Kyle Richards’ Weight Loss Journey
Talking about her hardships, Kyle said, “I really wanted to look and feel my best. I was actually terrified about turning 50 because the number sounded so scary.”
She added, “I’ve always struggled with my weight. I’ve always worked out and dieted my entire life because I have to because I’m not naturally thin. So I’m like, ‘Well, I’ve got to do something different so that when I turn 50 I’m gonna feel really amazing.’”
And with that attitude, she embarked on her weight loss journey. To lose weight, she changed her diet plan completely. Although Kyle made big changes to her diet, her main focus was on her exercise routine. She got help from her personal trainer in this regard.
Kyle’s Diet Plan
Whereas before, Richards used to drink coca cola occasionally, she now gave up consuming everything that had even a little amount of processed sugar in it. Talking about her new diet plan, she said, “I don’t have any bad things in my diet. I eat really well.”
Along with eliminating processed sugar from her diet, Kyle also put up a limit on her alcohol consumption. And with that, she also gave up eating fast food. Instead, she turned to consume more of her handmade foods, which made a very big difference in her transformation.
She also started reading Medical Medium. Kyle said, “I start my day with a glass of celery juice.” And after that, she visits the gym. To lose weight, Kyle started eating more vegetables and fruits and reduced meat in her diet.
All these efforts led to a significant change in her weight. After maintaining her diet plan and working out in the gym, Richards succeeded in losing 30 pounds. This was a very big moment for her.
Kyle’s Workout Plan
Right after the end of lockdown, Kyle started gymming. She would spend two hours daily there except on Sunday. Kyle would do almost every kind of workout. From lifting weights to pull-ups and from running on the treadmill to boxing.
She also practiced a lot of stretching to help her bones and muscles become strong. Besides her workout session, Kyle also meditated on a daily basis. Talking about this, she said, “It helps me in getting in touch with myself. It helps me realize where I am. It helps me in achieving peace of mind.”
Although Richards is now 50 years old, her workout routine and healthy eating habits have kept her ageless. Not only has it helped her in staying ageless, but it has also made her life healthy and fit.

“If there’s anything this quarantine experience should teach us is that who freaking cares about how much weight we put on or off It could be so much worse. Embrace those extra pounds. Besides, you have all the money in the world to take them off in a week.”
Kyle couldn’t help but replied saying, “It takes discipline and hard work to lose weight and get in shape. Not money”. At the end of the day, nobody can argue with Richards on this point.
