300 Pound Weight Loss: “I’m Like A New Person”
In 2016, Jermaine Gause was a whopping 639 pounds, had a number of health problems and honestly was afraid of dying. He went on the show The Doctors to find some help. He has now lost over 300 pounds naturally!
“I’m not ready to leave this planet,” he said at the time. “And I know the way I am now, I probably don’t have much time.”
“I felt bad about the way I looked and what I let myself get to,” Gause explains.
Gause’s mother, Gretchen Barrow, expresses her concern over her son’s extreme weight gain, especially in recent years.
“It wasn’t until the past three years that I said, ‘Oh my God, how did I let this happen?’ ” Barrow says, adding that she will lose her son if a major change doesn’t happen soon.
A health check-up reveals Gause is ingesting five times the amount of recommended sodium per day, putting a huge strain on his cardio vascular system and eating ten times the recommended level of sugar. He also fits the symptoms for fatty liver disease and suffers from malnutrition.
Gause, who’s originally from Ann Arbor, Mich., also learned that his daily sugar consumption was ten times the recommended amount.
But, with determination, a mindset of overcoming and a with loss and fitness coach, Gause lost an incredible 303 pounds–and counting.
“Since losing this weight, I’m like a new person,” Gause says in this exclusive clip from Friday’s episode. “Every day I wake up and I can move.”
