It’s no secret that Rob Kardashian has been struggling with his weight — it’s a central theme on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, not to mention, fodder for tabloid criticism. But body image isn’t the only issue here; if Rob doesn’t adopt a healthier lifestyle, he could find himself saddled with everything from diabetes to liver failure.
Rob Kardashian’s weight gain has spurred plenty of ridicule on Facebook, but the reality star insists that he’s working hard to drop those extra pounds. Unfortunately, based on feedback from his doctor, Rob is going to have to put in quite a bit more effort, as his current habits are putting him at risk for a whole host of health issues.
Fans faced an incredibly uncomfortable scene when, last night on Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Rob finally followed Kris Jenner’s advice and sought medical help. During his visit to the doctor, he learned that the consequences of his recent weight gain had the potential to extend far beyond poor body image. His doctor explained, “Your liver is shutting down.This is life-threatening at this point. You can only sustain this level of being unhealthy for so long.”
It appears that Rob has since taken this feedback to heart. In the last few months, he’s made an effort to improve his diet and spend more time at the gym. However, some fans worry he’s starting to slide; after a period of frequent Twitter updates on his weight loss journey, Rob seems to have backed off on the social media documentation.
Do you think Rob Kardashian’s weight loss efforts will prove successful? Feel free to share your opinion in the comments section below!
