Kim Kardashian Slims Down With a Macrobiotic Diet

Kim Kardashian has been on a health kick recently, eating better and upping her workouts. In a recent issue of Us Weekly, this E! reality star explained how she slimmed down from a size 6 to a size 2 (not that she needed to) for filming her three-part fitness DVD series titled Fit in Your Jeans by Friday ($15 each). Kim hasn't always been a fan of the gym — she loves her feminine curves. She realized she had to work out in order to keep them. Maintaining a certain weight won't do the trick — she has to do exercises that tone and sculpt her body.

To tighten and tone, Kim worked out daily for at least two hours, and sometimes did two workouts in one day. Each workout started with a peppy warmup, then she moved on to cardio using five-pound weights. She was a fan of doing squats and lunges to target her lower body. She finished with ab-toning exercises and stretching.

As for her daily diet, she used to indulge in burgers and fries, but now she avoids heavy carbs. Kim eats macrobiotic foods including tofu, veggie burgers, soy cheese, and quinoa. A macrobiotic diet is low in fat, high in fiber, and is predominantly vegan. It includes beans, nuts, a small amount of fish, local fruit, and emphasizes whole grains and vegetables, so it's super healthy. Not only did this type of diet help Kim slim down, but it's also believed to help balance female hormones to help with menopause, premenstrual syndrome, and prevention against breast cancer and endometriosis.
