Actually, this is a painting done by my son. You can enlarge it by clicking on the painting. I couldn't resist posting it because of its uncanny resemblance to The Kimmer.
And to update you on recent news, Heidi Diaz/Kimmer and her deadly Kimkins diet continue to make headlines:
"Online Weight Loss Scams
Scams regarding weight loss on the Internet is everywhere. One of the reasons why i created this page, was weight loss scams. I found it shocking to see page after page selling some miracle e-book or some super diet pills.
In my experience:
"there is no super pill or diet that will cure you of obesity, - yet!
Another example is KimKins, a huge web site with lots of members. The site was started in 2000, and in the media gotten very bad reviews. KimKins are selling life time membership for $60, and I have to agree with this review; If it's too good to be true, it probably is..."
"Consumer or Financial Fraud in the News...
OCT-20-07: Class action status is being sought in a lawsuit filed by 11 former members of Kimkins Diet Web Site. The plaintiffs allege that Kimkins founder Heidi "Kimmer" Diaz misrepresented the diet plan through false advertising, fraud, and unjust enrichment. [CALORIE LAB: CONSUMER FRAUD]"

Kimkins Diet: Back in the News, Not Likely to Be Forgotten
by Jack Ryan
There has been quite a lot of talk about the Kimkins diet of late. And not just because New Year's Resolutions are forcing people to lose weight. What started out as a Low Carb-Hybrid diet, has been called a scam.
The diet is potentially dangerous and is more similar to a starvation diet. The lack of essential nutrients, fatty acids, and fiber can cause significant health problems.
Heidi Diaz, the diet founder, still maintains that Kimkins works, and is still taking money from people.
Whether or not anyone knew about the Kimkins lies in the beginning, it appears that for many people, it simply doesn't matter if Kimkins works, or if the founder is honest. If it really did, there wouldn't be any subscribers on the site currently. Then again, they could be fake profiles, fake users with stolen photos from other places on the web as well."
(all bolding mine)
Nice to see that Heidi Diaz/Kimmer and her Kimkins starvation diet are receiving such excellent press.
