Brand engineer extraordinaire, Kim Kardashian West is now touting yet another product that she is giving her zillion dollar stamp of approval to…the Atkins diet! The recent second-time-around mom is promoting the Atkins way of life in her quest to dissolve the sixty pounds she picked up while pregnant with her son, Saint according to People Magazine. The weight loss program, Atkins 40 was the plan Kim previously used, after she gave birth to daughter North in 2013.
During Kim’s first pregnancy, she gained over fifty pounds and after North was born, she was determined to regain her tight curves. The raven-haired co-star of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” followed a strict exercise regimen and ate the Atkins way which places an emphasis on high-fat, high-protein and low carbohydrates consumption. The Atkins 40 plan allows 40 grams of net carbohydrates per day. The diet suggests eating 3-4 ounces of protein per serving, along with 3 servings of added healthy fats per day. Healthy fats include avocados, coconut oil, olive oil, and nuts or seeds. Followers of the diet have touted it as a way of eating that does not make them feel deprived.
When Kim got pregnant with Saint she weighed in at around 130 pounds according to People. By the end of her pregnancy, the petite A-lister topped the scales at 190 pounds. Saint was born on December 5 and by the 17th, Kim had already lost 17 pounds which she attributes to breastfeeding. By January 19, Kim announced via Twitter that she had shed 30 pounds in all but needed to knock off another 40. “I’m so excited! I’m 30 lbs down today but 40 to go! I’m so focused. I will show u guys my workouts on my app & share my Atkins plan too!” Even though Kim had gained 60 pounds during her pregnancy, she also admitted to having gained ten pounds over the last few years which she is determined to peel off her bod.
Kim proclaimed to her over 39 million Twitter followers how she is a little jittery because losing weight is no picnic but she is revved up stating, “This is going to be soooo f—ing hard but I can do it and I can’t wait to share it all with you! #BeastMode #WhosWithMe ?!?!?!”
