Khloé Kardashian and her big sister Kim Kardashian West are both in incredible shape, but according to KoKo, it takes her a lot more work to get there. The Revenge Body star stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday and told the host about the difference between her workouts and Kim’s.
« Kim does work out. She works out all the time, but they’re not intense workouts. I work out like an animal, » Khloé said and told DeGeneres about a time they planned to workout together in Costa Rica and her big sister overslept.
« I’m like, how do you have this body? I can’t handle people like that. I’m literally like a man drenched and like a beast and growling in the gym. And she’s just like lifting a weight, being cute. I wish that was me, I’m jealous. »
According to Khloé, the difference is in their digestive systems.
« My nutritionist said, ‘Your sister has the metabolism of a Ferrari and you have one of a Honda Civic.’ I was like, you just summed up my whole life right there. Kim’s the Ferrari; I’m the Honda, » she joked.
It took her dad Robert Kardashian’s death and later her divorce from Lamar Odom for her to recognize a problem in how she handled stress. « I realized from my dad’s death and through my divorce, I always would eat my emotions and that was something I didn’t realize I was doing. I was like, OK, every time I was sad or stressed out, I would eat, eat, eat, » she said.
« And then from my divorce, I started realizing, OK, well, all that stuff didn’t work before. And I went to the gym and it was such a stress reliever and then as a byproduct I started losing weight. And then I realized, OK this is a way to deal with stress instead of eating the three pizzas I secretly just ordered. »
Nowadays, Khloé is happily dating Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson, and while she’s eating healthy, she likes to cook him comfort food. « I love to cook. I cook not-healthy meals. I like big, hearty, fun meals, but I love to cook. Every Sunday I try to do something that I’ve never done before. I’ve made homemade jam. I like to make things that I’ve never tried, just to see if I could do it, » she told DeGeneres.
« He actually has a game on Valentine’s Day so I will be with him after the game, » she told the host. « I’ll probably cook dinner, have food waiting for him when he comes home, maybe look a little sexy. »
