Kim Kardashian showed off her 80-pound Atkins diet weight loss in a racy swimsuit selfie on Instagram and an oily Snapchat bikini photo.
Kim posted a sexy photo of herself wearing a silver swimsuit on both Twitter and Instagram just one day after posting a Snapchat selfie in a strapless gold bikini.
In both photos, Kardashian showcased her newly slim body after losing 80 pounds during the past 8 months.
Kardashian’s weight loss secrets were cardio exercise and the low carb, high-fat Akins diet, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
While Kim still enjoys cheat meals such as cheese fries and desserts, she usually eats healthy fats such as olive oil, proteins like eggs, salmon or chicken, leafy green salads and low-starch vegetables.
Kim limited her daily carb intake to 40 net grams on the Atkins diet, and said the weight dropped off quickly.
The 5-foot-2 Kardashian, who weighed 200 pounds while pregnant, recently said she weighed 123 pounds.
Low carb, high-fat diets like the Atkins and ketogenic diets promote rapid weight loss weight loss by encouraging the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Maria Emmerich, author of Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking.
Limiting carbs and eating more healthy fats curbs hunger, boosts energy and controls cravings, explained Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
Kim Kardashian also credited waist training for her tiny waist. In 2014, Kim said she wore a waist trainer several hours a day to regain her small waist after giving birth to daughter North.
Kardashian, who confessed she was terrified she’d never lose all the baby weight, feels confident again.
“Now that I feel like I’ve gotten down to my goal weight a little bit more, I want to wear less clothes,” said Kim, who said she’ll post a nude selfie again soon.
