Rob Kardashian feels great following his 40-pound weight loss, thanks to fitness inspiration from new girlfriend Blac Chyna.
Rob, who was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, has lost 40 pounds with a low carb diet and intense workouts, Examiner reported.
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, as Celebrity Health & Fitness has reported.
Kim is planning to shed an additional 40 pounds with the Atkins 40 Diet, which limits her daily carb intake to 40 net grams (i.e., total carbs minus the fiber content).
This isn’t the first time Kim has used the low carb Atkins diet to slim down. 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 in January 2016.
Not only did he lose 40 pounds, but he has finally started coming out of his shell after hiding out at home for the past three years, as Celebrity Health & Fitness reported.
While this is great news for the reclusive Rob, his 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.
Rob’s sisters Kim and Khloe are upset their only brother is siding with their sister’s rival, but Rob couldn’t care less because he’s happy for the first time in three years.
