Khloe Kardashian recently opened up about her weight loss regimen which the reality TV star implemented in preparation for her "X-Factor" co-hosting gig.
Kardashian, 28, has openly struggled with weight issues on her family's various E! network reality TV shows, and in a new interview, she admits that although losing weight has been difficult, her current weight loss plan has so far proven to be effective.
"I'm working out consistently, three to five days a week," Khloé told Life & Style magazine. "I'm not where I want to be … but it's a lifestyle change."
The Quicktrim Ambassador made no mention of the controversial weight loss supplement, and instead attributed her substantial weight loss to an altered diet and grueling workouts.
"I tried to cut out a lot of sweets, I'm just changing my diet slowly," she said. The reality star allegedly still allows herself to consume red meat, cake and rosé champagne, but in smaller portions.
"If I do too much too soon ... I know I'll go back and binge eat – and cry. [Staying in shape] is always going to be a lifelong thing for me," Kardashian explained.
The E! star recently made her "X-Factor" debut alongside renowned TV presenter Mario Lopez and Kardashian's flawless appearance set tongues wagging. Some critics have also attributed the talent show's reported boost in ratings to Kardashian.
"Some 7.4 million viewers watched [Khloe's debut on] 'The X Factor' on Fox television, according to early ratings data, up some 30 percent from last week's 5.7 million and a 13 percent increase in the 18-49 age group most coveted by advertisers," Yahoo News reported.
Popular celebrity personal trainer Gunnar Peterson was hired to help Kardashian shed pounds and he recently spoke out about her weight loss progress.
"I write different workouts for every day. There is no routine – that's the routine," Peterson said about Kardashian's regimen. "Her intensity is unbelievable. She's there 20 minutes early and never stops for the entire 60 minutes."
