What Can I DO To Help?

I hear that alot.

I get it in private messages or emails, I see it on message boards.

What can YOU do to help?  Lots of things.

IF you were a “paying” victim of the Kimkins Diet Scam, you can sign up for the Kimkins Class Action Lawsuit, and you can share your story with the Kimkins Survivors blog.

IF you followed the diet, but didn’t pay to join the Kimkins.com website, you can still share your story with the folks at the Kimkins Survivors blog.  The more stories shared, the better chance we have of warning folks from trying this at home.

So, you never joined the site and you never followed the diet, but you still want to know what you can do to help?  Lots of things.

Check out the list on the Take Action Now page.  There are lots of suggestions for things to do to help there.  Print off the list, and maybe try tackling one or two items a day, depending on the free time you have available.  Start with Signing the Petition, be sure to file a Ripoff Report and work your way all the way down to Troubleshooter.com.  Each individual link will help.  Each one you complete will be another great contribution to the cause.

“Ok”, you say, “I’ll work on that list, a little at a time.  Is there anything ELSE I can do to help?”  

Absolutely!

Do you blog?  If so, blog a little about your feelings about Kimkins.  Blog a little about warning folks to stay away from Kimkins.  Consider joining the Say “NO” to Kimkins Web Ring.

If you don’t blog, have you ever wanted to?   WordPress.com makes it very easy to get started.  Give it some thought.  A blog is an excellent way to speak your mind, share your views, communicate to the world, to encourage folks to Say NO to Kimkins.

Be sure to visit the anti-kk blogs and support the bloggers by leaving comments on their blogs, and maybe share your favorite anti-kk links with them.

 Do you have a MySpace page?  If so, be sure to include some links on your page to warn folks away from Kimkins.  MySpace is an area very full of our teens, and we really should be sure that they are aware of the Dangers of Kimkins.

 Do you post in forums, on message boards, with email groups, etc?  Consider adding your favorite anti-kk links to your signature, to help spread the word.

We have seen KTLA, FOX’s The Morning Show, and KVUE spotlight the Kimkins Scam, but what about YOUR local news?  Consider checking out your local news stations’ websites.  See if they have a link to report news, or a tip line.  Share some Kimkins information and links with them, and perhaps they will pick up the story.  Diets are big news during the first of the year, with New Year’s Resolutions and all.

Every thing we DO to help is a contribution to the cause.  It doesn’t have to be anything big; an email here, a link shared there, a comment posted on a blog, some words of encouragement along the way, it ALL  helps.

There is strength in numbers.

Together we CAN make a difference.

Thank you EVERYONE!  Your contributions count!

If you have suggestions or more ideas for how to help, please be sure to post them in the comments section below.

  1. Thanks for the great list! I hope people take you up on it. I really worry about people choosing Kimkins for their new years resolutions. It’s a dangerous diet, founded in fraud.

    Stop the fraud! If you were a member of Kimkins, join the Kimkins diet lawsuit! Here is how to join the Kimkins lawsuit. It’s easy!

  2. Digg, Technorati, Stumble, del.icio.us—everything you see around the net about from the anti-KK people.

    You do have to join these sites to submit—but it is really worth it.

  3. Absolutely..This is the TRUTH..Don’t do Kimkins!!! We all want to lose weight in the new year, but pick a healthy plan that won’t send you to the emergency room with heart problems or fainting or dizziness!!!!

  4. Have you made a New Year’s resolution to lose weight? Do NOT do Kimkins. Do NOT join Kimkins! Do NOT join ANY site that charges you for it. Google “low carb discussion board” and you will get hits to a lot of FREE sites where you can get the same information and support that you get on the boards you have to pay to post on.

  5. Fantastic post! Thanks so much for getting the word out about the Kimkins starvation diet. There are so many sites and boards that offer FREE DIET SUPPORT, like Low Carb Friends, to name just one.

    With bloggers like you spreading the word about the scam still being perpetrated by Heidi Diaz/Kimmer and her Kimkins diet, those people who are looking to lose weight quickly in the New Year will avoid the Kimkins diet like the plague it truly is.

  6. Thanks you for informing those surfing the internet in 2008, that the answers they are looking for are not going to be found at Kimkins.com or doing any diet that requires one to use very low calories and low fat as the method of weight control.
    Wishing you the best in the New Year of 2008.

  7. What a wonderful and instructive blog on how people can help get the word out and take actions against the scam diet known as kimkins. Stay clear of ANY VLCD on the internet. VLCDs can only be managed with ongoing doctor supervision and nutrient supplementation. There are many healthy low carb diet plans — Protein Power, Atkins, South Beach just to name a few. And you shouldn’t have to pay $$$ when lowcarb info is out there for FREE.

  8. Friends don’t let friends do Kimkins! Remember that cover girl on the WW Mag? Well, she learned the hard way about Kimkins and it’s dangers!! Read her blog and decide for yourself.

  13. […] What Can I DO to Help? […]

  14. […] next question for many may be what can I do to get help or what can I do to help? You can start by researching information and get reach out to get help at the websites listed […]

  15. […]               Please folk don’t give up on this  battle because you feel other folk are not fighting it the way you want them too. I know you are weary, but just think how much more weary Kimmer is cause in numbers we have strength and are hitting Kimmer hard all over. As Kimmer said in her legal papers filed just this week Kimmer couldn’t do the big Jan advertising campaign cause Kimmer ’s kimkins.com funds were locked up by the lawsuit. Score one for our side. Now to keep the Kimmer funds locked up we and I mean everyone who isn’t on Kimmer ’s side needs to join the lawsuit if they bought a membership on kimkins.com  from Kimmer because if it gets certified class action, which it hasn’t yet, then there is reason for the judge to keep those funds locked up to pay off the whole class. Without class status there will be no legal reason for the Judge to keep all Kimmer ’s money tied up to pay the class and with those millions Kimmer will be able to do anything she wants in her new scheme until once again she is outed.  If you are wondering what you can do to help here is a great place to start What Can I DO To Help? « Say “NO” to Kimkins […]

  16. Have you ever considered about including a little bit more than just your articles?

    I mean, what you say is fundamental and all. However imagine
    if you added some great visuals or videos to give your posts more,
    “pop”! Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site could undeniably be one of the best in its niche.
    Terrific blog!

  17. Really when someone doesn’t be aware of afterward its up to other viewers that they will help, so here it occurs.

  18. Unquestionably imagine that that you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest factor to have in mind of.

    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while other people think about concerns that they
    just do not recognise about. You controlled to hit the
    nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having
    side-effects , folks could take a signal. Will
    likely be back to get more. Thank you
