Well, well, well...I have a juicy little update on my earlier blog post which you'll find here:


Round 1 went to Heidi Diaz/Kimmer in the Kimmer v. Tippy Toes brawl, but now Tippy Toes (Jeannie Baitinger) has opened Round 2 with a right hook.

She done served somebody, yessiree...

I believe I have made an error as to the author of the “Kimmer” post. I believe the above post was from Heidi Diaz… As a result I no longer will allow her to use my success story or pictures. This Cease and desist letter has been sent to as well as a copy to John Teidt. A hard copy will follow.

Re: Cease and desist demand

Dear Sir/Madam:

This letter serves as notice to cease and desist using the name of Jeannie Baitinger, success story, and any image of Jeannie Baitinger, for advertising, marketing and selling of the program and website. Ms. Baitinger is convinced the owner and operator of AKA Heidi Diaz and any assigns obtained the release fraudulently, under false pretenses, now subject to criminal and civil fraud allegations. Therefore, it is null and void. This cease and desist applies (but is not limited to) the following:

Success story rotation including Jeannie Baitinger
Front page images or write ups of Jeannie Baitinger
Affiliate links obtaining images of Jeannie Baitinger
Any and all use of Jeannie Baitinger’s name, image, or story in promotion of or anything related to

This will serve as your legal notice to cease and desist all further actions described above.

Further usage of Jeannie Baitinger’s images or name may be subject to inclusion within a civil class action lawsuit. "

I'll keep you updated on who lands the next punch.

In the meantime, enjoy Tippy Toe's favorite song by the incomparable Bob Dylan:

It's nice to see that TT is finally understanding how dangerious Kimmker can be and is trying to sever all ties. is a very dangerious diet that promotes Eating Disorders (EDs), hair loss and other health problems in people who follow it. This diet was started by a lady they call Kimmer who never lost the weight on her own diet let alone any other. Kimmer’s real name is Heidi Kimberly Diaz and she has set up a site for the specific reason to Scam and take money from people, NOT help them lose weight. Friends don’t let friends do Kimkins!!

I wish I never heard about and Kimmer. I lost 60 % of my hair, had dizzy spells, heart palpitations, messed up menstrual cycles, became intolerant to cold, anorexia induced anxiety problems, and
developed an eating disorder.. also messed up my metabolism and made the dreaded "regain" harder to fight than ever before. Stay away from!

Kat, thanks for your comment!

And deni...

Superb comment...from the heart.
Thanks so much for posting.

You have been through so much as a result of the Kimkins starvation diet.

It is so important, especially at this time of year, to warn people desperate to lose weight of the dangers of signing up with any low-fat/low-calorie/low-carb diet plan.

There is a lot of money to be made on the Web these days by scammers like Heidi Diaz/Kimmer, who have NO medical training, hawking these half-brained diets.

Thanks for raising the red flag about the deadly Kimkins diet and its fraudulent founder Heidi Diaz/Kimmer.

Thanks, 2big, for commenting!

Re your question about Kimkins success stories...

Some, who have never done the Kimkins diet, may look at pictures of people who have lost weight doing the Kimkins starvation diet and think those dieters are "Kimkins success stories," but unfortunately are unaware of the terrible health consequences of this deadly diet.

Take a look at deni's post in the comments here and you will see what happened to her health as a result of following the Kimkins diet.

In the end, there are NO success stories, unless you count ruining your health and developing an eating disorder a "success."

Thanks, 2big, for raising this important question.
