My 600-lb Life takes a look at the lives of people struggling with obesity, trying to lose the pounds and live healthier, happier lives. The TLC reality series, which puts its participants on a rigorous regimen of diet control, exercise and lifestyle changes, TLC’s reality show is directed by weight loss surgeon Dr. Now. As its title suggests, the programme is aimed at what Dr. Now calls “the super-morbidly obese”, i.e. people who weigh over 600 kilos. While 42.4% of Americans are obese – according to the Trust for America’s Health 2020 report – the 600-pound-plus minority are at imminent risk because of their weight. Since the series began in 2012, dozens of participants have turned to “My 600-lb Life” in hopes of finally achieving a weight loss that could be life-saving.
Many are struggling with the serious underlying issues behind their obesity problems, ranging from debilitating medical conditions to a traumatic past.
As the programme can only offer a brief snapshot of their journey, we are often left wondering what happened to them after the cameras stopped rolling. Renee Biran was one of those memorable candidates. As Express Digest reported, her weight gain went out of control when she became a fetish model for viewers who paid to watch her eat. As she was forced to move in with her children and was dependent on their daily care, she hoped My 600-lb Life would help her turn things around.
What Is ‘My 600-lb Life’ Star Renee Biran Doing Today
After Renee Biran weighed 631 pounds on My 600-lb Life, she has successfully lost 381 pounds, as reported by The Cinemaholic. This weight loss of about 250 pounds is partly due to the gastric bypass surgery she underwent after losing enough weight to do so safely. However, his success was followed by an accident. As Screen Rant reports, he was diagnosed in early 2019 with Guillain-Barre syndrome – an unusual and disabling autoimmune disease.
It thwarted her hopes of further surgery to remove excess skin left over after weight loss, and led to her being institutionalised.
Despite this confusion and frustration, her social media activity points to a silver lining. A Facebook post from May 2019 showed her in front of a Las Vegas sign with a man named Ronnie Earl Roden, with the cheery caption: ‘Hey baby lets go to Vegas, Kiss the single life goodbyeee’. So it looks like she might have got married! Or at the very least, a loving partner may have entered his life. Updates on Renee Biran’s life since 2019 have been relatively scarce. Although one comment 2. A comment on a Facebook photo posted on January suggests she may be in a rehabilitation centre, a common destination for those recovering from weight loss surgery and seeking rehabilitation towards a long-term healthier lifestyle.
