Kim Kardashian said her jaw-dropping 80 pound weight loss was due to the low-carb, high-fat Atkins diet and cardio exercise.

The 5-foot-2 Kim, who weighed more than 200 pounds while pregnant, shed 80 pounds during the past 7 months with the Atkins diet, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.

To burn lots of calories and torch fat, the mom of two ran or walked on the treadmill and used the elliptical trainer.

“I definitely feel good where I’m comfortable again and things are starting to fit,” said Kardashian, who’s trying to reach her goal weight of 120 pounds.

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 Laura Childs, author of Low Carb High Fat No Hunger Diet.

Laura and her daughter Veronica lost a combined 110 pounds with a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic Paleo diet and feel better than ever, TheImproper reported.

Reducing carbs and eating healthy fats fuels rapid weight loss, suppresses appetite, and boosts energy, said obesity expert Maria Emmerich, author of Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking.

Other celebrities who have lost dramatic amounts of weight on a low-carb diet include Melissa McCarthy, who lost 75 pounds, and Jessica Simpson, who lost 70 pounds.

Kim Kardashian’s Atkins diet menu was mostly vegetables, protein and healthy fats, TheImproper reported.

She snacked on Atkins protein bars and did cardio exercise every day.

The brunette beauty said looking at old bikini photos inspired her to lose weight by reminding her she had slimmed down before, and could do it again.

“It’s not easy,” said Kardashian. “I gained a lot of weight. I definitely feel good where I’m comfortable again.”
