While Khloe’s former fitness routine incorporated intense cardio and heavy lifting, Coach Joe tells LIVESTRONG.COM that, at least for the time being, those exercises aren’t part of her plan. “We’re working out in Khloe’s home gym since we don’t need a ton of weights or equipment yet,” he says. As for the exercises he has Khloe doing, there’s nothing too extreme. “If we are using weights, they’re light weights with a lot of reps. It’s mostly body weight with bands and a treadmill, and that’s enough. I don’t go really high with intensity — at least not yet.”

Low-Carb Diet

Just two months after welcoming her daughter, Kardashian is following a strict low-carb, high-protein diet. And while her meal plan may seem complicated, “it’s easier to follow than it sounds,” she says. “I’m currently on a low-carb diet that my nutritionist, Dr. [Philip] Goglia, gave me. 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!”

To start her day right, Kardashian begins by fueling herself before a morning workout with a tablespoon of jam paired with one tablespoon of almond butter. Once she is done in the gym, she eats a filling breakfast. “What you eat when you’re done working out is so important,” she explains. “I have two eggs (they can be poached, over-easy or scrambled) with one cup of oatmeal and another [cup] of fresh fruit like berries.” Also on the menu? A midmorning fruit snack (such as an apple or a banana) with a handful of almonds. Yes, please!

For lunch, Kardashian focuses on staying full and energized by eating a balanced meal. “Dr. Goglia recommends a four-ounce piece of grilled chicken breast with a half portion of a simple starch — like four ounces of yams or a half-cup of white rice along with a veggie and a salad,” she says. As for the chicken, she is able to swap it for another lean meat (only grilled, steamed, baked or broiled is allowed). “For the salad, keep it simple with an oil-based vinaigrette. Any vegetables are great, but he especially recommends those high in iron, such as spinach, beets, asparagus, broccoli or romaine,” she says.

For her final meal of the day, Kardashian dines on an eight-ounce piece of fatty fish like sea bass, black cod, arctic char or salmon paired with vegetables and a salad. “While fish is best at night for performance purposes and more rapid weight loss, you can always switch it up for a lean steak like filet flank or boneless, skinless chicken breast,” she says. “For me, I’m also adding in a half portion of a simple starch, like four ounces of yams.” And don’t think that Kardashian is skipping out on dessert! Following dinner, the reality star says that she is allowed another piece of fruit in order to keep her cravings at bay.

In regards to how many times a week Khloe is working out, Coach Joe reveals that while they aim for six workouts a week to maintain consistency, there isn’t a huge emphasis on time. “The workouts can be anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes each, and we’re not targeting areas,” he says. “I’m not saying, ‘OK, today is upper body and tomorrow is lower body, and we’re doing an hour workout.’ Instead, she’s listening to her body, and whatever her body can do, we do.”
