Kim Kardashian is in the news again. But this was expected as she is the new mommy (second time around) who has gone into hiding. She now wants to get back in shape and ensure that she remains mentally fit after a difficult pregnancy. So how’s she doing all that? What were the problems she faced and what unique solutions did she devise to deal with the problems? Let’s find out.
Kim gave birth to a baby boy named Saint West on 5th December, 2015. She revealed his name on her app and added that he weighed 8 pounds, 1 ounce. She also moved up her due date from 25th December because of health problems that were already there like gestational diabetes and her increased risk of preeclampsia and placenta accreta (which she had last time when she was pregnant with North West). Despite all this, she gave birth to Saint in a normal delivery and wasn’t forced to opt for C-section.
Going into Hiding
NY Daily News reported that the reality TV star had gone into hiding. She will not be showing herself until she gets back in shape. She is residing with her husband (Kanye West), her daughter (North West) and her mother (Kris Jenner) at her mom’s house.
Repeating the History?
Many of her fans believe that the beauty may repeat the history. She went into hiding after giving birth to her daughter North West back in 2013 and came back with a bang (after 6 months). Her comeback was through the December issue of Us Weekly in which she showed off her post baby body in a white bikini. The headline of the magazine expressed her feelings and it was “My body is back! No gimmicks, no surgery!”
An inside source revealed that the fitness routine and eating plan of the diva would be tougher this time around. It stated that the plan would be more “intense” this time and added that the stunner will begin a rigorous workout routine and diet in six weeks time. She plans to have a trainer visit her daily so that she can get back in shape quickly with strenuous exercises.
The diet secrets of the entrepreneur are not out yet but we do know that she has a personal chef cooking her meals these days who is just working for her benefit.

The Weight Gain
Kardashian West has previously revealed that she gained 60 pounds during this pregnancy and weighed 190 pounds by the end of her third trimester. She also made quite big statements like she did not like this pregnancy, she was feeling like a whale and she almost died (due to the weight gain and health issues, we suppose).
The voluptuous beauty has the aim of losing at least 70 pounds. This will help her weight to come down to 120 pounds which is four pounds less than she was when she got married to Kanye West.
ABC News recently reported that the mother of two has already shed 17 pounds of excessive weight in a week’s time. The credit of this weight loss goes to adopting healthy eating habits and breastfeeding Saint.
Recently, her mother told her that she was looking much better to which Kim replied that she is feeling much better too. It’s good to see that the weight loss process is helping Kim stay healthier.
Her Opinion on Hiding
In response to the fact that she is hiding from the world, the Keeping up with the Kardashians (2007-Present) participant said that it’s not about how she looks without makeup and sweats, but it’s about having some time where she is not bothered about posting something about herself on the social media. (It’s your choice dear, but we would like to add that your fans are really missing you.)
The raven haired beauty also admitted that the recovery time after this pregnancy is harder but she is determined to get through it. (That’s the spirit!!!)
US Magazine reported that apart from healthy diet and regular exercise, the successful author is also taking some additional measures to stay healthy. One of such methods is her decision to eat placenta pills – the placenta is freeze-dried and converted into pills rather than being fried. She never considered it in the past but she is trying them out for her own well being. (Her sister Kourtney Kardashian tried them too.)
The TV personality got inspired for eating placenta because she heard a lot of stories when she was carrying North. The stories were about mothers who got into post pregnancy depression after their first born, but they did not have to go through the misery second time around because they had the placenta pills. She also accepted that she tried it because she had nothing to lose by eating them.
Why Kim is eating Placenta?
Kim wanted to avoid the baby blues and the best way to do it was to eat the dark purple pills made by her hormones for her body’s recovery. She also read a lot about moms who said that the pills made the healing process much easier after they had these pills which boosted her trust in them.
Results of Eating Placenta
The result of this additional health measure is that the new mom is feeling very energized. She is showing no signs of depression and whenever she takes one pill, she has a huge surge in energy levels which makes her feel healthy and good from the inside. She is even recommending these pills to new moms who are thinking of trying them out. (Wondering whether to follow her lead? Here’s a useful link on whether one should try them or not.)
