Kim Kardashian West was inspired to go on a "really crazy diet" after finding a bodybuilder on Instagram who had bounced back after putting on 79 pounds during her pregnancy.

The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star was inspired to work on her fitness and body after coming across trainer Melissa Alcantara's page on the photo-sharing site.

Speaking on the family's E! reality show, Kim - who has North, four, and Saint, 23 months - told her mother Kris Jenner: "I'm going to start a really crazy diet. I was looking on Instagram and this body builder popped up on my page and she had gained 70 pounds in her pregnancy. Her kid's like 6 now. She is like ripped. Melissa is a trainer I found.

"She's super inspiring to me and I really want to meet up with her and she if she could train me. She could help direct my food and really get me on an amazing path ... If I was 10 percent like her it would be life-changing. Like my whole arms and back. It's mostly food. I gotta have this lifestyle. I gotta try."

Kim then invited Melissa back to her house, where she helped to clear out her pantry of all the processed foods and then they hit the gym together.

Speaking about her secrets to success, Melissa shared: "[It's about] making food simple and eating fresh and good meals ... Portion control [is important] too.

"It's a mix [with the exercise]. I like low intensity interval training. I have high intensity and then weight training."

The pair's workout together left Kim feeling really positive at the thought that she could finally get the abs she had always wanted.

She shared: "I know I could get abs - I've never been pushed to get them, but I know I could."
