It’s been a struggle for Rob Kardashian to lose the weight he gained in the past few years and while he’s still in hiding, the former Keeping Up With the Kardashians star is trying some odd methods to drop the pounds.
A source close to the Kardashian family told OKMagazine.com that since Rob has tried every trick in the book and failed, he’s turned to hypnosis and is even considering lap band surgery in a last-ditch bid to get into shape.
“He’s had a professional hypnotist coming over to his house for the past couple of weeks and the results have been positive,” the source said. According to Mayo Clinic, hypnosis can make a person “more responsive to suggestions, including behavior changes that can help you lose weight,” though there has not been solid scientific evidence to back these claims as a primary weight loss method.
As for surgery, Rob is willing to consider it but will “only do the lap band option if hypnosis doesn’t work first.”
“He admits he’s not in the right place mentally to live a healthy life, and that’s what’s been the problem,” the source revealed.
Rob has already made progress, too, on his spiritual journey, the insider revealed. “He’s learning not to stress so much about his demons, which is why he recently posted that photo on Instagram,” citing the throwback of him eating a pulled pork sandwich shared on July 31.
