For the third week in a row a bikini-clad Kardashian graces the cover of Life & Style to discuss her weight loss.
This time it is Kourtney, who gave birth to son Mason four months ago. Last month she was also on the cover in a bikini. The past two weeks her sisters Kim and Khloe hawked Quick Trim in the mag, a diet product they are paid to endorse.
Kourtney can't take Quick Trim yet since she is still breastfeeding, but she told ParentDish.com that her sisters made her some sort of shake that is safe for her son. Here is a preview of what she told Life & Style:
To get her body back into bikini shape after giving birth to son, Mason, Kourtney Kardashian developed a system that works for her body and busy life! In an exclusive interview with Life & Style, the new mom shares her ten simple secrets for getting beach-ready:
"I used to always get a chai latte from Starbucks, but I just switched to one espresso shot," Kourtney tells Life & Style. Simply swapping 16 ounces of latte for an espresso saves 235 calories! "I'm allowing myself one serving of caffeine while breastfeeding [baby Mason], and the latte was really all sugar and milk," says Kourt, who also cuts out other unnecessary calories, like those from juice and dehydrated fruits. "I was eating a lot of dried fruit, and I didn't realize how much sugar that added. And now I'll eat raw almonds instead of salted ones."
KNOW WHAT WORKS BEST FOR YOUR BODY:
Kourtney likes the few extra pounds she gained in her bottom while pregnant -- so she's found exercises that will help her keep her booty, but tone and lift it. "I want to try to do squats -- stuff that will keep the booty up there," she says about the classic power move that helps lift, tone and define the legs, quads, hamstrings and glutes.
FIND A SPORT YOU LOVE -- AND RUN WITH IT:
"I'm big on running -- just putting on my iPod Shuffle and going for a run by my house," says Kourtney, who also uses the treadmill or elliptical at her mom's house. Nutritionist Oz Garcia says choosing an enjoyable activity is half the battle. "You'll be having fun and losing weight at the same time."
KEEP YOUR MENU FRESH:
"Frozen yogurt tastes so chemically to me because I've been eating salads and salmon and chicken," Kourtney tells Life & Style. "Fresh food is so much better." Garcia agrees: "By simply cutting out processed foods, products with high sugar and the bread basket, you'll shed pounds more efficiently."
