In the no holds barred interview, Khloe revealed how she chose working out over therapy (and how it actually worked).
"When Lamar and I broke up [in 2013], I had all these emotions that I didn't know what to do with. Some people suggested therapy, but instead I joined my local Equinox gym, where I'd get on an elliptical and watch bad reality TV," she explained.
"As a result, I started losing weight. Once I realised I could shed some pounds that way, I began working out regularly with my trainer, Gunnar Peterson, and I made a commitment to get healthy. He taught me that the trick to staying motivated is to find what you really love to do. We did cardio, calisthenics, circuit training, Pilates, and boxing.
"The gym takes all the anxiety away when I'm overwhelmed or stressed out... This morning, I couldn't go to the gym, so I did 30 minutes on the treadmill, and now I feel so happy. It clears my mind of all the crap and puts me in a really good mood."
She revealed another sure fire way of turning up the intensity when you work out: looking amazing (something you know Khloe's got on lock if you've ever seen her fitness closet).
"When I buy a cute outfit, I'm super excited to go to the gym the next day. And when I look good at the gym, I'm inspired to do an extra squat or an extra lunge," she explained.
"Just because you're going to work out, you don't have to look like a slob. I also always wear hoop earrings; they're like my security blanket. People laugh at me, but why not? They make me feel more dressed up. I also wear makeup when I work out. I put on a tinted moisturiser, mascara, and cherry lip balm, and fill in my eyebrows. If I feel cuter with a little lip colour and mascara, why should anybody else care?"
