Kim Kardashian has reached her pre-pregnancy weight of 135 pounds after her 65-pound weight loss on the low-carb Atkins diet.
Kim made the announcement on Snapchat, where she posted a photo of a scale showing her current weight at 135.8 pounds.
“Yaaaassssss!!! #Atkins,” Kardashian wrote in the caption to the now-deleted Snapchat photo.
The 5-foot-2 Kim gained over 65 pounds during her second pregnancy, and weighed more than 200 pounds at delivery.
Kardashian now weighs 135 pounds and couldn’t be prouder. Kim’s weight loss secrets were the low carb Atkins diet and cardio workouts, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Kardashian, who gave birth to her second child in December 2015, previously said she wants to lose an additional 15 pounds to reach her goal weight of 120 pounds.
Kardashian lost 65 pounds during the past 6 months with a low carb Atkins diet plan that limited her daily carb intake to 40 net grams.
In 2014, Kim lost 56 pounds in 6 months with an Atkins diet that limited her daily carb intake to less than 60 grams, TheImproper 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, author of New Atkins For a New You.

Reducing carbs and eating healthy fats fuels rapid weight loss, suppresses appetite, and boosts energy, said dietitian Colette Heimowitz, author of The New Atkins Made Easy.
Other celebrities who have lost dramatic amounts of weight on the Atkins diet include Alyssa Milano, who shed 46 pounds, and Kendra Wilkinson, who lost 55 pounds.
In addition to doing Atkins, Kim Kardashian did lots of cardio exercise and wore a waist trainer several hours a day.
Kim said looking at old bikini photos reminded her that she lost a lot of weight before, and can do it again.
“It’s not easy,” said Kardashian. “I gained a lot of weight. I definitely feel good where I’m comfortable again and things are starting to fit.”
