Rob Kardashian may be headed to rehab to treat his depression and alleged drug addiction following his 100-pound weight gain.
Kardashian has been battling severe depression and anxiety since gaining a dramatic amount of weight three years ago, Examiner reported.
Ironically, sister Kim is fitter than ever after her 56-pound weight loss on a low carb ketogenic-style Atkins diet (details below).
Rob has admitted on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” that he is extremely depressed. Sister Kourtney said Rob’s serotonin levels had plummeted to dangerously low levels.
The 5-foot-11 Rob, who has repeatedly referred to himself as “Fat Boy,” reportedly weighs 300 pounds. It’s a stark contrast to the buff build he sported in 2012. Sources say Rob had holed himself up in his L.A. condo doing drugs, smoking weed, watching movies, and binge-eating in the weeks leading up to Kim’s May 2014 wedding.
Rob then skipped the wedding at the last minute because he was depressed over his weight gain and felt uncomfortable around the slim, attractive guests at the star-studded ceremony. However, it seems Kardashian may be turning a corner.
Celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson said he and Rob recently kick-started a strict weight-loss regimen that includes daily hour-long workouts. Gunnar said Rob is more determined than ever to get healthy and lean.
Peterson, creator of Core Secrets: 25 Minute Full Body Workout, helped Khloe lose 30 pounds last year, and helped Kim lose 56 pounds on a low-carb, high-fat ketogenic-inspired diet.
Meanwhile, Kim Kardashian has been looking more bootylicious than ever since losing 56 pounds just six months after giving birth to daughter North.
Kim followed a low-carb, high-fat (LCHF) ketogenic-inspired Atkins diet that limited her daily carb intake to less than 60 grams.
The ketogenic diet is a high-fat, low-carb, moderate-protein diet. Focusing on healthy fats and limiting carbs promotes weight loss by causing the body to burn body fat for fuel, according to the book Keto Clarity.
Kim’s daily menu combined proteins like fish, chicken and meat; healthy fats like olive oil, avocados and nuts; low-starch vegetables, and some low-glycemic fruits like berries, Linda O’Byrne, chief nutritionist for Atkins Nutritionals, told me.
O’Byrne said LCHF diets suppress appetite better than low-fat diets, so you don’t feel hungry all the time. “Low-carb diets keep blood sugar levels stable and prevent food cravings,” said Linda.
