Where Is Ryan Barkdoll, The Star Of ‘My 600-lb Life,’ Now?

Ryan Barkdoll, starting at 740 kilos, lived in a recliner. Unable to fit into a bed, he resided with his mother and her boyfriend in Montana. However, Ryan dreams of independence and starting his own family.

Growing up in Oregon with his mother and stepfather, Ryan believed his stepfather was his biological father. Unfortunately, he didn’t receive the love and attention he needed under his stepfather’s care. At 10, he was sent to live with his grandparents.

Ryan Barkdoll faced numerous tragedies leading to a downward spiral. At age 10, weighing 100 kilos, he lost his grandfather. That same year, he found out his drug-addicted biological father had passed. By 17, he weighed over 300 kilos and battled drug abuse.

Seeking employment as a welder at 18, Ryan struggled. Unable to hold a job, he returned home and fell back into unhealthy patterns. Luckily, a friend helped him secure a job in Montana. However, he was let go due to his size shortly after starting.

To support Ryan, his mother and her boyfriend relocated to Montana. The series captures his journey from there. Dr. Now’s weight loss program involved a 1,200-calorie, no-carb diet. Despite efforts from Dr. Now and Ryan’s mother, he resisted help. Secretly ordering junk food, he failed to comply with the program requirements.

Expected to move to Houston, Texas for the program, Ryan didn’t follow through. As of December 16, 2021, he’s out of the country and has cut off contact with Dr. Now.
