Ex-NFL Lineman

I Feel Rob Kardashian's Pain

It's Hard to Lose Weight When You're Famous

Rob Kardashian has an NFL sympathizer ... a former lineman who tells TMZ Sports it can be HARDER to shed the extra lbs when you have the world at your fingertips ... but he insists, it CAN be done. 

We spoke with former Pittsburgh Steelers offensive lineman Alan Faneca ... who famously dropped more than 100 pounds after retiring from pro football ... and he tells us he knows the struggle big stars like Rob face when they try to lose weight.

Faneca points out that celebrities like Rob are constantly out at fancy restaurants and catered events -- and it's tough to maintain a strict diet when faced with so much temptation. 

"It makes it harder ... it takes a lot of willpower to go to amazing restaurants and order grilled fish and vegetables. It takes A LOT of willpower."

"You're at a restaurant ... and there are 100 dishes that sound great ... and you have to pick the one that doesn't."

Alan also says Rob's plan on getting back to the gym when he "chooses" is a bad excuse -- saying, "We HAVE to be in shape. We don't all need 6-packs, but you only have ONE body. And you need to take care of it. It's gonna keep you here." For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!

The problem with Rob is he seems like fat dude that invents new meals every time he eats, like pizzaburgers or bacon wrapped burritos, he just needs to eat moderately, stop the fast food eating and hit the gym every day

He is big, but he's NOT a "big star." TMZ, you idiots drool over people with no claim to fame other than the publicity you give them.

Yeah, it's hard to lose weight. Nothing to do with being famous, or with THINKING you're famous.

With all his money - for God's sake - send him to a fat farm. This weight is too hard on his heart.

I feel really bad for Rob...Out of the whole trash family, he is the only one I like. He's constantly overshadowed by his hoe bag sisters. He used to be hot when he was thin. Hopefully he can lose the weight, but more importantly for this health.
