Kim Kardashian knows how to meet her goals—especially her weight goals.
The star is already back to her size 2, pre-baby weight, but with her wedding to Kanye West less than two months away, she’s gone into extreme dieting mode to drop another 5 pounds. “There is always something you can improve on,” Kim, 33, told OK!. “That’s the motto that my family and I have.”
Since giving birth to baby North last June, Kim has adhered to the Atkins Diet, a high- protein, low-carbohydrate diet plan that helped her shed 50 pounds. “Atkins is not a 1,200-calorie diet that leaves you hungry,” Colette Heimowitz, author of The New Atkins Made Easy, tells OK!. “People have reported losing up to 10 pounds in two weeks. Some could lose up to 14 pounds in two weeks,” she says.
In preparation for her May 24 wedding, Kim is eating lean protein and “only green vegetables because they have more fiber,” says a source. “Her assistant has a bag of celery sticks with her at all times.” Kim’s also downing water in place of her favorite beverages. “She doesn’t really drink, but she likes a glass of red wine with dinner and coffee in the morning,” says a family source, “but her Atkins mania won’t allow her those anymore. She won’t even have a sip.”
Here’s a typical day of eating for Kim K, who fitness expert Jay Cardiello estimates weight around 125 lbs these days:
On Atkins, an ideal breakfast for Kim would be an egg- white vegetable omelette paired with a half cup of high-fber, low- gylcemic berries.
A good lunch is 4 to 6 oz. of grilled salmon, asparagus with butter and a mixed salad with creamy dressing.
Lean protein, like grilled chicken, is the centerpiece of Kim’s dinner. The meal is rounded out with broccoli and a salad dressed with olive oil and lemon.
As for snacks, Kim chomps on celery, pepper slices or cucumber spears dipped in hummus in the mid-morning. A few slices of rolled- up lean smoked turkey breast help beat the munchies before dinner.
