Believing it to be true that Kimkins.com is promoting medically unsound and potentially life-threatening diet plans in which many followers have complained of one or more of the following:

Dizziness
Nausea
Muscle fatigue or weakness
Heartbeat palpitations
Moderate to severe hair loss
Bone and joint pain
Mental changes - irritability, forgetfulness, confusion
Bowel complications/symptoms of laxative abuse

And that the founder of Kimkins, known as Kimmer ;

is not certified or licensed in any way to dispense nutritional and medical advice
claims to have lost 198 lbs. but has never provided solid evidence of such loss, having refused to be interviewed in person
has advised the daily use of laxatives extended beyond products warnings
has pushed diet followers to stay as low in calories as possible, even as low as 0-300 calories a day
has used questionable marketing techniques to generate membership revenues by:

-- displaying false before/after testimonials
-- using viral marketing techniques such as the willful misplanting that young celebrities have followed the plan in order to target a younger demographic, including pre-teens
-- has allowed affiliates to spam many valid forums with misleading information
-- advertising the acquisition of an e-book as included in the membership fee, which she never produced

We, the undersigned hereby request that this website, Kimkins.com and its founder, Kimmer be properly investigated in an expedient manner so as to prevent harm from coming to more individuals who might try these plans.
