Kim Kardashian West Reaches Her Goal Weight

Kim Kardashian West lost 60 pounds recently, Entertainment Tonight pointed out.

That's been largely thanks to the Atkins diet.

But what exactly does she eat?

Kardashian's nutritionist, Colette Heimowitz, recently told Business Insider about her effective diet.

Here's a sample week in the life of dieting like the reality star.

Day one starts off with scrambled eggs.

Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with turkey sausage topped with smoked Gouda 4 oz Greek yogurt with 1/3 cup fresh blueberries

Snack: Atkins Harvest Trail Dark Chocolate Cherry and Nuts bar

Lunch: Grilled lime chicken over a spinach salad with feta-ranch dressing

Snack: 1 medium carrot with 4 tablespoons of hummus

Dinner: Lemon-tame halibut with sautéed green beans

Total Calories: 1504

Net carbs: 40.2

Though she does watch her calories, she doesn't totally starve herself.

Heimowitz says that's part of the plan.

"The beauty about Atkins is you don't need to do it with very low calories," Heimowitz said to Business Insider. "You can eat 1500-1800 calories a day, so you're not starving .

"You're fortified and never hungry, so you have less of a tendency to want to cheat," she said. (Although you'll notice there's no wine on Kardashian's plan, which might be a bummer to anyone who loves a glass of Pinot Noir with dinner who's trying to eat exactly like her.)

Day two starts with oatmeal.

She eats carbs, even though she's watching them. It's just in doses.

Breakfast: Rolled oats and pecans topped with strawberries

Snack: ½ cup sliced red peppers and 5 cherry tomatoes with 2 tablespoons of Italian dressing

Lunch: Pesto-topped salmon with a Caesar salad

Snack: ½ peach with a ½ cup cottage cheese

Dinner: Grilled chicken with asparagus and tomato salad

Total calories: 1530

Net carbs: 38.9g

Heimowitz points out that on the Atkins diets, it's about net carbs.

Jeff Spicer/Getty Images

She said that you take your total carb count and subtract fiber to get net carbs. That means that you're not aiming for zero carbs; rather, you're trying to eat as much high fiber foods (like fruits and vegetables) as possible.

She even has a coffee frappé for a snack.

Starbucks

Breakfast: Hatch green chili, cheese and egg bake with arugula and 1/8th wedge of a large honeydew melon

Snack: Vanilla coffee frappé

Lunch: Zucchini noodles with spicy chicken sausage

Snack: Atkins Harvest Trail Vanilla Fruit and Nut bar

Dinner: Grilled chicken with Cali mac and cheese

Total calories: 1699

Net carbs: 38.7g

But that's not prescriptive, necessarily.

Heimowitz says the diet could be tailored to a variety of preferences — whether it's eating Mediterranean style, Paleo, or vegetarian, so long as you're tracking your net carbs.

"You could make any diet work for you by personalizing it to find a way a way of eating that you could live with for the rest of your life," she said. "That's the secret to long term success you make it a lifestyle." That could mean making room for a frappuccino, or something else entirely.

There's even fried eggs on the diet — Heimowitz is a huge proponent of three core rules: eat adequate protein, high fiber carbohydrates, and eat healthy fats.

Breakfast: 2 fried eggs, 2 ounces of turkey sausage, and 1 thin slice of Nature's Own whole grain bread

Snack: ½ cup Greek yogurt ¼ cup slivered almonds ¼ cup blueberries

Lunch: 4-6 oz ground beef (hamburger), 1 leaf of lettuce, 1 small tomato, and ½ of an avocado

Snack: 10 black olives and 1 ounce of cheddar cheese

Dinner: 4-6 oz. pork chop, 1 cup green beans, 1 cup spinach,1 tablespoon of red onion, 1 tablespoon of Green Goddess dressing

Total calories: 1720

Net carbs: 44.6g

Here's day 5.

Breakfast: Chicken chorizo and cauliflower sauté with cheese and salsa

Snack: ½ small apple and 2 ounces of cheddar cheese

Lunch: Turkey burger with chipotle aioli, tomato and pickled onions

Snack 2: Atkins Harvest Trail Dark Chocolate Sea Salt Caramel Bar

Dinner: Slow roasted lemon-rosemary chicken with asparagus 1/3 cup wild rice

Total calories: 1561 calories

Net carbs: 39.8g

You'll notice there's not an emphasis on going gluten free here. She ate bread on one day!

Andy Kropa/Invision/AP

"The [trends] that worries me [are] the ones that aren't based on scientific evidence," Heimwotiz said. "Like, everybody seems to be gluten intolerant all of a sudden. While [grains are] very high in carbohydrates and you need to control you need to control their intake, not everybody has gluten enteropathy. So that's a trend that I think will fade because it's not based on much science except the fact that it's a good idea to control grain consumption because it's so high in glycemic impact."

This is day 6.

Breakfast: 2 deviled eggs, 2 ounces of ham

Snack: 3 tablespoons of peanut butter with 2 celery stalks

Lunch: 3 ounces canned tuna, 1 tablespoon of mayonnaise, 1 stalk of celer, 3 romaine lettuce leaves

Snack: 3 tablespoons of hummus, ½ cup green pepper slices, ¼ cup sliced carrots

Dinner: 4-6 oz steak, ¼ cup sautéed onion,s ½ small baked potato, 2 tablespoons of sour cream, 1 cup broccoli, 1 tablespoon of butter

Total calories: 1547

Net carbs: 42.1g

Heimowitz points out that some people may have side effects when they start off on Atkins.

Asta Thrastardottir/Business Insider

"There's an adaptation phase so when you're switching metabolism it takes about four to five days for the body to make a switch from the sugar metabolism to a fat metabolism," she said to Business Insider.

She said that during that time, some people may feel leg cramps or have a "Dragged out feeling." She advises people to either up their calories slightly or to have a bit of salt — not too much, but a bowl of bone broth, chicken broth, or miso soup, for example. She even said you could add a little salt to yoru food "to taste" — a stark contrast from how Gisele and Tom Brady's diet forbids you from eating any salt other than special Himalayan rock salt.

This is the seventh day of the plan.

Breakfast: Crunchy tropical berry and almond breakfast parfait

Snack: 2 whole wheat crackers with 1 oz. pepper jack cheese

Lunch: 6 oz chicken breast, 2 cups romaine hearts, ½ cup chopped red bell pepper, 1/3 cup edamame, 2 tablespoons of creamy Italian dressing

Snack 2: 1 ounce of cheddar cheese and 2 celery stalks

Dinner: 5 ounces of salmon, 1 1/3 cups steamed cauliflower, 1 tablespoon of butter, 2 cups of mixed greens, 2 tablespoons of ranch dressing

Total calories: 1641

Net carbs: 36.1g

And though Atkins has helped the star shed pounds, what works for Kim Kardashian may not work for everyone.

Andreas Rentz/Getty Images

Though Atkins is extremely popular, remember that our bodies are different than that of Kim Kardashian and everybody reacts to diets differently. And perhaps more crucially here, Kim Kardashian is a celebrity...and the majority of us are not. Celebrities have access to lots of things we don't, like personal chefs and more flexible budgets to permit them to spend more on groceries. However, this diet seems a little bit easier to follow than Gisele and Tom Brady's highly restrictive, specialized diet! You can eat nightshades, at the very least.
