Read on to see 5 ways Kim Kardashian stays in shape and the photos that prove they work—and to get beach-ready yourself, don't miss these essential 30 Best-Ever Celebrity Bathing Suit Photos!
She Goes to the Gym
She works out right. "We're back in the gym heavy! I would say every 6 months I take two weeks off from lifting. Sometimes you just need a break to recharge and chill but then I miss it so much and feel so good to be back at it," she wrote on Instagram once. "When it comes to" the backside "and legs, we usually work out for an hour and a half to an hour and 45 minutes," Kim's trailer Melissa Alcantara told Women's Health. "You want to work out efficiently and be smart about it."
She Eats Plant-Based
"I eat mostly plant based. No meat anymore," she told a fan on social media. "Investigators have studied the relationship between plant-based food intake and various ailments in many, many studies. Spoiler alert: Eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains wins. These are just a few key research findings," reports the Mayo Clinic.
- "High cholesterol. Reviewing 11 different studies, researchers concluded that plant-based diets helped people significantly improve both their cholesterol level and weight.
- High blood pressure. In another study, people who ate more fruit had a lower risk of developing hypertension (high blood pressure). In particular, eating blueberries, apples, pears, raisins and grapes all had a beneficial impact on blood pressure."
She Eats This For Breakfast and Lunch
"Oatmeal and vegan sausage for breakfast, vegan tacos are my fave for lunch!" she told a fan on social media. "Eating oatmeal regularly can have weight management benefits as a half-cup of rolled oats cooked in a cup of water has 165 calories, 4 grams of fiber and 6 grams of protein. The fiber and protein content contribute to feeling full longer and a slower blood glucose release. Oats also are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals, including magnesium, copper, thiamine and zinc," reports the Mayo Clinic.
She Uses This for Her Psoriasis
Kim says she has psoriasis. "The disease is something I have learned to live with, but there are still times when I can feel insecure about it—especially on red carpets or at a photo shoot," she writes. "There isn't a cure for psoriasis, but there are treatments that can help ease the symptoms." She recommends the Clarify Home Light Therapy System. "I love it because it's a handheld, at-home treatment that syncs with your phone to give you step-by-step instructions and tells you when to do treatments and take progress photos," she writes.
She Sprints on the Treadmill
"Been sprinting every day!" she recently wrote on her Instagram Story. "I've been seeing changes!" Here's a treadmill workout from the Mayo Clinic that also works:
"This is an advanced workout. It is similar to a HIIT (high intensity interval training) style cardio/ strength workout that is completed all on the treadmill. It will take about 25 minutes to complete the workout (plus warm up and cool down). Be sure to grab on to the handles for support. Feel free to adjust treadmill incline and speed as needed. To modify you can do the workout on a flat treadmill and work your way up to an incline. To advance the workout, jog during the '1-2 minute walk'. Modify any exercises as needed. Enjoy!"
Warm up: Spend 5-8 mins walking/jogging on the treadmill. Get your body moving and heart rate up! Feel free to stretch out any muscles before starting.
Perform exercise for 2 minutes then walk for 1-2 minutes.
Be sure to grab on to side handles as needed. Adjust incline and speed as needed.
Workout: Set treadmill at 10-13% incline, speed 0.7-1.5. 1. Walking lunges – 2 mins 2. Walk 1-2 mins 3. Duck walks/squatted walk – 2 mins 4. Walk 1-2 mins 5. Sideways walks (one side, stay low in squat position and shuffle sideways) – 2 mins 6. Walk 1-2 mins 7. Sideways walks (other side, stay low in squat position and shuffle sideways) – 2 mins 8. Walk 1-2 mins 9. Military lunges (lunge with a high knee step) – 2 mins 10. Walk 1-2 mins 11. Backward duck walk/backward squatted walk – 2 mins 12. Walk 1-2 mins
Cool down: Walk at a comfortable speed while slowly lowering your incline all the way down. Take 5-10 minutes and stretch after.
