Kim Kardashian West Says She "Shrunk" When She Went Off the Atkins Diet

Updated 08/02/17

Kim Kardashian West has been very vocal about her post-Saint weight-loss plan. She keeps to a regular workout schedule (including four-mile runs, jumping rope, and Pilates), and she abides by an Atkins-leaning diet plan, keeping carbs to a minimum and never eating more than 1800 calories in a single day. The aim of the Atkins diet is to switch your body from burning carbohydrates to fat for fuel. Intrigued, we tried to eat like her for a week, though her 6-day meal plan was admittedly difficult and super regimented.

Still, there was something comforting about knowing her sculpted, hourglass figure was the result of putting in serious work rather than solely hitting the gene pool jackpot (though either way, that statement is true). Now, though, it seems KKW has given up the popular '90s diet in favor of something easier—and it works.
