Kim Kardashian doesn’t look quite like herself in a photo that Kourtney Kardashian recently shared on Instagram, and Kardashian fans are totally freaking out. The photo was seemingly supposed to be all about showing off the sisters’ slender bodies, but Kourtney’s Instagram followers were too distracted by Kim’s face to notice how much weight she’s lost since giving birth to Saint West.
According to the Daily Mail, the photo in question has Kourtney Kardashian’s followers asking, “What’s up with Kim’s face?” Kim Kardashian hasn’t been her usual selfie-sharing self since giving birth, but she’s remained active on Instagram by posting throwback photos. It’s possible that there’s some reason Kim doesn’t want people to see the way she currently looks, but she can’t stop her family members from snapping pictures like the one below and posting them on their own social media pages.
“Studio h*es. #SWISH,” Kourtney Kardashian captioned the photo. As you can see, Kim is also taking a mirror selfie, but she chose not to share it on her Instagram page.
The Daily Mail reports that the photo of Kim Kardashian is the first one that has been shared with the public since she gave birth 50 days ago, so now some of Kim’s fans are starting to speculate that she hasn’t been posting recent pictures of herself on Instagram because she had a little work done after welcoming her second child. The photo of Kim and Kourtney has already received over 3,000 comments, and many of these are about Kim’s face.
“Kim looks like she destroyed her nose,” one of Kourtney’s followers wrote.
“Too much fake.. Kim should have stayed away from the needles and knife. Now her natural beauty is no more. So sad,” another commented.
Some commenters are pointing out that Kim Kardashian’s nose looks different and that her face looks a bit swollen. Many believe that this puffy look is the result of fillers or Botox.
Kim hasn’t responded to the speculation about her face, and there’s no word on whether she’s upset with Kourtney for sharing the photo above – it’s possible that Kim has been avoiding cameras because she wants everyone to make a big deal about her post-baby body whenever she reaches her weight loss goal. According to E! News, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed that she gained 60 pounds while she was pregnant with Saint West, but she decided that she wouldn’t be satisfied with simply returning to her pre-pregnancy weight – Kim set a weight loss goal of 70 pounds. She’s already lost 30 pounds, and the photo above might make it hard for some to believe that she has 40 more to lose.
Kim Kardashian is trying to bring back a retro diet while she works hard to lose weight. According to People, Kim is using the Atkins diet to slim down, and she’s signed on as an ambassador for Atkins 40. The Atkins diet was one of the first low-carb diets — maybe because it made people feel better about eating bacon? According to the Atlantic, the diet has been tweaked a bit over the years, and it’s not quite as anti-carb as it once was. On the Atkins 40 plan, dieters are told to limit themselves to 40 net carbs a day, and of course there are a wide range of Atkins-branded products available to help dieters stick to the plan. These include shakes, snack bars, and frozen meals.
Kim Kardashian used the Atkins diet to lose weight after North West was born, so she likely decided to give it a go again because she knows that it produces results for her. The fact that Atkins is paying her to lose weight is probably also a great form of motivation, and it’s possible that she’s been careful to hide her post-baby body because the company has plans for her to unveil as part of a marketing gimmick.
Do you think Kim Kardashian looks like she’s already slimmed down enough in Kourtney Kardashian’s photo, and does her face look totally different to you?
