However, the insider said there is one issue that continues to keep Kardashian from achieving his goals. "Food is Rob's vice right now and he is intent on beating this through whatever is necessary at this point," the insider said. "Rob's whole problem right now is that he is using food as his substitute to get over his issues." Do you think Rob should be considering surgery to lose weight?
