Kim Kardashian needs a rumor-vanishing version of "Ghostbusters." The woman known primarily for her body (and her skills in spending money) had to go on the attack after rumors that she had turned to plastic surgery rather than the Atkins diet to shed her post-baby weight. Now she's fed up with rumors that her famous derriere is actually the result of butt implants, reported On the Red Carpet Feb. 21.
"I'm seeing all these nonsense tabloids claiming I have butt implants-injections. Get a life! Using pics of me 15lbs skinnier (before I had my baby) comparing to me now," scolded Kim.
"Anyone who has had a baby knows how hard it is to lose weight (especially the last bit of weight) & your body totally changes!" she added.
And to prove that her distinctive derriere has not changed, Kim posted a photo of herself on Feb. 21 with labeled "#FlashBACKFriday."
Kim is so famed for her booty that she even stars in a series of fitness derriere DVDs, such as "Kim Kardashian: Fit In Your Jeans by Friday: Ultimate Butt Body Sculpt."
Attacking tabloids who also reported that she had liposuction, Kim noted:
Making fun of me pregnant & making fun of me trying to lose weight now shame on you.
I'm not perfect but I will never conform to your skinny standards sorry! Not me. And BTW I've lost a lot so far & I'm proud of that! Don't give young girls a complex!
Kim has repeatedly emphasized that she's worked hard for her weight loss and inimitable derriere. Her high fat low carb diet follows the Atkins guidelines: It's a ketogenic approach designed to boost fat-burning.
How much has she lost? In contrast to Jessica Simpson, who repeatedly has declined to state precisely how much weight she's shed in her second voyage using Weight Watchers, Kim told Jay Leno that she was "50 pounds down."
Since that appearance, she's lost more weight and reportedly wants to lose more prior to her wedding.
Kim's low carb diet includes "proteins like fish, poultry, and lean meats; healthy fats like avocado, nuts, and olive oil; lots of colorful vegetables filled with antioxidants and fiber; and low glycemic fruits like berries—essential foods for maintaining energy," said Atkins diet expert Colette Heimowitz in an E News interview.
Included are three regular-sized meals (and your choice of two snacks) every day," added Colette, author of "The New Atkins for a New You Cookbook: 200 Simple and Delicious Low-Carb Recipes in 30 Minutes or Less" (click for details) and "The New Atkins Made Easy: A Faster, Simpler Way to Shed Weight and Feel Great -- Starting Today."
