Firing back at "haters," Khloe Kardashian released side-by-side images from her racy Complex magazine photo shoot on Monday to try to prove how hard she's hit the gym.

Earlier Monday, the "Keeping up with the Kardashians" personality was excited to share her cover story for the August/September edition of Complex, but felt the need to respond to critics who claimed the magazine photos were the result of excessive editing.

"This one is for all the troll haters out there that cannot seem to give me an ounce of credit for my daily workouts!" reads the caption of her before-and-after pic, which collected more than 1.4 million likes on Instagram as of Tuesday morning.

Kardashian's Instagram caption stated that while the "retouched" version smooths out skin and removes shadows, she still admires how she looks in the previous image, "flaws and all."

Cameras will be in play again later this year, when the reality-TV star kicks off her late-night talk show, "Kocktails with Khloé," on FYI Network.
