For Rob Kardashian, the sugar craving is real.
On Thursday, Jan. 14, Kardashian posted a meme of his brother-in-law, Kanye West, laying in a bathtub covered in delicious donuts. West has a silly, sugar-high smile on his face. Donuts can do that to you. The post is now deleted, but Kardashian captioned it with, “Mood lol.”
Kardashian has been a recluse over the past year after gaining 100 pounds. He was hospitalized and diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in December 2015. The family has discussed his challenges on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, even though Kardashian hasn’t appeared on recent seasons of the show.
It does seem, though, that his health scare has caused Kardashian to make some changes. His sister Khloé Kardashian revealed during an interview with Good Morning America on Wednesday, Jan. 13 that her younger brother is doing well following his hospitalization and diagnosis.
“Yeah, he had a health scare,” she said. “Leaving that in 2015: He got out [of the hospital] before the new year. I was like, ‘OK. Let’s leave all that stuff then. Listen, you found out what the problem is. Let’s tackle it head-on.'”

Khloé believes that the health scare may be exactly what Rob needed to tackle his problems and change his diet.
“Everything happens for a reason, so that health scare? If that’s gonna shake him up a little bit and jump-start his health journey, then great,” she told GMA. “I’m right here for him.”
An insider tells Us Weekly that following his hospitalization, Rob has agreed to “follow-up doctors’ appointments” and to “taking medication to control his blood sugar.”
Sugar is extremely addictive and very difficult to cut from your diet. No wonder Rob is craving donuts. But it’s clear he needs to change his eating habits. He can crave donuts, but hopefully he won’t give in.
