Since being catapulted into the spotlight in 2007 thanks to the family’s reality show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Khloe has slimmed down significantly.
The TV personality revealed her fitness journey commenced when she split from her ex-husband, former basketball player Lamar Odom, 38, in 2013 after four years of marriage.
The pair tied the knot in 2009 after a whirlwind four-week romance, and finalized their divorce in December 2016, seven months after Khloe had filed.
Speaking in a Revenge Body season two teaser, she explained: ‘My whole fitness transformation stemmed from my divorce. I really needed an outlet for my emotions.
‘I started working out and the clarity that I received from that was so needed and so therapeutic, and as I by-product I started losing weight. I saw a bit of definition there and thought, “OK, I’ll try and keep this up”.

‘I’m an emotional eater and in the past if something bad happened to me I’d be like, “Bring on the chicken fingers and ranch and a pint of Häagen-Dazs”. That was my whole thing.’
The couple briefly called off their divorce in October 2015 following Lamar’s near-fatal drink and drugs overdose at a brothel in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The reality star later filed again in May 2016, and the divorce was finalized in December 2016, propelling Khloe to get in the ‘best shape of my life’.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians favorite also shared her health and fitness tips, revealing she flushes out her body with plenty of water and likes to ‘box and jump rope’ in the gym.

The mother-to-be also explained working out with sisters Kourtney and Kim helps motivate her, even though Kim has a very ‘different workout energy’ to Khloe and ‘bad-ass’ Kourtney
Khloe said: ‘What motivates me to stay in shape is that I’m so competitive. Me and my sisters, we work out together.
‘We obviously have totally different bodies so we never try to compare ourselves to each other, but it’s just a fun, group thing.
‘I love my sister Kim, but her and I have different workout energy. Kimberly just doesn’t sweat no matter what, like even when she’s working out.
‘Kourtney’s bad-ass in the gym. Having someone that’s on your same level of working out is good, we’re like animals – it’s nuts.
