How low can you go? With Kim Kardashian, the answer is "very," and the question applies both to her plunging neckline and her very low carb diet. Kim shared how she lost an additional seven pounds after tweeting her weight loss woes, reported E News on Aug. 25.
Although Kim lost more than 50 pounds with the high fat low carb Atkins diet after having her baby girl, she decided it wasn't enough after viewing photos of herself from five years ago. "Ughhhh I am 20 pounds lighter here! This was just 5 years ago!" she posted as a caption for a "flashback Friday" image.
Kim decided to boost her weight loss by cutting carbohydrates even more on her ketogenic diet. "When I was tweeting about it, that was the start, and I started that day. I did really low carbs, and I got it together," she revealed.
Noting that she has lost six to seven pounds since her tweet, Kim stayed true to Kardashian tradition by choosing a dress designed to show off her assets. The extremely low-cut gown also showcased her derriere, reported the Huffington Post on Aug. 24.
For those who criticize Kim for spending too much time obsessing about her weight and too much money on exclusive attire, the designer dress diva has an answer. She's just doing the "right thing" by focusing on what she knows how to do. "I don’t like it when people kind of dabble into things they shouldn't be," explained Kim.
Apparently she feels that she should be dabbling with her diet. So just what does her Atkins low carb diet involve? In an exclusive interview, Atkins chief nutritionist Linda O'Byrne explained that it is "low carb, high fat and moderate protein."
A common misconception: It's a high protein diet. Wrong, says Linda. The ratio usually consists of five percent carbohydrates, 25 percent protein and 70 percent healthy fats during the Induction phase.
"However, this really depends on the individual and can be adjusted while still remaining in ketosis. Typically, most people will go into ketosis with a daily carb intake of around 20 grams," added Linda.
