Weight Loss Ads

Despite having applied for bankruptcy, Heidi Diaz continues to blow her ill gotten money on Google Ads. It's sort of funny to read them when you know that they are written by a morbidly obese, diabetic, woman that never lost weight on her own diet despite having had gastric bypass surgery.

The ads that come up today include:

  • Turbo fast weight loss
  • Amazing "no exercise" diet secret
  • Supercharged low carb diet
  • Works fast
  • Low carb diabetic diet
  • Fast!
  • Bariatric gastric band surgery diet
  • Xtreme "no exercise" diet
  • Fast detox weight loss
  • Insulin resistant diet
  • Turbo fast fat loss
  • Lose stomach fat fast
  • Postpartum weight loss
  • Master cleanse low carb
Does this woman look like she knows what she is talking about?

Yes, sure, the picture is a couple of years old, but reportedly she really haven't lost much compared to this picture. And it was taken at a time when she claimed to be a svelte 118 lbs!

Of course, the ads use other "success" stories now. Somebody that starved off the weight and agreed to become a poster girl (or guy) for Kimkins.con. Possibly with compensation in form of affiliate payouts. I hope it is worth the money, which I'm sure isn't much. Personally, I would be embarrassed to represent this woman.

And while there are people that did lose weight on Kimkins, I wouldn't call them a success before they have managed to keep that weight off for several years. Far too many end up looking like Heidi, ending up heavier than before they started. Severe dieting does much more harm than good, in my opinion.
