Being a new Mom is a tough job. Not only does it change your world, your body bears the maximum impact of those nine months. We all know shedding that post-pregnancy pounds is easier said than done. But maybe not? We dug in to take tips from no other than celebrity new mom, Khloe Kardashian! Khloe shared on her blog recently: “I’m currently on a low-carb diet that my nutritionist, Dr. Goglia, gave me. It has lots of protein, so I’m able to go all out at the gym, but the best part is that I’m never hungry because I’m always eating!”
Wonder what is involved in Khloe Kardashian’s diet? Her nutritionist reveals her post-baby diet plan. Read on and get some handy tips for yourself.
And you better listen to the man because according to Dr Goglia, ‘when it comes to nutrition and weight loss, it’s 80 percent in the kitchen and twenty percent in the gym.’
Khloe Kardashian’s day-to-day meal plan
For breakfast, she’ll have one scoop of whey protein powder with one tablespoon almond butter and a fruit of choice blended with ice and water and made into a shake.
For her second meal of the day, Kardashian will have a piece of fruit of her choice.
4oz chicken breast with vegetables and salad that is high in iron (something like beetroot and spinach).
Vegetables! So maybe one cup of celery or one cup of tomatoes with 12 almonds.
More vegetables – for this meal, she’ll have either one cup of celery or tomatoes with one egg.
For dinner, she will have fatty fish – either salmon, sea bass, black cod or artic char. This will be served with 8oz of vegetables and salad.
After dinner, Kardashian can have a piece of fruit of her choice.
Seems too tough? Here’s the silver lining:
According to Dr Goglia, this is the plan that the 32-year-old sticks to day-to-day. But that doesn’t mean she doesn’t allow herself the occasional indulgence. In fact, according to the doctor, Kardashian has a cheat meal once every week. ‘She has a pattern where she will do seven days on and then have one meal off. Her choice of cheat would vary a great deal – maybe she’ll have a slice of cake as dessert or a pizza or pasta dinner, basically whatever she has a craving for.’
He does stress though that one thing is the most important thing above all else – hydrating is the number one way to look after your body. ‘Drink your water! Always try to properly hydrate your body, regardless of her food choice or the day Khloe always makes sure to keep her water intake up.’ Dr Goglia suggests that we should be drinking 1/2 oz to 1 oz of water per each lb you weigh daily.
