I tried Khloe Kardashian's exact regimen – the workouts were exhausting but her diet wasn't as strict as I expected | The Sun

KHLOE Kardashian's body transformation has been a topic of conversation for years – with many people hoping to attain it.

I took it upon myself to try the reality television star's exercise and diet regimen for three days to see if it was brutal or basic.

Dr. Philip Goglia has been called a “nutritionist to the stars” and was a guest on Khloe Kardashian’s “Revenge Body” on the E! Network.

Dr. Goglia, along with the help of Khloe's trainer Joel Bouraima, also known as Coach Joe, curated a science-based diet plan and intense HIIT-oriented workout routine for her.

Coach Joe spilled the funny Kardashian's workout routine in a blog post on Kourtney Kardashian's Poosh website.

Khloe normally trains Monday to Friday with four days of HIIT workouts and Wednesdays focused on either cardio or pilates.

She probably takes the weekend to recover and spends quality time with friends and family.

Her routines are full body and follow a HIIT style to maximize weight loss while simultaneously building her strength.  

I did two days of HIIT workouts and one day of Pilates from an online site.

“When it comes to nutrition and weight loss, it’s 80 percent in the kitchen and 20 percent in the gym,” stated Dr. Goglia in a 2017 interview.

Khloe's daily diet plan is low in carbs and high in protein, which she eats in small portions many times throughout the day.

According to Goglia, Khloe followed principles that allowed for cheat meals, and she made sure to stay hydrated.

Khloe K’s Typical Meal Plan

Pre-workout – Almond butter and jam 

Breakfast – Eggs, Oats with flaxseed powder, and berries 

Post Breakfast Snacks – Nuts and fruit  

Lunch – Chicken or fish with salad and vegetables

Post Lunch Snack – Fruits or vegetables or a handful of almonds and berries 

Dinner – Fish with salad and vegetables 

Drinking plenty of water has been linked to aiding weight loss while dieting, so I made sure to drink plenty of alkaline water as well.

I followed her daily nutrition and fitness plan from Wednesday to Friday.

I began each day with vitamins, which included B complex, Biotin, Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, and a women's multivitamin.

On her exercise plan, Khloe normally does either cardio or pilates every Wednesday.

That day, I did Forma Pilates, a renowned exercise program used by celebrities like Kendall Jenner and Hailey Bieber, at the end of my workday before dinner.

For breakfast, I had two hard-boiled eggs, steel-cut oats, with flaxseeds, and tossed raspberries and blueberries on top.

For lunch, I had a chicken Caesar salad with balsamic vinaigrette.

Before Forma pilates, I had almond butter and strawberry spread on a slice of sprouted grain toast as my pre-workout snack.

I finished the day with salmon, couscous, and asparagus for dinner.

On Thursday, I followed Coach Joe's exercise plan that was posted on Poosh.

It honestly wasn't as hard as I thought it would be, but I did start to slow down my momentum halfway through.

Thursday Workout Plan

  • Four sets
    • 30-second high knee jumps
    • 30-second lateral/front raise jumps with five-pound weights in each hand
    • 30 seconds rest
    • 15 push-ups
    • 30-second shoulder tap plank
    • 30 seconds rest
    • 10 kneel to squat
    • 30 seconds rest
    • 30-second side planks
    • 30-second bicycle crunches

    For breakfast, I once again had two hard-boiled eggs, but instead had an oatmeal cereal with flaxseeds, raspberries, blueberries, and a salmon avocado salad for lunch.

    My pre-workout before HIIT was again almond butter and strawberry spread on a slice of sprouted grain toast.

    That evening I went out with friends, so I modified my diet but tried to stay close enough to the plan.

    I ate brussels sprouts and mussels and washed it all down with a glass of water with lemon.

    I had energy all day and felt like I could easily get through day three with a positive mindset overall.

    Friday Workout Plan

    • Four sets
      • 10 inchworm push-ups
      • 30-second jumping jacks
      • 30-second rest
      • 10 alternated split squat jumps
      • 15-second split squats
      • 30-second rest 
      • 30-second mountain climbers
      • 30 seconds superman back extensions
      • 30-second rest
      • 10 burpees, 10-second rest

      I woke up energized and had regular bowel movements, which is a random fact but an important one.

      I repeated my day two breakfast and lunch to keep things simple, but I switched things up after that.

      I did the last workout after my post-lunch snack and swapped out the pre-workout toast.

      Lastly, for dinner, I had salmon, avocado, asparagus, and couscous.

      I snacked on almonds almost every day of the trial and constantly had them either nearby or in my bag.

      At times, the repetitive movements were exhausting, but overall consistency and proper form were key. 

      Khloe’s regimen wasn’t as difficult or strict as I thought it would be.

      For those who frequently watch the Good American mogul on television, we know that she loves to snack, so I happily took part in it with unsalted almonds and berries.

      Cheat meals aren’t the end of the world, but Goglia advised to only take part in cheat meals once or twice a week, so you can stay focused on your long term health and fitness goals.

      Thankfully, I was full most of the day, and I had enough energy to get through my workouts, though sometimes I did modify them for my personal needs.
