Kourtney Kardashian has revealed her typical daily diet, as well as the food she tries to avoid, while the mother of three starts the keto diet.
The 40-year-old reality TV star revealed that she started the ketogenic diet – an eating plan consisting of eating less carbohydrates and more fats – for the second time on her lifestyle website poosh.
She outlined what she normally eats every day, and also the food she avoids, because she said she never looked better & # 39; then when she used the diet two years ago.

Confident: the 40-year-old (pictured around the time she first did it in 2017) said her body never looked & # 39; never looked better & # 39; then when she clung to the Keto diet
Her blog post began: & # 39; Sweet summertime is finally here. The sun is up, the sky is blue and the children are not in school.
& # 39; We wait for summer all year round, and when it finally turns, I want to look good and feel good, & # 39; she added.
What is the Keto diet?
- A low-fat, sufficiently protein-rich and low-carbohydrate diet
- The goal is to get more calories from proteins and fat than from carbohydrates
- It works by removing your body from its supply of sugar
- This causes your body to break down protein and fat for energy, resulting in a metabolic process known as ketosis

The Keeping Up with The Kardashian star explained that she thinks her body never looked as good as it did when she did the keto diet two and a half years ago.
She explained: “In my experience, I have found the best method to train my body to curb the need for sugar, burn fat, and stimulate weight loss by following a keto diet.”
According to Medical news today, the keto diet refers to a ketogenic diet, which is low in fat, high in protein and low in carbohydrate.
The main purpose of the nutrition plan is to extract more calories from proteins and fat than from carbohydrates.
It works by depleting your body from its supply of sugar, so that the protein and fat will break down for energy, creating ketosis.
Ketosis is a metabolic process in which fat contains most of the body's fuel, rather than energy from food that is eaten.
Kourtney explained that she wanted to go back to the diet because she has been treating herself to & # 39; and she wants & # 39; back on track & # 39; come.
She said: & # 39; Everyone is different, so I recommend you consult a doctor before starting on new eating habits. I wanted to explain why I restart my keto journey and how I make it work for my lifestyle. & # 39;
Meal Plans: She explained that she has an avocado smoothie for breakfast, while for lunch she usually has a & # 39; protein-based & # 39; has a salad with turkey, a base of mixed vegetables and proteins
Nutritious: She said she keeps her dinners simple, usually with chicken or salmon, with cauliflower rice or broccoli rice
Snacks: Although she says she doesn't try to eat snacks during the keto diet, she says she has green tea or bone broth when she & # 39; boost & # 39; want
The 40-year-old said she first started the diet a few years ago when her doctor advised her to try for a & # 39; metal detox & # 39 ;.
& # 39; He tested my muscles and discovered that I had high levels of mercury and lead in my system. He told me that one of the quickest ways to detox was to keep my body capable of ketosis, & she said.
Kourtney & # 39; s typical daily diet menu with keto
Breakfast: avocado smoothie
Lunch: salad with turkey, a base of mixed greens and proteins
Dinner: Chicken or salmon with cauliflower rice or broccoli rice
Snacks: green tea, bone broth or nuts
& # 39; I had a very positive experience last time and wanted to restart my routine this summer.
& # 39; It is definitely a more restrictive eating plan, but I found that once I knew the basic rules, I was very strict and really sticked to it.
& # 39; This time my plan is to eat minimal carbohydrates and no grains, beans or legumes. I focus my meals on fresh vegetables and lean proteins.
& # 39; I eat three meals a day without a snack in between, & # 39; she added.
She explained that she usually has an avocado smoothie for breakfast recipe for which she shared on her website.
However, she replaces manuka honey and dates with & # 39; a few drops of Stevia & # 39 ;, which is more suitable for the keto diet.
For lunch, Kourtney said she had a & # 39; protein-based & # 39; salad with turkey, a basis of mixed vegetables and proteins.
She keeps her dinners simple, usually they eat chicken or salmon, with cauliflower rice or broccoli rice.
Avoid: Kourtney has listed a number of foods that she often avoids during the keto diet, including processed foods, fruits, grains or starch and alcohol
Kickstart: & # 39; I had a very positive experience lately and wanted to restart my routine this summer, & # 39; said Kourtney
Feel good: Presented last month by sisters Kendall (L) and Khloe (R), Kourtney said that she's been treating herself & # 39; and she wants & # 39; back on track & # 39; come
Although she said she was not trying to eat snacks during the keto diet, she said she would have green tea, bone broth or nuts to give her a & # 39; boost & # 39; to give if she needs it.
She said she avoids a number of different foods, including those that have been processed and that & # 39; sugary & # 39; including & # 39; honey, soda, fruit juice, smoothies, cake, ice cream, candy. & # 39;
Back to normal: She said she would do the diet for about a month before returning to her normal lifestyle with her three children
Kourtney also sends free of grans and starchy foods such as rice, pasta and breakfast cereals, as well as fruit. She said the only fruit she allows herself to have & # 39; small portions of berries such as strawberries & # 39; is.
She also avoids beans, legumes, root vegetables such as potatoes and carrots, as well as some herbs and sauces that she says often contain sugar and unhealthy fat. Likewise, it avoids processed vegetable oils and mayonnaise.
Finally, the mother of three revealed that she avoided alcohol on the diet.
& # 39; Due to its carbohydrate content, alcohol can throw you out of ketose, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; Everyone is different, but I noticed that if I had a glass of wine, it would throw me off. If I had a tequila, I was fine. But usually drinking alcohol is not ideal for ketosis, & she added.
And although Kourtney starts the diet to start her summer, she admitted she will probably end the diet after a month.
& # 39; I know that after the month is over, I will probably go back to my normal lifestyle, especially during the summer with my children. It's all about balance, & she said.
