Kim Kardashian, who lost about 70 pounds with the low-carb Atkins diet and cardio exercise, is well on her way to reaching her goal weight of 120 pounds.

Kim recently slammed rumors that her tiny waist was due to Photoshop.

Fans accused Kardashian of digitally enhancing her hourglass curves after she sported a cartoonishly small waist in Fergie’s music video “MILF$.”

An angry Kim denied the Photoshop speculation on Snapchat, crediting waist training for her small waist.

“F***YoPhotoshop,” Kim wrote. #CorsetLife”

Waist training is a controversial weight loss trend some women use to slim down their tummies.

“This is a remarkable way to train your waist to be smaller,” said plastic surgeon Dr. Alexander Sinclair, who claims some of his patients have lost up to six inches.

The 5-foot-2 Kardashian, who weighed over 200 pounds while pregnant, now weighs 124 pounds and wants to reach her goal weight of 120 soon, as TheImproper has reported.

Kim Kardashian wore a waist trainer several hours a day after giving birth to regain her hourglass figure.

Kim Kardashian’s weight loss secrets were the low carb Atkins diet and cardio workouts, Celebrity Health Fitness reported.

To melt fat and burn lots of calories, the mom of two ran or walked on the treadmill and used the elliptical trainer.

“I definitely feel good where I’m comfortable again and things are starting to fit,” said Kardashian, who limited her daily carb intake to less than 40 net grams.

Low carb, high-fat diets like the Atkins and ketogenic diets promote rapid weight loss by inducing the body to burn fat for fuel, said Laura Childs, author of Low Carb High Fat No Hunger Diet.

Laura and her daughter Veronica lost a combined 110 pounds with a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic Paleo diet, as TheImproper previously reported.

Reducing carbs and eating healthy fats suppresses appetite and boosts energy, said obesity expert Maria Emmerich, author of Quick & Easy Ketogenic Cooking.

Other celebrities who have lost weight on a low-carb diet include Melissa McCarthy, who lost 75 pounds, and Jessica Simpson, who lost 70 pounds.
