Kim Kardashian has earned her way into the Celebrity Weight Loss Winners Hall Of Fame. Setting her goal and starting her low carb diet soon after welcoming her son Saint West into the world, Kardashian just announced that she achieved her goal of losing 70 pounds.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is dishing out the secrets to her weight loss success, which she credits to a combination of the Atkins diet plan and a hard-core fitness regime. Even Kardashian is impressed by her slim-down speed, revealing that she lost her post-pregnancy pounds faster than she expected, reported E News.
“I’m definitely to my goal weight. I’m down more than I expected,” said Kim proudly.
When it comes to staying on her diet, Kardashian doesn’t try to hide the fact that she loves sweets. However, her diet plan allowed certain types of sweets and treats, making it easier for her to stick with the weight loss program.
“I think if you just really stay motivated and focused, the Atkins diet was so easy for me because there’s so many sweets and treats that keep you satisfied along the way,” revealed Kim.
Kardashian also found her diet was easier because her husband, Kanye West, doesn’t share her desire to indulge in sweet treats, resulting in a “lifestyle at home” that eliminates any tempting junk food.
“I think with the help of all of that it’s been super easy,” summed up Kim.
“Kanye doesn’t love sweets so that really helps to not have a lot of junk around.”
As for fitness, a little help from her friends (and family) made a big difference. Although there might be days when Kardashian isn’t so motivated to hit the gym, she’s surrounded by sisters and a husband who are always up for a fitness challenge.
“My sisters are really into working out right now,” shared the reality TV star. “So when you have a good support system and you all want to just get it together… Kanye is super into working out. It just makes it easy…”
Now at her 120-pound goal, Kim continues to stay mainly on her low-carb, high protein Atkins diet and fitness regime, noted the Daily Mail.
Kardashian’s food plan consists of three protein-rich meals plus snacks. A sample breakfast features an omelet made with cheese and vegetables. For her mid-morning snack, hummus and peppers or Greek yogurt with berries and almonds keeps the reality TV star going until lunch.
A typical lunch stars protein and vegetables, such as a turkey burger and salad, while a sample dinner might feature chicken sausage and noodles made of zucchini. Each meal emphasizes protein and vegetables as well as healthy fats. Kardashian limits carbohydrates, but sometimes has a small amount of brown rice or potato.
Helping take off the pounds is that focused fitness plan. Kim has been documenting her workouts on Snapchat, noted People.
“Running 4 miles, planks, push ups, 1000 jump ropes & abs.”
Kim has been working out with a celebrity fitness personal trainer, Gunnar Peterson. In addition to the mom of North and Saint, Gunnar has helped Khloe and other Keeping Up With The Kardashians stars keep up with their workouts. And it helps that Peterson provides a private workout facility for his celebrity clients, noted Kim.
“Gunnar is amazing! He has a private gym where we just grind, grind, grind!!!” praised the mom of two.
“I put in the work and I definitely see it paying off.”
However, Kardashian believes that working out with others helps her to stay motivated. Consequently, the reality TV star enjoys heading to group classes with her sisters and mom Kris Jenner, including Barry’s Bootcamp, SoulCycle, and Pilates Plus.
The Atkins 40 diet that complements her rigorous workout routine provides Kim with approximately 1,800 calories daily.
