For the Poosh founder, becoming a mother changed her relationship with her body. “This time, the focus is really on being a mom and being present, knowing my priorities,” she continued. “Sometimes I think, ‘Why should I work out when I can spend time with my kids?'”
“I gained a few pounds over this quarantine time, and I love my body and I’m proud of my shape and I’m obviously posting it and this is the shape of my body.’ I don’t think I look pregnant at all,” she explained in a YouTube video in 2020 after fans speculated that she was expecting a fourth baby. “We’re all shaped differently and that’s my body and I’m proud of it, so that’s how I respond to the negative comments. It’s not always easy.”
“So, obviously my body has changed but it was all of the hormones that the doctors put me on,” Kardashian, who exchanged vows with Barker earlier that year, explained to her friends during season 2 of The Kardashians in October 2022. “I think eight months of IVF treatment has definitely taken a toll on my body mentally and physically. It has taken a lot to get me to a place of feeling really comfortable and happy with the changes.”
While cameras were rolling, Kardashian recalled having to deal with criticism from strangers. “Everyone always comments on every photo that I am pregnant. Obviously, we wish for that but if it’s in God’s plan then it is,” she noted.
“When I was super skinny, it is a time when I was super anxious. [It was] not about eating or staying at a certain weight but just in toxic relationships,” she continued. “I would always say, ‘If I am super skinny just know I am not happy.'”

Kourtney Kardashian’s Quotes About Her Body Evolution, Diet and More Through the Years
“I was not raised this way — people just weren't as aware of healthy eating as they are today," she told Natural Health at the time. "When I got home from school, my snack was a bag of chips or cookies, and as an adult, I didn't even know what organic meant — I'd just go to the market and buy the same things my mom bought. I didn't really have any thoughts about it before I had my kids.”

During her second pregnancy, Kardashian broke down her different approach to food, telling Us, “I don’t eat leftovers, we don’t freeze any meat in our house, we keep everything really fresh, and I don’t reheat things because bacteria can grow on it. I try to eat as fresh, organic and healthy as possible."

"It was harder to lose weight the second time around," the California native admitted to Us after her daughter's arrival. "I definitely had some moments when the weight was at a standstill. It was frustrating and I'd start to wonder, 'Am I ever going to get my body back?' Then I'd be like, 'OK, you just had two kids. Take it easy.'"
Kardashian detailed her intermittent fasting on social media, writing, "For me, this meant not eating for 14 to 16 hours after dinner. I wouldn't eat past 7 p.m. at night, and then I would wait to eat breakfast the next day until after my morning workout, which would be around 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m.”

During an interview with GQ Mexico, Kardashian reflected on her relationship with her body. “I think it’s important to expose positive images of our body,” she shared. “I am very comfortable in my own skin. I like to be naked in my house.”

“My body never looked better than when I did the keto diet two and half years ago, when I did it for two months,” Kardashian wrote on Poosh in June 2019. “In my experience, I’ve found the best method to train my body to curb sugar cravings, burn fat and kick-start weight loss is by sticking to a keto diet.”
The TV personality later revealed she decided to try new things, telling Health Magazine in 2020, “In my house, we are gluten and dairy-free; my skin is very sensitive, and if I eat dairy, it affects it. I love doing a keto diet, though I’m not doing it now. I noticed my body change for the better.”
“I wasn’t into intense workouts when I got pregnant with Mason, and I wasn’t using a trainer at the time,” she wrote in an essay for Poosh in May 2020. “I was very into running, usually a quick two to three-mile run with some good music in my neighborhood, combined with some at-home workouts and uphill walks with the stroller.”
"My weight — I used to go so much by weight — I used to be 95 pounds. Then 105 became my new normal weight. I am 115," she explained. "I am so into my thicker body. I looked up photos of my body when I was so skinny — it is cringey."
