Psst! We have Khloé Kardashian’s weight-loss secrets.
Khloé Kardashian and her trainers reveal how to look and feel your best MY WEIGHT DOESN’T MATTER. I FEEL GOOD THAT I FEEL COMFORTABLE IN MY CLOTHES.” KHLOÉ KARDASHIAN
Khloé Kardashian looked incredible in a photo, taken in the Bahamas on Aug. 18, showing off rock-hard abs, toned legs and a curve-hugging baby-blue bikini. “This summer I have been focused on ME,” she said, and if anyone’s earned that right, it’s Kardashian. It’s been a long, painful journey to get here — six months ago, the 35-year-old split from NBA player Tristan Thompson, her cheating boyfriend (and father to her baby girl, True, 16 months) — and now she’s mastered a life that prioritizes hard work and emotional wellness. The best part? Her fans can follow in her footsteps. “I’m so good. I feel really happy,” Kardashian tells Us. “I like that I’m taking time for myself.”
— specifically from 6 a.m.
to 7 a.m. every morning before True wakes up, to avoid the inevitable “mom guilt,” she tells Us — focusing on her fitness. She began a strict workout regimen in 2018, shedding 40 pounds of pregnancy weight after hitting 203 pounds. “Her goal is always to look the best she can,” explains trainer Corey Calliet, who stars on her E! makeover series, Revenge Body With Khloé Kardashian. “It’s like an addiction you want to share with people.” Boxing was Kardashian’s workout of choice, but now she does “a lot of metabolic circuit training,” she tells Us, which focuses on weightlifting with cardio intervals in between. To get her toned physique, fellow Revenge Body trainer Gunnar Peterson tells Us to try hip-bridges, squats, lunges, carries and push-pulls. “I’d sequence it in this way: upper body, lower body, repeat, so the blood is forced to go to the muscles and you get that extra heart-rate effect.” The most important tip: Persistence. “When Khloé was jump-starting this whole thing,” says Peterson, “she was [training] six days a week.” Quick fixes won’t work. Warns Calliet, “You’re not going to get the craziest total body transformation in 12 to 14 weeks. You’re going to get a start and learn habits and good routines that can take you to the next level.”
Of course, a balanced diet is equally important in achieving results. Kardashian family nutritionist Philip Goglia has said that Khloé eats six or seven small meals a day consisting of healthy fats and protein, plus fruits and vegetables.
She typically starts with a shake made with whey protein, almond butter, ice and fruit in the morning and ends the day with an inflammation-fighting fatty fish like salmon (maple salmon with spinach and asparagus is one of her favorite dinners). He also recommends single cheat meals instead of entire cheat days.
Kardashian is the first to admit she’s her own worst critic. “I’m still working on my parts, but it’s a challenge after a baby. Your stomach is just different — it’s flat but not as tight as it was, and that’s a big adjustment for me,” she tells Us. On days when she’s feeling down, she gives herself a pep talk, adding that she loves a good inspirational quote — particularly one of Peterson’s mantras, which she says she lives by: “If you stay ready, you never have to get ready.” But, she says, “it’s also just [about] surrounding yourself with good people who give you good energy that you can feed off of.” •
