“People will always say, ‘She’s so big.’ And I will say, ‘Oh, she’s so tall.’ I try to make them more descriptive. I know what an adult means when they say that, but I do not want her to misinterpret it. ”
Khloé Kardashian has opened up about how she handles the subject of body image while raising her three-year-old daughter, True.
In a new interview with Health magazine, Khloé discussed her approach to instilling body positivity in True, while at the same time touching on her own relationship to body image and food.
When asked about her approach to staying fit, Khloé – who has previously been vocal about the “intolerable” control she had faced for years over her body – said she works to practice “healthy habits on a daily basis” . “
“I have to think of it as a lifestyle rather than thinking, ‘I want to try this diet or something else someone was talking about,'” Khloé said. “I’m so over that stage in my life. It’s a cliché, but it’s about mind, body and soul. If I am not mentally strong, I feel physically that I do not know what I want. So it’s really not about the physical appearance. ”
That Keeps up with the Kardashians star went on to talk about navigating Instagram – which she described as both a “gift” and a “curse” – and how she handles receiving negative comments about her body on the platform.
“There have been so many days, I feel like I feel so bad and good. And then my behavior will be shot down because someone posted a story about how they perceive me or how they think I look, ”she opened.
“It’s so weird because we know the truth about ourselves,” she continued. “So why let what someone says affect you? But it does. It did not when I was younger. Usually you turn into titanium when you are older. Sometimes I let those things come to me and I have to actively drown out that noise. ”
When she talked about her previous relationship with food, Khloé opened up about how she was an “emotional eater” and revealed that she “almost wanted to punish” herself for bingeing when she was younger.
“I’ve actually always had a really unhealthy relationship with food,” she said. “When I was younger and sad, I ate – I was an emotional eater. And then I hated the way I felt after it. I almost punished myself for bingeing or having a bag of chips – it was just so much thought. ”
“I had tried every diet under the sun,” she continued. “Do you remember when Beyoncé made that lemon juice and cayenne pepper thing? I was like, ‘Sign up!’ That’s why I yelled all my life — I was always chasing some fashion. ”
“When it comes to food – I had so many problems,” she said. “It was not from someone I just think it was from society or how people criticized my body.”
“When I started exercising, I decided to make some lifestyle changes,” she added. “So I want, for example. Say that this week I just have to do one thing – I just have to cut out sugar. Then maybe I would try to do it for a month. After that, I would try to incorporate another healthy change. ”
Khloé then talked about how she is conscious of cherishing True in light of her own long-standing struggle with body image.
“I don’t play when it comes to True,” Khloé said. “She is very tall. People will always say, ‘She’s so big.’ And I will say, ‘Oh, she’s so tall.’ I try to make them more descriptive. I know what an adult means when they say that, but I do not want her to misinterpret it. ”
“I’ve noticed she’s really tough, which’s a big thing,” she said. “And if that’s who she is, I’m not trying to make her not be like that … I’m always trying to tell her it’s okay if she’s crying or if something’s wrong.
Khloé’s comments come just months after she discussed the other conscious parenting choices she has made, including her decision to educate True about race while “still educating” [herself] at the same time.”
“I will [True] to be exposed to as much inclusion but variation as possible, ”Khloé explained in a guest appearance on the role model podcast. “I do not want her to live in a bubble, because we have a very privileged life, and I want her to know all kinds of life and all kinds of life and be very aware of it.”
“I know some people find it uncomfortable to talk to their children about race,” she continued. “Or they think, ‘Oh, we live in a bubble. We never have to talk about my child being black. ‘I mean, of course you do! You only create them, I think, for failure if you do not talk about race and probably the things they are going to endure when they are in quote the ‘real world’. ”
“Even if you live in a bubble, no matter who you are, I think it can be really shocking when your children are set free, then they will either be destroyed, hurt, traumatized, confused, overwhelmed,” she added. .
And Khloé also said that she and some of her sisters are able to have conversations about navigating the race together as they are in a similar situation with their own children.
“The great thing about having some of my sisters in the same situation is that we’ll probably have these conversations together,” she said.
Khloe’s remarks about race seemed to mark a shift in her view of the subject, as she received intense backlash about three years earlier, saying she “does not see color” in response to racist comments directed at True on Instagram.
Khloé addressed the racist comments at the time and shared one thread of tweets explains how she would like to educate others by sharing her point of view – which many fans initially praised her for.
After Khloé continued to tweet that they “do not see color” in her household, she received harsh criticism for her “ignorant” mindset as well as advice from fans on how to productively navigate the race topic.
“” We do not see color “is harmful,” tweeted one person on Khloé. “The world sees color, what needs to change are the racist ideas that lighter is better. [True] need to grow up knowing that she is a strong, beautiful, colored woman. ”
“If you can’t see color, you can’t see your child,” tweeted another. “The fact is that so much of who she is and remains is wrapped up in her skin color. The world will treat her differently because of it and you have a duty to prepare her for [it]. ”
However, Khloé’s approach seemed to change last summer after she posted on Instagram a statement about how she could no longer “sit still” on issues of racial injustice. Her statement came days after the first resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement.
“It breaks my heart to think that parents must teach their children to stay alive. “No mother should live in fear like that, and when I think of my own daughter, my future children and all our children, I know that we must create a better future for them,” Khloé wrote in her statement.
“I promise to continue to teach my daughter every single day, and with every opportunity I get, to have love for others, regardless of the color of their skin, their sexuality, or their religious beliefs.”
