How Kim Kardashian Is Losing Her Baby Weight

Kim Kardashian Has Already Lost 17 Pounds, and Her Plan Is 53 More to Go

During a recent live stream session on her app, Kim Kardashian spoke about her postpregnancy health and fitness goals, in addition to revealing that she has already lost 17 pounds since giving birth to her son, Saint, on Dec. 5. It's good to remember that most women drop 18 to 25 pounds during the first month after giving birth (baby, placenta, fluid, breastfeeding, etc.), so Kim is pretty on track with what happens to the body naturally after giving birth.

While live streaming, the post-baby-body whisperer invited Caitlyn Jenner over for Christmas decorating and some deep-dish pizza — though she was unable to partake in the latter — at which point Kim told Caitlyn she gained about 60 pounds during her pregnancy and weighed 190 pounds at the end of her third trimester. "I almost died," she remarked.

Now Kim is hoping to reach her goal weight of 120 pounds through breastfeeding, a no-nonsense diet and fitness regimen, and . . . placenta pills?

In a blog post, Kim explained she starting taking the pills made with her own placenta (shown below) to combat postpartum depression: "I heard so many stories when I was pregnant with North of moms who never ate their placenta with their first baby and then had postpartum depression, but then when they took the pills with their second baby, they did not suffer from depression!" She added, "So I thought, why not try it? What do I have to lose?"

Lastly, Kim said that she plans on lying low and keeping to herself as she embarks on her health and fitness journey. Just kidding. She plans on having a big post-baby-body "reveal" once she's ready — in a break-the-Internet way, one can only assume.
