Inside Kim Kardashian’s Diet And Exercise Program For 2022 (Plus Fan Theories On Her Secret Surgery)
From wearing sauna suits to eliminating carbs and sugar from her diet, Kim Kardashian took drastic measures to achieve a dramatically leaner physique that was unignorable in 2022.
What began as an extreme diet to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s historic Met Gala gown has continued beyond fashion extravagance – and has spawned wild fan theories of how she’s lost a total of 21 pounds over the past year.
As many prepare to start the new year with a new diet, DailyMail.com takes a look back at exactly how Kim became the ultimate “shape-shifter” of 2022.
Lean Kim: From sauna suits to eliminating carbs and sugar from her diet, Kim Kardashian took drastic measures to achieve a dramatically lean figure that was unignorable in 2022
Kim’s weight loss journey began to fit into Marilyn Monroe’s historical dress for the Met Gala.
Amazingly, Kim managed to lose 16 pounds in just three weeks to fit into the dress Monroe wore when he serenaded President Kennedy for his birthday in 1962.
To do this, Kim revealed that she wore a sauna suit twice a day, ran on the treadmill, eliminated all sugar and carbs from her diet, and consumed “clean” vegetables and protein.
Unsurprisingly, the Hulu star has been heavily criticized for the diet, with many branding it “unhealthy” — including actress Lily Reinhart, who said Kim’s “ignorance is unworldly and gross.”

However, the star’s personal trainer, Don “DB” Brooks, hit back at trolls, stating that it’s “not like starving yourself,” noting that she would “put the work into it.”
“I mean, I was there throughout the process, so it wasn’t like starving yourself. I mean, she ate a really balanced diet and sometimes she didn’t eat that much. But then the second thing was that she was in the gym and putting the work into it.
In June, Kim hit back at the criticism and insisted she had “done nothing unhealthy” when comparing her diet to Christian Bale’s transformation for The Machinist.
Speaking to The New York Times, Kim shared that she lost the weight through dieting, wearing a sauna suit and running twice a day, explaining, “I haven’t done anything unhealthy.”

Christian Bale famously lost nearly five stone for his role in The Machinist movie, with Kim revealing she sees no difference to her own transformation.
“OK, Christian Bale can do it for a movie role and that’s acceptable,” she quipped.
Referring to Renée Zellweger’s weight gain to play her eponymous role in the movie Bridget Jones’ Diary, Kim continued, “Even Renée Zellweger gained weight for a role. It’s all the same to me. I didn’t say, “Hey everyone, why don’t you guys lose that weight in a little while?”
When asked what would have happened if she hadn’t reached her weight goal, she revealed how much fitting in the dress meant to her: “I just couldn’t have gone, which didn’t matter, it was. It is It is simply important to me to achieve this goal.”

The Marilyn dress was auctioned off by Ripley’s Believe It or Not chain of museums, with no alterations allowed to be made to the original dress.
The rapid weight loss prompted wild theories that Kim actually underwent surgery to lose weight.
Instagram account Surgeon Made Curves posited that Kim and her sister Khloe Kardashian had received an endoscopic sheath, writing back in June, “I get vibes that she and Khloe did the endoscopic sheath but am not sure… for.” those wondering… They cut your stomach like a mini pod, but they go through your mouth/throat. Google it for more pictures.’

Kim has only ever credited good old-fashioned diet and exercise — when it was extreme — for weight loss.
In addition to the workout, Kim also credited a laser procedure with helping “tighten” her stomach.
She shared a recording of the procedure to her account in August, calling it a “game changer,” though she admitted it was “painful.”

Beauty is pain: She shared a footage of the procedure to her account back in August, calling it a “game changer,” though she admitted it was “painful.”
‘This is a game changer!!! I did a morpheus laser to tone up my stomach at @DrGhavamis spa,” she wrote, adding, “I think this is my favorite laser but it’s painful lol but it’s worth it!”
Kim previously boasted about her shapeshifting powers on new Hulu series The Kardashians, where she revealed she could fit into almost anything as she prepared to try on a replica Marilyn dress.
“The breadth of my shoulders and body makes me a shapeshifter. I can squeeze into anything. But nobody trusted us for years, they would never send samples.
“And then when I got to Paris and tried on the samples, they were like, ‘Oh wait, it actually fits our clothes.’ So I don’t know how to convince the guy who owns the original Marilyn dress that I’m a shapeshifter.”
