Kendall Jenner was born in Los Angeles, California to former Olympic champion Bruce Jenner (now known as Caitlyn Jenner) and Kristen Jenner. She has a younger sibling and eight older half siblings. Kendall started her schooling at the Sierra Canyon School in LA but switched to homeschooling later to pursue an early modelling career. Although she started modelling early, Kendall really became popular in 2007 when she started appearing on the reality TV series Keeping Up with the Kardashians along with her family members. The show shed light on the family members’ personal as well as professional lives.
Kendall was signed by Wilhelmina Models, a modelling and talent agency, when she was 13 years old. She got many modelling assignments as a result and continued to make progress. By 2015, she became one of the highest paid models and Forbes officially listed her as the highest paid model of the year 2017.
Kendall Jenner has led several successful business ventures and also created a lifestyle brand Kendall+Kylie with her sister Kylie Jenner. The 27-year-old also participates in philanthropic initiatives. She has set up an EBay account to auction her old clothes. The money earned from the sales is donated to the Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles. This is, of course, one of the several ways through which Kendall Jenner has tried to give back to society.
Kendall Jenner Training Regimen
Kendall Jenner trains with famed celebrity fitness coach Gunnar Peterson. He has worked with celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez and Angelina Jolie to name a few.
Kendall is an early bird as she wakes up at around 6:00 AM. Workout is the first thing she does in the morning. The 27-year-old typically heads out to the gym at 7:00 AM and works out for an hour or less to maintain a toned physique and stay in shape. Kendall Jenner does not train excessively for hours and hours. However, she lifts weights and does bodyweight exercises to gain and maintain muscle mass. Kendall Jenner does not use extremely heavy weights for lifting. Instead she uses moderate weights that enable her to do at least nine reps of the particular exercise.
Additionally, she likes to do a lot of ab exercises to stay lean. Most of her ab workouts are bodyweight exercises. She typically follows a pattern during her abs exercises and does every exercise for 30 seconds before moving on to the next one. Although she prefers to do resistance exercises over cardio-intensive work like running, Kendall does do cardio occasionally. She also takes kickboxing and hot yoga classes from time to time.
Kendall Jenner Workout

Forearm Planks (30 seconds)
- Start in the push-up position with your weight on your toes and palms.
- Slowly touch your elbows to the ground so that the forearm – from palms to elbows – are flat on the ground.
- The body should be straight from head to toe without a bend at the hip or knee joints.
- Hold the position for 30-second duration and feel the tension in the core.
High Planks (30 seconds)
- Start with the push-up position with your weight on your toes and palms.
- Hold this position for 30 seconds. In addition to the core, this variation of planks stimulates the shoulders as well as arms.
Side Plank (15 Seconds)
- Lie down on your right side and place the right elbow on the ground. The elbow should be at the shoulder level.
- Lift your hips so that the right toe and right forearm – from elbow to palm – are the only points of contact with the ground. The rest of the body is in a straight line from head to toe. Do not let the hips sag down.
- Hold this position for 15 seconds to stimulate the core muscles on the side. switch over to the left side, repeat the process.
Side Plank Knee to Elbow Crunches (5 Reps Per Side)

Rocking Plank (15 Seconds)

- Transition into the high plank position so that your entire body weight is supported on palms and toes.
- Shift your weight forward so that the shoulders are now over the palms and your feet roll forward at the ball of the foot. Return to the normal high plank position. This way, the core works continuously to stabilize your body as you shift your weight continuously.

Kendall Jenner Diet
You guessed it right. Kendall Jenner follows a healthy diet that focuses on achieving a perfect balance between protein, fats and carbohydrates. Kendall is not extremely particular about her food choices and she does not adhere to any specific type of diet such as vegan, paleo or keto for example. Her diet consists of simple everyday ingredients that most of us can easily find in our kitchen. Occasionally, she does indulge in high-calorie foods like fried chicken or pizza in moderation. Kendall keeps her blood sugar levels steady with healthy snacks like hummus, chips, guacamole and veggies.
Kendall does not restrict or eliminate any foods from her diet. However, she tries to keep cheese consumption in check to have a clear skin. Sufficient water consumption is also an important component of her dietary preferences.
Kendall often promotes detox teas on social media and it is an essential component of her dietary habits. On some days, she drinks up to 12 cups (2.8 liter) detox tea to remove the toxins from the body.
To sum up, Kendall Jenner keeps her diet simple yet beneficial for her health. So without further delay, let’s explore what her typical day of eating looks like.
Kendall Jenner starts her day with a healthy combination of protein, fats and carbohydrates. Usually her breakfast consists of avocado, eggs and toast which are healthy food choices for the macronutrients. However, she also eats Greek yoghurt with fruits for breakfast occasionally and chooses to go with a bowl of oatmeal as well.
Overall, her breakfast consists of:
- Greek Yoghourt with Fruits
- A bowl of Oatmeal
A chicken and rice meal is the staple of Kendall Jenner’s lunch. Once again, it helps her consume a balanced portion of protein, fats and carbohydrates.
Typically, it includes:
- Grilled Chicken
- Brown Rice
Kendall Jenner prefers snacking on:
Frozen Yoghurt is Kendall Jenner’s favorite treat. However, she is mindful of the amount and only treats herself with it once or twice a week. A tart Greek yoghurt is her preferred choice. It is also a wise one as the tart Greek yoghurt has relatively less sugar and more protein compared to other frozen yoghurts. Apart from the frozen yoghurt, Kendall also likes to indulge in Justin’s peanut butter cups and Twix bars once in a while.
Kendall Jenner tries to have her dinner as early as possible and avoids eating after 6 PM in the evening. She does like to surround herself with friends to lift her spirits. Therefore she goes out for dinner with friends once or twice a week. She likes to eat Sushi or Margarita Pizza. As mentioned before, Jenner likes to eat dairy products such as cheese, butter and milk in absolute moderation. Therefore she opts for vegan spaghetti at times.
Kendall does not cook all that often apart from her typical avocados, eggs and toast breakfast. However, when she is home for dinner, Jenner loves to cook one particular recipe that is delicious, nutritious yet simple. The 27-year-old once explained that she has all the ingredients required for this recipe at hand and it is a dish that she ‘could eat for every meal’. The ingredients for the recipe include:
- Fettuccine 16 oz
- Half onion, chopped
- 1 bag frozen peas
- 1 clove minced garlic
- Half cup grated Parmesan
- Salt and ground pepper
- Half lemon
To conclude, Kendall Jenner’s lifestyle is not a design of extremely restrictive dieting practices or impractical workout routines that busy individuals cannot dedicate their time to. Instead, it is an excellent example of how moderation and consistency can take you a long way.
