Kim Kardashian Reportedly Lost 7 Kgs In 3 Weeks To Fit Into Met Gala Dress, Faces Backlash

Society has been setting unrealistic beauty and body standards for women for ages now. And over the past few decades, extreme diets became all the rage. When you search on YouTube, you will find innumerable videos on ‘How To Lose 10 Kgs in 10 Days’. But now many of us know how unhealthy such crash diets are.

But when a person of influence talks about how they lost an unhealthy amount of weight in a short span of time and seem to be very proud of doing so, it becomes a trigger for many others to do the same. And such was done by Kim Kardashian, who is one of the most followed personalities on social media.

Kim set an unrealistic body standard a couple of years ago – a huge butt with a small waist, slender arms but fuller thighs. And now, in her recent Met Gala appearance, she spoke about losing 7 kgs in just 3 weeks to fit into her dress – the iconic dress which Marilyn Monroe wore back in 1962 to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to former US President John Fitzgerald Kennedy.

To fit into the dress, Kim Kardashian reportedly followed the Atkins Diet to the tea. She cut off carbs and sugar completely for 3 weeks, wore a sauna suit twice a day, and ran on the treadmill.

“I did a strict Atkins diet. Strict, strict, strict. It was such a challenge, it was like a role, I was determined to fit it. I would wear a sauna suit twice a day, run on the treadmill, completely cut out all sugar and all carbs, and just eat the cleanest veggies and protein. I didn’t starve myself, but I was so strict,” she was quoted saying.
