Kim Kardashian West Diet and Workout Routine
Kim Kardashian may have gotten famous through her family’s E! reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, but since then, she’s created a massive beauty and shapewear empire, become a mama of four with husband Kanye West, and is currently studying to become a lawyer (more on that later). Her life is full to the brim with good things, and over the years she’s shared her tips and tricks for how she stays healthy, happy, and sane. Here are 40 of her best health and wellness habits.
If there’s one body that’s captivated the entire world, it’s that of Kim Kardashian West. But attaining her famous physique was definitely no easy feat—and can be credited to a rigorous diet and exercise routine.

Kardashian works on her body six days a week, focusing mainly on endurance fitness and core strength. She also rarely strays from her strict diet routine, all of which has helped her regain her fitness following two intense pregnancies (her third and fourth children, Chicago and Psalm, were delivered via a surrogate).
She sticks to a plant-based diet.
“I live a healthy life and try to eat as plant-based as possible and drink sea moss smoothies,” she previously told Poosh.
She makes time for herself.
“With all the stress in life, I try to make sure I take time for myself so that I am centered and keep my stress to a minimum,” she previously told Poosh.
She stays on top of her autoimmune disease.
Kim was diagnosed with psoriasis when she was 13, and this past year, she was diagnosed with psoriatic arthritis. “It’s still painful and scary, but I was happy to have a diagnosis. No matter what autoimmune condition I had, I was going to get through it, and they are all manageable with proper care,” she told Poosh.
She indulges in her favorite dessert: ice cream
Kim believes in moderation and treating herself. “Haagen-Dazs is my biggest indulgence—their Dulce de Leche flavor is my favorite thing in life,” Kim shared via E! News.
While Kim may perhaps be more famous for her butt, she dedicates an entire workout to her abs, her personal trainer Alcantara has said. Some go-to moves to keep Kim’s abs poppin’ include lying leg raises, reverse V-ups, and bicycle crunches. (Try Kim’s complete abs workout.).

DIET: Atkins diet: There’s a reason Kardashian West has managed to maintain her figure post-pregnancy, and it’s mainly thanks to her past devotion to the Atkins diet. The Atkins diet is known for almost completely cutting out carbohydrate intake and instead incorporating an abundance of protein and healthy fats, similar to the Dukan diet that Kate Middleton reportedly swears by.However, after going cold-turkey on carbs, Atkins encourages you to re-introduce them back into your diet in small portions, so as to avoid complete carb deprivation.
EXERCISE: Discipline: Part of Kardashian West’s workout secret, aside from her penchant for weightlifting, is her reluctance to ever cancel a workout or give up (as cliché as that might sound).Alcantara told Women’s Health that “badass mom” Kim will never cancel on her, no matter how early it is or how busy her day looks. Alcantara said that Kim is “super responsible, she never cancels—she’s the best client and athlete you could have.”Her dedication is admirable, but Alcantara says that once working out is a part of your routine, that you’ll never even consider canceling. “Once [working out is] part of your daily routine and your life, then it’s not something you have to think about, you just have to do it.”
DIET: No Processed Foods: Kim’s trainer Melissa Alcantara has said she came over to Kardashian West house and purged her pantry of anything unhealthy or unnecessarily processed. Some of these products included “vanilla wafers, graham crackers, and rice crispy treats”, according to E! Australia.With Alcantara in charge of her health regimen, it’s safe to say that KKW is beholden to a fairly rigorous diet.
