My 600-lb life stars Allen and Vianey were both severely obese and needed Dr. Now’s help if they wanted to live. The couple decided to embark on the journey together, to lose weight and become healthy.
However, fans want to know how the couple is doing now. Have they maintained their weight after surgery or have they fallen back into the old, comfortable habits they were used to for so many years?
Vianey and Allen bonded together over their toxic love of food, but of course, it’s also the one thing that could keep the couple apart forever. However, the two have decided to get healthier so that the threat of their weight killing them is no longer an issue.
The loving couple made the long trip to Houston, Texas to see Dr. Now. At the beginning of their trip Vianey weighed 594 pounds, Allen was at 648 pounds. However, Dr. Now knew the couple could lose weight, and he put the couple on a strict 1,200-calorie diet that allowed no snacks and limited carbohydrates. Vianey was able to lose 226 pounds and Allen was down to 376 pounds, having lost a total of 272 pounds.
My 600-Lb Life: What Happened to Vianey and Allen?
Both Allen and Vianey were approved for gastric bypass surgery, but when Dr. Now put Vianey under the knife to perform the procedure, her heart stopped and she had no choice but to stop the operation immediately. “You didn’t get the operation because your heart stopped,” Dr. Now told her after learning that the surgery was not completed.
Vianey was heartbroken at first, but she was able to put the disappointment behind her and stick with the program. “There’s no doubt in my mind that as long as we have each other and we’re doing this together, we’re going to be able to do anything and everything we need to do to achieve our goals and get that life that we’ve both dreamed of our whole lives and I know that we both absolutely cannot wait and we’re excited to see what the future holds,” she told the camera.
Allen and Vianey both had weight loss surgery and will soon be celebrating 12 years together! The couple lost a lot of weight on the show. Allen went from 648 to 376 pounds, and Vianey dropped to 368 pounds. Since then, they have collectively lost 500 pounds and look very different in their photos. According to a Newsweek article, Allen recently trimmed his beard, while Vianey has joined a three-month program that focuses on physical and spiritual wellness.
