Losing the battle with bulge? Rotund Rob Kardashian struggles to shift the pounds as he’s spotted with a bloated belly during hike
He is currently on a quest to shed 40 pounds from his frame. But it appears that Rob Kardashian may be losing his battle with the bulge. The reality star was spotted going on a hike in Culver City on Wednesday and still appeared to be sporting the same bloated belly he had several weeks ago.

Rob’s tummy could be seen protruding out as he donned a slimming black T-shirt that he had paired with baggy Pyrex shorts. He had worn the trendy shorts over workout leggings in an effort to cover his frame even further.
A black baseball cap shielded his face from the sun, and he wore a pair of socks from his own sock line Arthur George with his grey trainers.
Wobbly: Rob’s tummy could be seen protruding out as he donned a slimming black T-shirt that he had paired with baggy Pyrex shorts. Despite seemingly not slimming down as much as he perhaps wanted to, at least Rob is trying.
He was seen enthusiastically hiking around, sipping on some water to keep hydrated. Following the workout, Rob strolled back to his black SUV, hopping up on the side bar of the vehicle to check something that was on the roof.
Rob is currently in the middle of his weight loss regime and recently opened up about his new diet and exercise program.
He told Us Weekly that he was starting to see results after vowing to get back in shape several weeks ago.
‘I lost 5 to 7 [pounds] last week. I’m trying to lose 40,’ he said. It’s a little journey, but it’s good… I’m like 240lbs right now, probably 235lbs.’ The reality star admitted that he put on the pounds by eating ‘a lot of great food’ but had finally cracked down, motivated by ‘beautiful women!’
To drop the weight, the sock designer has dedicated himself to a low-carb diet and two-a-day workout routines, but he isn’t doing it alone.
‘I’ll [exercise with] my own trainer at eight in the morning before all that,’ he said. Rob gained 50 pounds since he split with his pop star girlfriend Rita Ora and hopes to reach his slim down goal by July 4. Meanwhile, Rob was recently charged with battery and petty theft. The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star received one count on each crime, according to TMZ, and both are classed as misdemeanors.
Rob was apparently taken to court by photographer Andra Vaik, who claimed he lashed out at her in March when she was trying to take a photograph of him shirtless.

At the time Rob was also accused of stealing her camera equipment and was expected to be sued for robbery and assault. The 26-year-old, whose near every move has been documented by the TV cameras for years, apparently went ‘berserk’ at Vaik on the fateful day. As a result, he took off with a memory card from her camera outside a gym in West Hollywood, California.
‘While this case is still in the preliminary stage, it is clear from our investigation that Robert Kardashian’s violent behavior and his use of force towards Ms. Vaik was completely unjustified,’ Vaik’s lawyer said.

According to the website, Rob says he lashed out because Ms. Vaik was trespassing on private property in order to get the shirtless snap. Witnesses, who are close to Rob, tell TMZ that the photographer was waiting to get the snaps from inside her car which was parked in the garage of the property. At the time of the incident, Ms. Vaik filed a robbery report with the police. She told law enforcement that Rob took her camera’s memory card in an effort to stop the shirtless images from being released to media outlets. He then told her that he would pay for the equipment later.
