Khloe Kardashian feels that being fat saved her from taking a wrong turn in life, even though her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, liked her when she was heavier. After working for months to lose weight and go from the chubby sister to the svelte member of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clan, Khloe is revealing her unexpected view that because she was fat, she was saved from becoming a “whore”, reported ET.
Kardashian mocked herself on Keeping Up With the Kardashians as she dished about her war with her weight. Khloe and her sister Kim Kardashian were kidding around when Kim referred to her as “Khloe Blowie.” But Khloe corrected her sister.
“That wasn’t my name in high school, that was another Khloe’s name is high school,” retorted Khloe. “Rob told my dad that my nickname was ‘Khloe Blowie’ and I was like, ‘That was not me, I’m the fat one, who’s gonna want b******s from the fat girl?’ Being fat really saved me from being a whore in life.”
Moreover, added Kardashian, she feels that the fact that Lamar Odom, her estranged husband, accepted her and liked her when she was “fat” influenced her feelings toward him.
“Being fat and then being married … like, I respect Lamar because he still liked me fat, which is, like, I appreciate that,” added Khloe.
“That’s what his hold has been over you this whole time?” teased Kim.
But Kardashian took her weight very seriously.
“That’s a big deal when a cool person likes you at your worst,” she retorted.
As to how Khloe shed those pounds, Kardashian shared the secrets of her 40-pound weight loss with People.
Even penning a book about her success, Strong Looks Better Naked, Khloe is fond of sharing her workout pictures on social media. Kardashian credits a combination of exercise and diet to her newly sleek physique.
“I definitely think the physical and the mental go hand in hand,” declared Khloe. “I feel so good in the gym that it [affects] the rest of my day. It’s a healthy addiction. It’s like buying your sanity!”
After Lamar was found unconscious in a brothel following an overdose and hospitalized for months, Kardashian stayed by his side. She soon found that she missed her workout routine.
“Mentally, it took its toll on me,” revealed Khloe of those weeks spent in Lamar’s hospital room. “But for the first month, I wasn’t even really thinking about that. It wasn’t about me. But once I started getting my feet back under me a little bit, I was like, oh my God, I need to get back to my routine.”
And that wasn’t easy at first.
“My stamina was affected,” confessed Kardashian. “I do these drills where I’m running and I realized how out of breath I was compared to how I normally was. But I worked so hard to get there, I couldn’t lose it.”
With Odom recovering, Khloe is now back to her routine. She works out four days every week with her personal trainer, Gunnar Peterson, and follows a pre-planned diet by keeping the right foods up front.
“I want whatever is quick, so having healthy items available when I’m hungry, there’s no excuse,” explained Kardashian.
That means pre-cut vegetables and fruit are always available, with treats such as candy, cake, and pizza kept to a minimum.
“I don’t deprive myself,” emphasized Khloe. “I’ll still have a piece of cake; I just won’t have two of them!”
While Kardashian is flaunting her weight loss, her beau James Harden is interested in having her flaunt something else.
In Touch Weekly cites a source claiming that James wants Khloe to undergo plastic surgery for breast implants.
“He’s constantly talking about how much he likes large breasts,” said the source. “He has a reputation as a player, and Khloe knows the kind of woman he finds attractive. She doesn’t want him looking elsewhere, so she’s ready to go under the knife just to keep him happy and interested.”
