A PLEA TO NEW KIMKINS COVERGIRL, PATTI...(UPDATED)




Patti, I'm going to make this short and sweet.

By appearing on the main page of Kimkins as a "covergirl" for Kimmer/Heidi Diaz, an admitted liar and fraud, you are endorsing the deadly Kimkins starvation diet.


Photo of Heidi Diaz/Kimmer, in Nov. 2007 (at her deposition in the civil class-action lawsuit) confirming she had lied, once again, about losing any weight on her own deadly Kimkins starvation diet

Patti, I am asking that you read the following posts & watch the videos, and after doing same, reconsider allowing Kimmer to keep your picture on her website:

UPDATE:
Patti, theTRUTH left a message for you in the comment section of this post. I have copied it here just in case you miss it:

Yes, Patti, please reconsider your public endorsement of this fraud. She is using your success as free advertising to further that fraud. You have the right to eat however you want to. It is your health and your body. However, allowing Heidi to use your images and personal story to make more money from more unsuspecting, desperate dieters who don't know the history and lies of Heidi (as you must), crosses the line of innocent victim of a scam artist, and ventures into the realm of enabler or even accomplice. The lawsuit is very real, and there are huge numbers of real people who have been and continue to be taken by this scam artist.

One more note. I saw in your bio that you lost a great deal using Atkins (a safe, sensible, controlled carb way of eating) but had problems keeping it off. You may want to reserve your public endorsement of kimkins until after you have had a chance to see if you can maintain the kimkins losses without developing a long term eating disorder. If you are eating the calorie levels suggested by Heidi's plan, your metabolism is likely damaged and you will find maintenance nearly impossible, and suffer who knows what other kinds of health problems. Others have been down this path before you, and it isn't pretty. Medusa is giving you a chance here to reach out and do some research before it is too late. Take that opportunity, for your own sake. You do not want to be associated with this woman.

Thanks so much, Truth, for your excellent comment.

I have added your comment to my original post.

theTRUTH said...

I hope she responds. I hate going after people before I know where they stand. I don't like to assume that EVERYONE already knows about the scam and the dangers of this diet. I don't see how it is possible for her to be doing the diet over the period that she has and not know, but it doesn't hurt to give her a chance to talk to us.

Medusa said...

Word, Truth.

**Medusa is giving you a chance here to reach out and do some research before it is too late. Take that opportunity, for your own sake.**

Is that a THREAT????

**You do not want to be associated with this woman.**

No, you mean YOU do not want her associated with this woman!

Quit trying to exploit people in order to get your way. You people are nothing more than extortionist.

Your aggressive but frivolous tactics give new meaning to the word.

Think I'll join KimKins Diet simply because of all the controversy, you people are doing great free promotional & PR work for the website, & now thanks to the ducks joining is easier than ever.

Then I think I'll start blogging & quoting the duck brigade, might be fun to see yourselves as perceived from the general publics eye.

Keep up the great work!

theTRUTH said...

And here I just thought we were talking to ourselves, and out pops an anonymous troll. Cute.

di-spotz said...

I'm still trying to figure out how anonymous up there qualifies as "the general public".

Medusa said...

di-spotz, I don't think you could classify Gary as the "general public."

Hi, Gary ::wave:: So nice of you to have popped by and left such an erudite comment.

theTRUTH said...

Gary sez: "I am the Great Cornholio! Are you threatening me? I need TP."
Bunghole.

Sue said...

I haven't checked out Kimkins for a while - when did the price go up to $79.95?? What a rip off!!
Patti - congratulations on the weight loss - I'm hoping you did it by eating more fat than the Kimkins diet allows.

Nancy Ellyn said...

Great post, girlfriend! Looks like you stirred the pot up with anonymous! xoo

Medusa said...

LOL, Nancy Ellyn :^)

Actually, "anonymous" is Gary Fontaine from Kimkins. Ain't he speshul?

Prudentia said...

Hey, Truth, why don't you tell old Gary what you really think? LOL

Gary, I'm so disappointed. I really thought you were a decent guy from reading your posts over at the Kimpound. How wrong can a person be ....

Anonymous said...

Im all for adults making choices and doing Kimkins,(Well, not really for it,but..) if they know the fraud behind it, I mean what can u do, except keep trying. But to let Kimmer use your images, does make you accountable.

Mayberryfan said...

Medusa,

If the Ducks tactics are so frivolous, wonder why Gary gets his boxers in such a knot over them?

Curious, isn't it??

2BIG said...

great message for Patti I truely hope she sees this and checks it out. Being inside the Kimpound and responding to Kimmer's passionate request for success stories might just lead to more "flower picking" espicailly if they read the commnets and wonder why Admin Gary is over here hiding and posting such silly lies.

Medusa said...

Mayberry, Gary's reactions to the Ducks are most unusual. What I find even more curious is his continued association and defence of Heidi. He's one strange cat.

Medusa said...

2Big, I share your hope about Patti.

I hope she see's the light sooner rather than later.
