Khloe Kardashian, who’s fitter than ever after her 40-pound weight loss, said sister Kim Kardashian’s hot bikini body is her fitness motivation.
Khloe gave props to Kim on Instagram, where she posted a photo of Kim showcasing her washboard abs in a tiny black bikini bottom.
“My body motivation ?? Mrs. West,” Khloe wrote in the caption to a photo of Kim looking sexy after losing 80 pounds on the low-carb Atkins diet, as Celebrity Health Fitness has reported.
Khloe said Kim’s low carb, high-fat Atkins diet (where she limited her daily carb intake to 40 grams) is too strict for her.
“I wouldn’t last a day on Kim’s new diet,” said Khloe. “It involves cutting out all sugar and carbs but it allows meat and dairy. I like sweets too much and also don’t eat red meat or dairy.”
However, Khloe has cut back on carbs and feels a lot better. “White pasta is high in refined carbs, which means it won’t keep you full for very long,” said Kardasian. “Vegetable noodles made from zucchini or squash are so much better for you and taste just as good with tomato sauce.”
Khloe, who has been mocked as “the fat sister,” “Sasquatch” and “Big Foot,” said a healthy diet and daily exercise transformed her physically and mentally.
Kardashian said exercise helped her cope with the stress she felt during her rocky marriage to ex-husband Odom Lamar.
Kardashian is now addicted to the endorphin high she gets from exercise, and said the accompanying 40-pound weight loss was just frosting on the cake.
“The gym takes all the anxiety away when I’m overwhelmed or stressed out,” said Khloe.
“If I don’t have time to go to a class, I use the treadmill I have at home. It clears my mind of all the crap and puts me in a really good mood.”
Khloe revealed her diet, workout, weight loss, and beauty secrets in her book, Strong Looks Better Naked.
Kardashian’s beauty secrets include sunscreen and anti-aging wrinkle creams, as Celebrity Health Fitness reported.
Khloe is finally proud of her body, after years of feeling like the ugly duckling in her family.
“I put in the work to get the curves I have and every bit of firmness,” said Khloe. “I feel empowered and badass.”
