"I lost 5 to 7 [pounds] last week. I'm trying to lose 40," he revealed. "It's a little journey, but it's good. . . I'm like 240 right now, probably 235." Kardashian added that he hopes to reach his goal weight by July 4.
The sock designer said he packed on the pounds by eating "a lot of great food," and now the single star is adhering to a low-carb diet. His slimdown motivation? "Beautiful women!" Kardashian admitted.
Kardashian isn't in this alone, as he's recruited friends to join him during his twice-daily workouts. "We go to do Runyon Canyon in L.A.," he explained. "I'll [exercise with] my own trainer at eight in the morning before all that."
Dancing With the Stars pro Cheryl Burke, who was partnered with Kardashian during the ABC show's thirteenth season in 2011, has also lent her support. "We've started running and doing our own little workout," Kardashian told Us. "It's good."
