Kim Kardashian has been looking very different these days — and there’s a good reason why. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star recently revealed she’s feeling good after some serious weight loss.
If you’ve been wondering just why Kim Kardashian has been looking thinner lately, it’s because she lost some serious weight.
The reality TV star opened up to E! News about her dramatic transformation, gushing about how she’s “really proud” dropping more than 20 pounds.
She said, “I work out about an hour-and-a-half every single day, heavy weights. I don’t do a lot of cardio. But honestly, like even my mom pulled me aside maybe a week ago and pulls me in a closet and is like, ‘What are you doing?’ She says, ‘I don’t care what, I just need to know.’”
“I’ve been working out really hardcore with a bodybuilder for one year. September is our one-year anniversary,” 37-year-old continued. “I’ve lost 20 pounds and I’m really proud of that. I was almost 140 forever and now I’m like 116 and it just feels good.”
She added that while it wasn’t an immediate change, it was worth it in the end.
“I didn’t see results right away, but when you stick with something and you’re consistent, you will. So, I love it,” the Kimoji creator said.
The mother of three also revealed that she switched up her diet and cut back on sugar to lose weight.
“I don’t really eat sugar the way that I used to. It doesn’t really do it for me,” she said. “I’ve kind of been trained to just eat a lot healthier than I used to. I used to just eat anything and everything and I loved it,” she said. “And so I really do control that now… I don’t want to ruin it by just stuffing my face.”
Of course, she still has a little bit of a sweet tooth.
“I love Häagen-Dazs ice cream,” she gushed. “That’s like my one go-to.”
Earlier this year, Kim’s trainer opened up about just what the KKW Beauty founder’s routine looked like.
“Kim told me, ‘I love my body. I love the way it looks and I love my hips,’” Melissa Alcantara told People. “She just wanted more muscle. She wanted bigger hamstrings, which accentuates the entire leg. And she wants those cut arms and abs!”
The former bodybuilder explained that she trains Kim six days a week at 6 a.m., focusing on specific body parts: shoulders, biceps/triceps, and chest/back, along with three days devoted to legs. They also do cardio — either short bursts of high intensity or longer, low-intensity walks.
“She loves and hates leg days,” the trainer said. “But she’s committed! She knows what it takes, but it’s also really grueling. It’s heavy, it’s killer, but she’ll be like, ‘Alright, let’s do it!’ She’s a workhorse.”
