Find out what Kim K’s secret is to a healthy Weight Loss!
Whether you love ‘em or you hate ‘em, celebrities and influencers alike spend most of their time posing for yet another photo, constantly in the spotlight and carefully observed by the public eye. As lucrative as this may turn out to be for many of them, the ladies we admire the most, our lovely Kim included, need to be extremely mindful of their lifestyle choices.
Due to constant scrutiny and the desire to protect their image, celebs are continuously looking for yet another beauty hack or fitness tip to make sure they look and feel their best. This time, let’s go over what Kim has done to protect her curves while slimming down after giving birth, and how she handles her workouts and diet essentials to maintain her hourglass figure.
Cut the sugar as much as you can
Believe it or not, even Kim has her own fair share of struggles when it comes to resisting an occasional sweet snack. She, much like you and I, loves to munch on sweets, making it all the more difficult to keep the pounds at bay. This is why one of her own diet rules includes curbing sugar cravings and afternoon energy slumps with optimal nutrition.
For starters, consider abandoning sugar from your diet, or at least cutting it out in increments until you consume none or as little as possible. Processed sugar and sweets in general have a tendency to be filled with empty calories, making it almost impossible to shed fat properly.
Structure your own winning team
Let’s face it, no matter how much you try to mimic any celeb’s lifestyle and their healthy habits, there’s one ingredient that makes all the difference: their team. Kim and her sisters are surrounded by professionals, including Kim’s famous personal trainer, Melissa Alcantara, who helps her stay in top shape for every occasion. They also seek advice from an army of experts who can help them stay on track with their fitness goals.
The key takeaway for you? If you want Kardashian-worthy results, you should find a dietician who can help you personalize your own eating plan according to your lifestyle and weight loss goals. Working with a personal trainer also brings numerous benefits such as ongoing motivation, professional advice, and constant supervision. The same applies to your diet and nutrition needs!
Don’t skimp on protein
Diets come and go, some claiming miracle results in virtually no time, others promising healthy changes within a normal timeframe. If there’s a single thing they all have in common, it’s that they emphasize we all need to consume protein. This building block of life seems to have helped Kim curb her appetite and stay on the right track with her dietary restrictions.
In fact, using protein as the key ingredient in your diet helps you retain energy and feel full for hours on end – which means you can finally say goodbye to those mid-day energy slumps. Whether it’s lean chicken and turkey, or plant-based protein, it’s important to add healthy carbs to your protein as well, to consume plenty of fiber, vitamins, and minerals. If you manage to stay devoted to your protein intake, you will slowly notice how your hunger melts away pretty much at the same rate as those unwanted pounds.
Build that muscle
Now that you know that protein is one of the most reliable nutrients in your diet to keep your belly happy and your figure fit, how about putting all of that protein to work? Kim has recently revealed that she follows her intense workout program religiously, every day, so as to stay slim, toned, and strong.
Her workout is based on high-intensity interval training as well as lifting heavy weights at the gym, with just a splash of occasional cardio. Why? Because the combo of lifting and HIIT is so good it will burn calories more efficiently than steady-state cardio, it takes less time, and it builds strength, stamina, and a stunning posture. It’s time to hit those weights, ladies!
Amp up on your water intake
Not so much of a secret, but still a typically overlooked lifestyle factor when it comes to weight loss, hydration plays a vital role in the process. Take it from Kim, who makes sure she has her water intake is high enough to manage all those hardcore workouts, and to follow her diet plan.
In addition to changing how you eat, dropping sugar from your diet, and keeping up with the Kardashians at the gym, make sure to start monitoring your water intake. This single step might be the one to tip the scales in your favor when it comes to shedding those love handles.
