Why pay when there are FREE diet support sites

I have been thinking about how a site that requires a “registration fee” or a “lifetime membership fee” would get people signing up for their “service.” Obviously they need to offer something that the FREE sites do not have. As they don’t, I have to assume that the only customers they get are people that […]


$79.95 to starve at Kimkins in 2008

The membership fee just increased. Making up for less people signing up? Copying the Magic Chicken Diet price? One starvation diet is just as good as another, right? Remember, there are many, many FREE sites that offer better support and better diets than Kimkins! Try Active Lowcarber Forum (ALC) or Low Carb Friends (LCF). Both […]


Tippy denies supporting Kimmer, but still thinks Kimkins is great

Obviously, Kimmer’s fraudulent marketing and unethical business methods with bannings were of no concern to Tippy. She […]

Magic Diet

I earlier made a post about the Magic Chicken Diet using the Day 1 menu. I thought I would revisit the subject, now choosing a day from the 2nd week’s “modified” sample menu. While I don’t understand why anyone would use canned chicken for anything, this is what was recommended in the menu. That day, […]
