Kim Zolciak credits a low-calorie diet, cardio workouts, and diet pills for her incredible 50-pound weight loss just two months after giving birth to twins. Zolciak also got a tummy tuck, which she showed off her stunning before and after photos.

“I’m ready to put my bikini back on!” Zolciak told Life & Style. “I gained 50 pounds with the twins. I'm between a size two and a size four. All my clothes fit again!"

Kim, who starred on the "Real Housewives of Atlanta" from 2008 to 2012, is the mom of six children: Twins Kaia and Kane (who were born in November 2013); sons Kroy, 2, and Kash, 1; and daughters Brielle, 16, and Ariana, 12.

As she did during her previous pregnancies, Zolciak, 36, shed most of her baby weight shortly after childbirth. In December 2013, Kim made headlines after revealing she was back to a size four just nine days after giving birth.

The busty 5-foot-8 blonde was immediately accused of getting a tummy tuck or other weight-loss surgery, but vehemently denied those rumors. Zolciak isn't a health-food fanatic, and said portion control is what keeps her slim.

Kim, who said she hates to work out, does an hour of cardio exercise evercise daily and takes energy supplements to boost metabolism and suppress her appetite.

“I take Xenadrine for energy to work out and do an hour of cardio each day," said Zolciak, who's married to Atlanta Falcons star Kroy Biermann.
