New mom Kim Kardashian revealed the secret to her post-baby body in a tweet recently, noting that she had been following the Atkins diet.
The tweet was a response to a fan’s inquiry into how she had lost the baby weight in four months.
The Atkins diet casts out high-carb and processed foods in favor of lean meat, eggs, dairy, fresh fruit and vegetables. The body burns fat faster because carbs aren’t such a plentiful source of fuel.
“She wanted an effective and balanced way to lose the baby weight,” spokesperson for Atkins Nutritional Jennifer Livingston said. “She’d done Atkins before and knew it worked."
The diet worked for Kardashian, who needed a balanced diet to be healthy for her child and keep up her milk production.
According to Livingston, Kardashain has been eating fish, lean cuts of beef, leafy greens, broccoli, spinach, nuts, avocados and olive oil.
On Saturday night, the 32-year-old stepped out to have dinner with a friend, wearing skinny jeans and a loose fitting white top.
Her more daring post-baby outfit included a plunging black gown during Fashion Week in Paris.
