Khloé Kardashian reveals she lost 33 pounds in 3 months after giving birth to True
As Kylie Jenner inches closer to becoming the world's first female billionaire, and Kim Kardashian posts shocking photos where she's fully clothed, Khloé Kardashian is exploring the emotional journey of motherhood: the struggles with breastfeeding, the glamour of changing diapers, and the battle to lose all that baby weight.
Surprisingly, Khloé was able to lose 33 pounds in three months, after giving birth to her daughter, True. Fans have wondered, how did the 34-year-old reality star accomplish this? Diet? Exercise? Or following around her philandering husband, Tristan Thompson, to make sure he doesn't cheat?
Previously, Khloé revealed her diet plan: cutting down on carbs, while stocking up on protein to burn off at the gym. She said she starts her day with a tablespoon of jam and almond butter, works out, then eats eggs, a cup of oatmeal and a cup of berries. As the day goes on, she staves off hunger by snacking on more cups of berries and a cup of vegetables. But she never said what she eats for dinner. Turducken? Wasp crackers? Chicken's feet? I guess we'll never know.
Since Khloé her life in the spotlight, fans have noticed her dramatic weight loss, and are dying for more information. Today she break from firing back at haters to post an update on her app. She attributes the weight loss to "combination of breastfeeding and being very active."
"After I had True, I didn’t put any pressure on myself to lose the baby weight. I just wanted to get back to my regular routine from before I got pregnant, which was working out five to six times a week.
"True turned 3 months old on July 12. I honestly didn’t give myself a number that I wanted to lose by this time, especially since I wasn’t able to work out for the first six weeks. But, since then, I’ve lost 33 pounds! I’m shocked that I lost that much weight that quickly. I’m chalking this up to the combination of breastfeeding and being very active during and after my pregnancy."
Everyone knows that it's hard to find the motivation to go to the gym sometimes. Also, everyone's metabolism is different. Khloé points out that you shouldn't judge your success by comparing your progress to others. And if you're seeking a moment of peace in a stressful life, an hour of exercise is rejuvenating.
"I never compare myself to other women as every woman has their own journey. We also all have different priorities in our day-to-day lives. One of mine is having that one hour where I can be selfish and alone in my place of refuge.
"Staying healthy and active is something that’s very important to me. Exercise is something I’ve always used to maintain my sanity and relieve stress. And, now that I have a baby, I still want to keep something that’s my time, my space, something I’m doing for myself.”
Khloé might not be a billionaire, but that advice is priceless.
