Even though new mom Kourtney Kardashian already got a “How I Lost the Baby Weight” bikini cover (see the post HERE!) just a few weeks ago, she is back in a tabloid and back in a bikini – plus this time, she reveals her weight loss plan. In case you’re curious, here it is (from Life & Style):
â€œI used to always get a chai latte from Starbucks, but I just switched to one espresso shot,â€ Kourtney tells Life & Style. Simply swapping 16 ounces of latte for an espresso saves 235 calories! â€œI’m allowing myself one serving of caffeine while breastfeeding [baby Mason], and the latte was really all sugar and milk,â€ says Kourt, who also cuts out other unnecessary calories, like those from juice and dehydrated fruits. â€œI was eating a lot of dried fruit, and I didn’t realize how much sugar that added. And now I’ll eat raw almonds instead of salted ones.â€
KNOW WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOUR BODY:
Kourtney likes the few extra pounds she gained in her bottom while pregnant – so she’s found exercises that will help her keep her booty, but tone and lift it. â€œI want to try to do squats – stuff that will keep the booty up there,â€ she says about the classic power move that helps lift, tone and define the legs, quads, hamstrings and glutes.
FIND A SPORT YOU LOVE – AND RUN WITH IT:
â€œI’m big on running – just putting on my iPod Shuffle and going for a run by my house,â€ says Kourtney, who also uses the treadmill or elliptical at her mom’s house. Nutritionist Oz Garcia says choosing an enjoyable activity is half the battle. â€œYou’ll be having fun and losing weight at the same time.â€
KEEP YOUR MENU FRESH:
â€œFrozen yogurt tastes so chemically to me because I’ve been eating salads and salmon and chicken,â€ Kourtney tells Life & Style. â€œFresh food is so much better.â€ Garcia agrees: â€œBy simply cutting out processed foods, products with high sugar and the bread basket, you’ll shed pounds more efficiently.â€
