How Kim Kardashian regained sexy bod just months after giving birth

21 October 2013 / 3 years 1 day ago

Remember when Kim Kardashian was called a flower-patterned sofa by netizens during her pregnancy?

Well, look who's having the last laugh now.

According to an article in The New Paper, the US reality TV star, 32, who gave birth to her first child, daughter North, in June is the talk of the town after posting a sexy swimsuit selfie on Twitter on Wednesday with only the hashtag "#NoFilter" as a caption.

The picture, which shows Kardashian, bum to camera, in a teeny white bathing suit, has received over 824,000 likes and many comments of the "OMG" and "I'm speechless" variety.

It was so hot that her US rapper-boyfriend and baby daddy Kanye West immediately tweeted back that he was "HEADING HOME NOW" (caps his, not ours).

It seems like Kardashian is just keeping a promise she made before she gave birth to be "the sexiest hot mum", a quote which aired on a recent episode of her TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

Judging from the photo, it won't be long before she gets to keep the other part of that promise too - she also said that "as soon as this (pregnancy) is done, I want to do Playboy or some naked shoot".

Kardashian is crowing over critics who savaged her during her pregnancy for weight gain that, according to more extreme reports, was up to 30kg in the first five months alone.

Her friend, model-actress Molly Sims, told that the criticism affected Kardashian so much that it made her "nervous and then her tummy hurt",

Kardashian tweeted earlier this month that she has been on the famous lowcarb diet and that she "luv(s) it". Atkins changes the balance of carbs, fat and protein in your diet and claims to help you lose up to 7kg in two weeks.

She is also a Barry's Bootcamp regular and lugged boyfriend Kanye West to a session earlier this week.

They started bright and early at 6.30am for a weight and cardio training class before moving on to the treadmill and more weight training later in the day.

Kristi Vacanti, the owner of the Los Angeles pilates studio that Kardashian goes to, told E! News that pilates "enables (Kim) to get a total bodytoning and calorie-burning workout in under an hour".
