Kim Kardashian showcased her 50-pound weight loss and hot post-baby body at supermodel Naomi Campbell’s book signing.
Kim looked gorgeous in a tight red Balmain dress that accentuated her curves.
Kardashian, who gave birth in December 2015, said she now weighs 139 pounds — just 4 pounds away from her pre-pregnancy weight of 135.
Kim has lost more than 50 pounds in the past 4 months. Her weight loss secrets include the low carb high-fat Atkins diet and cardio exercise, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
The 5-foot-2 Kim, who weighed 190 pounds at childbirth, has lost 50 pounds on the Atkins diet during the past 4 months. She wants to lose 20 more pounds to reach her goal weight of 120.
Kardashian is limiting her daily carb intake to about 40 grams a day. This isn’t the first time Kim has relied on the low carb, high-fat Atkins diet to lose weight.
In 2014, Kardashian lost 56 pounds in 6 months with an Atkins diet that limited her daily carb intake to less than 60 net grams, Examiner reported.
Low carb, high-fat diets like the Atkins and ketogenic diets promote rapid weight loss by inducing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
Dr. David Ludwig, a physician and nutrition professor at Harvard, agrees. Ludwig lost 20 pounds in 3 months on a low-carb diet without feeling hungry or counting calories.
Reducing carbs and eating more healthy fats accelerates weight loss and ensures consistent energy, said Dr. Ludwig, author of the bestseller, Always Hungry? Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells, and Lose Weight Permanently.
Actress Melissa McCarthy recently lost 75 pounds with a low-carb diet, and is now a size 14.
In addition to the Atkins diet, Kim Kardashian also exercises regularly and wears a waist trainer several hours a day to narrow her waist.Kim’s workouts include weightlifting and lots of squats and lunges to tone her butt.
Kim said looking back at old bikini photos of herself reminds her to not get frustrated when she doesn’t lose weight quickly.
“I have to be patient,” said Kardashian. “You can do it, it will just take time.”
