Khloé Kardashian Reveals the Real Reason She Works Out So Early In the Morning

Khloé Kardashian cares a lot about staying healthy. She has become very intense with her workouts and diets, but it’s all in her trying to be the best version of herself. Kardashian wakes up early every morning and has said that she works out as early as 5:30 a.m. But there is one reason why — and it’s not because of her busy work schedule.

Khloé Kardashian has an intense workout regimen

When Keeping Up with the Kardashians first premiered, Kardashian was looked at as the odd one out in her family. Her two older sisters, Kourtney and Kim Kardashian, looked very similar and had different body types than Khloé Kardashian. For this reason, fans used to pick on Kardashian and suggest that she wasn’t a real member of her family.

As the Kardashians became more famous, and as Kardashian started to go through her separation and divorce from Lamar Odom, she also decided she wanted to be the best version of herself. And working out, along with a healthy diet, started to give her much more confidence. These days, Kardashian hits the gym six days per week, and she told her Instagram followers that she feels “really accomplished” every time she does an intense workout.  

Kardashian stays healthy by eating 7 meals per day

Kardashian spends a lot of time working out, but she also puts a lot of focus into what she eats. Philip Goglia, Kardashian’s nutritionist, said that seven meals per day is what’s best for Kardashian’s body type (though he cautioned that all body types are different, and one plan doesn’t work for everyone). Kardashian eats fish or lean meat every night for dinner, such as salmon with spinach and asparagus. Goglia told People that he reminds Kardashian to eat the healthy food first before digging into any of the “crap,” such as a plate of nachos on the table while dining out.

Fruits and vegetables make up a huge part of Kardashian’s diet. Though she still indulges now and then, she is always sure to include plenty of fresh fruit and veggies in her meal plan, such as fruit for a snack and a vegetable to pair with dinner.

Kardashian wakes up early because she works around her daughter’s schedule

Kardashian works out very early in the morning. She told fans that she often wakes up as early as 5:30 a.m. While some suspected it was because of the reality star’s hectic work schedule, it’s actually for a different reason: her daughter, True. Kardashian said she bases her morning routine “around True’s schedule.”

“I, of course, am always there to wake her up. We have breakfast together,” Kardashian told her Instagram followers in a video posted to her story on January 6. “Those traditions and routines are super important for me, to have breakfast with my daughter every day.” Kardashian loves spending time with True; she often posts photos of her daughter to social media and makes sure to carve out some quality time with True each day. Her early-morning workouts are probably worth it for every ounce of time she gets to spend with her little girl.
