Kim Kardashian undoubtedly has one of the most talked about figures in the world. So when her personal nutritionist, Colette Heimowitz, who is also the Vice President of Education and Nutrition at nutrition and dieting company, Atkins, revealed to Elite Daily a sneak peek into the daily eating habits she and Kim swear by, we were intrigued… These are the secrets to Kim’s famously slim waistline.
#1 / She looks for low-sugar options
Heimowitz revealed that her number one rule when it comes to weight loss is to choose foods that have the least impact on your blood sugar. She said that it’s unrealistic to cut out all carbohydrates and all sugar, and that’s okay. “The rule of thumb is to keep sugars at less than five grams per serving and net carbs at 15 per serving.”
#2 / She fills up on protein
The other tip she swears by, that Kim herself factors into her daily diet, is to ensure you have enough protein. Protein helps fills you up for long periods of time and keeps you satisfied for longer, which will help control your hunger.
#3 / She pairs carbs with fibre
The next rule is that when you are eating carbohydrates, pick the option that has the highest fibre content; this will aid in the digestion of the carbs you’re consuming.
#4 / Healthy fats are a must
Also, Heimowitz says it’s crucial to include some form of healthy fat with any meal (such as avocados or small servings of peanut butter), as well as cutting back on sugar and carbohydrates overall.
