It was less than a year ago that Kris Jenner planned an intervention for her son, Rob Kardashian, because she felt his weight would lead him to a premature death.
The 28-year-old has since begun to shed the pounds — but his friends fear that his rapid weight loss, achieved with the so-called “heart attack diet,” could kill him first.

An insider tells Radar Online, “Rob’s been yo-yo dieting for years, but the constant stopping and starting of it all is taking a real toll on his health.”
Most recently, he’s been sticking to a diet inspired by the Master Cleanse — in which you eat no food, and rely on a “juice” made up of lemonade, maple syrup and cayenne peppers — and the results have been troubling.

“He’s dehydrated all the time, gets palpitations and it’s putting a lot of stress on his heart while his body goes into starvation mode,” the source says.
“He should be taking the same time to lose this weight as he did to put it on, but now that he’s seeing results, you just can’t stop him.”
Hopefully Rob will get back in shape soon — and stay healthy while doing so.
