Kim Kardashian’s refrigerator must-have: ‘activated charcoal’ lemonade??


Kim Kardashian has lost a lot of weight since giving birth to Saint West. By her account, she’s lost more than 70 lbs. She says she’s been dieting (Atkins) and working out (??), and some/many believe she’s also been helped out by a plastic surgeon along the way. I do think Kim has worked hard and stayed on her diet, but it wouldn’t surprise me if she supplemented her workouts and diet with some lipo here and there too. Kim’s body is a mystery wrapped in an enigma, covered in glitter-dust and heavy contour makeup. No one knows for sure.

Still, Kim wants to tell everyone about how she really achieved her dream body-after-baby. On her subscription app, she decided to list her current food/drink obsessions. The post is called “’The Foods I Always Have in My Fridge!” No soda or beer! Hm. Some of her list:

“When it comes to what’s in my fridge, I always try and keep it fresh, simple and clean (everything is always lined up perfectly, LOL!). I’m really dedicated to my Atkins diet right now so it’s all about staying healthy and lean. These foods and drinks are great for snacking and keeping me energized throughout the day.”

She is ‘obsessed’ with Diet Peach Snapple because ‘it’s sooo refreshing and perfect during this hot summer!’ She also likes Pressed Juicery Activated Charcoal Lemonade, writing: “I’m not super into the whole ‘juicing’ craze, but Pressed Juicery’s fresh drinks taste amazing and make the perfect snack!’ she wrote. She added Charcoal Lemonade ‘is rich in vitamin C.’

And then there is Bio-K Probiotic. Kim wrote: ‘I love that it keeps both my digestive and immune system balanced!’

Kim also named Organic Prairie turkey breast and Sargento string cheese as some of her favorite snack foods.

[From The Daily Mail]

This surprisingly short list sent me into a dizzying binge of internet research. Charcoal lemonade? That’s a thing? Apparently, yes, it is. Gwyneth Paltrow even recommended it on Goop last year, just in case you needed a confirmation that this is a stupid fad. Time Magazine wrote about it too – it’s this whole juicing fad where “activated charcoal” juice is believed to absorb the toxins in your body. Some people swear by it, some people are like “nope, nah.” As for Kim’s refrigerator… I’m irritated that she only listed five items that are always in her fridge. What about food for her children? What about… yogurt, or ginger ale, or chicken (chicken is always in my fridge, in several different forms), or an emergency supply of chocolate?

PS… these photos are from yesterday, Kim and Kanye were wandering around New York. I’m not a “cover yourself, chica!” kind of person, but I am tired of seeing Kim’s breasts this week. All she needs to do is wrap that coat/robe around herself a little bit and it would be fine.

    Why is she wearing Harry Potter’s fancy robes with bike shorts, bedroom shoes, and a boustier? How does that make sense? Why not put on a black body con dress (like that one from a few weeks ago) to show off that weight loss and look 100x better, sexier, and not like she accidently walked into the Magical World of Sexy Harry Potter?

    • Ursaline says:

      This looks like one of those horrid outfits that her husband put together.

      • SM says:

        exactly. Someone should tell her that her efforts to lose weight is going to waist. Her hideous outfits are blocking my vision, I can not see her hot lean body past though those crazy outfits. That’s probably the only way to try and fire her stylist husband

      • Snappyfish says:

        @ursaline it’s funny you say that because it truly looks like whoever is styling her must hate her because she always looks…well styled by someone who hates her

    • Jen43 says:

      Not to mention it’s been hot and humid in the NY area.

    • ronaldinhio says:

      This looks like she got dressed from a thrift reject bag in the dark

  2. Jess1632 says:

    I saw her last night as I was at the Kanye show in Toronto and she was in the crowd on ground floor w us. She looked amazing! I was surprised and impressed she looks better in real life(??). Still shocked I was a foot away from her

  3. Kitten says:

    I once knocked over a mason jar of activated charcoal, which then shattered on my tile countertops. Took me about two hours to clean that shit up.
    Never again with the loose stuff, only capsules now.

    Activated charcoal is not the miracle that some would have you believe but a capsule or two with a lot of water while you’re drinking is pretty solid hangover prevention.

    Also, Kim looks really pretty here despite that awful outfit. Her hair looks really nice all soft, wavy and loose like that,

    • FingerBinger says:

      What does activated charcoal do besides treat hangovers?

      • Kitten says:

        Well the claims are that it reduces bloat and ADsorbs (not ABsorbs) toxins. So if you typically get an upset stomach after eating for instance, fried foods–if you take the capsules an hour or two before the meal it will help to prevent an upset stomach.
        But they also caution against people taking it if they’re on medication as the charcoal could potentially absorb the meds as well.

      • Vizia says:

        It acts as a filter. Many coffee makers come with filters containing activated charcoal, and charcoal filters are also used in salt-water aquariums. I’ve heard that one of the reasons the water is so clear around many volcanic islands is the cooled lava/burnt material acts as a giant charcoal filter.

        Also used in hospitals as an emetic. Blech! But effective.

      • Gross. We force feed it to patients who have taken overdoses if they present within an appropriate time frame. It basically acts as a binding agent for some (not all) compounds. however, just drinking it recreationally probably does very little. These two look like they’ve been on some crash diet, and mark my words, these things never end well.

      • maria 2 says:

        you can “bleach” your teeth with it. It disolves stains (please google it, my english ain’t good enough to explain the specifics). I usually take a bit of powder and half a drop of water, puts in on my teeth for about 20 minutes and then brushes. It really does work 😀

      • Kate says:

        It’s what the ER will use for overdoses and poison ingestion.

      • ria says:

        Like all the others here said it binds toxins quite effektiv and is a pest to get rid of when patients in their aggressive state kick it out of your hand and everything in 4 meter radius is sprinkeld.

    • pinetree13 says:

      While Charcoal can be used as a stomach cure for certain things….DO NOT EAT IT ON A REGULAR BASIS. Charcoal is a confirmed carcinogen (aka it causes cancer).

      Remember how there were articles about grilled meat greatly raising your risk of cancer? Well they think the culprit is those black lines of burnt food or charcoal residue on the food. Yes, just the RESIDUE on your food is shown to increase your risk of cancer. So actively ingesting the stuff straight? Really not a good idea at ALL>

  4. Whatabout says:

    I’m guessing this is all paid endorsement stuff. Since they are cracking down on Instagram ads, I’ve noticed lots of shilling on snapchat.

    • QQ says:

      Same Here, They are all sponsored crap

      Also on topic, If She closed her robe how are we all gonna see her nipples you guys 🙄🤔

      • Whatabout says:

        I don’t care about the nipples being shown, it’s the bike shorts that are shameful!

    • Lilacflowers says:

      And how much does Snapchat pay her?

      • Lyka says:

        Well she doesn’t get paid by Snapchat. She gets paid by the brands she’s hawking on Snapchat. The FTC is just all over Instagram right now for unmarked ad content.

        But actually, she probably *does* get paid by Snapchat, too.

    • swak says:

      So, if they are cracking down on advertisements on Instagram, Snapchat can’t be far down on the list to crack down on for unmarked ad content.

    • FuefinaWG says:

      So … people pay for KK’s subscription app in order to get commercials? Hmmmm …
      This world is effed up.

  5. MexicanMonkey says:

    Oh my God. Activated Charcoal is disgusting! We use it in the toxicology center to give to patient who have just ingested large amounts of harmful drugs. Be it an accidental overdose or suicide. It doesn’t suck toxins out of your body, just your digestive system. So unless you drink it immediately after every meal I don’t see how that works.

  6. Nimbolicious says:

    The public wearing of bicycle shorts for non-bicycling should be punished with a hefty fine.

    And Kanye rightly looks like he’s praying for an invisibility cloak.

    • Beatrice says:

      Thank you for my laugh of the day!!

    • ladysussex says:

      I thought those were Spanx! LOL Silly me I assumed she got pap’d in her driveway checking the mail or something. I thought she was wearing a house coat and slippers with her Spanx on. I can’t believe this is her actual outfit to wear in public.

  7. Scootypuffjr says:

    At this point, I think Kim purposely dresses badly for publicity’s sake. Bad publicity is good publicity, as they say.

  8. liz_bee says:

    I follow her on Snapchat–at first it was to watch videos of North, but she’s not in the snaps as much lately. Anyway, Kim has been snapping her workouts almost daily. She works closely with one or more personal trainers, she’s out there doing sprints up a hill in her neighborhood, doing machines in they gym…she works hard for her body. Maybe there’s some surgery in there too, but still, I don’t doubt that she’s really put in work. It helps when you have personal trainers, personal chefs, and a ton of money to pay for whatever healthy foods you want.

    • swak says:

      Well, anyone can snap a workout, put it up on Snapchat and proclaim they are really working out. So I take with a grain of salt what anyone puts up there – you don’t see the whole story, just snips of it. She could be working out hard, I just don’t take Snapchat as proof.

  9. Olga says:

    As far as I know activated charcoal is not for regular use especially when you’re on a diet. Basically it is used for the effective treatment of food poisoning or alcohol poisoning and may cause dehydration.

    • swak says:

      Thought that was what they used in ER’s when stomachs are pumped for whatever reason.

    • MinnFinn says:

      This! She’s an idiot! Drinking that lemonade every day will cause vitamin deficiency because the activated charcoal interferes with your digestive system absorbing desirable nutrients.

    • ladysussex says:

      Not sure on this so I’m hoping someone out this knows. Wouldn’t activated charcoal also absorb/remove minerals and some vitamins from food and/or your stomach?

      • Olga says:

        Absolutely. Not only vitamins, but all the nutrients too, so it’s def very bad decision to use activated charcoal on regular basis. I’m sick of this family promoting some crap again and again…

    • pinetree13 says:

      Not only that, but it’s a known carcinogen so not exactly something you should be consuming deliberately on the regular…

  10. Bridget says:

    Here’s why I will never believe Kim achieves her figure through diet and exercise: the Kardashians latch on to one fad and “miracle” product after another (waist trainer, anyone?). Not to mention all the paid product mentions.

    • Cali says:

      Yes, it’s crazy – they will promote anything for a buck it seems. They jump from one thing to the next.

      I’m glad instagram is cracking down a little. I am SO sick of the stars pushing the crap they don’t really use. Like the blanket coverage of 310 shakes, the light up teeth whitener, the fit, fab fun boxes, the waist trainers, the gummy hair and nails thing, the flat tummy tea, and a million other products.

    • ladysussex says:

      I think the whole purpose of someone doing a “What’s in your fridge” story with KK is simply so she has a vehicle to promote products by name so she gets paid (and gets the products free).

    • ronaldinhio says:

      My brother lives in the Eastern Europe. His wife and sister ( from there ) all wore post pregnancy corsets to help get their ribs/waist etc to shrink & move back into place. They did it as all the friends and family had always done so and thought I was mad because I thought it was rubbish
      They now all have their proper waists back. I don’t know if the corset worked or if they were genetically blessed but after I’d had my 3 kids my waist never really came back. I lost the weight ( I weigh 4kg less than pre my first pregnancy ) but was much more straight up and down than I was before.
      If I had known then I might have given it a whirl
      Everything Kardashian is smoke and mirror with a sprinkling of truth IMO

  11. Moon says:

    Those shoes are fug

  12. MinnFinn says:

    I swear Kim has her own bizarre version of occasionally not revealing too much. In this set of photos for example she thought ‘hmmm, today I want pap photos of my nipples but not my ass because like that would be too much’. So to that end she wears a transparent top but covers her ass in the Jolly Green Giant’s baseball jacket.

    It really is mind boggling that breast and ass implants plus an amateur sex tape are literally responsible for making the Kardashians multi-millionaires.

  13. LuluPolly says:

    What a bizarre collection of clothing. She looks like a wizard trying to pass as a Muggle.

  14. amadabasura says:

    Charcoal only works on molecules within the gut. It will not cleanse your blood or liver because it never enters the blood stream. It binds poorly with alcohol and toxins produced in the liver by the breakdown of alcohol are not in the gut so charcoal does not help a hangover. Charcoal does not differentiate between toxins or nutrients. If it is in the gut and binds with charcoal, it is going out with the stool. It will be amusing to watch all of the dummies declare the benefits of having your nutrients removed to improve health and well being though. Just as effective as squirting yourself with a squirt gun.

  15. I feel like we need to talk about Kanye’s satin sweatpants here too. I mean, he looks like a typical Chav on his way to the corner store to buy smokes, only in higher-end fabrics.

  16. whatthewhat says:

    Sensing some sexism and envy over Kim’s self control 🙂 funny stuff

  17. SKF says:

    This is officially the worst outfit she’s ever worn. What the ever loving fug is that???? Bike pants, furry slides, a denim bustier from the 90s with sheer boob cups and a weird sporty maxi cardigan??? And none of the shades match, it’s all mis-matched backs and dark blues. Beyond terrible. WHY?? From the neck up she looks great! Why would she put this awful outfit on??

  18. Heat says:

    I have to wonder what thoughts led to this outfit choice. Here’s how I think it may have gone:

    “Like, omg, I really should work out today; I’ll put on these biker shorts. People will need to see how small my waist is; I’d better wear my corset. See-thru bra? Why not, youguyz? Ugh, maybe I’d rather go back to bed…maybe I want people to think I just got out of bed. Kanye, pass me my slippers and robe.”

  19. jeanpierre says:

    I see You kim with the lemonade mention.

  20. Pmnichols says:

    Not a huge fan of the outfit but I think she looks great. Her body looks amazing and I like her without make up and heels. She looks refreshed.

  21. benchwarmer says:

    “Kim’s body is a mystery wrapped in an enigma, covered in glitter-dust and heavy contour makeup.”

    Reminds me of RHOB Erica tagline:
    I’m an enigma wrapped in a riddle and cash.

    Which sounds nice but wrapping an enigma in a riddle is like wrapping a wash cloth in a towel.

  22. benchwarmer says:

    I lol at “tired of seeing Kim’s breasts this week.” I’m tired of all the black and tight clothing but hey I’m a prep.

    So chicken is always in your fridge. Chobani plain yogurt is always in mine. I’m surprised she drinks all those juices, even diet, it’s not good for you, that fake sugar substitute stuff. I’d rather eat a fruit than drink one. I drink water, flavored seltzer or green tea.

  23. Tw says:

    Her outfit cries “drug fueled walk of shame”.

  24. Nicole says:

    Ain’t no way in hell she has not had the gamut of plastic surgery.

    • Snowflake says:

      No offense, but you’re a fool if you believe she lost the weight through diet and exercise. People, I mean, not specifically you. She’s redone her face several times with plastic surgery, why wouldn’t she do a body makeover with plastic surgery? 30 sec videos on snapchat so her and her trainer friend can get paid. Does not a workout make.

  25. Velvet Elvis says:

    I never in a million years thought I’d ever write these words but I think Kim is looking too skinny. I think she looks better a bit more voluptuous. jmo

    • vava says:

      You must be forgetting about her massive FAKE rump.
      She’d look good if she’d cover up the nipples, wear proper pants/skirt, and put on some cute shoes……………no furry slippers. Ditch the weird coat, too.

  26. L says:

    If we could just stop. Calling juice a snack that would be great. On A sidebote I was doing a cleanse and I did take food grade bentonite tonight clay that does the same thing similar thing then charcoal

  27. Jwoolman says:

    Activated charcoal capsules are good to have on hand if you’re having problems with gas in the digestive tract that is actually painful. It absorbs gas molecules and hangs onto them (many tiny cavities in the carbon matrix) as the charcoal passes out of the body. Not an instant cure, but it can help.

    I also suspended some from opened capsules in water to stuff into a cat (via dropper) who had licked some of her topical flea medicine off herself by various contortions and obviously was not enjoying the taste… The charcoal must have gotten the taste out of her mouth pretty well, judging by her behavior and the fact that uncharacteristically she didn’t try to kill me when I was administering it. Then I called the vet, who told me that this was a great thing to do even though she thought the amount of the stuff ingested was well within safe limits. It’s actually the carrier of the drug that tastes awful, apparently. The bottle says not to be used for poisoning, I assume because a human would have to swallow an awful lot of capsules, opened and made into a slurry for quick action. A separate stash of the powder would be more useful for the first aid kit.

    But activated charcoal will also absorb some medications and nutrients, so it should be used cautiously and not along with something you want your body to hang on to… I wouldn’t drink something that claimed to have it in it on any different schedule than I would the capsules, just to be safe, in case there is enough to interfere with supplements and medications. It’s used in the lab as a general adsorbent and decolorizer (because it adsorbs the colored substances in solutions).

    And yes, Kim was just shilling again so who knows if she even uses the stuff. Her list is short because those were the only companies willing to pay her. A normal person would just say lemonade, string cheese, turkey, etc. There is no reason except getting paid to name the brands, there are many good ones in those categories. And you can squeeze a lemon into cold water yourself…
