Rob Kardashian has been missing from the public eye for months, as he’s basically been living in seclusion, seemingly hoping that the paparazzi don’t snap photos of him. The youngest of the Kardashian clan, Rob has struggled with his weight for years, and may not be taking a big step in his weight loss journey.
According to Radar Online, Rob Kardashian is seriously considering having weight loss surgery. The surgery, known as gastric bypass, has been used by many, including celebrities like Star Jones, Sharon Osbourne, Al Roker, Roseanne Barr, Randy Jackson, and most recently, Magic Johnson’s son, EJ Johnson.
Kardashian’s weight and related issues have kept him from many family moments such as holidays, family vacations, the gang’s reality TV show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, and even his sister’s, Kim Kardashian’s, wedding to Kanye West. It seems Rob just doesn’t like the way he looks, and has become depressed about his situation.
While Rob has refused the help that his family members, such as Kris Jenner and Khloe Kardashian, have tried to give him in the past, it seems he is now trying to get back in shape.
“Rob knows that being as large as he is and not being in shape is really unhealthy and not good for his heart.”
People Magazine reports that Rob Kardashian is said to be trying to eat better and get more exercise, but he knows he may need more extreme measures to help him shed the pounds.
“He has looked into having gastric bypass surgery. He has tried to get the weight off before and feels that the surgery would be safest and easiest way for him to do so.”
Kardashian has also been down in the dumps because he’s losing a lot of men who were very close to him, including former brother-in-law Lamar Odom, who, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, may be dishing some big family secrets, and his stepdad, Caitlyn Jenner, who made headlines for coming out as transgender and publicly transitioning from her former self, Bruce.
“After losing so many guys close to him recently he was given a new desire to live and he wants to get back to the guy he was before he got into partying.”
It seems Rob Kardashian has a serious addiction to food, which he is aware of and is trying to change as well.
“Food is Rob’s vice right now and he is intent on beating this through whatever is necessary at this point. Rob’s whole problem right now is that he is using food as his substitute to get over his issues.”
Hopefully, Rob Kardashian can get all the help he needs to get healthy and start living a fuller, happier life.
