Keeping Up With Khloe Kardashian’s Postpartum Low-Carb Diet
Last month, the youngest of three Kardashian sisters, Khloe Kardashian, gave birth to baby girl True with boyfriend Tristan Thompson. Throughout the course of her pregnancy, the reality star kept followers updated with all that she ate, did, and wore. And carrying on that streak, Mama Koko is now documenting her post-baby workouts and diet.
“I’m currently on a low-carb diet that my nutritionist, Dr. Goglia, gave me,” she wrote in a post on her app on Monday. “It has lots of protein, so I’m able to go all out at the gym, but the best part is that I’m never hungry because I’m always eating!” The 33-year-old added that though challenging to hear, the diet is “easier to follow than it sounds.”
Powering Through Postpartum
So what is this Kardashian eating to power her way through the postpartum phase? Khloe’s diet regime includes a pre-workout snack of one tablespoon of any jam with one tablespoon of almond butter and a post-workout breakfast of two eggs with one cup of oatmeal and one cup of fresh fruit. This is followed by a mid-morning snack, which is another fruit like an apple or a banana. And then comes lunch.
“For lunch, Dr. Goglia recommends a four-ounce piece of grilled chicken breast with a half portion of a simple starch, like four ounces of yam or a half cup of white rice, along with a veggie and a salad. Because I recently gave birth, I’m still eating a full portion of starch right now,” Kardashian wrote. “For the salad, keep it simple with an oil-based vinaigrette. Any vegetables are great, but he especially recommends those high in iron, like spinach, beets, asparagus, broccoli or romaine. You can also swap out the chicken for another lean meat, but make sure it’s grilled, steamed, baked or broiled.”
She recommends adding lots of nuts, fruits, and vegetables to the diet in order to stay energized avoid hunger pangs through the day. That does sound like a promising diet and going by her social media posts, it’s working wonders too!
