Khloé Kardashian talks about how her body image has changed since losing weight, and spills the details on how much Kim, Kylie and Kourtney really work out
“I didn’t work out with Kourtney for so long, because I had always thought she was a baby, and I cannot work out with whiners,” Khloé, 32, tells Health for their Jan/Feb issue, on newsstands Dec. 23. “I’m a badass. But then I worked out with Kourtney, and I was like, ‘Oh my God, she’s super badass, too. She’s a beast.’ “
But Khloé says it’s a different story with two of her other sisters.
“Kim and Kylie are the worst,” she says. “They perspire, and they look so pretty, and they don’t really do much. I’m like, ‘How do you guys have those bodies?’ “
“Kim can eat anything, and I’m like, ‘I hate you.’ The nutritionist was like, ‘Kim has a body like a Ferrari, and you have a body like a Honda.’ I was like, ‘Yep, that sounds about right. That’s my life — you just summed it up right there,’ ” Khloé says, laughing.
But as she steadily dropped over 40 lbs., Khloé’s body image changed. Through her new healthy lifestyle she found confidence and self acceptance, and has embraced her body much like model Ashley Graham.
“With the Ashley Grahams of the world, it’s like a body revolution,” she says. “I love that this is a social change. I love that pop culture now has realistic body images for women to look up to, especially for kids. Because when I was younger, it was only heroin-chic.”

And now, with her new denim line, Good American, Khloé is trying to make jeans shopping a little bit easier for all women.
“I love women of all shapes and sizes,” she says. “I love empowering women, and I’m obsessed with confident women. I really felt the need to have a wide-range line. I hate using the word ‘plus size.’ “
With social media, she of course still gets critiques about her body. But Khloé doesn’t let them bother her.
“Some people are like, ‘I liked you better when you were fat.’ I get body shamed now that I work out!” she says. “But I don’t care what weight I am. It’s genuinely about me being healthy.”
