Kim Kardashian wants her pre-baby figure back

As if poor Kim Kardashian hasn’t had enough scrutiny over her figure in the last year, the new mum is feeling even more pressure to bounce back.  

Showing off her post-baby body last week, she looked amazing after ditching the baggy tops for a figure-hugging jumpsuit.

But while Kim, 32, is putting on a brave face for the paps, insiders say she’s facing a ‘frustrating’ struggle to shift the final 10lb of baby weight – and is taking desperate measures that experts warn could put her health at risk.

The reality star’s thought to have put on 3st 8lb while pregnant with baby North.

But after working with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson since the birth in June, she’s estimated to have lost an impressive 2st 12lb through healthy eating and cardio workouts.

But now her weight loss has plateaued.

Insiders say that in the past fortnight Kim‘s suddenly become desperate to lose the baby weight even faster – with friends convinced she’s feeling the pressure over joining baby daddy Kanye West (and his sexy dancers) on his world tour, which starts in two weeks.

We’re told Kim – who was cruelly dubbed ‘a whale’ during her pregnancy – is now taking drastic diet measures by cutting out all carbs, including pasta, rice and potatoes, and even trying juicing detoxes.

A family insider says: ‘Kim was eating healthily and doing a lot of postnatal yoga.

‘But after seeing how slowly she’s losing weight, she’s become frustrated.

‘She’s now working out on this high-tech elliptical machine [cross trainer] and loves doing aerobics.’

While Kanye, 36, is supporting her, he’s not putting any pressure on her.

‘He loves her curves and couldn’t care less if she ever gets her pre-baby figure back,’ our insider reveals.

‘But Kim, of course, doesn’t agree.

‘She wants to get back to her pre-North size 2 [a UK size 6] and has been telling people she’ll be back in swimsuit shape by Christmas.’
