“I’m starting a 10-day cleanse in the morning and I need to mentally prepare and get these donuts out of here LOL,” Kardashian proudly tweeted last month, before embarking on the Sunfare Optimal Cleanse, which combines shakes and health meals in a personalized detox program.
By day four, the 37-year-old bragged about losing a whopping five pounds, and asked her followers to “pray” for her.
“Kim there's people out here dying... and you want us to pray about your liquid cleanse?” one follower shot back.
Health experts weren’t impressed by her plan either. Personal trainer, nutrition coach and co-founder of Fit Squad DXB Devinder Bains told New! Magazine the diet will not help her lose weight in the long run.
“The main problem with this sort of cleanse is that it's a short-term fix,” Bains told the publication. “Of course she'll lose weight, though most of this will be fluid.
The bad news is that she will regain the weight, and maybe even put on extra weight once she goes back to a more normal and sustainable eating pattern.”
Bains says if Kardashian really wants to shed some weight, she should do so at a normal, steady pace.
“Kim is in great shape, but if she wanted to lose the best thing would have been to start her diet a little earlier." explained Bains. “A safe l2-week plan of healthy eating with a mix of cardio and strength training would have seen her lose the excess pounds ."
