Kim Kardashian says she’s doing the Atkins diet, is she really going without karbs?


As I’ve been saying, Kim Kardashian looks like she’s lost almost all of the “baby weight”. To my eyes, she’s pretty much back where she was before her pregnancy. We all have theories as to HOW Kim lost the weight though. Some of us think that there might have been some postnatal lipo. Some of us think that Kanye put her on a diet. Some of us think that Kim just lives in Spanx. While all of that could be true, I think we do have to acknowledge the possibility that she lost the weight the old-fashioned way: nursing, exercise and a reasonable diet. LOLJK.

Over the weekend, Page Six reported that both Kim and Kanye took a “Barry’s Bootcamp class” in Sherman Oaks. I would imagine that it’s some kind of hardcore workout? Ugh. According to witnesses, “They were being very encouraging with each other. They arrived a few minutes late, and Kanye was on his phone. He also stepped out of class early for another phone call, but Kim stayed the whole time before leaving through the back exit.” Well, it’s nice that they tried to work out together but Kanye still had to take care of some business.

As for diet… Kim just revealed she’s on Atkins. Oh my lord. Kim tweeted a response to a fan when asked how she’s losing weight: “I’ve actually been doing the Atkins diet & luv it.” Atkins is that diet that was incredibly popular in the late 1990s and early 2000s. I didn’t know people were still doing it, honestly. It’s high-protein, and low to no carbs. Like, instead of eating a baked potato, just eat a lot of bacon. Or something (I know that’s not really what it is). I know CB hates it when I’m violently hyperbolic, but I would kill myself if I had to adhere to Atkins. A life without carbs is not a life worth living. Anyway, according to Us Weekly, Kim is “eating lots of lean proteins, healthy fats like nuts and avocado, carbs, fruits, veggies and cheese. She wanted to be a healthy, nursing mom and not toxify her milk with her diet or lose weight too quickly. She’s been doing Atkins since her doctor approved it at the end of June.” That actually sounds… smart? And healthy? What in the world?

    I just don’t care anymore. So overloaded with KK stories these last few weeks.

  2. blue marie says:

    Why does she feel the need to talk about her weight, she looks fine and doesn’t need to put a number on it.

  3. silvia says:

    She didn’t want to ‘toxify her milk with carbs’, but I guess that loading it with ketones which are a byproduct of Atkin’s diet seemed OK.
    She’s just so incredibly dumb, it’s not even funny.

    • jane16 says:

      Exactly. The Atkins diet is horrible. Very hard on your organs with the ketones. Everyone I’ve ever known who was on it gained back more weight than they lost once they went off it. And for a nursing mother? Good God.

      • Liz says:

        You are misinformed. Ketones are in fact beneficial to the heart and brain. In fact, due to the high fat nature of breast milk, babies go into ketosis when they are nursing! You are thinking of ketoacidosis, which only occurs in type 1 diabetics and has nothing to do with nutritional ketosis.

  4. Dana says:

    Atkins is great… Until you stop and gain 95% of your weight back.

    • Snazzy says:

      Exactly!!! Better to do a healthier, more balanced approach (the body actually needs carbs) – but then again, look who we’re talking about!

    • IzzyB says:

      The Atkins diet is severely unhealthy and has been linked to cardiac arrests, heart attacks, and cancer.

      You will lose weight but it won’t be healthy.

      The human body needs carbohydrates. If you don’t take any in, your body will break down stored carbohydrates which can cause the release of carcinogenic compounds stored with carbohydrates, and improper breakdown and side products can cause arrhythmia.

      Sorry, health rant. Can’t stand this diet.

  5. DanaG says:

    I guess that means she didn’t get her much angled for weight loss contract. LOL She looks like she did pre baby now and still wearing the wrong size clothes. LOL

  6. Rachel says:

    She definitely hasn’t lost all the weight but she looks great to me. People are really awful when talking about her body.

  7. Dawn says:

    She tells so many lies who knows what the truth is. It would be like her to pronounce that she is doing the Aitkins diet while eating a piece of bread and see nothing wrong with it.

  8. Andrea says:

    I’m torn on this. After finding out that I was at risk for polycystic ovarian syndrome and pre-diabetic I went on a very low carb/low sugar diet about 6 months ago. I lost 30 lbs and I’m now wearing a size 2 again like I did as a young 20-something. It worked. The side effects though can mean that your breath is horrible (ick) and you can lose your hair. It’s hard bc I have not looked this good in years and I’ve gotten my blood sugar to a healthy place but my normally thick, long hair has been thinning from the diet. Now, I’m slowly working on finding that happy medium. But as a kick start to a serious Heath overturn and a real “take stock” of just what sugar is doing to your body it does work.

    • Elisabeth says:

      I have PCOS and South Beach diet is a better choice then Atkins. We need carbs and protein but in moderation.

      As far as Kim goes…what is being done about that vacant look in her eye? my daughter is 4 years old and I’m still buzzing that I had a baby. She looks fucking miserable.

    • Alexandria says:

      Try taking food grade diatomaceous earth. My hair was falling out (health reasons) and within 2 weeks (taking 3 tablespoons a day in water) my hair has stopped falling out. It’s mostly made of silica which is essential for healthy hair and growth. Food grade only though, that’s my tip 😊 and I’m NOT an ad

      • blue marie says:

        You can really take that? I was told to feed it to my dogs to help with fleas, roaches, etc? I didn’t realize it was safe enough for human consumption. Nice to know

      • gogoGorilla says:

        Yikes. I use D. earth to kill fleas.

        Biotin is supposed to be great for hair loss. I also take fish oil daily (the liquid kind–Carlson’s) and that seems to help a lot.

      • Alexandria says:


        Yes. Research it. It is safe for human consumption but the general public is not aware of it. There are many benefits besides the side effects of the silica for hair growth. Younger skin, lower blood pressure and cholesterol, removal of mercury and heavy toxins from the blood, increased energy and lowered appetite.

        It’s amazing…it’s the original “god made dirt, dirt don’t hurt” LOL Although you’ll never find it advertised by mainstream (western media) because it’s inexpensive and lots of big companies would go out of business 😉

      • Hautie says:

        I started taking Biotin back around last Christmas. I do 3000 milligrams every 3-4 days. Consistently ever since. And holy cow, my hair and nails have greatly improved.

        My hair just started to not feel as thick. I have always had a crazy head of curly hair. But I had notice it was thinning. Which was most likely from me getting older.

        But I had to do a big cut on my long hair back this past Summer. Because it was obvious where my new thick hair was at. And now it is back to being that crazy head of hair! The plus is my nails are crazy strong now.

        And all I am using are the cheap Biotin vitamins from Dollar General.

      • Audrey says:

        I also take Biotin. My postpartum hair loss had me honestly crying. My sister suggested biotin and it’s filling out again. Thank god, my hair line was moving back and everything :/

      • UsedToBeLulu says:

        Silica is an important nutrient!

    • GiGi says:

      I have PCOS, too (and IBS, and psoriasis) – all in very mild forms. I’m reading Wheat Belly and it is literally changing my life. Within the last 3 days of being just wheat free (no other restrictions), I’ve lost weight, am sleeping better, am less bloated and am more (sorry ladies) regular. Bread is my crack and I thought it would be awful, but it’s been really easy.

      For the PCOS/hormonal stuff, I also have been taking Saw Palmetto, Cinnamon and Turmeric for about 6 months – it’s helped so much – look into it! Fermented Cod Liver Oil is also great – but nasty… you have to be committed with that one, lol!

      • Andrea says:

        Thanks for the tips ladies! This is all new to me and it’s been interesting finally paying attention to my body and making changes. I’m 30 years old and I want a child so my changes were both for my own health and what that means for my future. Thank you for all the tips.

      • Camille (TheOriginal) says:

        I have PCOS and IBS as well, and my family and I have cut right down on wheat/gluten and dairy and things are definitely improving for me. Definitely think it is worth making the change.

      • Liz says:

        I went on keto 2 years ago for PCOS (less than 20 grams of carbs a day, very high fat.. I get almost all my calories from bacon, butter and coconut oil.) It cleared up my moderate-to-extreme acne ENTIRELY normalized by cholesterol levels, and helped me get down to my goal weight that I was never able to reach with any other diet. Keto is not for everyone, but if you have hormonal problems or any kind of insulin resistance (carbs make you tired and gain weight) keto can literally change your life.

    • Sachi says:

      An endocrinologist diagnosed me with PCOS and prescribed metformin + spironolactone as well as Vit. D. I didn’t get my period for a whole year, so the goal was to lose weight + have a regular period. I was ovulating (my family Dr. showed me the lab results), it was just the period that wouldn’t come.

      My diet was also modified to low-sugar, low sodium and more protein from yogurt and vegetables. The doctor told me to limit my meat and eggs consumption. He also limited my fluid intake to 4-5 glasses of water a day.

      My lab values were already great. But it was the weight that had to come off. I did Zumba 4x a week over the past year but I was always so bloated and my weight didn’t change. I’ve lost 25 lbs. since I started taking the meds, continuing with Zumba, and sticking to a diet plan. I’ve scaled back on the Zumba the past 3 weeks but my weight hasn’t gone up. If anything, I’ve lost another 4 lbs. last week just with proper diet.

      I also have a cheat day: I eat more than I do once a week. Not binging and not fatty, calorie-laden foods, but I’ll eat rice or pasta. The metabolism gets “tricked” into thinking that your diet hasn’t changed and it’s not gonna go into starvation mode as long as you don’t shock your body into limiting your food intake right away.

    • Petee says:

      Look up Journey Essentials vitamins.They are great.

  9. paola says:

    She really is the worst advertisement for a diet.

  10. Frida_K says:

    Those jeans make her look like she’s packing a full diaper.

  11. ag-UK says:

    My friends did it, lost weight but… one high cholesterol/blood pressure.

  12. Hello Catty says:

    Omg, she has such a peculiar, old ladies ass. Gross.

  13. HH says:

    I take it the Quick Trim contract ended?

  14. m says:

    My friend did Atkins all summer, didnt break it once, and ended up losing 25lbs on it. Unfortunately it started to mess with her heart so she had to quit and shes gained ten back in the past month. Atkins is one of those stupid ass diets where you gain it all back the second you quit. Dieting is all about teaching yourself new habits that you can stick to your whole life, Atkins is just a way to lose weight fast if you have something you need to be skinny for…like getting Kayne to look at you again.

  15. I Want To Live In New York says:

    Ok Stay with me, Do butts like this exist in the real world?

    Here in New Zealand I have never seen anyone with a butt like this. I was thinking that maybe it was because most of our population is predominantly white or Polynesian, and a butt like that is not really an aspect of those body types.

    Man that seems really racist. I am generally curious though. Why would you make yourself a butt like that? Is it a cultural thing? Attention seeking?

    • YummyMummy says:

      I think some people do have natural bubble butts. I have no idea why anyone would desire a larger ass

    • msm says:

      I don’t consider curiosity racism. I am black and an owner of such a bubble butt. I don’t think about it constantly or see it as good or bad, it’s just a butt. My (white) husband loves it, though, so go figure. I do know that a lot of Black and Latino men love the big butts, and that may be because (in my opinion) that’s what they were used to seeing (moms, aunts, grandmothers, etc.) I’ve always assumed that Kim got the big butt to better attract Black men, since that is who she predominantly dates.

      • Andrea says:

        I’m a Sicilian American white woman and I’ve always had a large, round butt. It doesn’t go away even if I’m very thin. It’s just my body. I’ve gotten a lot of attention from men throughout my life both black and white bc of it. I have to embrace it bc there is nothing I can do about it. This is how I’m made.

        So yes—-it’s real. And even some white women of different cultural backgrounds can have it.

      • MonicaQ says:

        Same. My white husband was a boob man. Was. Kills me every time when he’s like, “The joys of booty!”

      • I Want To Live In New York says:

        OK thanks. I never thought about her trying to maybe attract Black men.

      • Pia says:

        @Andrea – ciao! I’m full Italian heritage-wise, half being Sicilian as my mother is from Siracusa. Oddly enough, her sister has a huge butt but my mom doesn’t and I don’t either. I ended up with huge boobs (my mom is only an A cup and I’m a DD lol) and a small butt with skinny legs. Somehow the butt gene skipped over us and my aunt got it all lol.

    • Dommy Dearest says:

      I’m white and I have a pretty nice butt however it’s been partly due to squats, climbing stairs and running. Kim’s butt is a combo of fat injections and implants. If you google Kim before you’ll see that back in 2006 she started with not much at all back there but fast forward to 2010 and she has that diaper butt.

    • Petee says:

      Look up old pictures of her.She was really pretty and didn’t have that butt.She has had fat injections.She always said she admired Jennifer Lopez.But that is J.Lo’s butt.All hers.Kim has made a mess of herself.

    Atkins means nip, tuck, and suck in her case.

    Where’s Kaiser? Hey Kaiser, another crime scene photo with skinny jeans caught in the act. Book ‘em.

  19. MourningTheDeathOfMusic says:

    I am reading the Atkins book right now. Years ago I read the Carbohydrate Addicts diet. I think I want to read that book again.
    My family has a history of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, etc. I know for diabetics, you have to cut most of the carbs out of your regular diet. So I think I’ll do that, but not to the extreme as Atkins.

    Has anyone else noticed how monocromatic Kim’s outfits have been lately?

  20. bettyrose says:

    Sarah Palin did Atkins while in the campaign trail and it possibly contributed to her inability to answer questions coherently. Not that KK ever needs to sound intelligent.

  21. lorelei says:

    Atkins is extremely unhealthy. Not necessarily the low to no carb part, but the part in which you can (and are encouraged) to eat as much fat as you might crave. Sausages, bacon etc. It’s a mess on you Cardiovascular system.
    And for the life of me can’t imagine it’s ok to do it while breastfeeding.

    • Liz says:

      High insulin from eating too many carbohydrates is what causes heart disease. As long as you are not eating carbs, fat cannot damage your heart. Science has proven this, and it is coming into the mainstream nutritional advice every day now. Please educate yourself.

      • Josephine says:

        There is significant scientific evidence that a high fat diet leads to artherosclerosis and high blood pressure. Studies show that even a single high-fat meal can make you more reactive to stress.

        The American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association recommend a diet that is modest in fat.

        And of course there is a huge difference between heart-healthy fats and those that are not so healthy, like fatty red meat and bacon.

        Any diet that suggests extremes is suspect. Eat a variety of foods, not too much, and stay away from processed. It’s not magic, and there is no need to eliminate any food group — just eliminate all of the non-food people eat!!

      • Liz says:

        I will explain why that study is wrong and the true cause for heart disease. All this can be verified with just a little research. The process by which plaque is deposited on the arterial walls is only now being understood. It is caused by high carb + high fat in the diet. It is the carbs that are the culprit for actually causing the damage. High levels of insulin from eating carbs and sugar basically scar your veins and arteries. Your body uses fat to repair this damage. Saying that fat causes atherosclerosis is like believing that calling the cops is what causes robberies! Carbohydrate consumption, not fat is the real root cause of heart disease. This study did not distinguish between people eating just high fat, and those who were eating high fat AND high carb. Therefore, it is flawed.

  22. janie says:

    I think Kim will do or say anything to be in the news several times a day. Just go about your life Kim, without news alerts! What did she do with all her heels & plunging necklines… I know? Beyonce doesn’t dress like that. I so wish this woman was happy in her own skin.

  23. Audrey says:

    Uhhh if she’s really breastfeeding, she should not be cuttong out anything. I’m breastfeedong my 6 month old and my doctor told me not to cut out anything cause my lo needs a variety of nutrients. My only dieting should be portion control.

    I lost all the weight with a healthy, balanced diet, exclusive breastfeeding and walking my daughter for cardio. Not that hard and no magic involved :)

  24. Mandy says:

    I know what you mean. I shamefully admit that carbs is a very BIG part of my diet! My favorite thing in the world is rosemary bread with olive oil!

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      There is nothing shameful about carbs.

      Also, I would eat the crap out of some rosemary bread with olive oil.

      It’s really not about “NO CARBS!”, carbs are necessary (particularly if you work out a lot), it’s the source of the carbs that is the issue.
      Carbs from refined sugars, starches, white bread and rice etc = bad.

      Complex carbs from vegetable and unrefined naturally-occurring sugars, and high-fiber grains = good.

      Even then, a little sugar now and then won’t hurt you. People are crazy with their diets.

    • Zoid says:

      I couldn’t give them up either, but I think that people over think their diets anyways, honestly. There’s sooo much contradictory information out there, and every couple of years there is a new diet and a new demonized food that is bad for you. Carbs, wheat, fat, eggs, protein, alcohol, sugars… All at some point weren’t considered good food. And then… gasp! They really weren’t so bad after all. Just staying away from processed foods seems to do the trick for me, since they stuff sugar into everything nowadays.

  25. CarolinaBelle says:

    Weight loss is still weight loss, even if it leaves your body in a biohazard bag… ;)

  26. Mar says:

    I find her so sloppy- gross and self absorbed. Not sure why there is still hype over her

  27. palermo says:

    I am Sicilian and also have a “high” butt. However my thighs are blended into the butt, so it doesn’t look like a loaded diaper like the fake Kim’s does. She is too short to pull that off and had a much better figure before she started getting those butt injections. Kim is still wearing her clothes too tight, when you have those lines in your jeans that means they are too small!

  28. Josephine says:

    Does anyone really think she didn’t just do some lipo??

  29. Dommy Dearest says:

    Celebitchy! Are you going to cover the story of Kim using a bag to shield her face while she was driving with her kid in the backseat?

  30. Truthteller says:

    You’re allowed to have baby weight 3 months after having a baby–but why is this article lying and calling her almost back in shape. She looks like every other woman who has had a baby and she does not look in shape what so ever. Those clothes look gross on her.

  31. courtney says:

    I too am of Sicilian Heritage but have a small butt. once an attention ho always an attention ho. cutting carbs while nursing is a bad move it depletes the milk supply of Iron which is a key nutrient for brain development. she’s self sabotaging her baby of needed nutrients

  32. Sheila says:

    The ONLY thing she has to talk about is her weight loss, body and looks besides that, she’s one idiotic blank. LOVED to read on Radar this pas weekend that the KUWTK ratings are down and that both Kim and her Mom’s Q ratings are WAYYYYYYYYY down, like this will hit them where it hurts, their pocketbook, because the Q ratings are what advertisers, ect. use to determine who is worth more bang for their buck. LOL, LOVE IT, the K family downfall has begun!!

  33. I don’t know about you but I think that whoever her trainer is, is ripping her off. She just needs to learn what and how to eat and get some exercise.
    I don’t have any trainer and I lost 20 pounds. I wish you help Kim

  34. kitty-bye says:

    Whatever her size, wearing something that fit & didn’t look like she exploded out of it would be refreshing if we have to view it.

  35. courtney says:

    she is a dumb ass with money anybody that knows anything knows nursing/pumping moms need carbs for adequate milk production

  36. ParisPucker says:

    Kanye’s douche-face kills me every time… poseurs procreate..

  37. sunnydaze says:

    I wonder where tracy anderson has been in all this….

    Seriously, does anyone know? I always find it amusing when celebs name drop…and then nothing…

  38. Bizzyb says:

    She has a gross, frumpy, dumpy body.

  39. hownowbrowncow says:

    She’s back to her pre-baby weight – heavy.

  40. Norman says:

    I wonder if Kim konsulted her doctor?
