Kim Kardashian has lost 42 pounds since her baby Saint West's birth on December 5, 2015. She, along with her husband, rapper Kanye West has been heating up the social media with her regular and really hot photos of continuous weight loss (like we didn't expect that!). The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has been following a planned diet to shed the baby weight and we're here with the same for you.
This isn't the first time she went for diet. She was introduced to the Atkins diet by her father back in her college days. Kimmy followed the same after giving birth to her daughter North West and is continuing the same with her baby boy Saint.
Kim's nutritionist Colette Heimowitz says that Kim includes protein in her diet to keep herself fit and satisfied.
Kim loves cheese as much as we all do, but she has some rules (unlike us, of course!) She is allowed four ounces of cheese a day by her nutritionist. Other food items with restrictions, such as sour cream, butter, etc. are given only for a satisfactory purpose.
A low-calorie diet leaves you hungry all the time, and you need to not be hungry in order to be successful," says Heimowitz. "When you have adequate calories, protein, fat, and high-fiber carbohydrates [in your diet], you won't be tempted to add something." It is more important not to cut calories because a baby needs all the nutrients from the mother during breastfeeding.
Most women average between 1,800 and 2,200 calories during breastfeeding, and Kim is doing the same.
Her Atkins diet doesn't allow Kim to have these foods- Sugar, sweets, cakes, crackers, white flour, white rice. She uses healthier replacements when she has cravings for the restricted food items.
It's healthy to shed one or two pounds even if you're not a mom, but more than that can affect Kim's milk supply. Her weight loss isn't linear. She's losing two pounds per week on an average in a month instead of two pounds per week.
