Kim Kardashian looks amazing just three months after giving birth to her daughter North West, and there’s one reason. The new mom isn’t going crazy with extreme weight loss measures, but she’s focusing on specific foods that are really delivering results!
According to the new OK! magazine, Kim is reportedly tried cutting out all carbs, but Kim has now found “carb cycling,” — cutting back on eating carbs every other day — is easier to stick to and better for breastfeeding Nori.
“She’s really focusing on foods high in fiber from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., like whole-grain breads, cereals, brown rice, fruits, and vegetables,” a source tells the magazine.
“She is snacking twice a day on toasted pita bread with two tablespoons of reduced-fat hummus,” says the source. “But on days when she is limiting the complex carbohydrates, then she will swap pita for things like celery, carrots, cucumber, and hummus to dip into the hummus.”
Kim’s trainer, Tracy Anderson, explained that a diet of healthy foods is much better for a nursing mom than extreme dieting. “If you’re nursing, this is not the time that you can really diet because you have to keep enough calories so you can have a healthy milk supply. I think that a trend I’m seeing is a lot of women will nurse and diet and they don’t realize that it’s not okay for the baby because you’re not giving the baby breast milk that is full enough.”
