Keeping good on his new year’s resolution, Rob Kardashian was photographed leaving a Los Angeles gym on Monday.
The 26 year old Kardashian has made headlines in recent months for his rapid weight gain. Radar Online reports that after his tense breakup with British singer Rita Ora last year, Rob packed on more than 50 pounds to his 5’10 frame. Comments from tabloids have led older sister Khloe Kardashian to speak out in defense of her brother in the past. Radar Online reports that in an interview to an Australian radio show she said, “People give, especially guys, such a hard time to lose weight because people expect men to lose weight so much faster,” Khloe stated, “But losing weight in general is so hard and it takes a lot of time and determination. It doesn’t happen in one day!” Khloe too has made headlines for her fluctuating weight over the past few years.
Rob spoke to Entertainment Tonight about his dedication to losing weight, revealing that he planned to work out twice a week and take nutritional supplements. In March 2013, Radar Online reported that Rob weighed in at 240 pounds. Health and fitness website Livestrong notes that Kardashian is nearly 70 pounds over the recommended weight for his height.
Growing up in a family so beautiful, it comes as no surprise that Rob would want to shed pounds as quickly as possible.
