Meet the YouTube sensation who lost more than 175 pounds in just three years! Could his weight loss methods work for you?
The Power of Willpower
Twenty-four-year old Jon Calvo says that he struggled with being overweight throughout his entire childhood and teenage years. Then, in April 2010, when he was just 21 years old, Jon weighed more than ever before: 340 pounds.
“I tried losing weight dozens of times since I was 7 years old, but each time ended in failure. No matter what, though, this time I wasn’t going to quit,” Jon says. “That boy who quit time and time again grew up to become the man who never gave up, because I don’t just have willpower — I am willpower!”
Jon committed himself to lose weight and documented his progress on YouTube. After three years, 6 million online views and 175 pounds lost, Jon joins The Doctors to show his amazing transformation.
This video contains footage from a live surgical procedure. Viewer discretion is advised. Watch as Dr. Lovelle removes more than 45 inches of excess skin from Jon’s body.
Jon rejoins The Doctors on stage to flaunt his new physique! “The fact that I can wear tight clothing without having to wear a compression garment … it makes the world of a difference,” Jon says.
