Kim Kardashian doesn't want to be selfish about keeping her post-baby body slim-down to herself. So she's kindly sharing her weight loss success with new selfies, reported Us Weekly on Jan. 5.

In particular, Kim wants to make it known that her 50-pound weight loss is helping her get "right for the new year," as she wrote on the caption for one photo highlighting her bust and booty.

Another shot featured her taut tummy, following up on a previous selfie labeled "No Filters," reported UK OMG on Jan. 5. But those photos don't mean that Kim is done with her Atkins low-carb, high fat, high protein diet.

Kim told E News, "I still have about 10 pounds to go."

Her Atkins diet, about which she tweeted "I luv it," is supplemented by her workouts, which she's keeping up in 2014, reported E News on Jan. 3.

So just what exactly is involved in that derriere-defining, tummy-toning Atkins diet? Colette Heimowitz, vice president of nutrition at Atkins, told E News that it includes between "1,800 to 2,000 calories per day."

For Kim, a typical day on the high fat, high protein, low carb Atkins diet resembles this:

  • Breakfast: 2 egg omelet with cheese and spinach
  • Snack No. 1: Hummus with veggies (cucumber, red pepper, broccoli)
  • Lunch: Grilled salmon, asparagus, side salad with creamy dressing
  • Snack No. 2: Turkey & Cheese Roll-ups or Greek Yogurt with slivered almonds & blueberries
  • Dinner: Chicken breast, broccoli, side salad with olive oil dressing

Despite its reputation as featuring protein-only, the Atkins diet requires dieters to consume 12 to 15 net carbs (total carbs minus fiber) that need to come in the form of vegetables, according to Colette.

It also emphasizes healthy fats such as "olive oil, avocado, seeds/nuts and their oils and butters." The combination of protein and fat facilitates fat-burning through ketone production. Learn more by clicking here for an interview with Colette about the newly revised Atkins diet.
