Kim Kardashian on the cover of L&S: her ‘revenge body’, 5lbs in 5 days

Kim Kardashian is on the cover of Life and Style this week with what has to be one of the lamest excuses for a tabloid cover I’ve seen in months. They’re showing Kim in a bikini with the captions “How I Lost 5 lbs in 5 Days,” “Kim’s Revenge Body.” In case you might suspect L&S of running a misleading cover based solely on photos of Kim in a bikini (like OK! did with Khloe’s “Body after Baby” issue) they indeed have an interview with Kim bragging about how she lost 5 pounds in 5 days. Are you kidding me? Now, I could see talking about a 20 pound weight loss over a month (like Khloe did on In Touch) but who cares about 5 pounds in 5 days? Do they think we’re that desperate to lose weight that we’ll shell out the money for this issue to learn Kim’s “diet secrets”? Also, why do they have to paint it like women are getting “revenge” when they lose weight after a breakup? Couldn’t they just be focusing on themselves and feeling better? Kim is all over that, talking about how she lost a whole five pounds for her bikini photo op:

Looking good is the best revenge — especially after a breakup! “I’ve lost five pounds in five days,” Kim Kardashian, who recently split from New Orleans Saints star Reggie Bush, told Life & Style at a Bravada activewear launch party in LA on April 7. “I really wanted to just buckle down and get rid of the tiny bit of excess weight I was carrying.” She also managed to make a statement, sending a message that in the wake of her break-up — and amidst rumors that Reggie had cheated on her — she has more confidence that ever. “It gave me a lot of confidence with my body,” Kim confides to Life & Style. “I work out to feel good about myself — and sure, it doesn’t hurt if someone notices.”

While Reggie spent April 9 and 10 in Las Vegas getting close to country star Jessie James, Kim hit the beach and showed him precisely what he was missing! “I used to be so shy and insecure walking around in a bikini doing shoots and things,” Kim’s told Life & Style. “It’s amazing how much better I feel and I was really proud of myself for just sticking to my diet.” To lose the pounds, Kim cut out all carbs and focused on eating lean proteins, leafy greens, fruit and stuck to her QuickTrim routine. The reality star was also able to add some variety to her workout regimen without too much effort. “I made sure that in addition to my gym workout, I did freestyle cardio outdoors,” explains Kim. “I went running or made sure I did as much walking as I could. I really kept active.””

Ooh she did “freestyle cardio outdoors.” And I’m not buying that Kim was “so shy and insecure” in a bikini before her whopping 5 pound weight loss. We’ve seen her in bikinis for years now and she’s looked anything but shy. She’s promoting herself and that QuickTrim crap with this cover. I hope Life & Style didn’t pay her for this interview. Does she have enough fans who are interested in how she lost a whole five pounds? Also, is this her way of showing Reggie that she’s getting over him – by posing in a bikini on the cover of a magazine? She’s also been tweeting pictures of her boobs and ass regularly as if to say “this is what you’re missing.” It’s kind of sad and desperate, really.

Here’s Kim in Miami on 4/1/10. She must not have liked how she looked in these photos so she lost 5 pounds and posed again. I don’t see the difference. Credit: BRJ/Fame Pictures.

Here’s Kim on March 31:

    whatever, whats going on with tori spelling

  2. sarah says:

    Famewhore or not, she has a beautiful body. The article is stupid though.

  3. EMV says:

    i don’t think she weights 93lbs. she has to weigh less than that if that is really the state of her body. she is probably in the 70lb range if she really looks like that.

  4. ogechi says:

    Truly and sincerely speaking as a lady myself, Kim is beautiful with a body to die for. Am happy for her.

  5. Heaven-bound says:

    Tori spelling is just doing this excessive weight loss for attention, because this is the only way she will get noticed. That also goes for the Kardashian. Zero talent.

    It is incredible how these women but their health at risk just to get attention from millions of strangers. They need to work more on there mental health and “lose the crazy” and not the imaginary pounds they say they have.

  6. frenchie says:

    With a lipo she would have lost it ever faster, dummy !

  7. PJ says:

    It is physically impossible to lose 5 pounds in 5 days! To lose one pound you must burn up 3500 calories, either through eating less or exercise.

    The only way you could lose weight that fast is to eat nothing whatsoever and exercise all the time, for example, walk about 20 hours a day or run for about 7 hours a day for 5 days.

    Just a guess: She ate and drank nothing and took a lot of laxatives!

  8. Jazz says:

    Have these talentless famewhores got Life & Style on speed dial or something??

  9. cprincess says:

    Tell me again what this person is famous for?
    Oh yeah-her father helped get off a wife murderer…
    These people define the word tedious….

  10. Just a Poster says:

    I know Tori is skinny, but I don’t think she is that skinny (at least I hope not) This looks like that freakish Ralph Lauren photo shop ad.

    and *sigh* I wish I had a figure like Kim’s.

  11. freckles says:

    PJ beat me to it… it’s literally impossible to lose 5 lbs of body fat in 5 days, especially when you’re not obese to begin with (and you’re not running an ultramarathon or something comparable). Of course, you can lose up to 8-10 lbs of water weight in just a few days… hmmmm.

  12. Lisa says:

    That black & white bikini is really cute. Where can I get that?

  13. Peach says:

    Word to the other ladies posters who called it. It’s water weight. Which, makes you look less bloated, but means just about nothing.

    Either way I cannot tell the difference between her in this bikini and myriad of other bikinis throughout the past 2 years. Seriously, she looks the same. She looks good, but the same.

    But ahhh! Tory Spelling?!? I hope that’s some kind of photo manipulation. Because that is not good news otherwise.

  14. dread pirate cuervo says:

    The 5 pounds in 5 days comes from getting your period & ending PMS time. Plus, she looks the same in the pics.

  15. padiddle says:

    even if she did lose 5 lbs in 5 days (doubtful, seeing as how she looks the same) that is nothing to promote! That’s incredibly unhealthy and the exact opposite of everything she says about exercising giving you confidence and blah blah blah. I think if you put KK up to your ear you will hear the ocean, because her head is an empty as a conch shell.

  16. kelbear says:

    What a useless story.

  17. Novaraen says:

    *shoves kim in the pool*

    Yeah so Tori always amazes me because she looks like she is made of toothpicks yet she can carry around her kids all the time.

  18. QB says:

    Her body looks nice but is the same from a couple of months ago.Plus 5 pound is not that much , you can loose that in a day and by the other day the weight could be back.

    ps: Is that the picture where her ass spilling out of her bikini because is way to small for her?

    Reggie is not really missin her , in the industry that he is there are about 100 chick that have Kim’s body and even more tone ready to take her place.

  19. skibunny says:

    Her ass and heidi’s boobs are the same….huge.

  20. TG says:

    Kim has a killer body. Even if I had that body, I don’t think I would have the confidence to show it off. But, I do think she tries to hard to be sexy and it is off-putting. Like showing her crack at the beach in a bikini and last year her princess jasmine Halloween costume, where she was practically naked. Just too much try in there and it comes off looking very hoochie. That being said I am a woman and she is definitely dressing for the men so they probably love it.

  21. ! says:

    Wow that sounds really unhealthy. The only weight you lose in that amount of time is usually water, anyway.

  22. Katyusha says:

    Also, it’s impossible to “cut out all carbs” but still eat fruit and leafy greens.
    Vegetables and fruit also contain carbs.

    Sometimes, I think they just make stuff up.

  23. asiont says:

    she reminds me of a duck

  24. hellen says:

    5 lbs in 5 days = diuretics, laxatives, fasting. Amazing. Not.

  25. ligeia says:

    i know someone that lost that much in a week, it was mostly water weight though. doesn’t have to be diet pills or starving, just drink lots of water, eat veggies, skip the pasta and work out every day.

  26. WhoDatNation says:

    Congrats Kim, if losing five pounds gains you the “fame” you seek I’m happy for you. You do have a fab body that’s for sure but why do I keep hearing a Wizard of OZ song in my head when I see you?

  27. bellaluna says:

    Yeah, with the way she’s carried herself in the past, I can totally tell she lacked self confidence. I mean, the way she’s done Playboy spreads; calendar shoots; paraded around in bikinis all over the world; and worn low-cut, skin-hugging outfits for the last I don’t know how many years is a total indication of her insecurity. Bitch, please!

  28. connie says:

    when im really stressed (usuallly between work or man drama) i will literally lose my appetite for days. I get weighed weekly and about a month ago dropped 9 pounds in the span of a week. the following i had gained 3 of it back, but i would attirbute it to the end of the break-up. not neccessarily laxatives or excessive working out

  29. Tru says:

    she’s famous for a sex tape and being a media whore.

    she must have removed 5lbs of her trany make-up.

    what a waste of space, folks have ben complaining about that diet pill of theirs. look for some lawsuits soon.

    who cares, she was passed around when Reggie got her. The media acts like she has an Oscar or something. she can’t dance, act or write a complete sentence w/o incorrect spellings.

    pls let her 15 mins end soon.

  30. Cinderella says:

    She may not have talent, but I can totally see why Ashton would want to hit that.

  31. Scarlet Vixen says:

    I love how on the cover of this ‘celebrity’ magazine Tori Spelling is the most famous and talented one out of all four pitiful fame whores pictured. Maybe we could make up a “which one is more pathetic and desperate?” drinking game!

  32. Mingo says:

    She has a massive a$$ that is unappealing.

  33. LB says:

    5 lbs in 5 days? Did she stop swallowing and/or just take a dump?

  34. Ana says:

    If she ever let herself go just a LITTLE the results would be horrible. But since we all know she doesn’t shy away from surgery it probably won’t happen.

    I’m not a big fan of her body, I think she looks overstuffed…for some reason she reminds me of a sausage with T & A.

    I’m pretty sure she just took a dump to lose the weight.

  35. Kim says:

    anyone can lose 5 pds in 5 days – duh thats just water weight that will come right back. Her and her sisters promote the worst body images because they do crash diets etc. Why dont they promote healthy body image and exercise =(

  36. Dhavy says:

    I’m tired of these drag queen looking Kardashians. These people are not celebrities!

  37. Amy says:

    Reggie has moved on, to other pretty regular women. She should do the same and cease flaunting her body here and there.

  38. onyx says:

    what are these people famous for? Losing weight or dating sports stars?
    wow, their parents really screwed them up if they grew up to be such fame whores. something was lacking early on.

  39. Nicole says:

    She’s in great shape, but does anyone else wonder why she always covers her butt at the beach? She’s definitely not a modest person. And she knows that it’s her best ‘asset’, so why hide it?

  40. Slymm27 says:

    You got to admit the girl has a body to die for. Don’t be jealous.
