Kim Kardashian’s personal nutritionist has revealed the postpartum diet she used to lose 60 pounds after her first baby and 70 pounds after her second.
We all know the 35-year-old reality star is an Atkins devotee, but we don’t know exactly what she eats to stay fit.
In an interview with Elite Daily, Colette Heimowitz says that Kardashian incorporated three key diet tips into her postpartum meal plan.
1. Eat a lot of protein.
2. When you eat carbs, make sure they have high fiber.
3. Make sure you have some healthy fat with every meal.
Heimowitz also suggested regular exercise. The best way to achieve a lean & toned body after giving birth is through a healthy, low-calorie diet and plenty of exercise.
And that’s it!
Postpartum diet meal plan
Make sure you have adequate protein because protein helps you tame your hunger. Try incorporating some of these high-protein foods into your meals.
Lean meats (Skinless chicken breast, Turkey Breast, Steak, Grass-fed Beef, Pork)
Seafood (Fish, Salmon, Trout, Sardines, Tuna, Mackerel, Cod, Haddock, Tilapia, Flouder, Perch, Halibut)
Soy foods like Tofu
Cottage Cheese (Best for a nighttime snack on top of some Quinoa or Buckwheat crispbread). The type of protein mostly found in cottage cheese is casein. Casein is known to be digested by your body slower than other types of protein)
Carbs during your postpartum diet
Healthy Fats during your after pregnancy diet
Dark Chocolate (Just make sure it has at least 70% cocoa)
Nuts (Almonds, Pistachios, Walnuts, Cashews, Pecans, Macadamia Nuts, Brazil Nuts, Hazelnuts & Peanuts)
Extra virgin Olive Oil
Coconuts and Coconut Oil
Kefir Milk & Kefir Yogurt (It’s also loaded with healthy, probiotic bacteria, that can have powerful effects on your health)
If you follow these basic rules, you’ll cut back on sugar and carbohydrates, and you’ll be healthier in the long run.
