The Kardashian sisters have always been in the news for one reason or the other. Most of the times the reason is related something that they’ve tried with their body. However, Khloe was always referred to as the ‘fat’ sister. People have often attacked her with comments on her weight until Khloe had enough and she managed to lose 18 kg! Her transformation has stunned us all, and we are in love with the figure she has maintained.
Khloe talks about what all she had to go through to get into the shape she is in now. She had to change her diet and work out for hours. She also shares that it’s not just about shedding the weight. You have to put equal effort into maintaining your body keeping the fat from coming back.
Khloe Kardashian’s Workout Routine
Khloe takes her gym routine very seriously. She knew she just had to work her ass off to shed those extra pounds. She made it a point to go to the gym regularly, five days a week working out for over an hour. Even on days that she was overloaded with work, and she had lesser time than the usual, she would still make it to the gym. This one time, she only had 35 minutes for her work out. But she was so determined that she burned 543 calories in just those 35 minutes!
Here’s the workout that she followed during her one hour at the gym –
- Weight Lifting: Khloe’s trainer, Peterson emphasized on lifting weights. Your old tissues get torn down into strong new ones, and that’s how your body strengthens itself and builds muscle. Fat does not get converted into muscle. You have to burn the fat and build the muscle.
What To Do: Single dumbbell clean and press.
How To Do: Keep your feet apart and push your hips back as you squat on the floor. Then smoothly pull the dumbbell and bringing it at shoulder height as you stand up with pressure on your heels.
- Boxing: Boxing is a great way to tone up the muscle that you have built. It opens up the body and improves coordination and balance.
- Lunges: This is one of her core exercises. It is an essential lower body workout that strengthens the leg muscle toning and giving them a great shape.
What To Do: Twisting Lunges
How To Do: Perform lunges by rotating a medicine ball or dumbbell from one side to another. Prefer doing this exercise barefoot.
- Squats: Squats, of course, are the best way to tone up your butt, and evidently, we can see the effects on Khloe well. Along with regular squatting, Peterson asked her to a special type of squat called ‘Bosu Ball Ski Squat.’
What To Do: Bosu Ball Ski Squat
How To Do: Stand on a Bosu ball and hold that position for at least a minute. This would cause your leg to recruit muscle-firing patterns. With practice, you will learn to stabilize yourself more easily and efficiently. You can even see one of Khloe’s ‘Khlo-fit’ videos on YouTube to see how this whole squat works. If you do not have a Bosu ball, you can use a pillow and a folded mattress for the time.
That was Khloe’s simple yet challenging workout. Just be regular and don’t skip the workout. You can even perform this routine without going to the gym.
Along with working out, you have to have a control on what you eat to make a difference to your body. Khloe shares how she moved to a better and healthy lifestyle with what she ate.
Khloe Kardashian’s Diet Plan
Khloe selected her diet very carefully, eliminating unhealthy fats, excessive sugar, and dairy products from her diet completely. She switched to fresh organic food rich in protein and fed her body a nutritious and balanced diet during the day.
She kept her breakfast simple and nutritious by eating a different variety of eggs and oatmeal each day. She says if you are trying to lose weight, boiled eggs, scrambled eggs, and omelettes are the best choices for breakfast. They keep you energized for the day, and you don’t get hungry soon, thus purging away the possibility of you munching on unhealthy snacks between breakfast and lunch.
There is a wide variety of oatmeal that you can choose so that you don’t get bored. A little health tip, prefer to eat oatmeal with large flakes because it will take longer to digest thus preventing you from consuming unnecessary food.
- Raw leafy Vegetables
Well, if you are trying to lose weight, there is nothing better than including raw food in your diet. Raw food is highly nutritious and, low calorie and keeps your body fresh and energized. Nothing keeps your body young like eating fresh green food says Khloe. Also, if you have gotten your hormones all messed up eating lots of junk food, eating raw food helps you get them balanced and back to normal.
- Fresh fruits
- Protein shake
When Khloe gets hungry in the evening like all of us, she prefers to fill her stomach with juices and fresh fruits. If you want to keep your body fit and skin glowing, fruits are a must for you. Fruits help you feel full for a longer time. She also takes a protein shake before hitting the gym to keep her energized.
- Grilled skinless chicken
- Cooked vegetables
Well it’s hard to cut down on chicken, isn’t it? But if you are building muscle, it is necessary for your diet. What you can do is avoid fried chicken and take grilled chicken instead. Also, skinless grilled chicken has fewer calories and more protein. Besides chicken, eat your vegetables as there is no substitute for the rich and fibrous nutrients they contain. Most importantly avoid bread and pasta in your diet, especially at night. It takes time to digest and gets stored as fat in your body which is difficult to shed.
Besides this, don’t forget to drink lots and lots of water!
