Khloe Kardashian Drops 10 Pounds the Right Way Before X-Factor Debut

Although Khloé Kardashian has tried her share of lose-weight-quick dieting strategies in the past, she revealed that her diet before her first appearance as co-host of The X-Factor consisted only of making healthier eating choices the old-fashioned way.

The 28-year-old told People magazine after the show that she trimmed down ten pounds by reducing her intake of sweets as well as cheese, a personal favorite indulgence, and working hard not to binge eat. She tries to keep up with a consistent exercise program and is changing her diet slowly to make sure she can realistically keep it up.

Kardashian said she’s learned that crash diets do not work long term. “When I used to do things like crash diets or things too fast, it never stuck because it wasn’t a lifestyle change,” she told reporters.

The star posed for the cover of Life & Style magazine in May 2012 for an article about how she lost 20 pounds in 20 days. Although that’s over the recommended amount of weight loss in such a short period of time, Kardashian said she did it through healthy meals prepared by her chef and extended daily workout sessions with her husband and a personal trainer.

Kardashian Sisters and QuickTrim Face $5 Million Lawsuit

Kim Kardashian along with two of her sisters are being sued for $5 million dollars for allegations the sisters and the makers of QuickTrim made false claims about the product’s weight loss effectiveness.

The Kardashian sisters had an endorsement deal with the supplement company. Their participation and the company itself came under attack when a lawsuit was filed in a New York federal court this week. The suit is on behalf of four plaintiffs from New York, California, and Florida.

The plaintiffs stated that the claims made by QuickTrim and their spokeswomen, the Kardashians, were “false, misleading, and unsubstantiated.” In addition, the suit stated that there was “no competent and reliable scientific evidence supporting any of these claims.”

According to the lawsuit, QuickTrim’s main ingredient is a large dose of caffeine and various herbal ingredients. It’s claimed that the supplement was never clinically proven as effective.

Buyer Beware of Raspberry Ketone Scams

If it’s too good to be true, it probably is. With raspberry ketones being touted as the newest weight loss “miracle” it’s my job to weed through all the information and give you the facts. The fact is there are lots of online con artists feeding into the raspberry ketone craze. Here are some tips of how to recognize a scam product.

Step 1: Site Reliability

If you’re looking to purchase raspberry ketones what I imagine most people would do is a simple online search. Once you find a site where you can purchase the product, scroll down to the bottom and find out when the site was copyrighted or created. If it says 2012 it may just be someone trying to jump on the ketone bandwagon and may not be a reliable or legitimate site. As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, websites like Amazon.com or Drugstore.com are established sites that are concerned with customer service and satisfaction. I feel there you’d be more likely to get the product and be able to return it if you were unhappy with it.

Kourtney Kardashian Having Trouble Getting Nutrients During Second Pregnancy

When Kourtney Kardashian was pregnant with her son Mason in 2009, she maintained a strict diet and gained a healthy 40 pounds, which she shed quickly after the birth using the weight loss supplement QuickTrim.

Kardashian recently confirmed that she is expecting her second child with longtime boyfriend Scott Disick and says that this time, her diet will be different.

“I’m just eating whatever I can,” Kardashian has said. “Whatever I can tolerate. I think this [pregnancy] there is less I can tolerate.”

While many nutrition experts agree that listening to your body is an important part of eating a healthy diet during pregnancy, it is still key to eat a variety of foods. Moms-to-be who have morning sickness, intense cravings or lack appetite may have a more difficult time getting the nutrients, vitamins, and minerals they need.

Weight Gain Affects Khloe Kardashian’s Self-Image

Khloe Kardashian has said that she is always fighting up and down fluctuations in her weight. Even after a year and a half as a spokesmodel for QuickTrim diet and weight loss supplements, along with sisters Kim and Kourtney, she says that she has let herself go and re-gained the weight she had lost. Prior to marrying NBA player Lamar Odom, Khloe reported that she had lost 30 pounds with the QuickTrim supplements and increased exercise. She was even featured on E!’s “Remarkable Celebrity Body Bouncebacks.”

The variance can be seen in all the paparazzi photos of Khloe. Sometimes it is even difficult to recognize her. Khloe told Perez Hilton that she avoids reading what is written about her, yet comments about her weight still impact her. She is quoted, “I feel like no matter what I do, I never look good enough to everybody else.”
