Things To Do With $60 Instead of Buying a Kimkins Membership

What will $60 buy you at Kimkins.com? Anorexia, starvation, hair loss, dizziness, nausea, muscle loss, and thyroid destruction. Oh, and some snarkiness, disrespect and condescension by the 300+ pound diet guru named Heidi Diaz aka Kimmer.

Or, you can take that same $60 and...

...buy some FOOD! Some healthy low carb choices like lean turkey, 100% whole wheat bread, veggies, berries, plain whole milk yogurt with your choice of SF Davinci syrups, well, you get the picture!

...get a DDR video game and dance pad and have a great time dancing - you won't even know you're really working out!

...pick up a new pair of GOOD walking shoes, not the cheapie sale ones that tear up after a few miles, but a GOOD pair with gel insoles and feel like you're walking on clouds.

...test drive a new mp3 player - or toss that walkman and get your very first one! These have dropped so drastically in price that you can get a 1 gig player for under $40 then use the other $20 at iTunes for some music, or borrow from all of your friends that bought one way before you did, lol. Or, you could hit up some of those Russian websites that sell downloads for .10 each because they have different copyright laws than the US and its totally legal, but you didn't hear that from ME! I'm not responsible for what you search and find in Google when you type in Russian mp3 downloads.

...take a friend or two to the zoo for the day. That's a workout in itself just spending the day walking around looking at the animals, especially if their cages are miles apart like they are at most zoos! By the time you've seen three animals, you're out of breath! Plus admission is like a week's worth of gas, so call up a couple of folks, pack a lunch with plenty of water bottles, and take off for the day.

...buy some of the latest diet books - even though I'm mostly low carb, I like to pick and choose components from other diets and work them into my way of life. It's always fun to read what else is out there and see how it can apply to me, or if it just makes me laugh until I snort Diet Rite through my nose. Some good ones new to the market are, No Excuses! Fitness Workout by Celebrity Fit Club's Harvey Walden (he's probably much less scary in a book), The Best Life Diet, by Bob Greene (Oprah's trainer), and Making the Cut: The 30-Day Diet and Fitness Plan for the Strongest, Sexiest You, by The Biggest Loser's Jillian Michaels.

...indulge in some Chocoperfection bars! $60 will get you about 24 bars of pure heaven. Melt it, pour it over some low carb ice cream or mix it in some plain yogurt for a chocolate treat, or do like me, I eat squares of it in one hand with almonds in the other.

...do the obvious - donate it to charity! I mean, if you've got $60 to throw away because you really don't need it - I like to give to charities where I really see what is being done with the money. Around Christmas, many local churches will be putting together holiday boxes, or you can go to a department store and buy at least two good kid's winter coats and drop them off at a Coats for Kids donation spot, or your company may be adopting a family. Either way, you will feel good about that $60, unlike having Heidi lock out your access to her stinky little site because you asked her if she had any recent pictures.

Those are just a few ideas off the top of my head, but I'm sure you can think of more things to do with that money other than give it a scam artist!

The Metamorphosis of the Kimkins Diet Scam

When you go to www.Kimkins.com, you will no longer see the "Lady in Red" or Kimmer bragging about how she created Kimkins and lost 198 lbs. in 11 months. So, if it's not on the website, who can prove she ever said it?

Just because you take something off your website, that doesn't completely erase it.

Check this out!

Imagine that?! ;)

Check out how the website looked in July of 2006:

http://web.archive.org/web/20060702010646/http://www.kimkins.com/

Notice she claims to have lost 160 lbs. in just 7 months? And that she went from 318 to 118 in less than a year?

Back in the day, Kimkins was just $14.95.
