The Harsh Reality Of Being 800 Pounds | Doctor Reacts


Today I took a look at the story of Casey from TLC’s “Family By The Ton”, a show dedicated to following the journey of a real family’s weight loss. Honestly, I’m not a fan of the title of this show, but I decided to press on anyway and see if there was anything valuable to discuss. At his heaviest, Casey weighed 845 pounds and almost never left his father’s house where he stayed in bed and played video games all day. Today, Casey is employed, living on his own, and weighs under 300 pounds. His journey is nothing short of incredible, due in part to a supportive family, a strong medical team, bariatric surgery, and a commitment to improving his quality of life. Go, Casey!

  1. So far it’s pretty spot on, I appreciate the honesty and professionalism. To hear someone speak from a medical standpoint it’s easier to take in criticisms and I really appreciate him explaining everything out to help others understand the mindset and how things are. It wasn’t a fun life, I was miserable, the whole jounrey has been insane and crazy to apart of. I appreciate Dr. Mike for putting this out there, shouting my channel out in the bio, talking on how I’m doing now and everything. This was a really great watch, thanks everyone for the love and support and thanks again Dr. Mike

  2. Can you do a video on depression?

  3. Dr. Mike since we’re on this topic, you should check out this Tiktoker named Shane (@shanewalley) whose been losing weight in a healthy way and recording him for the past year. It really motivates people and brings joy as he spreads kindness and support to anyone who needs it. The most wholesome person ever.
