Allen and Vianey’s weight loss journey
They both decided to try and lose weight with hopes to undergo surgery, following fears that they might die if they didn’t.
Allen and Vianey started to follow Dr. Now’s strict diet, however Allen decided not to completely get rid of junk food due to his fear of falling into a depression – which he had before.
Instead, he cut down on snacking until they were only left with the food they were instructed to eat.
Allen ended up losing 130 pounds, with Vianey dropping 120, meaning they were both given the go-ahead for surgery.
While Allen had the procedure, Vianey ‘s heart stopped during the surgery, which meant that Dr. Now had to stop the operation.
