Craig Robinson’s Weight Gain: Drinking Booze and Eating Junk Food Led Robinson Gaining Massive Weight!
The American star, Craig Robinson (@mrcraigrobinson), currently making rounds for his lead role on Peacock‘s Killing It, seems to have lots of attention from the audience as his weight journey is switching so fast. When the actor underwent a massive weight gain in the past, he reached around 300 pounds.
Craig Robinson doesn’t seem to be overweight genetically but rather due to pressures and the struggle with time management in his schedule. As he is struggling to stay fit and healthy, people are assuming he might be suffering from some disease. He gained a lot of weight in his early days as an actor due to his hectic schedule and lack of attention to his health.
The actor seems to have gained weight as a result of his habit of drinking booze and eating junk food. Some audience even trolled him for eating spaghetti instead of working out, pointing it out as his cause of weight gain.
When he gradually got fitter and looked fantastic, he had cut out a lot of food and drinks. However, since he has a history of drug misuse, it just adds to the negative comments.
Fans of Craig Robinson have also been spreading rumors that he had heart problems in the past. Not only has he gained weight, but he has also been injured while playing softball, which fans feared would prevent him from appearing in the final season of The Office. However, those rumors were never confirmed.
When comparing Craig Robinson’s body size in the first season of The Office to his body size in the ninth, there was a vast difference, which is unlikely to be for script reasons.
Right now, the actor appears to weigh more than 350 pounds, and he is now attempting to eat well in order to maintain his daily calorie intake. We can assume Craig has all sorts of sizes of material in his closet because he is transitioning from skinny guy to fat guy and then from fat guy to fit guy, and now fit guy to fat guy once again in his latest project, Killing It.
Some of his fans also blamed his breakup, claiming that he underwent weight gain because of his binge eating condition following the split. After having a nervous breakdown and staying home alone, some fans trolled him while he ate a bunch of tacos in his basement.
Several of Craig Robinson’s fans often express concerns about him gaining unhealthy weight, which is detrimental to his health. Craig, on the other hand, understands that in order to make his fans happy, he must first start being fit and spend hours working out. But as we can witness, it’s far from easy!
