Jorge Garcia, who appeared in Lost between 2004 and 2010, along with many other appearance including an episode of How I Met Your Mother, Alcatraz, Californication, and the new Hawaii Five-0, has been told he must lose weight or risk death. He now weighs around 400 pounds.
Jorge’s problem appears to be simply – he just cannot stop gorging himself. However, there is always an underlying reason why somebody does this to such an extreme and he needs help to identify the reason and take action.
The National Enquirer showed Jorge at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in Utah; he was huge. His friends and family are very concerned for his health. He is risking developing Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and sudden heart attack.
At 6 foot 1 tall Jorge has a lot of room to hide some extra pounds, but he is knocking on a massive 400 pounds at the moment, a weight that will take a very long time to shift.
One of his friends said: “No one wants to see that happen to him. Jorge is one of the nicest, gentlest souls you;d ever want to meet, but he just cant keep the pounds off”.
Weight loss for Lost
In 2004 Jorge did lose 30 pounds when he first joined the Lost crew to start filming, so it is within him to lose weight. But over the last 10 years he has gained a massive amount of weight, especially so in the last few years. Eating appears to have become an addiction for him.
One suggestion is that he may have to have gastric bypass surgery to cut his appetite. It may be his only hope now.
Otherwise, finding the root cause of his dangerous eating habit is vital. He has a very unhealthy relationship with food and needs to tackle this head on with professional counselling as well as diet and exercise help from a trusted fitness professional.
