Kim Kardashian has been rapidly losing weight in the four months following the birth of daughter North West, that fans have begun to question how she's done it on Twitter.
"I've actually been doing the Atkins diet & luv it," she wrote on Sunday.
Kim isn't following the diet entirely though, she skipped the first two weeks, aka the "induction" phase, because she was nursing her baby. She also got the approval of her doctor to go on the diet.
"After she delivered her baby on June 15, she wanted an effective and balanced way to lose the baby weight, a spokeswoman with Atkins Nutritionals told New York's Daily News. "She’d done Atkins before and knew it worked, so once she got the approval of her doctor, we connected her with our Vice President of Nutrition Colette Heimowitz, who counseled her directly.”
The diet focuses on a very low carbohydrate intake in favor of meat eggs dairy vegetables and fruit. By not eating carbs, which are converted to fat, the body burns stored fat instead.
