Khloe Kardashian is in the best shape of her life after her 35-pound weight loss during the past few months.
Khloe, who grew up being called the “fat sister” and the “ugly sister,” has started to come into her own after resolving she won’t let bullies damage her self-esteem.
Part of her renewed self-confidence comes from losing 35 pounds this year through diet and exercise. In her new book, Strong Looks Better Naked, Khloe shared her diet, workout and happiness secrets with fans.
Kardashian said her daily diet typically looks like this:
- Breakfast at 5 a.m. – “A huge glass of water followed by black coffee.”
- Snack at 11 a.m. – Apple with peanut butter or nuts.
- Lunch: Chinese chicken salad, more water and and chopped vegetables.
- Dinner at 7 p.m. – Steamed vegetables and fish.
- Evening snack – Greek yogurt and fruit.
Khloe snacks on pre-cut vegetables and fruits like strawberries and blackberries during the day and drinks almond milk instead of regular cow’s milk, which she says causes bloating and weight gain.
Kardashian said she was overweight for many years because of her mindless snacking and emotional overeating. “I was a mindless eater,” Khloe wrote in Strong Looks Better Naked.
“I ate for comfort. I also ate out of boredom and habit. I ate when I was unhappy. I even ate chips because I love the crunchy sound they make. And I didn’t give much thought to what I was eating, or what I was putting inside my body.”
Khloe said her 35-pound weight loss was sweet revenge against fat-shamers who have criticized her body and weight over the years.
“It’s for all my critics who called me ‘the fat one’ for my entire existence,” said Kardashian.
Khloe, who has been called “Sasquatch,” “Bigfoot” and “ugly sister,” said working out regularly became a habit after she kept it up for three months.
While Khloe loves the weight loss she has experienced, she says exercise relieves her anxiety and depression. Kardashian added that she exercises a lot because she loves to eat.
“I’m a foodie,” said Khloe. “If I could control what I eat, I would have the best body ever, but because I have no self-control I have to work harder. I would rather work out harder and eat what I want, in moderation.”
In addition to rigorous workouts, Kardashian says regular corset waist training has helped her get flat abs.
Khloe and her sisters Kourtney and Kim Kardashian also do corset waist training to flatten their abs and slim down their waistline, as Celebrity Health & Fitness previously reported.
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 2014 wedding to Kanye West.
The measure sounds drastic, but actress Jessica Alba credited wearing double corsets around the clock for three months for her dramatic weight loss after each of her two pregnancies.
