WHEN Kim Kardashian revealed she lost 16 pounds in three weeks to fit into a dress worn by Marilyn Monroe, people were up in arms.
But one woman decided to try the reality TV star’s strict diet to see if she could hack it.

Sarai Jones even attempted a Kardashian-esque workout to get the full experience.
The 25-year-old ate mostly plant-based food for a day and recreated Kim’s well-known meals, but warned against the stench of the cheese she eats.
“I was originally going to do a week of me doing this, but I was like, ‘I don’t think this is the healthiest for my body’,” Sarai admitted.
She started off the day with a two-ingredient breakfast – chia seeds mixed with a plant-based milk to make chia pudding.
The influencer added strawberry and banana to her bowl to “add sweetness” and revealed that “even though it doesn’t look appetising,” she liked it.
The Kardashians are always seen shaking salads on their namesake reality show, so Sarai followed suit.
She picked up a Thai style chicken salad after reading that Kim’s favourite concoction is the Chinese chicken salad from Los Angeles-based salad bar, Health Nut.
The salad was a hit… but dinner definitely wasn’t.
Kim has posted on her social media stories about vegan tacos a number of times, which Sarai recreated for dinner.
She used vegan mince with low-carb almond tortillas, vegan cheese and some veggies.
But before the influencer even got down to eating, she noted that the no-dairy cheese was “stinky” and didn’t melt like normal grated cheese.
“I wouldn’t eat this again,” Sarai said while eating the tacos. “The meat has a weird texture.
“I keep taking bites hoping it’s gonna get better.”
To get the full Kim K experience, she attempted 30 minutes of intermittent sprints on the treadmill after reading it was something the Skims founder had been incorporating into her workouts.
“I definitely don’t think I consumed enough calories in a day,” Sarai concluded in her YouTube video about the diet. “You know, overall, I think the food was pretty good.
“I’m definitely a fan of that salad.”
She said on the red carpet that it had been “such a challenge”, adding: “I didn’t starve myself – but I was so strict.”
