Kourtney Kardashian maintains around 100 lbs: ‘she wants to be healthy not underweight’

While I haven’t weighed 100 pounds since I hit double digit ages, I would like to point out that Kourtney Kardashian is quite short. She’s just 5 feet tall, so 100 pounds puts her at a BMI of 19.5 which is not underweight. At her height she wouldn’t be underweight unless she lost about six pounds. So she’s thin but not worryingly so and she doesn’t look sickly or anything. Still, it’s kind of shocking to hear someone say that they try to keep their weight at a hundred pounds. Kourtney made this admission through a source quoted on People. Apparently she was eating on KUWTK and people trolled her for it. She responded because it’s her job to respond to trolls. Then someone told People that she tries to maintain at a hundred pounds which isn’t underweight.

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star, 39, spoke out on Twitter after getting criticism and jokes about eating throughout Sunday’s episode.

“I swear I just read 100 comments about me eating on tonight’s episode and some of you are very offended. Let me live,” Kardashian tweeted, along with a laughing face and several food emojis.

The 5’0″ mom of three is known to try out trendy diets, like keto and intermittent fasting, and stays committed to her workouts. A source tells PEOPLE that she works to keep her weight consistent.

“She works out and eats in order to try to stay around 100 lbs.,” the source says, adding that Kardashian doesn’t want to get too skinny. “Yes, she eats very healthy but she wants her body to be healthy and not underweight or malnourished.”

Kardashian also has to focus on keeping her weight up, because “her body type is very different from her sisters’,” the source says. Kim and Khloé have long documented their efforts to lose weight…

Kardashian tries to eat organic foods as much as possible, and limits her sugar intake.

“I always try to avoid sugar — especially refined sugar — for so many reasons,” she previously said on her app. “First, sugar is addictive and I notice that after I eat it, I need it. Sugar doesn’t sustain you when you actually need energy, like for a workout. Also, when I eat sugar, I find that more cellulite appears.”

But, like everyone, Kardashian gives herself a break from time to time.

“When I’m traveling (and sometimes on the weekend), I’ll cheat—I’m a little more lenient now than I was when I first started this whole thing,” she said. “But when I’m home and in my day-to-day routine, I try to exercise five to six times a week and eat healthy every day.”

[From People]

As I mentioned, technically that’s not underweight. We shouldn’t concern troll people for being any weight though. Plus, it’s also her job to be hot and post revealing photos. Also to date young guys. She’s really quite boring but she’s filling that role of the hot boring sister. She has relationships on her own terms and has less drama in that department relative to her sisters. She dealt with Scott’s drunken mess for years and then she dated dudes who wouldn’t challenge or cheat on her. When the last one did cheat on her she dumped him and switched him out for a younger model. Also, she tells no lies about sugar being an evil cycle *eats another Hershey’s kiss* Protip: put chocolate and candy in the freezer. It slows you down somewhat, but not totally. At least it’s an effort to eat the whole bag.

    I don’t care what weight she is but why lie about it? I don’t believe she’s 100lbs

    • chrissyms says:

      how much do you think she weighs? I would totally have guessed around 100.

      • Tanesha86 says:

        I’m the same height and physique, naturally thin and usually weigh around 115-120. If I had to guess I’d say she’s a little more than 100 lbs.

      • ttu says:

        Yep, she’s super short. I think she might be even shorter than she claims to be. They’re a family of liars but 100 or around is perfectly plausible.

    • Veronica S. says:

      She’s only five foot, so that seems entirely possible how toned she is. My friend’s 4’11” with smaller hips/breasts and comes in around 90lbs at her thinnest. I imagine Kourney occasionally fluctuates up like all of us do, but I can read 100 lbs as her “base” weight.

    • Missy says:

      I’m the same height as kourtney, I was never more than about 97 pounds until I got pregnant. My hips got a lot bigger and stayed bigger even though I lost most of the baby weight. I’m at a steady 110 -115 now. I don’t think she’s lying

      • ChillyWilly says:

        Yeah I am 5’1″ and 1 /2 (yes, that half inch matters! Lol) and weighed 105 at my thinnest and was about Kourtney’s size. Sigh…Those were the days.
        Anyway, I think she looks great and not underweight at all.

    • OldBeeyutch says:

      Courtney &all her sisters can claim to have an healthy BMI, but the obsession to stay on that marketable edge isn’t healthy.

    • Goldie says:

      I agree Tanesha. I’m 5’1″ and used to weigh 100 pounds. Kortney looks a little bit bigger than that to me. My guess would have been around 110. But everyone carries their weight differently, so who knows? She looks great, regardless.

      • shocked and appalled says:

        Goldie, the camera makes people look noticeably heavier. When I started working in the film industry I was utterly shocked by how much thinner the performers were in real life than on camera. The expression is that the camera puts on 10-15 lbs.

    • aang says:

      My kid is 5’1 and 100 lbs. She looks a bit thinner, but not much than Kourtney. I believe her.

      • Im125lbsnowandhealthy says:

        She’s totally 100 lbs. I’m 5’8” and was 112 lbs when I was modeling (teens through my late 20s) and I was yes too thin for my height… but I’m a full 8” taller and was at 112 and wasn’t sickly looking. . If she were 110 lbs here like people are saying…. yeah no. She’s totally 100 people.

    • shocked and appalled says:

      Tanesha when I worked in the film industry I learned that the camera makes people look noticeably heavier than they are in real life.

      This is well known in the film/tv and modelling industries. It’s especially a problem in tv/film because the subjects are moving around and can’t be constantly posed in ways that help them look their real size or thinner because they are in motion. Also lighting and the ways our eyes work are factors. Even experts who say that it isn’t always true, acknowledge it can be true at times.


      • Tanesha86 says:

        That’s all well and good but I still don’t believe her or Kim or Khloe for that matter. She looks good but I still think she’s fudging the number a bit and it’s silly. It’s like they push these numbers because they think the numbers sound good instead of just being honest. Kim with her 24″ waist, Khloe with her 33lb weight loss in 3 months and Kourtney with her 100lb base weight it’s all BS to me 🤷🏾‍♀️

    • sommolierlady says:

      I believe she’s around 100 lbs. I’m 4’11 and maintained between 98- 103 until I hit my 50’s. Now I’m good with a few more lbs, around 107. She looks about the same as I did and I never looked underweight. According to my doctor, I was right about where I was (and am) supposed to be.

    • StormsMama says:

      She’s tiny.
      I saw her when she met a friend
      They took a picture together and when she was standing with my extremely thin friend it was very apparent that she is even more tiny than she seems. That’s just fact.

      Also DONT DO THAT THING where you act like you don’t care about her weight then say you know she’s lying. You don’t know and you do care.

      • Tanesha86 says:

        @Stormsmama I honestly don’t care how much the woman weighs, she doesn’t come home to me and she doesn’t pay my bills. I still think she’s lying like they all do about trivial things and it’s silly. I don’t see why you’re so bothered by my opinion that you felt the need to try to call me out. You believe her, I don’t agree to disagree and move on. It’s not that deep 😂

      • Fleur says:

        Yes! True story: I had a friend once who met Khloe Kardashian. This was circa 2009 ish, so the Kardashians were famous enough for People magazine and such, but not the insanely famous level they are now. I think they met at DASH, and my friend was a fan, though I legitimately had no idea who Khloe was at the time. Anyway, she got a picture with Khloe. My friend was a small girl with a petite, cheerleader’s body, and though Khloe was taller, Khloe was the EXACT same hip-weight-ratio as my tiny little cheerleader friend. I saw the physical proof. These women are skinny.

        Anyway, I know it’s not about Kourtney, but the point is that TV and the paparazzi camera distorts how big they look.

    • jwoolman says:

      I’m almost 4 inches taller, and my natural setpoint is 110 lbs. So 100 lbs on Kourtney is certainly possible. Don’t know why people are doubting it.

      She looks very good, whatever she is doing is right for her. She’s not undereating. I think when she said she tries to maintain 100 lbs she was also talking about not going under that. But I doubt she has to worry, her natural setpoint is likely 100 lbs and her appetite will make the adjustments up and down. At least that’s how it was for me when I was monitoring it out of scientific curiosity.

    • raincoaster says:

      I am 5’1″ and I believe her. She has a tiny frame. I weighed 115 all through high school, when I was doing hours of physical activity every day including working on a farm. It wouldn’t be easy to stay at that weight by the time you’re 39 with kids, but yes, I believe it.

  2. chrissyms says:

    She is very petite. So 100 pounds isn’t underweight. She looks really healthy and she has had 3 kids!. She works to look good and eat healthy and it shows. Good for her. I don’t know if Kourt is the boring sister. I find Kim’s Shenanigans and just general dishonesty and fakeness to be boring AF.

  3. Skylark says:

    I don’t understand. What’s shocking about someone wanting to be the weight/size they’re most comfortable at?

    • FhMom says:

      I agree. She looks fine. I also think she is fibbing about her height. Most celebs round up or add an inch

      • rickestrick says:

        Most people, not just celebs! I remember being in a store trying to buy pants for my mum and I wanted to get an idea of the length on someone who is about 5’4 (my mum’s height) so myself and one shop assistant called over another shop assistant who looked about the right height. I ask her her height.

        “Oh I’m 5’8.”

        I looked down at her from my height of just under 5’8 — oh honey no, you are not even close!!

  4. Swack says:

    She is becoming just as much as a fame junky as the others. Since she and Scott have gone their separate ways she has been posting more and more pictures of her hotness. I’m so over all of them.

    • Pandy says:

      Total fame junky! But what “hotness”? Good bod, but she’s a plain jane otherwise. I’m more about faces than bodies.

  5. Veronica S. says:

    She looks good, but oh my God, stop humble bragging already and just outright brag. Nobody is fooled.

  6. Eleonor says:

    I think she is the only Kardashian who looks good, she hasn’t messed too much with her face. So keep going like this

    • Still_Sarah says:

      Exactly. I looked at the picture and thought “Her body looks really good but what did she do to her face?”.

    • Dani says:

      Exactly. She’s the only one who actually looks like what she should have naturally formed to look like. She’s open about her boob job when she was much younger and about her occasional botox/filler use. For someone who had three kids, I’d kill to look like that. She’s gorgeous.

  7. Beth says:

    She looks perfectly normal at her weight. I’m 5 inches taller, and only weigh 107, and it’s nothing I try to do, it’s just the way I naturally am.
    That last outfit is horrible

    • Veronica S. says:

      Build influences weight way more than people seem to realize. I’m at the other end – at my absolute thinnest, I was never less than 145 lbs at 5’7″. People were honestly shocked when I told them my weight. I weigh significantly more now as a result of some health problems, but even then, people guess that I’m 20-30 pounds lighter than I actually am.

      • rickestrick says:

        Me too Veronica! I actually, literally have big bones! I’m just under 5’8 and if I go any lower than 133 lbs I start to look really ill and frail with big bones jutting out everywhere. I’ve had an ex boyfriend ( a 6’2, 230 lb ex) who tried to give me a piggy back ride once and was shocked at how much I weigh. “I can’t believe you’re so heavy!!” Now I weigh even more but look the same, if not very slightly slimmer because I spent some time building up some muscle and burning off some fat.

        The number on the scales means nothing, people!! (within reason of course). I have stopped looking at the number because I will never like what it says and it actually has no bearing on how I look or feel! There’s brilliant before and after pics of women who’ve gained weight, but who’ve really gained muscle and lost fat. I loved it. They all look better at the higher weight. That’s when I realized the numbers mean nothing

  8. Lightpurple says:

    Why is she wearing pants made out of trash bags?

  9. Sayrah says:

    Twitter trolls are so sad

    • AnotherDirtyMartini says:

      Tell me about it – I’m getting twat trolled by Right Wingers after I dared post my opinion on Kavanaugh.

      Yeah, I’ve never watched the show, but they’re everywhere & I’ve noticed Kourtney is petite. 100 is believable.

    • Missy says:

      I hate trolls, and I hate how celebs are always responding to them like it matters or makes a difference, than when they respond it ends up being a top story somewhere, super annoying. Can’t you turn off people’s comments on Twitter and instagram? That’s what id do if I was getting so many troll comments all the time

    • Veronica S. says:

      I quite literally only have a Twitter for my side freelancing business. I stay the hell out of anything vaguely controversial otherwise because of them.

  10. Gaby says:

    Her body looks awesome. And she still has’t destroyed her face with plastic surgery, so that’s good.

  11. Michael says:


  12. jessamine says:

    My 5ft-even german grandmother who — wait for it — breaded and fried her breakfast sausages in margarine every single day of her life didn’t hit 100lbs until she was 86 and having severe mobility issues and lived another decade never going over 102lbs.

    Courtney looks healthy and is demonstrably active. This is a non-thing.

    • Nikki says:

      Mmmm..my kind of gal! Glad you enjoyed having a relationship with your grandma!

    • jwoolman says:

      Your grandma is proof that eating fat doesn’t make you fat! What matters is how much and what kind of food you eat otherwise.

  13. Alisha says:

    I think she is telling the truth or close to it, but I wish all of them would stop talking about their weight. They are all so obsessed with their looks, but I guess they do not have much else to talk about.

    • ttu says:

      What would they talk about then, though? Women’s rights? The sad truth is, they became famous talking about silly stuff because there’s a market for it. They know what they’re doing. This is the kind of info that their fans are dying to know. As sad as it makes me, clearly it’s working – Kim’s minutes of fame turned into an empire that’s been around for a decade now. And the only thing they sell is a vapid TV-show full of stupid, shallow women.

  14. me says:

    She says she doesn’t really restrict herself when she’s on vacation…but she’s ALWAYS on vacation ! The person who tweeted about her always eating on the show is right. Kourtney is always eating salad on the show…in almost every scene. I don’t know if this is done on purpose or not but it is true.

    • jwoolman says:

      Don’t think she is likely to put on extra weight from salad, unless she drowns it routinely in tons of oily dressing. But they’re rich and have access to great produce, and you don’t have to disguise the good stuff.

      Joel Furman (the MD who wrote Eat to Live) actually recommends aiming for at least
      2 lbs of non-starchy veg per day, especially greens, either raw or cooked, in addition to at least 4 servings of fruit, at least a cup of beans, and max 1 cup of starchy grains or veg. If she eats anything like that way, why not eat salad on the show? Especially if somebody else is making it.

  15. Lynne says:

    I walked next to kourtney and Scott shopping and I’d say she is about 4’10 and her weight looked good. I have seen Kim too, she is closer to 5’, not 5’3. All the sisters say they are taller than they actually are. Look at Khloé next to whatever baller she is with lol…. she is a lot shorter, more than a foot.

  16. NIKKI says:

    I used to get teased for being skinny. Growing up in two different countries and now living in my third, I’ve heard it all. I’m usually around 100 myself.

    And now, after 4 months of having my second babe, I’m steadily getting back to 100. Before this pregnancy I clocked in at around 44 kg. I gained around 11 kg during.

    I think it’s ridiculous how we judge each other’s weight.

    She looks fit. She looks healthy.

    I’m hoping to get there myself.


  17. Pulchritudinous says:

    I’m 5’0” and have weighed everywhere from 97 to 118. Funny enough my target weight this year is to get back to 100-103 where I definitely feel the fittest. I’d believe that she’s lying about her height and/or weight though

  18. moo says:

    I’m 4’11” She looks right around 100 lbs +/- a few. Remember the camera adds lbs…she’s thin/slender but does not look underweight.

  19. Kitten says:

    What is the difference between “legit eating” and “eating”?

    I believe she is 100 lbs. I’d also rather hear that a celeb works out 5-6 times a week and eats very healthy to maintain that physique than some BS like “I just drink a lot of water”.

    She looks awesome IMO.

    • Dani says:

      Agree! At least it comes off as relaetable and doable as opposed to wishing and hoping we could be celebs lol.

      I’m 5’8” and people never believe me when I tell them how much I weigh because I look thinner than the numbers should be. All about how you carry weight!

  20. Cuppatea says:

    She (and Kendall) looks the best out of all the sisters because she only has chest implants and not those horrendous butt bolt-ons the other three have. I think you can condition your body and taste buds. I was rarely allowed sweets growing up and never crave sweet things but love my vegetables. I have about three cokes and other sugary drinks a year and have dessert only for social purpose. Love ice cream about twice a month though but always get the dairy free ones, like coconut, almond, or other milk based ones.

    I think they talk about their weight and give exact numbers because their analytics team has figured out from social media and website hits that this one’s easy clickbait. I believe her 100lbs number but not Kim’s, which she gave out a few weeks ago, mainly because Kim has huge butt implants and chest implants.

  21. Jag says:

    I believe her. And I believe that she mentioned her weight since not long ago, Kim said she was something like 118 pounds. Since Kourtney weighs less and that’s all Kim cares about, it makes sense that she’d publish her weight.
