Kim Kardashian Hires Nutritionist To Avoid Pregnancy Weight Gain And Health Issues

Kim Kardashian is making a conscious effort to avoid any problems during her second pregnancy. She wants to avoid an almost 50-pound weight gain or serious health problems. It’s been reported that Kim Kardashian has hired a nutritionist to help her stay on track and to keep her blood pressure down.

According to a new report via Vine, Kardashian, 34, suffered from preeclampsia during her first pregnancy to North West. It’s a rare condition that elevates a woman’s blood pressure during her pregnancy. It also causes headaches, swelling, and vision problems, along with weight gain. Kardashian wants to make sure that it doesn’t happen again.

During an interview with Us Weekly, Kim shared the details of her new diet. She plans to drink more water and consume less sodium.

“This time around, I have a nutritionist that I was seeing before to keep me healthy while I’m pregnant. The last pregnancy I ate a doughnut every single day. I’m not doing that this time, but I’ve also been taking it easy and enjoying myself… Pregnancy is not the most comfortable thing for me, but I’m really going to try to embrace it this time.”

According to a new report in HollywoodLife, the reality star gained over 50 pounds during her first pregnancy. Health and fitness expert Lisa DeFazio explained to the celebrity gossip site that such a drastic weight gain could put Kim and her baby’s health in danger.

“It’s important that Kim avoid a huge weight gain with this pregnancy because it can lead to high blood pressure which can lead to preeclampsia, and gestational diabetes. This is harmful for both mother and child. It means the baby is getting too much sugar, which is unhealthy.”

Kim Kardashian’s first pregnancy was so difficult that she swore off having a baby again. After having baby North, the famous Kardashian sister knew that she wanted to have another child. On a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, she revealed that the reason she originaly swore off pregnancy was due to the body image issues and public scrutiny.

“They really hurt my soul. It changed how I am in public. I’ve tried to live more of a private life. My body just went crazy. After five months I swore I’d never get pregnant again. I got so huge and it felt like someone had taken over my body.”

Kim Kardashian recently blasted reports that claim she’s carrying a baby boy. Kardashian won’t even know the sex of the baby until later this month. She also plans to decorate her nursery once she finds out she’s carrying a boy or a girl.
