As one of the most stylish and sexiest women in the world, it's no surprise that Kim Kardashian has a particular diet and a regular exercise regime. In fact, her personal trainer, Melissa Alcantara, said the 40-year-old reality star "inspires" those around her with her dedication to staying fit and fab.
"I have been working with her for three years, and I am amazed at all of the things that she juggles on a daily basis, and she makes sure that she is there at 6 a.m. I mean, it’s impressive! She is an impressive woman," Alcantara exclusively told OK!.
However, the brunette beauty does indulge once in a while. So much so, Kardashian is a fan of Taco Bell, In-N-Out Burger, McDonald's and more.

She may be a busy mom of four, but Kardashian rarely skips workouts. "She's super responsible, she never cancels," Alcantara has said. "She's like, 'I have to work out, this is part of my life.'"
A hearty breakfast gives Kardashian the fuel she needs for the day ahead. Scrambled eggs with tomatoes, onions and mushrooms are one of her go-to's, as well as açai bowl with mango, strawberries, banana, blueberries and chia seeds.
The makeup mogul got into the best shape of her life lifting heavy weights during 90-minute sessions with Alcantara six days a week. She limits cardio to short bursts of HIIT training or longer, low-intensity walks.
The SKIMS founder stays away from processed foods. "If it comes out of a box, it's not going to be good for you," said Alcantara, who works with Kardashian's team of chefs to ensure that the star's eating a balanced amount of proteins, carbs and fats as well as plenty of vegetables. Adds Alcantara, "I want Kardashian to eat real food that's cooked every day."
PUT PEN TO PAPER
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians starlet stays motivated by writing down her fitness goals. "I've found that helps hold you accountable," Alcantara explained. "And, it feels amazing when you do finally reach your goal!"
In February, Kardashian told fans on Twitter she's been sticking to a "mostly plant-based" meal plan and she often posts photos of yummy dishes like vegan tacos (her fave!), Beyond burgers and artichoke dip.
GIVE IN TO CRAVINGS
The KKW Beauty mogul doesn't deny herself sweet treats here and there. "I love candy. I love cookies … I just try to control myself," she said. Her biggest indulgence? "Häagen-Dazs ice cream — their Dulce de Leche flavor is my favorite thing in life."
Kardashian spends one entire workout on just her core, doing lying leg raises, plank holds, reverse V-ups, bicycle crunches and crunches with a resistance band attached to a bar. (That explains those incredible abs!) Other days are dedicated to her shoulders, biceps/triceps, chest/back and legs.
SCHEDULE IT IN
Another key to her success: getting exercise out of the way first thing in the morning. "Her schedule is crazy, and mine is also crazy," said Alcantara. "So we work out really early in the morning at 6 a.m."
Rest days are crucial for the reality star. Kardashian and her trainer focus on her legs and famous booty just twice a week, so the muscles have time to recover. "You have to rest," said Kardashian," or it isn't going to work!"
