Kim Kardashian Ruled Met Gala In Body-Hugging Versace: Her Weight-Loss Secrets

Kim Kardashian ruled the red carpet at the 2018 Met Gala, where she turned heads in a body-hugging gold Versace dress that spotlighted her famous hourglass figure. Kardashian previously revealed that she followed a 10-day liquid weight-loss diet to fit into her skin-tight gown, as the Inquisitr has reported.

Kim attended this year's Met Gala without husband Kanye West, who's busy working on his new music album. In past years, the fashion-conscious power couple went together.

Kardashian won widespread praise from fashionistas everywhere for her ethereal, goddess-like appearance. From her lustrous long ponytail to her colored contact lenses to her impeccable makeup (smoky eye/nude lip), Kim earned raves from head to toe.

Many on social media said the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star easily topped this year's best-dressed list. While Kim is a self-professed fashion fanatic, her hyper-sexualized outfits aren't always so flattering.

During her pregnancies, Kim often cried over the cruel fat-shaming by media and online trolls, who mocked her weight gain. Tabloids wrote nonstop stories claiming she had gotten so fat that Kanye threatened to dump her. Those incidents were chronicled on Kim's reality TV show.

During the past year, Kardashian has gotten in the best shape of her life, thanks to a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic-style diet and regular workouts that combine fat-burning cardio exercise with light weight training.

Kim's diet is a less-strict version of the low-carb ketogenic diet her older sister Kourtney Kardashian credits for her hot bikini body at age 39.

The keto diet is a low-carb, high-fat, moderate-protein eating plan that restricts carbohydrates and emphasizes unprocessed saturated fats such as butter and olive oil, as well as high-quality proteins like salmon, eggs, pasture-raised beef, and chicken.

The ketogenic diet has been touted for promoting rapid weight loss and has been used clinically to curb epileptic seizures in children, as the Inquisitr previously reported. Oscar winner Halle Berry credits the keto diet for her age-defying bikini body and for managing her diabetes.

Typically when a woman loses weight, her chest shrinks along with the rest of her body because the breasts are mostly fat tissue. In Kim's case, the suspiciously targeted weight loss she experienced after her pregnancies have caused many to speculate that she got butt implants, fat transfers to her hips and buttocks to exaggerate her hourglass figure, liposuction, and breast augmentation.
