Khloe Kardashian is looking good. She has worked out solo at the gym and worked with a personal trainer as part of her her weight loss regime. Something else the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star credits for aiding in her successful weight loss isn't something she's done. It's something she's given up instead. Khloe has stopped drinking soda--even diet soda.

"I think all diets are kind of weird. The word 'die' is in it," Khloe Kardashian said Monday during an interview with an Australian radio show. "I believe in lifestyle changes, and when you think of something long term, you do it better. If I know I just have to eat this way for a week, how does that help you for the long term? It doesn't."

As everyone who has struggled with weight loss has likely learned, success comes by making a series of lifestyle changes.

"I've made major cutbacks. I used to love soda. So I've cut out soda completely and I'll drink iced tea or water for what I drink throughout my day. I just made that like a lifestyle change," she explained. "I'll do like one thing, like, a month. I'll just cut something off little by little, and then it just becomes like a part of your life. You don't even think about it."

Diet soda not only promotes weight gain, it is very unhealthy because of the aspartame in it. Diet soda tricks the body into thinking it has consumed sugar--hence the tendency for dieters who drink it to actually gain weight.

Khloe Kardashian sings the praises of her personal trainer, too. She works with Gunnar Peterson.

"I'm just obsessed with him. I really am. He has changed my body, but he's not militant. I'm not paying you to yell at me. I want someone who's motivating and encouraging, like if they are proud of you for even being there that day," she said.

"Gunner is, like, really proud and sweet and positive in that way, and also he comes from a place of 'yes.' So if I'm like, 'I want Beyoncé's booty,' he'll say, 'Okay, we're gonna do that.' He's not like, 'Well, you can't because you're a foot taller than her.' He just is very positive," Khloe Kardashian added.

Khloe Kardashian is looking sexy and fit these days. Her weight loss plan has been sensible and healthy.

Giving up soda will no doubt have a twofold benefit for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star. It will likely help her keep off the weight she's already lost.
