Rob Kardashian has lost an additional 10 pounds, bringing his total weight loss to 50 pounds.
Rob “lost another 10 pounds and has really been taking care of himself,” a source told ET. “It really all is because of Blac Chyna. Chyna is great. She has brought this new side of him out, the old Rob! He’s really having a lot of fun.”
Kardashian has been estranged from his sisters since he began dating Blac Chyna in January 2016, but she has really helped him clean up his diet and motivated him to work out again.
Rob’s sisters Khloe, Kim and Kourtney are reportedly furious at him for dating Chyna, who’s feuding with their younger sister, Kylie Jenner.
Kylie and Chyna have been engaged in a petty Instagram rivalry ever since Kylie started dating Chyna’s ex-boyfriend, rapper Tyga, with whom she has a son.
Kardashian’s weight loss secrets are a low-carb diet that excludes red meat and fast food. Rob also exercises 5 days a week to manage his type 2 diabetes.
Rob’s older sister, Kim Kardashian, recently lost 30 pounds with the low-carb, high-fat Atkins diet. Kim is planning to shed an additional 40 pounds with the Atkins 40 Diet, which limits her daily carb intake to 40 net grams.
In 2014, Kardashian lost 56 pounds in six months by following the Atkins diet and limiting her daily carb intake to less than 60 net grams.
Low carb, high-fat diets like the Atkins and ketogenic diets promote rapid weight loss by inducing the body to burn fat for fuel, said obesity expert Dr. Eric Westman, co-author of Keto Clarity.
Physician and Harvard University nutrition professor Dr. David Ludwig agrees.
Low carb diets keep blood sugar levels stable, suppress appetite, and enhance mental clarity and mood, said Dr. Ludwig, author of the bestseller Always Hungry? Conquer Cravings, Retrain Your Fat Cells.
Meanwhile, Rob Kardashian is a lot happier since he began dating Blac Chyna. Not only has he lost 50 pounds, but he has finally started coming out of his shell after being a recluse for the past three years.
Rob’s sisters Kim and Khloe are furious their only brother is siding with their sister’s rival, but Rob doesn’t care because he’s happy for the first time in years.
