Kim Kardashian, reality star, mother of two and style & fitness icon follows a tough diet & fitness plan which she sticks to, no matter what well, because she is Kim Kardashian though I am guessing she has her cheat days too! She publicly claimed to have lost 42 pounds of her baby weight, post giving birth to Saint West. How did she do it? Here goes…
Kim is a fan of the Atkins Diet: Kim Kardashian has claimed on social media about her loyalty to the Atkins diet. Shes given shoutouts to the company on Twitter & Instagram. And she’s been a long time follower, since her college It was very familiar to her and she trusts the plan because it worked so well for her in the past. But she loved the results it gave post giving birth to her daughter, North. So she followed the same diet after her second baby… and the results are there for the world to see.

Kim is a fan of waist training: Kim started the waist training craze when she posted a pic of herself on social media wearing a waist-binding cincher. A lot of women didn’t know what the heck they were looking at when they saw the photo she posted. Kim has been using the corset to help reduce the size of her midsection and, by all accounts, it seems to have worked its magic. Shes done it after both her pregnancies too….well, if it worked for her, I’m willing to give it a shot! And not only Kim. Kardashian, many celebrities like Jessica Alba, Amber Rose, Kourtney Kardashian, Jwow, etc have attributed their amazing bodies, to waist training. See the pictures for yourself.
Kim is all for that Protein & Fibre: Whether its eggs, fish, chicken, or meat, Kim has protein in every single meal to help keep her full and satisfied. Makes sense, as research has shown that those who get the daily recommended amount of protein into their system lose more weight than those who don’t. Couple that with high-fiber foods (think artichokes and squash) and healthy fats(like avocado and olive oil) like Kim does – you’re on the way to weight loss success.
She is definitely NOT low-cal: Kim goes on the low carb road, because of the Atkins diet, but she loves her cheese omelette with turkey bacon. Sliced chicken with fresh mozzarella. Onion soup with melted cheese on top. A few slices with black olives. Kim loves all of that come with restrictions: Sour cream, half-and-half, and butter. These things aren’t unlimited, but you can have them—just enough to keep you satisfied. Why?? Because a low-calorie diet does more harm because you are depriving your body of the energy & nutrition it needs, specially if you’re breast feeding.Science shows that restricting calories slows down your metabolism anyway, so you burn calories at a slower rate and end up hanging on to weight rather than shedding it.
Did you say Calories? In fact Kim consumes about 1800 calories a day! Yes, which is actually the minimum calories you should be taking if you are breast feeding. According to experts, a woman should consume around 1800- 2200 calories a day, post pregnancy. How do those calories break down for Kim? Well, she gets four to six ounces of protein, four ounces of cheese, eight to 10 servings of veggies, and two tablespoons of added fat per day (so not including the fats she gets from whole foods or protein sources). But because she’s a celebrity, Kim doesn’t have to worry about measuring, planning and making the menu—thanks to her chef and nutritionist . But she is a very busy celebrity and is eating out very often but she makes healthy menu choices when eating out.
Yes, there are no-go foods: Kim avoids a lot of types of foods when she’s on the diet. No Sugar, sweets, cakes, crackers, white flour, white rice. And while we all know Atkins is low-carb, that doesn’t mean no carb. It’s about choosing smarter ones. The secret is [to] pick high-fiber carbohydrates that slow the release of sugar into the bloodstream. So instead of white rice you have a little brown rice. Instead of a white potato you could have a yam. While that makes sense for some people, don’t sweat it if it is beyond you to follow. Eating everything in moderation can work when trying to lose weight too, but portion control is the key. Also, keeping track of what you have consumed in a day, by maintaining a food diary also helps.
But she is not too hard on herself: Weight loss is not a miracle. And it is different for different women. Outside factors like stress, diet & environment also impact weight loss. What matters is that you eat healthy & exercise moderately and the results will show. If you need help starting, here is a quick and easy 7 day meal plan. Yes, you can do it
