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.

If you want to hear about her workouts and her healthy diet, then

.

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. Have you ever tried a macrobiotic diet?

Veggie burgers and soy cheese are not macrobiotic. Macrobiotics eat no processed foods.

She looks great and I wish I had a personal trainer too.

she is absolutely a size 2. if you saw her in person youd be shocked by how tiny she is. having curves make her seem "bigger" but she is by no means big. her waist is 100% 26 inches. what are we in high school with the "shes so insecure she has to lie", "im so sick of celebrities" blah blah ? .. she has no reason to lie- she looks fabulous.

there are no more standards for women's sizes anymore. some many places vanity size, which i love!!! but who knows maybe in dresses "somewhere" she is 2. who cares? she looks great, but she is lying about something because trust me, if she is spending 4 hours in the gym she is doing something terribly wrong, she would be a stick figure if she was eating macrobiotic and working out that long...all you need is at least 30 minutes 5 days a week. anybody can do it with a little effort.

She looks good. It's nice to see someone with hips and booty like me! I would love to look like her for summer!

this reminds me of when unflattering pictures of Jennifer Love Hewitt surfaced and she retaliated saying she was a size 2.... you don't have to be a size 2 to look good, so I don't know why everyone puts so much emphasis on a NUMBER!

Whatever size she is, she looks great.

I doubt she was even a 6 before that! We have the same measurements, but I'm shorter, and I'm an 8... She had to be an 8 or 10 with those hips....

i'd have to see her in person, because i have to say i've been very surprised by the super small statures/frames of celebrities i've seen in person. but i'm 5'3'' and size 2, and i don't look anything like kim...just sayin!and i agree with spectra - does she plan to keep this up forever? even if she is a 2 now, i can't imagine that she could maintain that size without a huge amount of effort.

Maybe size 2 in dresses or top. I'm a size 4 in dresses and tops, but my jeans usually is a 6 or 8, depending on the brand/designer, and I don't have her curve (I have flat ass). I think she looks good the way she is, and was surprised at the extra attempt to be 'thinner.' But good for her to shape up and eat healthier.

Karl Lagerfeld said that after a bunch of his models went on macrobiotic diets, their skin was ruined. If it does have an effect on hormone balances, then I guess that's possible. I'd rather not take that chance.

I agree with laellavita.Any one with a real life couldn't do that.
poptart-princess poptart-princess 6 years
well..... she might be a 2... i mean she is only 5ft 3inches tall... and that's on the petite side and cameras really do distort things. but yeah, it is hard to believe that what with her bodacious booty and all.

I can wear a size 2 in most dresses, but when it comes to jeans I'm a 4 or sometimes a 6 because of the booty. Technically I could claim 2 like Kim, even though I dont wear that size in everything. Just a thought from the peanut gallery.
