Regardless of her diet, it's imperative we all remember that Kendall Jenner is naturally thin. Yes, she works out. Of course, she eats brown rice and grilled chicken before fashion week. But regardless, she's able to "cheat" (anyone else find that word cringe-worthy?—let women live) and eat pasta, pizza, and fried chicken because her fast metabolism allows for those foods not to immediately show up on her long, lean body.
She deserves credit for looking great and working out hard, but don't beat yourself up if the below information is infuriating to you. Because by no means are we suggesting changing your diet to mirror hers will yield the same body type. We're all different—and that's a good thing. It's why we practice positive affirmations, research food that helps curb anxiety, indulge when we want to, ignore outdated diet tips, and even choose not to weigh ourselves. Even so, it's interesting to hear what she chooses to put into her body.
So here it is: We rounded up a few sound bites and quotes of Kendall Jenner dishing on her favorite foods and how she stays satiated throughout the day.
And says drinking a lot of water is her beauty secret. "I have low blood sugar, so I definitely need things to keep me going (aka lots of food!)," Jenner writes on her app. "Here's what will forever and always make my list: Twix, Justin's Peanut Butter, chips and guac, and hummus and carrots. See, pretty simple—just feed me and I'm ready to go!"
"I hate cardio," she told us with a laugh. "I'd rather just stand there and lift some weights than run in place." She paused for a moment. "But I'll do it!" Jenner discussed how she mostly favors exercises that work out her abs and her butt, like squats and planks. When she's being healthy, Jenner eats a lot of grilled chicken with rice. "But I love everything unhealthy," she said. "Pizza, fried chicken—everything."
She tells Harper's Bazaar, "I typically eat lean chicken and brown rice, and am always snacking on raw veggies with dip and hummus. I wish I had more time to do grocery shopping because I like picking out my own vegetables."
"I don't cook that much besides my standard eggs, avocado, and toast breakfast, but when I do, I have a few super-simple recipes that I consider my 'specialties,'" Jenner wrote on her app. She says she could eat fettuccine with peas for every meal because she usually has all the ingredients on hand (they include garlic, peas, grated Parmesan, and pasta).
If she's eating out, Jenner loves "Nobu for sushi or Craig's, where I order the vegan spaghetti Bolognese or Margherita pizza. I always make sure to have one or two nights a week out with friends, where I'll get dressed up for dinner and be social."
