The Kimkins Diet

Worst Diets of All Time

The Kimkins diet is not only notoriously low-calorie, it's also a notorious fraud. Started by Heidi Diaz, also known as "Kimmer," the web-based diet conned users into paying for a diet plan that consisted of as few as 500 calories and the heavy use of laxatives. This plan is devastatingly unhealthy, and can lead to malnutrition, heart palpitations and hair loss. It has no founding in science or medicine whatsoever.

What's worse, all the testimonials on the website were completely fabricated. Even the story of Kimmer herself, who claimed to have lost over 100 pounds in less than a year, was untrue. In fact, Heidi Diaz is a morbidly obese woman who has never lost weight.
