If you’re a reality TV star, you need to make sure you’re always looking at your best. This doesn’t just mean hefty amounts of makeup. The rest of your body needs to look its best too, and this means your diet needs to be absolutely on point. And when it comes to looking good for a reality TV series, no one feels this pressure more than the Kardashian sisters.
Following on from that, why not take advice on a proper, make-you-look-good diet from one of the Kardashian sisters. Specifically, Khloe.
In a recent interview with health.com, the 32-year-old revealed everything that she eats on a daily basis, in a bid to reveal to women who are striving for good looks how to achieve what they’re looking for.
After working with her trainer Gunner Peterson, he reccommended Khloe to his nutritionist, who helped her develop a much healthier diet, starting with baby steps (such as eliminating soda), and now Khloe has a very healthy daily food intake and she decided to reveal it to the world.
Breakfast and lunch
“I like to cook. If I’m cooking breakfast I love to cook pancakes and all that, but that’s not an every day thing. My breakfasts are pretty routine, because I’m not a breakfast person, I had to train myself to do that. I have steel cut oats with flaxseed powder. I love making protein shakes—in a smoothie, not like a shaker powder. I do berries, banana, almond butter. Every lunch is pretty much a salad. On our show, you see all we do is eat salads. We have Health Nut, which is just, like, amazing.”
“I’m a grazer, so I always have cut fruits and vegetables in my fridge, because I could snack all day. I love hummus and cucumbers and jicama—I’m that person. I freeze grapes for when I’m in bed and need something to crunch on. I like to have things pre-set up for me, or else I’m grabbing the bag of chips.”
“I’m obsessed with edamame, which I know sounds crazy, but it has 15 grams of protein per serving, so I eat edamame or snap peas with rice. I make this Armenian rice, it’s thicker with chicken broth. It’s really yummy.”
“I went dairy-free for two weeks, and I lost 11 pounds. Now I only drink almond milk. I still love cheese, which is hard, but if I want to lose weight quickly, dairy-free is the way to go.”
Knowing what works for her body
“I have a body where I don’t process carbs well after 3 p.m. Kim could eat anything, and I’m like, ‘I hate you.’ The nutritionist was like, ‘Kim has a body like a Ferrari, and you have a body like a Honda.’ I was like, ‘Yep, that sounds about right. That’s my life—you just summed it up right there. So I learned not to eat carbs past 2 p.m. I can eat sweet potatoes or rice, but not other carbs.”
Dealing with cravings
“What’s crazy is that at my house, I’m so used to it, I don’t crave [sweets] here. But if it’s something new, like a new candy, I’m like ‘Ooh, I need to have that.’ And then I’ll get over it. When I go to someone else’s house you can’t stop me. I get very excited. But I do believe if you’re having a craving, don’t deprive yourself—in moderation. If I want a piece of cake, I have a piece of cake. I’m gonna work out harder the next day, but I don’t believe in limiting myself. Everything in moderation. Kourtney wants me to have like gluten-free Oreos, but they’re nasty. If I’m having an Oreo, it’s gonna be a real Oreo.”
