Christin Sherburne leading a lawsuit against the Kimkins diet
Most people who have been following my blog for any length of time over the past year already knows about the Kimkins diet scam and the ongoing class action lawsuit that has been brought up against the diet's founder Heidi Diaz, aka "Kimmer." One of the leading voices against Kimkins now is a woman who was featured on the front cover of Woman's World magazine in June 2007 touting her 100-pound weight loss in just five months. But a series of strange events involving Diaz and some potentially life-threatening health complications opened up her eyes to the dangers of the Kimkins diet scheme.
In Episode 163 of "The Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Show with Jimmy Moore," I'm pleased to share a very open and honest interview with Christin Sherburne who has been through a whirlwind of experiences over this past year, including being featured on KTLA-TV in Los Angeles, CA, "The Morning Show with Mike and Juliet" on FOX-TV, and even on ABC-TV's "Good Morning America" putting out a warning signal to anyone who has been tempted to go on the Kimkins diet. Christin has come under a lot of fire for being on the front lines of this battle against Heidi Diaz both from people who support Kimkins and even those who are against it like she is. Listen to her story for yourself and YOU decide what you think about Christin Sherburne's current crusade.

Christin Sherburne takes us through this up-and-down journey over the past year when she was in support of Kimkins because of her incredible weight loss on it and then to her fervent opposition to this diet plan that threatened her health and is harming the lives of real people even to this day. I've been privileged to get to know Christin over this past year and met her in February this year on our first annual low-carb cruise (she'll be coming on the cruise in January 2009 as well!). She really is one of the nicest people you will ever meet.
In the podcast, Christin opens up about those confusing days following her experience as the Kimkins cover-girl when she became the public relations spokesperson for the diet, how she ran into a brick wall when she asked Heidi Diaz/Kimmer to answer some of the questions that had been swirling around the Internet from concerned onlookers, the role Laura Dolson played in helping her see the fraud this diet and its founder is, her unending determination to expose this scam wherever she can to help protect others from falling victim to it, what's happening with the class action civil lawsuit and potential criminal lawsuit against Heidi Diaz, and the positive things that have come out of this entire ordeal that are impacting her life today.
