Pregnant Kim Kardashian has let her raging cravings take over!
In Touch has learned that in recent weeks, the expectant star has indulged in high-calorie, carbohydrate-heavy meals including creamy risotto, chicken and waffles, decadent desserts and more.
On March 17, she was spotted at South City Kitchen in Atlanta scarfing down greasy chicken and waffles, along with smashed bliss potatoes, collard greens, and mac and cheese. Back in Beverly Hills days later, she stopped — twice in one week — into one of her favorite Italian restaurants, Il Pastaio, for carb-heavy lunches.

“Kim ate the same dish both times — creamy mushroom risotto,” a fellow diner tells In Touch. “She also ate bread with olive oil, and the second time she came in she also shared the arancini [fried rice balls] appetizer.” The risotto alone has a whopping 1,300 calories. “She hasn’t just gained 20 pounds like she claims,” a pal tells In Touch. “She’d already gained 45 to 50 when she still had four months to go!"
But it's more than likely Kim is only eating her feelings. Her beau and father of her baby, Kanye West, 35, has deserted her during the time she needs him most, spending most of his time 6,000 miles away in Paris, far from his pregnant girlfriend. While Kim's worrying she'll end up a single mother, she has sweet treats to help her cope.
Thankfully, Kim welcomes her expanding tummy, recognizing the fact that her body is going through a transformation. "At the beginning it was tough for me when your body changes so much, but once you kind of grasp that and embrace it, it's amazing,” she says.
