Miss Khloe Kardashian finally lost the extra 20 pounds she has been complaining about since her debut on reality television! Now everyone can stop wondering if she’s pregnant and just leave the poor girl alone. Life & Style’s May issue featured a gorgeous pic of her in a bikini, showing off her new and improved bod. If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands, Khloe!
Of course, she didn’t just wake up this way. Khloe started working out and doing the most important thing: eating right! If you’re going to the gym religiously every day, and then eating a big, juicy pizza after, this post is for you. When you’re eating that greasy pizza, all that hard work is going right out the window…and that pizza straight to your hips! We want to share Life & Style’s diet tips with you so you can eat great and look that way too, just like Khloe. It’s time to buckle down, ladies. Summer is here!
Every meal should be focused on lean proteins, non-starchy vegetables and grains, and fresh fruit. Create a variety of meals for yourself with these key ingredients and you’ll have a toned beach bod in no time. To start you off, we’re going give you a whole day’s worth of meal ideas, with snacks included. We know it’s tempting to sneak in a snack in every once and a while, so you might as well make it a healthy one.
Cook yourself a carrot-and-grain omelet with 2 eggs, a ½ a cup of shredded carrots and a ¼ cup of cooked quinoa. If you’re a die-hard health junkie, go for egg whites instead.
If you’re not into eggs, grab 1 cup of fresh fruit, ¼ cup of whole milk, a small Greek yogurt and a handful of almonds. Mix them up and you have your eggless option. If you can stomach skim milk instead of whole milk, go for it, girl.
Get in touch with your Mediterranean side and put 1 cup of hummus and 1 cup of broccoli on a plate. Dress it up with a small side salad. If you don’t like broccoli, substitute it for a different veggie.
Make a wrap without the wrap! Grab 2 slices of turkey and wrap them in lettuce leaves along with chopped onion and parsley. Remember: bread is the enemy.
For those of you who love Japanese cuisine, find fresh sushi or sashimi, for example, tuna, and pair it with 1 cup of brown rice, 1 cup of steamed veggies and a ¼ cup of seaweed to make a salad.
If you cannot even think about eating sushi, grill a piece of protein (chicken, fish or shrimp) and pair it with ½ a cup of brown rice and lots of steamed veggies dressed in organic lemon juice. Yum!
Snacks (the best part):
Let’s face it: you have to stick to small portions and plain foods to see results. But once you do, your bikini will thank you!
