How to Spread the Truth About the Kimkins Diet Controversy

A quick Google search for Kimkins, Kimkins diet, or Kimkins weight loss is all it takes to see how pervasive the Kimkins.com marketing machine is. It’s hard for low carb newbies and other dieters to make an informed decision if they don’t know about the raging controversy surrounding Kimkins and its elusive self-appointed guru, Kimmer.

You can help change this! Here are some things you can do to make sure that Internet searchers get to read more than just promotional affiliate advertising about the Kimkins diet:

  1. Using the phrases Kimkins, Kimkins diet or Kimkins weight loss, link from your own websites and blogs, as well as message boards or other social websites, to URLs that contain information about the controversy such as:

    By the way, thank you for this ongoing series!

    Getting the word out is just one thing we can all do to educate a public who doesn’t want to have to worry about whether licking a green bean is going to cause them to grow an extra butt cheek.

    Viva la revolution!

    Hello :)

    I totally agree with getting this out there…

    You might be interested in a post I did last month on my blog, basically I out lined her plans how they are on her site, plus there was some discussion in the comments section. I am also planning to post some research on VLCD’s soon: http://pinchof.blogspot.com/2007/06/okay-some-kimkins-stuff.html

    cheers

    Sherrie

  7. Curious Says:

    Sherrie,

    I will look forward to peeking at your blog. I DO think VLCD’s are extremely dangerous and look forward to your article.

    :) I can’t imagine anyone recommending anybody to eat less than 800 calories a day..What kind of person with a conscience would do that?
    I just can’t understand it.

  11. JimmySucks Says:

    Please try to keep momentum with this expose!!!

    Please post something more, some more information, details, something!!!

  12. Kimmerexia Says:

    For all his impassioned pleas to want to “end the nastiness” with the controversies swirling around Kimkins and Kimmer, all the while referring to anyone seeking the truth as “Kimkins Haters”, he’s handing us more links on his own blog!

    I just read at the Kimkins board Jimmy proclaims in his journal that he is killing the people questioning Kimmers with kindness. Do you hear that? The Christian is killing people with kindness. How good of him. I’m sure Jesus is smiling right now.

    For the record, the definition of kindness has morphed into histrionics, fallacious appeals to emotion, and kindness is definitely editing his blog comments to say things people didn’t say. Because that’s kindness, and Jimmy is all over that action. Like pummelling baby seals with fists but not clubs. That kind of kindness.

    Thanks, Jimmy, for killing people with that voodoo that you do. I can see that it is certainly working. Against you, but them’s the breaks.

    Mama, Don’t let your babies grow up to be anorexics

    Please add kimkinssurvivors.wordpress.com to the list, Martin. It’s a place for all victims of this dangerous diet to tell their story and help save others from going down that path.

  16. Kimmerexia Says:

    There’s an excellent new article on kimkinssucks.blogspot.com warning about the real implications of new security tracking software and cookies that are being hastily implemented at kimkins.com.

  17. GillianIvy Says:

    I’ve written a blog entry concerning Kimkins. My cousin Deni is one of the published dieters. She’s on their main page right now. I’ve informed her about the health risks involved with this diet and hope that she makes an informed decision. I know how much of a life changing experience she has had, having lost 60-70lbs on this diet. She’s been an influence to many people to start this diet. My older sister and mother are now on it too. Fortunately, I scour the internet for every detail good and bad about things before I do them. Please share my blog: Truth in Labeling. Thanks for sharing this information with me and my family.
