Rob Kardashian’s weight has been a sensitive topic for the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star for several years now. Kardashian and his famous family members have commented on the steps he has taken to drop the pounds naturally. However, a source speaking to RadarOnline.com has revealed that Kardashian is now considering gastric bypass surgery to help him drop the unwanted weight!
Kardashian has kept an extremely low profile for the past two years. But during rare sightings, he appears to still be dealing with weight troubles.
A family source said Kardashian has recently hit the gym and attempted to begin to change his habits.
"Rob knows that being as large as he is and not being in shape is really unhealthy and not good for his heart," a family said.
The source added that Kardashian is also considering surgery to aid his weight loss. "He has looked into having gastric bypass surgery," the source said. "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."
The source added that the deaths of several of Kardashian's close friends have given him “a new desire to live and he wants to get back to the guy he was before he got into partying."
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?
