Kim Kardashian has lost over 25 pounds in four months by following the low-carb Atkins diet, which features lots of lean proteins and fats and plenty of vegetables.

Atkins reps who work directly with Kardashian say the brunette beauty is extremely motivated about her weight-loss goals and can’t wait to regain her pre-baby body. She’s so proud of her progress she posted her first post-baby body photo Oct. 15 (see below).

“Part of her motivation [was] to show people she’s capable of getting back to where she was [weight-wise],” Atkins VP Colette Heimowitz told the LA Times Oct. 15. “She wanted to show the world she can do it. That was her motivation.”

Kim, 33, has been following a nutrient-dense diet consisting of 1,800 to 2,200 calories a day, and has been limiting her daily carb intake to 50 to 60 net grams (i.e., grams of carbs minus grams of fiber).

Kardashian’s daily menu looks like this:

Breakfast: Omelette or Greek yogurt with berries and slivered almonds.

Snacks: One to two ounces of nuts or a guacamole dip with fresh veggies.

Lunch & dinner: A serving of fish, poultry, eggs, or lean red meat with lots of fiber-rich vegetables prepared with olive oil.

Kardashian, who was mercilessly fat-shamed for gaining over 60 pounds while pregnant, has been losing one to two pounds a week since giving birth to daughter North West in June 2013.

“Our goal was to pace her weight loss,” said Heimowitz. “[Kim] has lost a lot of inches and she’s able to work out. The scale weight isn’t generally what we focus on. That’s when people get discouraged. [Atkins is] a lifestyle. Her body will take her where she wants to be.”…

“The Talk” host Sharon Osbourne joined “Extra’s” Mario Lopez at The Grove to talk about how the Atkins diet has changed her life, and she opened up about her relationship with husband Ozzy Osbourne.

The Atkins Ambassador revealed to Mario that all is well at home, and Ozzy has been sober for over 90 days, following his admission that he had fallen off the wagon.

On the key to their 30-year marriage, Sharon explained, “It’s acceptance of who that person is. If you think you’re ever going to change anyone, you’re not going to do it. You love them for who they are.”

As for Sharon’s health, she is down 23 pounds. “It’s the first summer in a long time that I’m healthy. Ozzy and I were at the beach this weekend, jogging up and down the beach. That would never happen to me, not until I found Atkins.”

She continued, saying Atkins isn’t just about eating meat. “It’s about old ideas, old perceptions. This diet is fish, chicken, meat, vegetables, certain fruits you can have. It’s changed my life for the better!”
