She Does Cleanses

Like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kourtney is all about trying out new cleanses. "So, I'm doing this Ayurvedic cleanse right now," she told Bustle in a recent interview. "It's called Panchakarma. You can't eat anything cold; you can't drink anything cold. It's for 12 days. No sex. No working out. It's crazy." The practice supposedly balances energy to promote health. "It actually made everything better," she said. "Like, if you can't have caffeine, when you have your first matcha, it's so good."


She Is Mostly Vegan


Kourtney revealed to Harper's Bazaar that she maintains a mostly plant-based diet. "I've been on a health and wellness journey for the past 13 years, which has made me super conscious of what I put into my body and my kids' bodies. I'm not fully vegan, but Travis has helped me keep to a mostly plant-based diet, which is so much easier with Daring," she said, promoting a meal alternative brand.  


She Orders Healthy At Restaurants

In a video shared on Poosh, Kourtney revealed her trick to eating healthy at restaurants. "When I go to a restaurant…if I'm really trying to be good, the hardest part is ordering the food," she explained. She always tries to keep in mind one thing when she is ordering. "Once it comes, you're going to be happy with it. Even if you order vegetable soup, it's still going to taste good once it comes. Obviously, you'd rather order the French fries and a burger, but it's just about making the wise order, and once it arrives, you're going to be fine."


Drink Water to Stave Off Hunger

Kourtney revealed to Byrdie that water is her secret to weight loss. "Whenever I notice that I'm feeling bloated or like I need to step up [my body] or something, it's always because I'm not drinking enough water. When I step up the water, I'll instantly lose like two pounds in one day," she said. "Half the time when you're hungry, you're really thirsty. I eat constantly throughout the day, so I'm not saying don't eat and just drink water, but I notice I eat less just because I'm so full from the water."


She Takes Shots of Olive Oil


Kourtney drinks a shot of olive oil (one tablespoon) every other day, explaining on Poosh that Extra Virgin Olive Oil "can improve overall brain health thanks to antioxidants that boost memory and mood" and "can strengthen immunity and fight against infections with the help of monounsaturated fats (aka the healthy fats in EVOO) and antioxidants."
