Khloé Kardashian's Nutritionist Reveals Why She Eats 7 Meals a Day

The reality star’s nutritionist, Dr. Philip Goglia, recently opened up about the meal plan he developed to help keep her fit. “We work with each client to determine their metabolic body type,” Goglia, who has also worked with stars like Chris Hemsworth and Brie Larson, told Healthista. “Each requires a unique meal breakdown based on how that person’s body breaks down proteins, fats and carbs.”
For Kardashian, that means dividing her diet into seven meals a day, each filled with either healthy fats, protein, fruits or veggies. She starts her day with a shake made with whey protein power, almond butter, a serving of fruit and ice, followed up with a piece of fruit as a mid-morning snack. Lunch might be 4 oz. of chicken with vegetables and salad that is high in iron, “something like beetroot and spinach,” says Goglia.
Kardashian fights hunger throughout the day with two mid-day snacks made up of one serving of vegetables and one healthy fat. The first might be one cup of celery or one cup of tomatoes with 12 almonds followed by another cup of veggies with one fried egg.
Dinner is similar to lunch except instead of chicken, the Good American founder goes for a “fatty fish” like salmon, sea bass, black cod or artic char—and of course served with more vegetables and salad. When she’s being good, Kardashian will have a piece of fruit for dessert as for seventh meal of the day—but once in a while, she really indulges.
“She has a pattern where she will do seven days on and then have one meal off,” says Goglia. “Her choice of cheat would vary a great deal – maybe she’ll have a slice of cake as dessert or a pizza or pasta dinner, basically whatever she has a craving for.”
