Is Atkins Back? Celebs Rocking Their Look After Losing Weight the Carnivore Way

What do Sharon Osbourne, Kim Kardashian, Demi Moore and Catherine Zeta-Jones have in common?

Besides being drop-dead gorgeous ladies, they are all committed to a carb-free lifestyle on the Atkins diet–and have been losing the pounds you would expect from this controversial way of life.

Bacon and Eggs (and Celebs!)

Sure, eating bacon and eggs for three meals a day sounds like a dream come true, but is it for real? These celebs certainly think so–and whether you’re looking at Sharon Osbourne who dropped 23 pounds or Kim K who flaunted a 40+ pound weight loss, the one thing that isn’t in question is that these celebrities are looking good. 

Who Needs Low Fat?

With beauties like Courtney Thorne-Smith becoming a spokesperson for Atkins, it’s pretty tough to go against this seemingly-impossible weight loss trend. I mean, who doesn’t want to look like her–and eat butter and steak at the same time?

Prepping For Shows

Since the Atkins diet is famous for allowing people to drop significant amounts of weight quickly, that could explain why celebs such as Renee Zellweger used it to go from a relatively-chubby Bridget Jones to the sleek and sexy dancer in Chicago quite quickly. While still restrictive in nature, the diet allows foods that would be completely forbidden on traditional low-fat diets, such as ranch dressing and bacon. Mmmm….bacon.

Of course, no one wants to choose a diet based on which celebrity was able to lose weight on it, right? Although most ladies wouldn’t be averse to drawing as many looks as Mrs. Kanye West–even after having a baby. Maybe there’s something to this Atkins diet after all!
