From screaming that she's "so f**king fat" to working out for 30 days straight after her daughter True's birth, the 36-year-old has battled years of insecurity.

Tearful meltdown to Lamar
Back in 2011, Khloe broke down in tears over her weight to her then-husband, Lamar Odom, saying she feels "so f**king disgusting".
She started sobbing in the middle of a cleaning spree on an episode of their reality show, Khloe & Lamar.
"It's not about the kitchen Lamar, it's about the fact that I'm so f***ing fat," she said, while crying on the floor."
"I'm so tired of pretending that I'm happy with my weight, just to be a good role model, when I'm so f***ing disgusting."
Lamar comforted her and gave her a kiss, saying he loves her "just the way she is".
Clash with Kris over weight
Earlier in that 2011 episode, Khloe's mother Kris Jenner had accused her of not properly representing a diet supplement that she, Kim and Kourtney were promoting.
Kris said: "You don't care and it's very, very upsetting to me because I've worked so hard at creating what I think is a great deal for you girls and you're not pulling your end of the weight.
"I feel like you could not chat about how many cookies you're eating in between meals to the media."
Khloe argued that she's trying to remain a healthy weight to increase her chances of falling pregnant with her and Lamar's first child.
She yelled: "To tell me I'm ruining a whole brand because of my weight gain makes me feel like s**t. Get over yourself. You're such a f**king raging lunatic and you're so evil.
"I'm too f**king fat, too f**king that. Do you want me to get pregnant? Do you want me to lose weight? You tell me you want me to have a baby every second, but I can't be on some crazy diet. I just don't get what you want out of me."
Hurt by diet demands
Khloe revealed that a member of her management team once told her to lose weight as she was affecting the famous family's "brand".
"[They said] 'Khloe, you got to lose weight 'cause you’re really hurting the brand,'" she recalled on an episode of her show Revenge Body in 2018.
“I’m a huge believer of it’s not what you say, it’s how you say it… I understand that was coming from my management side of my family, but it does hurt.”
The E! star has been managed by Kris since she started appearing on Keeping Up With The Kardashians in 2007.
Gym breakdown after True's birth
Khloe admitted to collapsing in the gym on the first day that she got back to working out following her daughter True's worth.
Intent on shedding the 60 lbs she gained during the pregnancy, she hit the gym – but ended up lying on the floor, covering her face with her top in frustration after struggling to get her body moving.
"Day one of me working out, I get in the gym, and I couldn’t do it," the Good American founder recalled on Revenge Body in 2019.
"I was like, 'What the f**k?' You have to kind of shock your body a little bit, and then eventually, it just started coming off."
The E! star – who shares two-year-old True with her rumored fiance Tristan Thompson – went on: "I started doing 30 days straight. Not anything too strenuous… if I needed to do 30 minutes of cardio.
"Whatever I could squeeze in when True was napping. That’s what I did."
Urge to crash-diet due to trolls
The mother-of-one admitted she feels the urge to crash-diet due to comments from cruel fat-shaming trolls
"In the world that this is, people criticize you," Khloe said on Drew Barrymore's show last month.
"They tell you you're fat even if you're not, and you start to believe you're fat. It's really so easy to fall victim to 'okay, I'm just gonna go on a crash diet…'"
The reality star added: "In my twenties I think I was chubbier, I got a divorce I think at 29, and I really needed an outlet. I just turned to the gym and it started really slow and now it's really religious for me."
Earlier this week, an unedited photo of Khloe, 36, posing in a leopard bikini went viral.
While the Keeping Up With the Kardashian star still looks amazing, fans noticed that her body didn't seem quite as toned and flawless as it does in her fashion shoots and social media images.
The Kardashians’ crisis management team is trying to completely remove the snap from the internet and has even sent out “legal threats” to take down the bikini shot.
Despite their efforts, the photo of Khloe has continued to be widely shared on the internet.
