Updated: 

Khloe Kardashian has topped a new list of the fittest female celebrities.

The US reality TV star beat celebs such as Adriana Lima and Davina McCall to take the top spot in Heat magazine's Fit List, a line up of women who most embody the "strong beats skinny" mindset.

Fit List judge Dalton Wong said of the star: "Khloe hasn't tried to fit the norm of what other girls or other people think she should look like. She exercises her legs to embrace them, not to make them really small.

"She is doing everything that I would tell my daughters to do: love what you were made with and don't conform to looking a certain size."

Talking about her incredible body transformation, Khloe has previously said: "Mine was a really slow process. But again, I didn't seek to lose 20lbs in 20 days. That wasn't my goal.

"It was more that, emotionally, I just wanted to feel strong."

The Heat Fit List was compiled by a panel of industry experts, who scrutinised celebrities' workouts, approach to nutrition and attitude to their bodies.

Newly crowned Queen of the Jungle Scarlett Moffatt was second place in the Fit List , after she changed her eating habits and exercise routine and lost weight.
