Rob Kardashian is running out of options.

As RadarOnline.com exclusively revealed, in a last-ditch effort to save his life, the ex reality star is headed to a “health farm,” after his rollercoaster weight battle has him ballooning to nearly 300 pounds!

“The plan is to send him off to a five-star retreat for as long as it takes, months even, so he can come back and start totally afresh,” a source exclusively told Radar. “He knows this is the only option if he doesn’t want a Lap Band.”

As readers know, Rob has gained an unhealthy amount of weight since we were first introduced to him on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. During that time, his family urged the reality star, who has diabetes, to adopt a healthier lifestyle, but instead, he dropped completely out of sight, seemingly embarrassed by what he had become.

Rob’s self-esteem has dipped so low he refuses to leave his home and has admitted he’d “rather die than be seen,” a source told Radar exclusively.

The situation had become so dire he hadn’t been seen in over 900 days – only finally recently reappearing in public to celebrate his model sister Kendall Jenner‘s 24th birthday on October 31, 2019.

But after years of struggling, insider say Rob is finally coming to terms with the fact transforming his life won’t happen overnight — or easily.

“Rob’s sick of being so chronically overweight, particularly in a house filled with health freaks, and he’s been putting this off forever but even he now accepts it’s time,” said the source.

Take a look back at Rob’s rollercoaster weight ride in this Radar gallery.
