Obesity is something that troubles many people irrespective of their age, gender, race, and even social or economic status. Gaining pounds is an easy thing, but losing them isn't. Food isn't always the prime culprit in obesity. Several psychological, metabolic, and hormonal disorders make people gain weight very fast. As said earlier, overweight can affect anyone, and celebrities are not an exception. Many of our beloved celebrities had gotten fat even after living a slim and healthy lifestyle for years. If you look at a celebrity diet and exercise regime, you'll be shocked to know how much they have to take care of their weight and diet. Read the weight gain stories of 12 celebrities and find out how and why overweight sabotaged their image.
1.Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson is the first American Idol winner, and this woman was quite a big name in the American music industry during the early 2000s. She is the best example of how a thin person can gain a lot of weight if they let their lifestyle habits go out of control. Kelly Clarkson, the mother of two, has never tried to control her excess weight. The Queen of Covers has been fat shamed by media on numerous occasions. Kelly Clarkson says she gets hurt when she hears people criticizing her overweight. While talking with Ellen DeGeneres on her show, Kelly Clarkson said she might never be able to get back to her former shape.

2.Mariah Carey

The Daydream singer has been dealing with weight-related issues from a very long time. Mariah Carey frequently gets plump, and the good thing is that she comes back to shape just when people think she's becoming a butterball. She looks a bit bulky lately; nothing like how she used to look during the earlier stages of her recording career. Mariah Carey has dealt with some eating disorders, mainly due to the personal life disturbances. The 46-year-old pop singer seems to be in good health in 2016, but we still feel she needs to get rid of those extra pounds. Interestingly, She has one of the top big breasts celebrity in Hollywood.

As you may know, Tyra Banks was once world's highest paid model. She was a Victoria Secret Angel between the years 1997 and 2005.

Anna Gunn, the actress who portrayed Skyler White on the famous AMC TV series, Breaking Bad, has puffed up lately. She had weight issues during the shoot of the show's fourth season. Anna Gunn looks a bit bulky in Season 4, and she linked her weight problems to cortisone medication she had received previously. The notable TV actress said she was ill at that time but didn't talk much about her illness. Apparently, it seems Anna Gunn weight problems have come back haunting her again. Weight gain, when caused by medical conditions, is very tough to handle. Let's hope she takes care of her health in a better way.

5.Rob Kardashian

Robert Kardashian was once a slim guy who looked like an average American. He now looks nowhere closer to how he used to look during his younger years. Rob Kardashian's case is a prime of example of psychological disorder driven weight gain. This guy became morbidly obese after breaking up with Rita Ora in 2012. He managed to bring his excessive weight under control in the subsequent years, thanks to his new girlfriend, Blac Chyna's efforts. As the couple is now on the verge of a split, the Kardashian family now fears that Rob may fall into the sinkhole of depression once again.

6.Val Kilmer

Val Kilmer, the American actor who is known throughout the world for playing leading roles in movies like Batman Forever, The Prince of Egypt, Joe the King, etc. was once a very healthy man. Back in the 90s, Kilmer was known for his killer body! However, in the recent years, he is hardly recognizable. Much of Val Kilmer's weight gain is linked to his uncontrollable eating habits. It seems the Batman star has focused on losing those extra pounds in the recent years, but he is still far from being called a fit person again. This picture clearly shows what has happened to him!

7.Steven Seagal

Steven Seagal is an American actor and a 7th-degree black belt holder in Aikido (martial art). In fact, Steve is the first foreigner to set up an Aikido training center in Japan. This man is a legendary martial artist, and now he looks like a typical 60-year-old fat family man. Steven Seagal remained healthy and maintained good physique even during his 50s. He is now 64 years old, and we think his overweight has something do with health issues like thyroid dysfunction. Let's hope Steven will be back to good health very soon. Hey, never mess with a 7th-degree black belt holder just because he is fat or old!

9.John Travolta

We know he is a senior man, and we believe he needs to stay fit at least from the health perspective.
