Reality-TV star Khloe Kardashian, often scrutinized in the media for her fluctuating weight, is now looking healthier and hotter than ever, after divorcing NBA star Lamar Odom in December. For months, there was speculation that Odom cheated on her with numerous women and indulged in substance abuse.
The pair married four years ago after a 30-day courtship. In November, Odom admitted to cheating on Kardashian, 29, in a bizarre rap video while drunk. In August, he was arrested on charges of driving under the influence. “This, in and of itself, is heart breaking and torture to my soul,” she tweeted after filing. After her split from her troubled estranged husband, Kardashian is proving that life after a breakup does not have to include Ben & Jerrys ice cream and sad movies.
In Cosmopolitan Australia's February issue, Kardashian reveals she has actually gotten more fit recently. “I’ve definitely become obsessed with working out! It’s funny, because my weight has always fluctuated, but recently so many people have been saying, “You look so good, you’ve lost all this weight.” It’s actually been about a year and a half that I’ve been making a lifestyle change. There’s no quick fix, I would say.
If I ate better, I would lose weight faster, but I don’t want to," she continued. "I love food and there’s lots of family time with food and your friends. I work out really hard so I can have my Champagne and that part of life. I’d rather take longer to lose weight but have fun doing it,” the 29-year-old said in the issue.
It is great that the reality star has chosen to focus on her well-being, as opposed to becoming obsessed with weird diets that some other celebrities have been associated with. Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon were reportedly fans of the baby food diet, for example. This lose-weight-quick fad involves eating only baby food during the day and then a “healthy” dinner. (14 servings of baby food equal approximately 1,000 calories).
For supermodel Miranda Kerr, the slimming secret is coconut oil. She says she ingests four tablespoons a day, putting in on salads and in green tea, or cooking with it.
Fortunately, Kardashian did not have to take part in these weird-sounding diets to drop the pounds. Her method helped her lose 30 pounds over the past year and a half, and she has been able to keep the weight off.
