Kim Kardashian looks amazing after losing 56 pounds on a low-carb ketogenic-style diet, but humblebragged that she needs to lose 20 more pounds to slim down her "huge" butt and hips.
Kardashian vowed to begin a "no-carb" diet to slim down and regain her svelte pre-baby body.
“Just need to get down to my weight a few years ago," Kim tweeted Aug. 5. "Not gonna complain anymore. Starting diet today! No carbs, crazy workouts.
Can't seem to shake this last 15 to 20 pounds of baby weight. No more excuses. my baby is 1 year old! I'm not gonna call it baby weight because that's an excuse. I just gained weight and that's it. Why is it so much harder to lose after baby though!!"
Kardashian also lamented that her body has changed after she gave birth, saying her hips and butt "are huge now." As it is, Kim was never super-skinny, even before she had a child.
Despite her humblebrag laments, Kim has proudly flaunted her hot post-baby body in countless Instagram bikini selfies.
Kim Recently Boasted She Weighs 125 Pounds
This is the third time during the past month that Kim has complained about feeling fat. Ironically, the 5-foot-3 Kim had boasted on a recent episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" that she weighs 125 pounds — five pounds less than her pre-pregnancy weight.
However, that episode was filmed several months ago, and Kim has apparently gained some weight recently. Still, there's no denying she looks fantastic following her dramatic post-baby weight loss.
Kardashian lost 56 pounds just six months after giving birth (in June 2013) by following a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic-style Atkins diet that limited her daily carb intake to less than 60 grams. Kim said she also worked out almost every day, combining strength-training, lots of squats and cardio exercise on the treadmill and elliptical trainer.
The low-carb, high-fat ketogenic and Atkins diets are known for producing rapid weight loss because they force your body to burn fat (instead of glucose) for fuel, according to the book Keto Clarity. The ketogenic and Atkins diets are extremely low in carbs, very high in fat, and moderate in protein.
Ketogenic Diet Spurs Weight Loss, Starves Cancer
While Kardashian's star status has raised the popularity of the Atkins and ketogenic diets for weight loss, research indicates these LCHF diets have many different health applications, including reversing type 2 diabetes, preventing epileptic seizures, curbing Alzheimer's and managing metastatic cancer.
Dr. Thomas Seyfried of Boston College, told me the ketogenic diet beats chemotherapy for almost all cancers. Dr. Seyfried says the time has come for the medical community to publicly acknowledge the viability of the ketogenic diet as an inexpensive, non-toxic way to treat cancer.
"The standard of care has been an abysmal failure for cancer," said Seyfried. "The ketogenic diet may one day replace the standard of care for most cancers. To those who doubt me, I say: 'Prove me wrong.'"
