Reality TV star turned entrepreneur Kim Kardashian West says a plant-based diet ‘does a body good’.
The celeb praised the lifestyle in a recent Instagram post – showing her slim physique to more than 205 million followers.
‘Plant-based does a body good’
Kim was inundated with compliments – with many fans stating their desire to switch to a plant-based diet. However, she also received backlash for creating ‘unrealistic body standards’.
One Twitter user said: “I mean you can’t credit a plant-based diet alone. Being extremely rich and frequent trips to a plastic surgeon/fillers/botox/etc help too.
“Saying this body is obtainable by eating plant-based alone creates unrealistic body standards in an unattainable way.”
This isn’t the first time Kim has credited her plant-heavy diet for her iconic figure. In 2019, the star was asked whether she has removed a rib to achieve her slim waist.
She replied: “No, I honestly think being a vegan now helped.”
Is Kim Kardashian plant-based?
Last year, during a Q&A on Twitter, the celeb revealed she revealed that she is ‘mostly plant-based’ and doesn’t eat meat ‘anymore’.
Since then, she has frequently used her platform to speak about her plant-heavy diet. Recently, she told her followers that she had ‘officially converted three family members’ to a plant-based diet.
Does Kim Kardashian still wear fur?
Despite heavy criticism in the past for her family’s use of real animal fur, Kim has recreated faux-fur versions of her favorite coats.
The star revealed the move after uploading a picture of her five-year-old daughter North donned in a white fur coat.
“Remember when I wore this!” Kim captioned the post. “She picked out the same look lol but fun fact- I took all of my fave furs and remade them in faux fur.”
Vegan charity PETA applauded the move, commenting: “LOVE it. Thank you for making compassionate changes that save animals and showing the world that #FurFree styles are the future!”
