Khloe Kardashian once was known as the “fat sister” of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan. But now, after a 40-pound weight loss and long hours in the gym, Khloe is rocking a sleek physique that’s the envy of her sisters. How did Kardashian do it? The reality TV star shared her top five weight loss tips with People.
Tip 1: When it’s time to eat, make sure the right food is ready.
To avoid temptation, Khloe shared that she always keeps the healthiest choices on hand. That way, when she’s hungry, she doesn’t have the excuse of not having diet food available. And Kardashian confessed that if she didn’t set herself up for success, she’d treat herself to forbidden sweets.
“I always have healthy items available to me when I’m hungry, so it’s available quickly. I’d rather eat a cookie than cut up vegetables, but now I don’t have an excuse,” emphasized Khloe of her top tip.
Tip 2: Drink, drink, and drink — water.
Kardashian recalled spending long weeks in the hospital, where she cared for her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel from a drug overdose, as the Inquisitr reported. And during that time, Khloe maintained her weight loss by gulping down plenty of water, she shared.
“Water flushes you out and makes you feel better,” explained Kardashian of her H2O prescription. “In the hospital, all I drank was water. I was like a fish!”
Tip 3: Deprivation isn’t necessary.
Khloe believes in not being so rigid on a diet that you feel deprived. However, that doesn’t meant eating an entire cake or batch of cookies, she emphasizes.
“I don’t deprive myself,” declared Kardashian. “I am still the person who is going to have a piece of cake, I just won’t have two of them!”
As for how Khloe does deal with those desires for something not on her usual diet, she either goes for candy, alcohol, or pizza for her cheat food or beverage. The key to weight loss, according to Kardashian, is to recognize and stick to limited amounts.
“I’ll have a handful of M&M’s or a piece of pizza. If I drink, I have one or two glasses. It’s about understanding limitations.”
Tip 4: Eat after working out.
Some gym-goers feel extra-hungry after that virtuous workout, and resort to treats to manage it that can blow the calorie budget. Khloe admits she gets so hungry that she needs to eat or she’ll get “cranky.” But to avoid cheating, she make sure she has the right choices available.
“I always have fruit around. And I have a protein shake on the car ride home from the gym. Otherwise I get cranky!” confessed Kardashian.
Tip 5: Enjoy the workout high.
Learn to love that feeling you have after you work out, suggests Khloe, pointing out that the endorphins from exercise result in a much longer “feel-good” sensation than eating that pizza.
“I started having long-term feel-good moments from the gym. You don’t have long-term feel-good moments from pizza,” notes Kardashian.
Khloe recently showed off her fabulous figure during a round of interviews on various talk shows. Among them was Live with Kelly and Michael, where Kardashian turned to the topic of Lamar Odom, reported the Hollywood Gossip.
Lamar Odom Walks Out Of Hospital
Lamar was hospitalized for three months, and now Odom has moved to a private facility, which is near Khloe’s home. Kardashian credits his NBA workouts for helping him make his recovery.
“It’s such a relief,” said the reality TV star. “It was terrifying and scary… no one knew what was going to happen. I really think having so many years of working out every single day – he wasn’t even walking three weeks ago, and now he’s walking.”
Seeking him exit the hospital was a tremendous moment in their lives, added Khloe.
“We were able to leave the hospital — he was able to walk out of the hospital. And it was such a great thing,” she exclaimed.
Khloe Kardashian Drops Bombshell Regarding Breast Cancer Test Attitude
But although Kardashian has such a positive feeling about Lamar and his recovery, she took a very different attitude when Kris Jenner pressured her to get the breast cancer test, reported Yahoo.
Shown on Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Kris pleaded with Khloe to have the BRCA gene test performed. It is designed to look for cell mutations, thereby assisting in showing the likelihood that the patient could develop ovarian and breast cancer. But although Jenner urged her, the 31-year-old reality star didn’t want to comply.
“I don’t want to, is the point,” insisted Khloe. “I don’t really care. Fact: I’m going to die. You’re going to die. We’re all going to die.”
Kris was shocked.
“Do you want to die when you’re 30?” she asks, incredulous. “Or do you want to die when you’re 85.”
“I don’t care,” repeated Kardashian.
Lamar Odom Furious At ‘KUWTK’ Star’s Revelations
While Khloe battles with Kris over that test, Lamar is ready to battle Kardashian for a very different reason. Odom is furious at what Khloe revealed on her recent round of interviews, a source told Radar Online.
Promoting her new talk show Kocktails with Khloe, Kardashian chatted with Howard Stern and detailed the cheating habits of her estranged husband and mistresses. Those revelations, combined with what the reality TV star had said previously about taking credit for saving the life of Lamar, has made Odom outraged, said the source.
“Lamar heard the entire interview Khloe did with Howard and was very unhappy about it. Didn’t she just go out on another media tour for her book and take credit for saving Lamar’s life?” pointed out Radar‘s source.
Consequently, Odom contacted Kardashian and requested that she stop dishing on their shared past.
“Lamar called Khloe and asked her to stop talking about him. He is trying to get on with his life and all Khloe wants to do is dredge up the past,” added the source.
However, Kardashian defended herself by pointing out that she’s repeatedly asked about his condition. But Odom had a comeback to that, according to the source.
“Lamar pointed out that she isn’t going out and going into detail about Rob’s issues. And bringing Lamar’s assistant into the whole thing by claiming he set up the rendezvous was just a low blow,” noted the source.
And Odom is plotting revenge, according to Radar‘s source.
“Lamar is ready to get out of Los Angeles and go back to Las Vegas, away from Khloe. Khloe just wants to look like a saint to the rest of the world, but behind close doors she has given Lamar hell, and he’s not going to let her use him for PR any more.”
