Kim Kardashian reveals consequences of Met Gala diet
Kim Kardashian is living proof of why weight loss and diet tricks can be dangerous. Recently, she revealed that eating meat before the Met Gala caused her psoriasis to flare intensely. It came to the point that she couldn’t even move her hands.
The business mogul and influencer said she had to switch to a full-on plant-based diet before the Met Gala. Although she already had a long-time existing Psoriatic arthritis, this time it appeared so severely. This is according to her recent interview with Allure.
Furthermore, Psoriasis is an irritable skin condition that causes scaly, red patches. While Kardashian’s Psoriatic arthritis is a type of autoimmune disease that directly affects people with an existing Psoriasis.

Kardashian has been open about her condition since her doctor diagnosed her illness in 2011. She even told her fans before that her skin condition had worsened.
In her interview with Allure, she said that her extreme diet is the culprit of her Psoriasis flare-up. Kardashian’s diet led her to lose 16 pounds in three weeks just to fit in Marilyn Monroe’s “Happy Birthday, Mr. President” iconic dress.
While Kardashian successfully fitted in the dress, it triggered a “really painful” psoriasis flare-up. She follows a strict plant-based diet to achieve Marilyn Monroe’s dress size.
Before the Met Gala, Kardashian returned to eating meat to follow the rules of her “strict” sugar-free and carb-free diet. Moreover, she is also a chief taste consultant of the famous plant-based protein brand Beyond Meat.
A rep for Ripley's Believe It or Not! claims Marilyn Monroe’s iconic dress was not damaged by Kim Kardashian at the Met Gala:

She said, “Psoriasis broke out over my body, and I got psoriatic arthritis so that I couldn’t move my hands. It was really painful, and I had to go to a rheumatologist who put me on steroids. I was freaking out. I cut out the meat again, and it’s calmed down.”
The controversies follow the successful outcome of her extreme diet for the Met Gala. While her diet helped her lose 16 pounds, people online slammed her for her efforts to fit in the dress. Not only that, many weren’t happy when she wore Marilyn Monroe’s famous dress. People saw it as damage to the history of the dress.
Moreover, most of the backlash still fell on Kardashian’s crash diet. She responded to these criticisms. “If I were starving and doing it unhealthy, I would say that, of course, that’s not a good message. But I had a nutritionist; I had a trainer. And, I have never drunk more water in my life. I don’t see the criticism for other people when they lose weight for roles. They are geniuses for their crafts. There are so many things out there that are not so accurate and not true.”
In addition, experts don’t recommend Kardashian’s diet to most people. Her diet, which includes restrictions and cutting of carbs, can be risky for some.
