Jorge Garcia is pushing 400 pounds according to sources and is at risk for serious health problems that could end his life early. The 40-year-old actor has gained significant weight since his time on "Lost" and some worry that he's going to eat himself into the grave. On Jan. 29, Mail Online reported that Garcia's friends are really worried about his weight and his health as a result.
"We're talking Type 2 diabetes or, worse, a heart attack. No one wants to see that happen to him. Jorge is one of the nicest, gentlest souls you'd ever meet, but he just can't keep the pounds off," said a pal.
Jorge Garcia at 400 pounds might need more than just a diet. Friends say that gastric bypass surgery might be "his only hope" and that not doing the surgery would almost guarantee him a shorter life. While Garcia was always on the larger side, his weight has started to get the best of him now and friends say that it has become a major problem in his life.
Garcia had lost some weight while on "Lost" but not much. Over the past three years, his weight has gotten out of control. Hopefully he can get the help that he needs and live a healthier lifestyle before it's too late.
