Kourtney Kardashian Diet and Workout
American born Kourtney Mary Kardashian is now thirty four and is the oldest of the Kardashian sisters. Having first been brought into the spotlight by her friend Paris Hilton, her and her family were commissioned to their own reality TV show Keeping up with the Kardashians in 2007 which thrust them all to stardom. Since then she’s starred in spin offs such as Kourtney and Khloé Take Miami, Kourtney and Kim Take New York, and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami and is now known for being a television personality, fashion designer, and model.
When Kourtney Kardashian first came into the public eye she was slender, tall, lean, and beautiful however it wasn’t long before she got pregnant. She gave birth to her son Mason Dash Disick in December 2009 and found herself forty five pounds heavier than she had been pre pregnancy. Within just three months of giving birth however she’d lost thirty five pounds of the weight however and pushed her self to quickly lose the rest seeing as she had a photo shoot fast approaching. This however proved to be a mistake however and she ended up collapsing on a beach while running due to exhaustion from pushing her body too far.
When she gave birth to her second child a daughter named Penelope Scotland Disick in July 2012 she found herself once again with a lot of excess weight however she vowed that this time she’d not push herself to lose it as quickly. Instead, she took things slower and soon enough she had her perfect beach body back. Want to know how she did it? Here’s how…
The TV star credits much of her remarkable weight loss from both pregnancies to breast feeding. She guesses it mush help her to shed an extra six hundred calories per day which over a period of time helped her to shed the extra pounds. It’s good for you and helps to give your baby a great start in life. As a result, she advises any new mother to do the same.
While she may have been running when she collapsed after her first pregnancy, it hasn’t dampened the star’s spirits. She loves running and enjoys few things better than putting a few of her favourite songs on the iPod shuffle and going for a jog along the beach. If she doesn’t have time to venture out into the world to run, she simply jumps on her treadmill or her elliptical trainer so she’s not missing a workout. She tends to run most days but at a minimum she runs four times per week.
To make running a more intense workout for her, she sometimes does some extra drills during the workout too. Every now and again she stops running and does things like high knees, low walking, lunges, and sprinting. She’s also been known to say she much prefers running when she has a friend or one of her sisters to run along with.
Mix It Up
Kourtney Kardashian always tries to vary her workouts and do things that her body won’t expect and isn’t used to. This means it’s more likely to burn off extra calories as it’s not getting a chance to relax and adapt to the workout. As a result, she’s always pushing herself and doing exercises which will challenge her.
Kourtney Kardashian’s Diet Plan
“I can never follow a diet,” she says and admits that eating healthy can be hard when her and her family eat dinner at her mother’s house twice a week. “She always has a huge spread – soups, salads, pasta, rice, meatballs – and I like to have a little bit of everything.” She says she doesn’t have a strict diet but tries to stay away from processed foods, foods with high sugar, and starchy foods like bread. She absolutely loves eating salad with deli turkey, lettuce, cucumber and sunflower seeds. Salmon and chicken are also two of her personal favourites. Where possible, the star has cut out any unnecessary calories but eliminating fruit juice, switching Chai latte to one espresso shot that saves 235 calories and has also stopped eating dried fruits. “I was eating a lot of dried fruits, and I didn’t realize how much sugar that added. And now I’ll eat raw almonds instead of salted ones.”
On a daily basis she always makes sure she eats a filling breakfast and throughout the day she drinks plenty of water to keep her hydrated and feeling full. She says that one of the keys to a successful eating plan is to keep a positive attitude towards your diet. You have to enjoy your food as well as ensuring it’s somewhat healthy or you’ll only end up binging on all the bad stuff. That’s why she focusses on eating all her favourite healthy food like salad and lean chicken.
