Dedicated to exposing the truth behind a dangerous starvation diet and the scammer who founded it

If you have been scammed by Kimmer or if you have information which would pertain the lawsuit against her, please visit the Kimkins Class Action Lawsuit site and contact the site owner for help. The contact details may be found here.

Welcome to Kimmerpedia, a wiki repository for information about the dangerous starvation diet Kimkins and its founder, Heidi K. Diaz aka Kimmer. Heidi/Kimmer is a woman who for many years claimed to have lost 198 lbs by subsisting on a very low calorie diet.

Kimmer, a self-proclaimed diet success story!

She eventually started her own for-pay website to sell this diet, and even managed to get coverage in a national magazine. This netted her thousands and thousands of new subscribers and earned her at least two million dollars.

But it was all based on a lie.

  • Heidi/Kimmer never lost the weight she said she did.
  • She used pictures stolen from other websites to falsely advertise her own weight loss (i.e. the Lady in the Lawn Chair) and to create fake 'success stories' for her website.
  • She lied about being a foster mother.
  • She also lied about her skin care and hair care tips.

Basically, Heidi/Kimmer told a whole bunch of lies and got rich doing so.

But her Kimpire is crashing down around her. A class-action lawsuit has been filed against her, and her assets have been frozen. A normal person with the slightest shred of a conscience would have given up by now and crawled back under the rock from whence she came. But not Heidi/Kimmer.

Just send me $79.95 and
I'll show you how to look like this!

Her site is up, it's active, and she continues to try and recruit new members for her dangerous starvation diet, all in the name of making a profit. Unfortunately for her, there are many, many people out there dedicated to ensuring she doesn't get away with it.

Anyone is welcome to join and contribute. There are just a few ground rules:

1.) No posting of the physical addresses of individuals, including Heidi's. Business addresses and addresses for reporting her fraud are okay.

2.) Please do not use full names, with the exception of Heidi K. Diaz. The full names of innocent family members and friends should not be used. They're already suffering enough by virtue of being related to her and her minions, why add to their misery? Please use initials to refer to these people. As for the names of Heidi's minions, past and present — use first names only or their screen names. This is a repository for information, not a stalker's paradise. Heidi's the one exception for the purpose of providing her victims with a name to report to the proper authorities.

3.) No obscenities please. Star the little f*ckers out. Or, for phxck's sake, disguise them somehow :)

4.) Please restrict what you write to facts as much as possible. Some snarking is acceptable, but please try to avoid using this site as a way to settle scores from other sites. In other words, no posts which consist of 'So-and-so is a doody-head and here's why.' This site is about Kimmer and Kimkins, not a new battlefield for personal flame wars.
