Rob Kardashian’s struggle with being overweight is no secret. It has been well-documented across the airwaves for the past few years –a fact that many attribute to his becoming more reclusive .
But that might finally be behind him, at least the weigh problem –thanks to a little love, and some playful public shaming.
According to TMZ, the 28-year-old Kardashian has shed 40 lbs in recent weeks since starting his romance with model Blac Chyna –and after cutting out red meats and carbs, too, of course.
Late last year Kardashian was diagnosed with diabetic ketoacidosis and it looks to have served as a wake-up call. Diabetic ketoacidosis, is a serious complication of diabetes that occurs when a person’s body produces high levels of blood acids, or ketones.
Rob, who ignored his family’s pleas to live back at home has since shacked up Blac Chyna. It would seem it’s working out for him. –love has inspired Kardashian to stick to a strict diet and fitness regime. TMZ reports that he has been hitting the gym five times a week looking to shed the 100lb he gained over the past year.
If it’s not love that inspired him then how about a little shaming? Blac Chyna raided Kardashian’s kitchen cabinets recently finding pizza dough mix and sorbet among other things, and then posted the photos on Instagram asking ‘Bae what is this?’
A new reality show?
If love and a public display of your kitchen cabinet doesn’t inspire you to lose weight, then your own reality show might do the trick.
“Rob and Blac are moving forward with their own spinoff reality show,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com. In fact, the couple is so serious that they’ve already begun production meetings. “Yesterday Rob and Blac spent almost two hours meeting with reality show producers in a Beverly Hills office.”
“The meeting was with Ryan Seacrest’s production team,” the source added.
