Kimkins diet is on the market since 2007. The diet, which is a low carbs, low calories and low protein, is seen by many to be nothing but anorexia in disguise.
Kimkins demands a near starvation so members do not eat more than 500 calories a day, or 20 carbs, skipping out on as many fatty amino acids and fibers as possible.
This diet can end up turning the body against itself to gain the necessary proteins, so body tissue and muscle may be lost instead of the fat.
Now, Heidi “Kimmer” Diaz, the founder of the Kimkin’s diet is schedule to appear in a Southern California court on Monday, November 12th, 2007. Some former users of her Kimkins diet program filed a complaint against her, claiming fraud, false advertising, and unjust enrichment.
This scandal began when Woman’s World, a popular women’s magazine featured an article on the Kimkin’s diet.
