Kim Kardashian started a new exercise routine along with a ‘really crazy diet’ in a bid to get a ‘rock-hard body’ on Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The 37-year-old mother-of-two took decisive action after admitting to her horror at seeing unflattering photos of her in a bikini on the beach.
While most of the rest of her family traveled to Cleveland to meet the family of Khloe’s NBA star boyfriend Tristan Thompson, Kim was instead in New York to start working with a bodybuilder she follows on Instagram.
Kim — who also had a heart-to-heart with Scott Disick over his wild behavior in Cannes — admitted to mom Kris Jenner that she was planning ‘to start a really crazy diet.’
She then told her that Melissa Alcantara’s Instagram photos showing her amazing transformation from her weight gain after having children to her lithe bodybuilder’s physique were ‘super inspiring to me.’

‘I’ve gotta have this lifestyle — I’ve gotta try,’ Kim declared.
Khloe also managed to make it to the initial meeting with Melissa who joked that ‘I may kill you’ with her intense workouts.
Kim insisted she was ‘super motivated’ and ‘super wanting to go full-in’ — but not before the sisters both said they needed a ‘last supper,’ with Khloe saying: ‘We’ve got to have a slice of pizza to say goodbye. It’s our goodbye day.’

Totally committed: Kim insisted that he was committed to a new lifestyle
‘OK,’ said Melissa who looked clearly dubious about their commitment.
The sisters were shown joining family friend and self-confessed food fanatic Jonathan Cheban as they went to two pizza restaurants and then got ice cream cones with sprinkles.
‘It’s going to be really hard, my new lifestyle,’ Kim admitted.

Jonathan teased her about her strict new diet.
‘I’ve heard about lifestyle changes before … I’ll see you at Cipiani’s,’ he joked of the upscale New York restaurants. ‘She can’t resist that pasta.’
But Kim insisted she would be ‘committed’ and ‘dedicated’ — and was then shown being put through a grueling workout with weights by Melissa who proved to be a stern taskmaster.

Kim told her new trainer, who like her wore tight workout pants and a crop top: ‘I know I could get abs — I’ve never been pushed to get them, but I know I could.’
Melissa also shocked the reality star by going through her home pantry and insisting she throw out most of the food she seemed to most favor, insisting she needed to instead stick to fresh, natural foods.
But Kim said one of her biggest challenges was hanging out with Jonathan who is such a big foodie he was seen getting ‘Food God’ tattooed onto his forearm.

He even repeatedly called her trying to interrupt her workout with Melissa to instead get her to join him at a restaurant, with Kim admitting: ‘I’ve been ditching him because Melissa has me on a crazy strict diet.
‘I have to just avoid him. It’s not like he wants to come chill — he just wants to go eat,’ Kim said.
Jonathan seemed to delight in testing Kim.
