Kendall Jenner stays supermodel skinny with a low carb Paleo style diet featuring high-quality proteins, vegetables, fruit and 12 cups of detox green tea a day. For exercise, the willowy 5-foot-10 Kendall prefers cardio workouts, typically running.
“I usually start my day off with a cup of detox tea,” Jenner told E! “I have 12 cups a day.” For snacks, Kendall, 18, eats Paleo-approved low-sugar fruits like apples and strawberries and avoids processed junk food.
Jenner said her beauty secret, in addition to the Paleo diet and regular exercise, is getting plenty of sleep. “My beauty secret for Fashion Week is just getting a good amount of sleep,” she said. “I feel like I need at least seven, eight hours of sleep to function.”
LeBron James Is Latest Celeb to Go Paleo
Kendall’s sister Kim Kardashian lost 56 pounds on a low carb, high-fat ketogenic-style Atkins diet that limited her daily carb intake to less than 60 grams. Kendall doesn’t follow a ketogenic diet because she doesn’t need to lose weight, but sticks to a Paleo inspired diet that limits carbs and processed foods.
Other celebrities who follow the Paleo diet include Megan Fox, who lost all her baby weight in record time with the low-carb eating plan and Tim McGraw, who credits the Paleo diet and CrossFit for his jaw-dropping 40-pound weight loss.
LeBron James got in the best shape of his life after following the Paleo diet for 67 days. “I had no sugar, no dairy, no carbs,” said LeBron. “All I ate was meat, fish, veggies and fruit. That’s it. For 67 straight days.”
The 6-foot-8 James, who recently lost 25 pounds, said his weight loss has made him quicker on his feet and more dangerous on the court.
Kendall’s modeling career has really taken off lately, but the lanky teen was fat-shamed recently after being called “too fat” for the runway by Australia’s Famous magazine. The absurd cover line read: “You’re too fat for runway. Devastated Kendall ordered to lose 8 kg.”
The cover even included what appeared to be a Photoshopped image of Jenner with cellulite on her back of her buttocks and legs.
Kendall’s friend, fellow model Ireland Baldwin (the daughter of Kim Basinger and Alec Baldwin), defended Jenner on Twitter, writing, ” ‘Famous’ decided to Photoshop some cottage cheese on the back of [Kendall’s] thighs. Let me tell you. That girl has flawless legs. I’ve seen them in person plenty of times.”
Kendall’s entire family has generated countless headlines for the past few months. Her younger sister, Kylie Jenner, made news after six plastic surgeons told Hollywood Life Kylie got lip injections and other plastic surgery. Sources claim Kylie, 17, underwent the cosmetic procedures to look more like the stunning Kendall.
Kendall’s parents, Bruce and Kris Jenner, filed for divorce on Sept. 22 following months of speculation that Bruce is allegedly seeking a sex change operation to become a woman. The Jenners, who had been married for 23 years, have already settled their divorce amicably, agreeing to split their $60 million in joint assets equitably.
