No longer the self-proclaimed “fat sister,” Khloé Kardashian is the ultimate #fitspiration these days, after dropping around 40 lbs.

The reality star is committed to living healthier, and with these five changes — ones she made a huge part of her new lifestyle — you can look this good posing nude too.

1. Have Healthy Snacks Prepped and Ready

“I always have healthy items available to me when I’m hungry, so it’s available quickly. I’d rather eat a cookie than cut up vegetables, but now I don’t have an excuse.”

2. Chug Lots of …Water

“Water flushes you out and makes you feel better. In the hospital, all I drank was water. I was like a fish!”

3. Allow Occasional Treats — But Don’t Go Crazy

“I don’t deprive myself. I am still the person who is going to have a piece of cake, I just won’t have two of them!”

And when Kardashian has a severe craving, she has her go-to cheat foods.

“I’ll have a handful of M&M’s or a piece of pizza. If I drink, I have one or two glasses. It’s about understanding limitations.”

4. Eat Something Post-Workout to Avoid Hanger

“I always have fruit around. And I have a protein shake on the car ride home from the gym. Otherwise I get cranky!”

5. Focus on How Much Better You Feel

“I started having long-term feel-good moments from the gym. You don’t have long-term feel-good moments from pizza.”

She forgot to mention the liposuction to take fat from her stomach and put it in her butt!

Kelly on

She looks great! I always thought she was the prettiest one of the bunch. Now that she lost weight, it clearly shows. Kim has way too much Botox in her face, I can barely look at her. The oldest one looks good too, but she looks boring. There is no spark in her.

isa on

And how does she explain how her butt magically gets bigger, while she loses weight everywhere else?

I’m all for self improvement/ healthy habits BUT I thought she looked great last year. She has this sudden transformation and its obvious she has had work done. I can’t help but notice the nose to….These girls use to look like ethnic beauties but now their more on the plastic hollywood look.😦

mic on

Anna Jones on

Hanger? As in clothes hanger?

Dana on

She still would better without the plastic surgery and butt implants.

VirgotheVirgin on

The game is lie, lie, lie. Everyone knows she’s had major plastic surgery. She didn’t get that face from losing weight. Bruce’s doc probably helped with the “contouring.” As for the body, oh puhlease….liposuction works wonders.

Lily on

Hanger = hungry anger. Being angry or cranky because you’re hungry.

Pam on

Don’t you just hate it when stars refuse to admit when they’ve had plastic surgery?

AWF on

All good and reasoable advice to follow when trying to be healthier.

Dido24 on

Drink water, eat healthy, workout…Yeah, duh! All celebs say the same darn thing.
