Kim Kardashian Should Keep Her Crazy Weight Loss Claims to Herself

Including her latest wacky weight loss claim, the extreme plan related to it, and of course, an accompanying "hot" recent bathing suit pic she tweeted this week. If you hadn't heard, Kimmy girl recently reported that she dropped 10 pounds in 10 days.

Because even the most beautiful, fit American woman has been brainwashed into believing she needs to lose at least 10 pounds, most of us respond to a claim like Kim's with, "OMG! How and how can I do the same?!" Well, now Kim's dishing ...

She told Us Weekly:

I went gluten-, dairy-, and sugar-free. I ran on the treadmill every day!

But that's not all. She also used Sunfare's 1,300-calorie-a-day meal-delivery program, which starts at $25/day, and says she is currently working out twice a day. (Wait, what? She doesn't owe her body to her QuickTrim caffeine pills??!)

So, okay, it's not exactly the MOST extreme weight loss plan I could imagine. 1,300 calories is perfectly acceptable and twice-daily workouts are totally doable. But cutting out gluten, dairy, and sugar? Not a bad idea, as they're all inflammatory foods, but definitely challenging in the short and especially long-term. But even if you were to do all of the above, 10 pounds in 10 days is still a ridiculous, unattainable goal for most women.

Also, who needs to lose 10 pounds in 10 days?! If you waited 'til the last minute for a big event, well, too bad -- you shoulda started working on it sooner. When it comes to shaping up, we need to realize: There's nothing wrong with taking your time and doing it right. Most of my friends and I who are around Kim's age and on targeted weight loss programs are averaging 1-2 pounds a week -- which is what experts recommend for healthy, sustainable success on the scale.

Oh, sure, you'll hear people get similar extreme results on hardcore, doctor-supervised plans like the HCG Diet, but on your own, it's probably a.) not all that likely and b.) potentially dangerous. Ultimately, buying into Krazy Kim's claims and attempting to replicate her (questionable) results sounds like a disaster waiting to happen.

Do Kim's claims intrigue you, or do you think trying to lose 10 pounds in 10 days is ridiculous?
