Kim Kardashian Weight Loss Diet

“I did a strict Atkins diet. Strict, strict, strict.” Kim was on Atkins 40 diet plan, which she had already followed with her dad when she was in high school. Kim said in an interview that after having her second child, she told herself, “I want to feel sexy again, I want to feel good about myself.” Moreover, she also had a date set for shooting the cover of a magazine. Naturally, she wanted to shape up before the deadline. Kim Kardashian told WWD, “I mean I love to workout and you definitely have to workout to tone up, but so much of it is how you eat. I had to really stay focused. I had to cut out all the sweets, and I had such a sweet tooth.” Here’s the list of foods that she relished during her weight loss phase.

Kim Kardashian is rumored to have taken Garcinia cambogia weight loss pills. Garcinia cambogia tastes tangy and is a tropical fruit that recently gained the reputation as a weight loss booster. Also, Kim drank green coffee, like Oprah Winfrey, to lose the baby weight quickly and effectively. The names of the brands that Kim is speculated to have used are Refresh Garcinia and Green Coffee Cleanse. If you want to use these pills, please consult your dietician or doctor. And I suggest you use products that are FDA approved.

Kim did a tremendous job at losing the weight, with or without pills. But there is one thing no one can deny – Kim Kardashian was also supported and motivated by the best weight loss coach/nutritionist. Colette Heimowitz is a wizard. And here are a few of her magical advises to all those who are on a weight loss mission. Don’t miss this out!

Kim Kardashian Weight Loss Tips

  • Say No To Sugar And Starch

I know, it’s tough but not impossible. Take baby steps and start avoiding sugar and starchy foods. You should also cut down on high glycemic index fruits such as mango, jackfruit, and grapes. Avoid pasta, bread, croissant, processed food, sweets, refined sugar etc.

  • Consume Healthy Fats

Do not avoid all fats thinking consuming fat will make you gain weight. In fact, consuming the right kind of fats can help you to lose weight! Healthy fats such as omega-3-fatty acids in fish oil and fish, peanut butter, flaxseed, nuts, sunflower seeds, sunflower butter, pumpkin seeds, rice bran oil, olive oil, and avocado help to reduce inflammation. This, in turn, helps inhibit inflammation-induced weight gain.

  • Protein Is A Must

Every meal you eat should contain a portion of protein. Eggs, tofu, mushroom, lentils, beans, fish, chicken breast, turkey, seeds, milk, and nuts are a great source of protein. Proteins are tough to digest and therefore will keep your hunger pangs at bay. It will also help you shed fat and build lean muscle.

  • Veggies To The Rescue

Vegetables are rich in complex carbs, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fiber. Consuming veggies can help balance your body’s pH, cleanse the colon, improve digestion, boost immunity and memory, and keep the stress away. The antioxidants present in veggies also help improve your skin, hair, and overall beauty.

  • Eat Small Meals Every 3-4 Hours

Eating small meals every 3-4 hours will keep your metabolism active, thereby allowing your body to burn the flab. A good metabolic rate will also help improve digestion and keep your hunger pangs at bay.

  • Drink Water

Keep yourself hydrated by sipping water throughout the day. You can add cucumber and mint to your water to make it vitamin-rich and exciting. Drinking water will help flush out the toxins, keep your metabolism active, maintain cell integrity, and balance internal pH.

  • Choose Smart Cookies

Sugary or salty cravings can ruin the whole weight loss plan. So, better be prepared. Stuff your kitchen cabinets with oatmeal cookies, raisins, peanut butter cups, dark chocolate etc. These will help appease your cravings without hampering your weight loss agenda.

You may also have granola bars, celery, or cheddar cheese as snacks in the Atkins diet.
  • Build Social Support

Staying motivated is the key to losing weight. But we often fall off the wagon while socializing. So, build your social support by making your friends and family understand how losing weight is important to you. If you are going out, choose a restaurant that serves low-carb, nutritionally balanced food. You should also start talking to people who are also on the same mission. This will help you discuss your progress and keep you motivated.

  • Pre/Post Workout Nutrition

“The post workout meal will help you meet your calorie requirements and keep you fortified,” says Heimowitz. Pre or post workout nutrition will help quicker muscle recovery and weight loss. However, depending on your body type, you must take a pre or post workout drink. Talk to your dietician or fitness trainer to find out what is best for your body.
