We sat down with Khloe Kardashian to talk about her recent with the new diet product QuickTrim, her new show “Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami” and her surprising dream job.
FUSN: There are different QuickTrim products, which one did you choose to lose weight?
KK: Right now I take the Extreme Burn and I’ve been taking it maybe 4-5 weeks. At first I tried the 48 Super Diet Detox. It’s a lemonade based flavored drink which jump started my diet initially. So I’ve done both of those but the Extreme Burn I take every single day and that’s what I’ve been consistent with and that’s what’s been working for me right now.
FUSN: And how much have you lost?
KK: Almost 25 pounds.
FUSN: You look great! Are you done or do you want to lose more?
KK: I’m taking the Extreme Burn still because it’s now helping me tone. It’s not a product you take just to lose weight, it also tones and gives me energy. I take it in the morning before I work out, and it gives me more energy to work out but I don’t feel jittery, I don’t feel like I’ve taken 11 cups of coffee. I gradually increased, I took only in the morning the first week and a half or 2 weeks, and then I started taking 2 in the morning and 2 at night between lunch and dinner because it just maintains me from not overeating. It doesn’t make you not hungry, it’s not a suppressant like that, it just makes you have more portion control. My eyes are bigger than my stomach so if I see food, it all has to go into my mouth, but if I take QuickTrim, it makes me a portion control, which is my biggest problem, I love food. This helps me to not do that. I like the energy I have off it too, but I’m not dependent on it, I’ll take it through the week and sometimes during the weekend I’ll not take it.
FUSN: Have you tried other diets?
KK: I’ve had food delivered to my house. I’ve tried Slim Fast, I’ve tried other diet pills and I have felt jittery off other diet pills and I felt like my mouth was always dry. With this, I don’t feel that way, and with this I can take on an empty stomach too, whereas with a lot of things you can’t, but everybody’s body reacts differently to caffeine and this does have caffeine in it, so I would start by taking one pill then gradually ease up, but I never lost 25 pounds before off any diet system and I still work out. I’ve always worked out, and the only difference I’m doing is taking QuickTrim, and it’s working for me. You can see the difference in my body.
FUSN: You know what, I saw you last year at the Viceroy Hotel at an event you and your sisters were hosting and you looked great. I just didn’t think that you needed to lose weight.
KK: I’m tall and 5’10” so I can hold weight more than a petite person but I was also good at hiding my weight. I wore a little babydoll dress and it hid my stomach and that’s where I hold my weight. I’m 25, and now I can dress like the way a 25-year-old should. It’s not like I was dressing old but I was always so cautious like I gotta hide my arms or gotta hide this. When people are like “you lost weight, you look amazing,” I feel amazing. I’ve never been like I have to weigh myself, I have to be like I don’t know 120 pounds. I don’t know what my weight is suppose to be, I just know how I feel and I like working out, I like seeing muscle definition.
FUSN: What’s your workout regimen, because obviously you can’t just rely on the pills?
KK: I get really bored working out, so I constantly have to do something different. I like to work out in the mornings, otherwise I’ll get lazy and not do it later. One day I’ll do an hour of cardio, then I’ll switch it up, and do an hour of weights. I never do the same thing twice because I get really bored. Boxing is my favorite workout, and I go on hikes with my little sisters at least three times a week because it’s really fun and you don’t realize that you’re working out and then it builds your leg muscles because you’re hiking up all these trails. I’m blessed to be around mountains like that, so I can.
FUSN: How did you get involved with QuickTrim?
KK: My mom introduced me to the product. Her friends brought it to her and I’ve always complained about my weight and my mom said why don’t you just try this. She knows I’ve tried everything; she use to bring me other products before. It did so well for me that Kim tried it. She just wanted to lose a couple of pounds and she had different body issues than me that she wanted to overcome and see results in. She and I have two different body types and it worked for both of us and Kimberly is so happy with her results.
FUSN: Do you know how much weight Kim lost?
KK: I think eight pounds but I’m not sure. I know she got rid of her cellulite—there’s a cellulite cream, which I want to try. Kim looks amazing. I know she’s more comfortable and more toned. I know it got rid of the last little bit that she wanted to get rid of. The thing that’s cool is that we were both so happy with it, that we wanted to endorse it and talk about it. It just so happened naturally, we were just telling all of our friends about it, that I guess by word of mouth they started hearing about how much we were talking about it and how much we were promoting it that they signed us up.
FUSN: Didn’t you just have another medical scare?
KK: I have a history of skin cancer so I get my moles removed all the time and I had another one removed.
FUSN: Don’t you wear sunscreen?
KK: I do but I never lay out. I’ve had skin cancer three different times but I get moles removed three times a year, maybe. If I’m out of the country or on vacation, I’ll lay out, but in L.A., I never lay out. I’m much more paler than my sisters, I’m just prone to it, I guess. TMZ kind of blew it out of proportion. They just caught me leaving the medical building. I was frustrated because I had to do it at 6:30 in the morning, it’s personal to me. It’s a real medical thing, it’s not like I’m getting botox. I just thought they were insensitive, this is my body and I don’t want people knowing my business… what’re you going to do?
FUSN: Your show “Kourtney & Khloe Take Miami” just debuted and earned the biggest ratings in seven years on E!, obviously you’re in L.A. right now, so you’re not filming. Are you going to have a second season?
KK: We don’t know. It depends if it gets picked up, I’m sure it will. We would love to. Filming in Miami was probably one of the most fun times ever. I think because it was all so new to us and in L.A. there are so many more restrictions on where you can film and what you can do. In Miami, you can let loose. You can film on the beach, there’s so much more to do.
FUSN: Is Scott going to be part of the show now that Kourtney is pregnant?
KK: I have no idea. I mean that’s up to Kourt, but I really don’t know, but I’m sure.
FUSN: Are you still going to keep filming “Keeping Up With the Kardashians?”
KK: Yeah, we start filming season four on September 15th, so I’m excited about that. And we’re definitely still going to be on it, we’re definitely always intending to do both shows. They’re just totally different shows in my opinion. One’s very young and kind of crazy. And the other one’s still crazy and fun but it’s more family based.
FUSN: So what are you doing on your time off from filming the shows?
KK: I haven’t really had much time off because we’ve been promoting so much. I’m still working, doing a lot of press. We’re moving our Calabasas clothing store to L.A. in the Melrose Place area in the next month. We’ll probably be done with that in the next two months, so that’s where our focus is right now. I had a radio show, so I’m talking about doing a couple of more shows out here while the season is still on.
FUSN: What is your radio show about?
KK: It’s called “Khloe After Dark.” It’s from 12-4am. It’s more like I’m a female Howard Stern, it’s very honest and open. I like to have celebrity guests on there that have normal issues that regular people do so they can call in and talk about it.
FUSN: Have you always been into radio? How did this come about?
KK: Well, I’ve always wanted to do radio, this was my first time ever doing it. I want to be a talk show host one day, so I always figured radio was a natural progression and it would warm me up to be comfortable interviewing people. It’s still doing it live and interacting but it’s not on tv, it’s kind of a delay. This is my first time trying it. Ryan Seacrest and Clear Channel gave me the opportunity, and it was a six week trial run, but it’s doing really well and because of the show, there was a demand for it, so I might get to do a couple more shows and hopefully it will be syndicated. It was only one day a week but that’s all I can really do right now. It’s the craziest hours, but I’m different in how I talk, I curse and I say crazy things so I kind of need those hours but I was so appreciative to even have that opportunity.
QuickTrim is available at GNC stores and online.
