Dana Carpender says “No Comment” about Kimkins

Does Dana Carpender support Kimkins or not? Back in May this year, I expressed disappointment that by all accounts Dana Carpender was in favor of the Kimkins Diet. I then pointed out:

“References to Dana’s support of Kimkins are still available on the internet. There is no information that she has denounced Kimkins or that she disagrees with the Kimkins diet. From all appearances she still supports it.”

Soon after writing the above post, I was informed that Jimmy Moore was going to interview Dana for a podcast. I felt confident that she would then take the opportunity to officially denounce the Kimkins Diet.

So did she? Jimmy says in his introduction to the podcast:

“And you NEVER have to worry about Dana coming up with an opinion–she’s got plenty of ’em to go around!”

That obviously doesn’t apply to Kimkins. She doesn’t have much to say about it one way or the other. Just referring to that she doesn’t know enough about it.


She knew enough about it one year ago to email Jimmy in support of the diet. But now she can not find a few minutes to read the stories on Kimkins Survivors? Or the excellent summary on About.com? How can anybody in the online lowcarb community not know about Kimkins?

I also know for a fact that prominent anti-kk bloggers/activists have emailed Dana, asking her to take a stance. To no avail.

Jimmy Moore tells us:

“She (Dana) has arguably had more influence on the way people view a low-carb lifestyle on the publishing and consumer side than anyone else ever has!”

If that is true, I think Dana needs to take to heart the message that was once delivered to Jimmy Moore himself by Duckyopines (Kimkins Exposed):

“With growing popularity, comes decisions and responsibilities, which with one wrong move, can quickly end all you’ve built. The internet is like sand, nothing is guaranteed, and for success that continues in the long-term, one must be conscious of the fragile nature of the online experience.”
