How Kourtney Kardashian Stays So Fit, from Cutting Sugar to Booty-Toning Workouts
Kourtney Kardashian's Wellness Secrets
She Does Booty Workouts
Kardashian pays extra attention to her glutes during training sessions. Her go-to butt-toning moves include leg kick-backs using a resistance band and weighted squat cleans using a kettlebell or sandbag.
She Avoids Sugar
"When I eat sugar, I find that more cellulite appears,” Kardashian previously said.
The reality star doesn't drink soda and makes her own salad dressings at home. She's also careful about what alcohol she drinks.
"When I do drink, I go for either tequila on the rocks, beer or wine," she said. "If you’re cutting down on sugar, it’s good to know that rosé wine usually has less sugar than red or white.”
She Also Avoids Gluten and Dairy
Kardashian believes sticking to a gluten and dairy-free diet has been a postive life change for both herself and her children — Mason, 7, Peneleope, 4, and Reign, 2.
“I kept battling with myself back and forth — like, why am I doing this diet? I have always felt fine before when eating dairy and gluten, but I do believe that we have one life to live and I would like to live it feeling my best,” Kardashian previously said. “I have noticed a great positive change in behavior with my children when we stick to a gluten-free and dairy-free diet. I don’t think everyone needs to eat this way but we had muscle testing done, which showed we all have sensitivities to corn, gluten and dairy.”
She Makes Working Out a Family Affair
She Drinks Apple Cider Vinegar Daily
“I drink a glass of water mixed with 2 tbsp. of apple cider vinegar twice a day (in the morning and at night),” Kardashian has said.
(Drinking apple cider vinegar may help with weight loss. A 2009 study from Japan found that swallowing two tablespoons of diluted apple cider vinegar twice a day with meals helped people lose about 4 lbs. after 12 weeks.)
She Only Eats Organic Foods
Khloé has said that her older sister is so strict about only eating organic foods that Kourtney will toss out anything non-organic that she spots in her kitchen.
“I think it’s important to eat organic, but there are definitely times when I run to my local big-box store for groceries,” Khloé said. “When that happens, Kourtney will straight-up look through my fridge and if she sees something that is not organic, she’ll give it away!”
She Sticks to Her Workouts on Vacation
Kardashian shared Snaps last summer from her Bahamas vacation workout, which included bikini-clad lunges.
She Drinks Ghee
“I have been eating it for years because my grandmother made it, not even knowing what it was,” Kardashian has said in the past. “Now I drink it every morning; I have one teaspoon. You melt it and you drink it first thing in the morning, and then you can’t eat or drink anything for twenty minutes after. It has to be the first thing in your stomach.”
