Kim is still trying to lose some pounds

Kim Kardashian has admitted that nasty comments made about her appearance while she was pregnant left her distraught.

The reality star was criticised over her weight and style choices when she was carrying baby North West and it really got to her, leaving her ‘completely destroyed’.

Since giving birth to her daughter in June, Kim has been slimming down using the Atkins diet but admits that losing the pounds hasn’t been her priority.

‘I haven’t exercised a whole lot so far, just because I’ve been busy with the baby and I don’t want to leave her,’ says Kim, 33.

‘I still have some [baby weight] to go. Atkins worked for me and I don’t feel tempted to eat a bunch of junk food. It’s just about staying healthy – it will come off.’

Kim’s dress sense seems to have changed slightly since becoming a mum and she admits that fiancé Kanye West, 36, has been influencing her style – and so has baby North.

‘You want your guy to think you’re really hot. I’ll put something on and he’ll [Kanye] say, “No, that doesn’t look good”, and I’ll trust him,’ Kim tells Sunday Times Style.

‘I want to dress a little lighter colour-wise. I think North looks cute in light colours, and then I want to wear light colours.

North doesn’t typically wear pink, though. She wears mauve or blush, not, like, typical baby pink.’
