Kimkins reborn as the Magic Chicken Diet?


The website looks eerily like kimkins, and they are soliciting new members:

Special Introductory Price For Lifetime Membership
Only $69.95 For First 200 Members

Sounds familiar?

or,

DISCOVER THE SECRET!
NO SURGERY, PILLS OR EXERCISE!

or,

I Lost 160 Pounds In 10 Months on The Magic Chicken Diet Program. No Pills, No Surgery, No Exercise. This is a low carb, low calorie, low fat plan and is very simple. Less fat than Atkins, a lot less carbs than South Beach and is a much faster weight loss plan than Weight Watchers.


Looks like Tippy Toes found a new "home" after all. No wonder she has been on the boards trying to recruit members.

It sure has a familiar wing... er... ring to it. Sounds like Kimkins all the way.

Diane said...

Magic chicken. I got a magic chicken for you. And some magic chicken s#!t too.

yust said...

You guys check out the chicken diet guy's other help wanted ads below that main one?

He wants to be able to edit & change the price of membership http://www.getafreelancer.com/projects/PHP-Website-Design/MCD.html

Notice in July the one time membership fee was than $19.95

http://www.getafreelancer.com/projects/PHP-Website-Design/Simple-Website-Tune-Quick-Job.html

As of 29 November the fee is $69.95

Why the increase? And when did it go up? We're betting the increase was the direct result of the lawsuit -- this chicken diet guys knows Kimkins.com is finished, & is counting on all those people scattering like crazy, trying to find a new site. What better to entice them than a clone of Kimkins?

I assure you, in the internet world. Bonnie Luper is a real person. Who

always lived in Fort Worth Texas. Her weight loss story, is 100% real. I

Cant understand, how the stupidity, in all the speculation are considered

factual.I can only guess your research, is flawed as well as your thinking.

There is no conection to any one other than her,{BONNIE LUPER} weight

loss, and wanting to share something to the world. People assume that being

fat and scared should some how slow down, a solution to a factual,

susccesfull weight loss program that helps real people,loss weight period.

You people posting anomously should come by and look her up. There are no

Tv cameras in her fron yard , no laweyers, no law suit. You people should

come hng out, Bonnie isnt shy, and has no reason to hide, to any one for any

reason. I will tell you this, she is a much,happier, more motivated person

and all the better from her weight loss. Anyways you people seem like you

have too much free time. I suggest you actully check out who, she is and find

out, that posting with no hard facts, or evidence or anything to support your

so called findings.

Hello All,
My name is Bonnie Luper and I don't know where to start but you are getting out of control with your minds. I do not know kimkin and therefore have nothing to do with her. It makes me sick to know that anyone could do what she did to people. I really did put together my own weight loss program and I did lose my weight and have been maintaining it for six months now. I have my own candle business and I have a lot of customers that watched my weight melt off. They would tell me I should do a book instead we decided to go the internet way. I am not too shy to meet anyone and show you all my pictures or my loose skin from my 165 pound weight loss. If you have the time I can take you around to hundreds of my customers and they will tell you how I use to look. I am so proud of what I did and am proud that I now can help others that are in the same situation that I use to be. I have 2 members that have just lost 95 pounds each and one of them has been taken off of blood pressure pills which she has been taking for 8 years. So I think you need to check things out more clearly before you jump to conclusions. If you are ever in the Ft. Worth Texas area let me know and I will be more than happy to meet with you. If there is anyone out there that can get me on TV sign me up now and you will see the proof. And me being innocent You ought to see what you people look like through my eyes! I use to weigh 300 lbs and unhealthy. I now weigh 135 and very healthy and happy! And by the way our $19.95 price was only for the introductory price for the first 200 members. We have reached that and the introductory special is over! So sorry we had to meet this way because I am a very nice and innocent person!

mariasol said...

lones - I never said Bonnie wasn't real, did I?

Methinks you protest a little too much. If you have nothing to do with kimkins, why would you care about my post in the first place?

lonestardjz! said...

My reason is simply this, my name is Hulon Pate. Bonnie Luper is my mother in law. Earlier my mother in law, was trying to also post to her defense. Im not sure why her post to her own finger pointers didnt get posted. She explained exsactly her point of view. Answering every detail, to her accusers. I was over her tonight posting my music online, to a new music online site. I was upset, that people who dont have any real facts about the web site, or the good people, who started it. These are really nice people who, are doing somting good. Why wont you post her replys? Marisol?

I dont understand why your hideing with selected one sided posting. Seems rather un-American.

mariasol said...

Bonnie - Thanks for stopping by. How did you find my blog? I would think only people involved in the kimkins controversy would have reason to look it up.

Bonnie said...

Mariasol,
I had a few people email me today about it and I just want everyone to know I am not affiliated with her in any way. I understand why everyone is so upset but I am for real. Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas!
Bonnie Luper

mariasol said...

Hulon - I publish the posts as soon as I see them and I have not rejected any post. Perhaps blogger just put them out of order. It was certainly not done on my part.

Something doesn't add up here. Bonnie says, "And by the way our $19.95 price was only for the introductory price for the first 200 members."

But the website currently says "Special Introductory Price For Lifetime Membership Only $69.95 For First 200 Members."

So which is it?

yust said...

Neither David nor Bonnie have responded to our emailed regarding contacting Jeanessa's attorney John Tiedt, nor have either David or Bonnie answered questions regarding how much if any they know about the Kimkins scandal.

A further question of course would be, do they really think they can pirate a website & get away with it?

Bob, Doug & the gang

mariasol said...

anonymous - I agree, but I figured she didn't want to say how few members they have (if that is the case) as it doesn't sound good for business. But that coupled with the posts on LCF about the inconsistencies with the address and phone number makes one wonder. However, I will not go on a duck chase of this company at this time as it might be a legitimate business. If so, I wish Bonnie the best of luck.

Jessica said...

Bonnie,

If you don't want to be associated with KK, then why on earth did you copy her website from soup to nuts, right down to the TOS?

Whatever.

Best wishes and a Merry Christmas to all.

The Princess said...

One thing about this site: Bonnie has pictures showing her weight journey. They look like a real woman(which, I do certainly believe she is.) They didn't hide their site ownership (like Heidi has done using first Brandon then shielding it).

But the fact that the hubby wanted to set it up like "kimkins.com" (as the LLC cut/paste of an ad showed) and the fact that it's Chicken, meats, veggies (a la Kimmer's) and that the weight loss is so radical that it's gotta be low-carb, low-cal (ie a version of Kimkins), made me think this was a woman who did Kimkins or had heard about it.

She certainly has a right to open up a website and do a Kimkins-like diet. And if her members start getting ill from rabbit starvation or VLCDieting, she might expect a lawsuit like Heidi in future (unless she took care of that with some stuff members have to agree to).

You don't low that much weight in that little time without going low calorie to Very Low Calorie. And if the veggies end up being "greens a la spinach or broccoli" along with laen meats and egg whites, then, yeah, we're talking Kimkins in a new Chicken Suit.

But I give this person credit for being herself with real pictures, not a total fraud like Kimmer (who never lost the weight and never used her real "after" pictures until she had to.)

antikimkins said...

No offense to Bonnie - congrats on the weight loss - but she looked MUCH healthier before. Her face now looks very gaunt, and unhealthy, and sickly. Her hair looks thinner too - I wonder if she suffered from massive hair loss.

She can't say she knew nothing at all about Kimkins, when her site is the exact duplicate of Kk's template, duh. So she obviously knows about the fraud that is Kimkins.

This is ridiculous. Either she's real - real stupid, or she's Heidi putting her famous "escape plan" into action.

yust said...

We're wondering, how did David know what the inside of Kimkins looks like? & he must've known, otherwise why would he advertise saying he wants a clone of Kimkins?

Either he or Bonnie was a member or else they still are. That's the only way they would know what Kimkins looks like from the inside.

At least, that's the theory we prefer for now.

& we still wanna know -- have either David or Bonnie contacted JohnT. yet?

yust said...

Mariasol says (to Bonnie) "How did you find my blog? I would think only people involved in the kimkins controversy would have reason to look it up."

Good question, M. And why would she talk about how not-shy she is? Why would Bonnie mention it unless she was familiar with Kimmer's shy story?

I cant even imagine the number of emails this lady has received ...I am not surprised at all that she knows about this.

Hulon said...

Here is it is for the record. My name is Hulon Pate, im 33 years old and Bonnie & David Son in law.
David and Bonnie Own a Candle buisness.Now that being said its a full time buisness like any thing when you work for your self and dont punch a time clock. When she lost her weight her freinds and family suggested they write a book or web site. They decided on a web site. This is 2007, the internet world at large, they started this web site on the basis of her own weight loss story and not in fact, trying to capitalize on kimskins road to ruin. They spent thousands of dollars, and more thousands of hours building this from the ground floor up. They are genuine people who work hard for there piece of pie in life. I have no intrest in this except that Kimkins is a fraud period. Bonnies susscess is real as is her weight loss story. People being critical of her weight loss program, well being fat is by far more of a health risk. People say Why charge well, its the same reason people charge large amounts for clothes. If they were cheap who the hell would ever want them. Nothing worth while is ever free. The same goes for Bill Gates, he has more money, than most of the richest people on earth, yet he still charges for his computers and software.
Bonnies underlieng factor in this was not to get rich over night, but to simply to afford surgery, to replace the brest she lost 18 years ago to breast cancer. Kimkins by every account is a fraud. yet her people had go daddy take down there site today as of Dec 16th 2007, with a formal complaint that they ripped off her forums and diet content for food. Now all things being equal, all diets or for that matter simular buisness will have manny of the same, concepts and products listed. How could a diet program not be simular? Atkins is simular to Kimkins as well as most any other diet that would actully result in weight loss. Eating less, healthier food choices. how can any one be so stupid and not see this. If you sold, a service online and some one elese started the same buisness, online how could it not have mirroring ideas and products and details. Bonnie and David did not steal nor borrow or in fact have any ideas about kim kins or there diet or web site period. Untill the news brought up her being a complete liar. THere both too busy with there other obligations to there, professions.
They didnt rip kimkins off, they didnt borrow any ideas. If you even knew these people you know, it took guts and courage and most important money to do this web site. This all really started this week honestly, and kim kins and her flunkies are waging a smear campaign on Bonnie Luper. A woman who has survived brest cancer. I got wedding photos to show her in 2003, that she was once a verry large woman. And now she is living life and happy. Hell its minorly snowed on Thanks Giving Day, and she was running around and playing in it. The First time I remember seeing Bonnie was in Dec 2002, she was in a parking lot crying, eating a hamburger, upset by her lack of will power. She is by far a much happier person this day. All you nuts who doubt her, will soon see, she is 100% real, and isnt out to screw any one. Kimmmers and her group are out to trow mud and keep her TRUE SToREY, offline, because as you might all know, New years Brings the most buisness for Weightloss programs such as, Weight Watchers, and Jenny Craig. Bonnie Luper did not create the lies of Kim kins. Shes much too busy of a person to even, have time to copy cat any one for any reason. You all must either all be unemplyed or have no lifes what so ever to be so envolved in the mud slnging that is going on, and I have a sneaky feeling that Kimmers has a certian few of you on the payrole.

This wasnt some over night get rich quick scam. I saw bonnie, Eating CHicken,back in 05& 06 most of the time out of a can from Costco, which all of out family enjoys,shopping at. There are manny Candle makers in our family.

Just like maybe some of you went the first person to cut hair for a living or sell cars, or become a florest. THis is kimmers sitting at home with her suitcases of money,that she scammed from people.
Trying to keep up her income and trying to keep a real woman who actully lost wieght from getting the spot light, that she deserves.
{you guys do know the day before her assets were frozen she, bought a house for cash money?}


YOu people are sitting there, on your computers, should you have a job or dont. Most dont realize what it takes to start a buinsess.
Most wouldnt have a clue.

Kimkins is going to cringe when, more bad press comes out that because shes a liar, shes trying to hurt a woman, who is a breast Cancer surviver. Kimkin I know your readin this, if you in fact can read or have enough money some ones reading this for you. If you would just follow, Bonnies diet you could loose weight, and wouldnt have to hide from the world at large. you know Bonnies Diet is better and shes the real deal and you cant stand it. Just know, that you cant ever remember the lie, but the truth is easy to tell. God have Mercy on your Soul Kimmers your fixxing to need it.

Bonnies Liable to come beat Kimkins ASS!

So you are of the impression that people would email this lady and say to her "Oh, you have to go check out Marisol's blog at blogger?"

Who would those people be, exactly?

I don't see how there is a direct cause and effect here. How would the volume of emails to the owner have any relation to the final destination of Marisol's blog?

Your comment reads as if here is this poor woman, charging for diet advice, knew nothing of Kimkins.com and has just received an onslaught of emails and ended up here within the day that Marisol made the post.

How do you feel it is connected?
