This arrived in my inbox via CareerGirlDaily.com and got me thinking about maybe going back onto the Atkins Diet.
I’m pretty sure than Kim K.W. probably does insane amounts of exercise with a seriously brilliant trainer, making the diet work far more quickly and fabulously. And I have neither the trainer nor the time for much in the way of consistent exercise, so no doubt I wouldn’t achieve what she has, but she certainly is inspiring.
The Easy Eating Plan That Kim Kardashian Swears By For Losing Weight
Kim Kardashian is #BodyGoals. She has curves for days, in all the right places – and best of all, she knows the importance of eating right to get in shape.
Since giving birth to son Saint West in December, Kardashian West has been following the Atkins 40 diet to lose the 60 pounds she reportedly gained while pregnant with her second child.
On Snapchat, she recently revealed her latest weigh-in at 132 pounds—three pounds less than her pre-baby weight of 135 pounds—and wrote, “12 pounds to reach 2010 Kim!” (Personally, I think she looks fine the way she is!)
How? By sticking to a daily intake of no more than 1,800 calories. Oh, and she eats very few carbs and drinks lots of water, as is outlined in her Atkins 40 plan.
In a recent interview with People magazine, Kim said: “Anyone who has had kids knows your body changes, and it’s hard to get your body back in shape. It takes so much determination, and mental and physical power and energy.”
So here’s her food diary for three days. I think it sounds mega delicious!
