email. She went so far as to send the magazine before and after pictures that looked nothing alike, which makes sense when people found out that the before pictures were Ms. Diaz, however the after pictures were taken from a Russian 'mail-order' bride web site.

The kimkins diet advised eating just 500 calories a day. That less than concentration camp victims were getting:

Kimkins diet followers reported hair loss, menstrual cessation, irregualr heartbeat, fainting spells, and liver damage from the starvation diet scam.

No damn wonder! Let's hope she's jailed where she can get a decent diet!

Kimmer thinks this will bring in more $$$ to her site. Hope she's wrong. I can't imagine watching that segment and coming away thinking this diet is safe and effective. But, I guess some will. All we can do is keep warning folks.
And asking those that have been scammed to join the Kimkins Lawsuit

You've got to wonder how it makes Jeannie feel to see herself on television over and over again tap dancing for Heidi. That Heidi is, if nothing else, clever. She gets other people to put their own face on the lies so she comes out looking clean. As Mike said, she should have been there to speak for herself. But wait! She was in deposition that day. How convenient. Wasn't it Heidi who rescheduled the deposition for that day? It almost makes me feel sorry for Jeannie. On second thought, nah! People make their own choices.

Happy 2008 All...Don't become a stastic of the Kimkins Diet Scam in 2008. I have faith in people and I know that there are a lot of people out there that will do the research and find the horrors of the Kimkins diet, the bannings of "lifetime" members for no reason other than to take their money from them, the no feedback from Kimmer herself on the site as promised and the dangers of the starvation diet that Kimmer (Heidi K. Diaz), who never even lost the weight herself, promotes. Ban Kimkins in 2008 and find a free and safe diet site to support your weight loss efforts in 2008. The year you will succeed WITHOUT Kimkins starvation diet!

WOW! The M&J show really gets it, if they're re-airing this episode again so soon. I think it's pretty significant that they're airing it for the third time, and at the new year when people are grasping desperately for a way to get their weight down. I wish they'd do an actual follow-up. Maybe that'll come when there is more court action.
