She Works Hard When Working Out
"Little visitors in the gym today," Kardashian posted a recent photo of herself with her kids in the gym. It was a rare moment of downtime for Kim at the gym. "When it comes to booty and legs, we usually work out for an hour and a half to an hour and 45 minutes," Kim's trainer Melissa Alcantara, a.k.a. @fitgurlmel, told WomensHealthMag.com in an interview. "You want to work out efficiently and be smart about it." She added: "Kim loves to work the back of her legs—the hamstrings and the booty!" "Her schedule is crazy, and mine is also crazy, so we work out really early in the morning at 6 a.m."
She's Done "Two a Days"
"Plant based and two workouts a day for 30 days to get our mind and body right this year!" Kim said once in a video, in which she and sister Khloe exercised twice in one day. The CDC officially recommends 150 minutes each week total. "We know 150 minutes each week sounds like a lot of time, but it's not. That could be 30 minutes a day, 5 days a week," the say. "The good news is that you can spread your activity out during the week, so you don't have to do it all at once. You can even break it up into smaller chunks of time during the day. Learn more about finding a balance that works for you."
She Has Simple Carbs at the Right Times
"My trainer Mel always says that before and after you train, you should eat simple carbs, like sweet potatoes, and small amounts of fat and protein, like chicken." she has said. "You should also have veggies with your meals, since you need them to help effectively break down and absorb your protein, fat, and carbs."
She Eats Plant-Based When Possible
"I live a healthy life and try to eat as plant based as possible and drink sea moss smoothies," Kim has told Poosh. "Plant-based diet does a body good," she posted on Instagram recently. An example of her meals? "Oatmeal and vegan sausage for breakfast, vegan tacos are my fave for lunch! Salads are good too!" she Tweeted.
She Enjoys Indulgences
On her plant-based diet, Kim eats tacos prepared at home that can be made with Beyond Meat plant-based ground "beef," Violife Just Like Cheddar Shreds, dairy-free sour cream and a variety of veggies. (Except for cilantro; apparently Kim doesn't like cilantro.) During a recent Twitter Q&A, the reality star discussed her "mostly plant-based" diet, but also revealed she has a few "favorite" snack foods. "I love Cheetos. OMG Cheetos puffs too and Doritos sometimes," she wrote. She is not a fan of Flamin' Hot Cheetos, however. "I hate Spicy anything. I know this is going to be very unpopular to so many but I just don't like it. Regular Cheetos for me or Cheetos puffs are my absolute fave."
