Kim Kardashian food philosophy ‘Non-faddy! I couldn’t be bothered to count macros, cut out food groups or eat clean (whatever that’s meant to mean!), because I love food too much. I’m a firm believer in only eating when you’re hungry and stopping when you’re full. Eating well has got so complicated, but it’s really very simple. Chuck plenty of veggies, some wholegrain carbs and lean proteins on your plate, limit your sugar and booze intake, and try to eat food in its most natural state. One of my must-have ingredients is extra-virgin olive oil. I believe it’s one of the healthiest foods you can eat on a daily basis.

Kim Kardashian family is from the Mediterranean and they’re all still hopping around at a ripe old age!’ Eating on the go ‘For me, this often means fitting in food when I’m stressed or super-busy. I always have dried fruit, nuts and seeds on hand. I’m also a dab hand at rustling something up out of canned food! Tuna and mixed beans with cucumber, fresh herbs, lemon juice and olive oil takes less than five minutes to chuck in a container.

‘Focus on eating the best you can most of the time and work out how to fit eating well into your lifestyle. Learn to understand your hunger and satiety by eating mindfully. Once you get a grip on this, you can let go of the “good” and “bad” mindsets, rid yourself of guilt and develop a more consistent approach to eating that will serve you well in the long run.’
Kim Kardashian’s daily diet
Breakfast ‘I never feel like eating when I get up, so it’s coffee to start with. Later on, I’ll have something egg-based, teamed with good-quality wholegrain bread or avocado, spring onions and tomatoes.’ Lunch ‘I work from home, so it’s normally what’s in the fridge. I tend to follow the same equation: veggies, protein, healthy fats and a little wholegrain carbs.
It needs to be quick, so it may be lean cooked meats or pulses with sliced veggies, olive oil and wholegrain bread. I also like to make extra the night before so there’s something for lunch. Nothing beats the flavour of a re-heated curry wrapped in a wholemeal chapatti with a big dollop of yoghurt!’ Dinner ‘Protein and veg – I love fresh fish (salmon, tuna), or I might use something vegetarian such as tofu or Quorn with stir-fried veggies. I’m a huge fan of Asian flavours, so I normally include lime, soy, ginger, garlic and sesame.
The flip-side is a husband to consider who doesn’t like this kind of food! The compromise is usually something from M&S that can be chucked in the oven, but I always try to team it with a mound of healthy salad or veggies!’ Drinks and snacks ‘Just water, black coffee and a few glasses of good white wine.
I don’t snack on a daily basis but I’m partial to the odd handful of Haribos if they’re on offer! Houmous also goes down a treat.’ good to get into the habit of keeping the fridge and cupboard stocked up with a few key essentials, such as something to whip up a healthy smoothie in the morning (oats, fruit and yoghurt). I’m guilty of skipping meals when I’m busy and stressed, so I always have a good supplement on hand, such as Healthspan MultiVitality Gold (£10.95 for 180 tablets; healthspan.co.uk), to help keep up my nutrient intake.
