The Kim Kardashian West detox cleanse is insanely intense

Maybe don't try this yourself

The Kim Kardashian West detox cleanse is aimed at preparing the world's most watched woman for this year's Met Gala, which she clearly takes very, very seriously. Writing on her app last week, Kardashian West revealed: Right now, I'm on the third day of my... cleanse! I'm SO excited to do this, you guys, but I definitely need to mentally prepare, lol. I have the Met Gala coming up and I've worked so hard working out, but I started eating a lot of sweets and I wanted to just change my food patterns to eat healthier and cut sugar out of my life as much as I can. We always have sweets around and it's really hard when there are temptations everywhere. Basically, the struggle is real.

According to E! News, the new Kim Kardashian West detox cleanse involves drinking a lot of nutrient-filled shakes. But despite there even being chocolate-flavoured shakes in the selection, this is by no means an easy cleanse: "On days four through six, only shakes and herbal tea are consumed."

Kim Kardashian West has made sugar her mortal enemy

If you think you can survive the liquid-only days, then you'll definitely be deserving of what comes next: 'Other days allow two to four solid meals, such as spice mustard salmon salad, guacamole with veggie chips, butternut squash with soup and salad and romaine lettuce chicken cups."

But committing to a cleanse like this isn't easy, as Kardashian West demonstrated by posting a photo of a box of donuts which she was trying to avoid on her Instagram stories.

This year's Met Gala theme is titled 'Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination,' and takes place on May 7.

Yeah, we won't be signing up for a cleanse like this. We'll stick to 'everything in moderation' instead.
