Khloe Kardashian, whose weight has fluctuated dramatically through the years, said her weight loss secrets are regular exercise, a sensible diet and corset waist training.
Khloe made the revelations on Instagram, where she revealed that she works out 4 to 5 days a week. However, Kardashian underscored that she exercises for health, not just to look good.
“About two years ago I decided to turn to fitness as a form of therapy and as a stress reliever,” Khloe wrote. “I started slow and eventually I started working out 4 to 5 days a week. We all have to start somewhere and doing something is better than nothing at all. Start small so you don’t get discouraged and give up.”
Kardashian, who also does corset waist training to flatten her abs, said consistency is critical for weight loss and good health. In other words, a little exercise every day is better than marathon workouts one day and then skipping the rest of the week.
“Remember it is all about consistency,” said Khloe. “There are no quick fixes if you want long-term results. Working out is a huge part of my life now. I genuinely enjoy sweating out my frustrations and living a healthier life.
Kardashian added: “My workouts are not all about vanity. They are about clarity for my mind and soul. We all have different journeys in life, make sure your journey is for you and you alone. Remember in the end the turtle won the race. Slow and steady. dedication and tenacity.”
Gunnar Peterson, creator of Gunnar’s Core Secrets fitness DVD, said Khloe’s workouts include cardio exercise, plyometric pushups, hauling a sled, dead lifts, resistance bands and ab exercises. When she’s not at the gym, Kardashian hikes and does Pilates.
In 2014, Khloe lost 30 pounds by following a portion-controlled diet, exercising regularly and doing waist training, Examiner reported. While it may sound odd, “waist-training” or the “Corset Diet,” is a weight loss trend some women use to winnow down their midsection.
“This is a remarkable way to train your waist to be smaller,” said plastic surgeon Dr. Alexander Sinclair, who claims some of his patients have lost up to six inches.
Khloe’s sister Kim said she wore a waist trainer to bed every night to make her waist smaller ahead of her May 24 wedding to Kanye West. The measure sounds drastic, but actress Jessica Alba has credited wearing double corsets around the clock for three months for her dramatic post-baby weight loss.
Similarly, Brooke Burke Charvet, creator of the Transform Your Body workout DVD, said wearing a corset was responsible for her stunning post-baby weight loss after each of her four pregnancies.
“Wrapping your post-partum belly is a concept that has been around for centuries,” said Burke Charvet, who has her own line of belly wraps called Baboosh. “It works as a compression garment. It helps the swelling of the uterus go back down to its original size and it supports all that baggy baby skin. It is a great, great way to get back in shape.”
