Melt your love handles with the help of these insider tips from the Kardashian clan.
If you think bringing up Donald Trump is a surefire way to start a party debate, try bringing up the Kardashian family. From Kim’s famous assets and Kylie’s medically-enhanced lips to Caitlyn’s buzzed-about transition to womanhood, everyone has a different opinion about the first family of E! One thing that’s not up for debate, though, is that they’re all in ridiculous shape. Great genetics? Oh, for sure. But they all work their butts off and eat right to maintain their famous physiques.
THEY EMBRACE FULL-FAT
“In our house, we do everything whole: whole milk and full-fat cheeses. And I use ghee and coconut oil for cooking,” Kourtney, mom of three, said in a recent interview.
Why It’s Smart: While full-fat dairy packs more calories, it’s also more filling. That may help explain why a 2013 study found that people who eat the fatty stuff are less likely to suffer from obesity than those who try and skip the calories with low-fat dairy. The study authors also found no ties between full-fat dairy and heart disease or diabetes. Ironically, some acids in milk fat—ones you don’t get from zero-fat varieties—may crank up your body’s calorie-burning centers, says study coauthor Mario Kratz, Ph.D.
Kendall, Kylie, and Kourtney have admitted to sipping detox tea to lose weight stay slim.
Why It’s Smart: One 10-year Taiwanese study of more than 1,100 people found that those who drank tea had nearly 20 percent less body fat than those who drank none. Since different teas have different health benefits—ranging from fat loss to stress reduction. Test panelists who followed the plan lost up to 4 inches from their waist!
THEY RISE & GRIND

Why It’s Smart: Though it can be difficult for many people to workout before heading to the office, it’s worth trying to swing it. Fitting in your workout first thing in the morning ensures you’ll fit in a sweat session no matter how crazy your day gets. Bonus: you’ll have more time for after work fun if your workout is already out of the way.
THEY FIND WHAT WORKS FOR THEM
Instead of following a popular fad diet, the Kardashians find what works for them—and the masses seem to follow. Earlier this year, for example, Khloé Kardashian gave up dairy and lost 11 pounds—without changing any other aspect of her regimen. (Unsurprisingly, tons of regular folks ditched the cheese and milk to see if it would work for them, too.) Kim on the other hand, follows the Atkins 40 plan, while Kourtney has a more organic, holistic approach to nutrition.
Why It’s Smart: While going Paleo may have worked for your friend, it’s not going to work for you if you’re totally obsessed with bread. The key to weight loss success if finding an eating regimen that genuinely enjoy. This ensures you’ll be able to stick to it long enough to see lasting results.
THEY DRINK LIKE FISH
Kim Kardashian’s #1 weight loss tip? “Drink more water. You’d be surprised the difference drinking more water can make to your weight loss mission and workouts,” says the mom of two.
Why It’s Smart: Experts agree that this is a smart move. “Water may just be the best pre-workout supplement when you’re looking to shed weight. Studies have shown that strength training while in a dehydrated state can boost levels of stress hormones that hinder muscle gains by up to 16 percent, says celebrity fitness and nutrition expert, Jay Cardiello. “When a client is looking to trim down, I tell them to drink at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water each day and at least 8 ounces during their workouts.”!
