AmyB to Heidi Diaz: Stop Scamming People With Kimkins

Filed under: In The News — @ March 24, 2008

The beautiful and articulate AmyB shares her painful Kimkins story

In Episode 123 of “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore”, I’m happy to share with you an exclusive interview with someone who has been at the center of the ongoing Kimkins diet controversy over the past six months since the founder of that company has been outed as a morbidly obese scam artist named Heidi Diaz who has bilked tens of thousands of people with her devious and dangerous dietary advice. Her name is AmyB and she knows all too well about the manipulation that Diaz can inflict on people and was a personal victim of such while she was a member at the Kimkins site. Hear AmyB speak candidly about how she was taken advantage of by “Kimmer” and why she is now one of the most outspoken critics of Kimkins today.

It’s amazing to hear AmyB talk about Kimkins and Heidi Diaz as she does now with all the innocence and honesty of the entire situation. Even as everyone else was becoming privy to the truth about this increasingly obvious scam (myself included!), she stayed for months afterwards. It wasn’t about Heidi, but the people she grew so close to at the Kimkins site that kept her there. Now she’s reaching out to them to rescue them from the snares of a delusional woman who is under investigation for fraud. AmyB’s message to anyone still at Kimkins: GET OUT NOW!!!

Whether you are engaged in the whole Kimkins debacle or not, what did you think about AmyB’s comments? Do you think her concerns about the impact this diet had on her health got her banned by Heidi? Or was it something else that drove this decision by Diaz to suddenly happen? Chat about it and tell us what you think in the show notes section of Episode 123.

Special thanks to Elle from “Grilled Cheese with Pickles” for providing a full transcript of the podcast interview I conducted with AmyB. She volunteered to do that and I am very grateful for her service. You can access this transcript right now by clicking here.

Be sure to tune in again on Thursday when I’ll be sharing another interview with a fellow health and weight loss motivator named Nicki Anderson from Reality Fitness who I have talked about before. Nicki’s perspective has been radically changed after reading Life Without Bread and Good Calories, Bad Calories over the past year. You’re gonna LOVE what she has to share as we enjoyed “meeting” each other during this incredible interview. DON’T MISS IT!!! And thanks so much for listening to “The Livin’ La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore.”
