She’s a lady with a (meal) plan! Kourtney Kardashian is giving others a peek into what she eats each day while on the keto diet, a notoriously strict eating regimen that forbids foods such as grains, beans and sugary juices.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star has been on and off the keto diet multiple times over the past several years and started it again for a third time in June 2020.
“The high-fat diet has made its way back into Kourt’s kitchen. As she’s shared before, her doctor has her practice keto for brief periods of time to help detox metals and toxins from her body,” a post on her Poosh website explained in July 2020. The reality star uses a glucose and ketone meter to monitor her blood sugar levels in order to check whether or not she’s in ketosis.
The post also noted that while Kardashian “personally loves being on a keto plan,” it’s not suitable for everyone and those interested in giving it a try should consult a doctor first “to ensure it’s a fit for your overall health.”
One of the Kourtney & Kim Take New York alum’s go-to meals while on keto is an avocado smoothie. The healthy beverage, which the star drinks for breakfast most mornings, contains a pitted avocado, macadamia nut milk, vanilla bone broth, Stevia, to add a touch of sweetness, and a handful of other ingredients.
Though the California native usually chooses between one of two veggie-filled salads for lunch, she also allows herself a “treat” every now and again. As she explained in the Poosh post, some of her recent indulgences included four small slices of the LHC x Poosh cake (which didn’t even knock her out of ketosis) and a cheeseburger (without the bun,) which she enjoyed while at sister Khloé Kardashian’s house.
Kourtney, who was previously on the keto diet in June 2019 and again in 2017, defended it on her Instagram Stories in July 2020, writing, “Diabetes does run in my family and my dr. also has me check my glucose levels while doing keto for those questioning that too … Thank you all for your concern.”
She continued: “And to all of you saying keto is unhealthy, my dr. has me do it for brief periods to help detox metals or toxins.”
As she explained while on the diet in June 2019: “My plan this time is to eat minimal carbs and no grains, beans or legumes. I’m focusing my meals on fresh vegetables and lean proteins. I eat three meals a day with no snacking in between, if possible.”
