The Reality Of The Ravages Of Morbid Obesity Hits Hard

Filed under: Health — @ October 5, 2006

Some people ask me why I am so adamant about what I write about regarding weight loss and the low-carb lifestyle. Others wonder if I should be using my time in other ways to do other things that I like to do. It’s certainly a valid question and I appreciate the concern that people have shown for me and acknowledging the sacrifices I have made to do what I do.

But what I am going to blog about today is exactly why I spend so many hours relentlessly typing away the message of livin’ la vida low-carb and making your body as healthy as it can be. Well, it’s not so much a what, but a WHO: a man by the name of Kevin Lee Moore.

I’ve told you about Kevin before and he took a sudden turn for the worse this week. Back in November 2005, doctors gave him one year to live if he didn’t lose weight as soon as possible. At the time Kevin weighed close to 600 pounds.

Just as he has done on every previous time he attempted weight loss or anything in his life, Kevin was gung ho about it…for a while. As in a couple of months. But then it happened to him–he starts feeling a little bit better, thinks he’s gonna be okay now, stops doing those things that are essential for improving himself, and goes into complete denial about his morbid obesity.

Keep in mind, this is the same man who in 1999 at the age of 32 experienced three heart attacks in the span of a week that nearly killed him. And it’s ONLY because of the complications brought on by his massive weight problem.
