Kim Kardashian weight loss: How the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has dramatically slimmed down and toned up with gruelling exercise and health regime
Kim Kardashian West has transformed her famous curves and sizeable assets after significantly slimming down within the past year.
The mother of North, Saint, and Chicago is known for showing off her figure on social media, but her physique has been noticeably slimmer in recent weeks.
In fact, Kim revealed this summer she’s dropped a whopping 20 pounds and now weighs just over eight stone.
So how did she do it? Take a look inside Kim’s strict fitness regime and health plan:
During an interview with E! News in August 2018, Kim said she works out for over an hour every day, using heavy weights after enlisting the help of a bodybuilder to train her.
She explained: “I work out about an hour-and-a-half every single day, heavy weights. I don’t do a lot of cardio. But honestly, like even my mom pulled me aside maybe a week ago and pulls me in a closet and is like, ‘What are you doing?’ She says, ‘I don’t care what, I just need to know.’
“I’ve been working out really hardcore with a bodybuilder for one year. September is our one-year anniversary.”
Sharing the extent of her weight loss, Kim added: “I’ve lost 20 pounds and I’m really proud of that. I was almost 140 forever and now I’m like 116 and it just feels good.
“I didn’t see results right away, but when you stick with something and you’re consistent, you will. So, I love it.”
Kim’s personal trainer Melissa Alcantara told People that the reality star wanted “more muscle and bigger hamstrings”, but that she “loved her body and her hips”.
Melissa trains with Kim at her home six days a week at 6am, focusing on a different part of the body each day of the week – with three of them devoted to training legs.
Kanye West’s wife also said she’s become a lot healthier in recent months, cutting back on sugar and being more aware of what she’s consuming.
Kim added to E!: “I don’t really eat sugar the way that I used to. It doesn’t really do it for me.
“I’ve kind of been trained to just eat a lot healthier than I used to. I used to just eat anything and everything and I loved it,” she said. “And so I really do control that now… I don’t want to ruin it by just stuffing my face.”
Meanwhile, her PT revealed the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star will, in a typical day, eat oatmeal pancakes for breakfast, chicken, sweet potatoes and vegetables for lunch, and fish and vegetables for dinner.
