Here’s Why Kourtney Kardashian’s Diet Is Being Slammed By Nutritionists
Kourtney shared her daily diet in a recent blog post on her website.
A quick scroll through Kourtney Kardashian’s Instagram reveals that she’s been living a seriously fit life as of late.
Along with regular snaps from the gym with her sisters Kim and Khloe and loadsa yummy #fitfood, she’s also been sporting a seriously svelte frame, choosing to showcase her new abs in a range of mid-riff-skimming tops.
Giving us a glimpse into the lifestyle that’s sculpted her new body, Kourtney wrote a blog post on what she eats on the daily, but nutritionists agree that her diet isn’t as saintly as it seems.
First up in Kourtney’s routine is ghee (mind out of the gutter you lot). She downs a cup of the clarified butter first thing, before following up with a post-workout avocado pudding, which she rustles up with half an avo, coconut and honey.

“I need to start including more protein after my workout,” she explains. “But I’ll sometimes have hard-boiled eggs or my signature salad for lunch.”
But while her morning routine all sounds pretty saintly to use, nutritionists disagree.
Writing in a piece for Shape, registered dietician Carissa Bealert points out that carbs are seriously lacking in Kourtney’s post-workout diet.
“The glucose from carbohydrates can help fuel your brain and your muscles for a workout. If you are very carb-weary, the time to not cut carbs is breakfast and post-workout,” Carissa explains.
Thankfully, Carissa knows the perfect mix of nutrients to give your body after a tough session at the gym. Speaking of Kourtney’s diet she explains, “I’d love to see her eat something with more volume and protein and carbohydrates,”
Both pre- and post-workout, she adds that the focus should be on getting a balance of all three macronutrients – that’s protein, carbs and fat FYI.
