Today I took a look at the story of Casey from TLC’s “Family By The Ton”, a show dedicated to following the journey of a real family’s weight loss. Honestly, I’m not a fan of the title of this show, but I decided to press on anyway and see if there was anything valuable to discuss. At his heaviest, Casey weighed 845 pounds and almost never left his father’s house where he stayed in bed and played video games all day. Today, Casey is employed, living on his own, and weighs under 300 pounds. His journey is nothing short of incredible, due in part to a supportive family, a strong medical team, bariatric surgery, and a commitment to improving his quality of life. Go, Casey!

So far it's pretty spot on, I appreciate the honesty and professionalism. To hear someone speak from a medical standpoint it's easier to take in criticisms and I really appreciate him explaining everything out to help others understand the mindset and how things are. It wasn't a fun life, I was miserable, the whole jounrey has been insane and crazy to apart of. I appreciate Dr. Mike for putting this out there, shouting my channel out in the bio, talking on how I'm doing now and everything. This was a really great watch, thanks everyone for the love and support and thanks again Dr. Mike

I love rewatching this video. Makes me so happy. I actually continue to follow this guy - the last picture being from October 2020, maybe you could do an interview with him this October a year later to promote and encourage your followers to live a healthy lifestyle, no matter where they start! Just an idea :-)

I don’t understand parents that are passive toward there children’s health. I had 5 kids by 28 years old. Been married 11 years to my first love. We go out of our way to keep our kids healthy. We have friends who’s kids are morbidly obesse yet they let their kids eat popsicles and drink soda all day. I’ve never brought soda in my house. Don’t worry, they kids aren’t missing out. They eat lots of steak and brisket!!!!

I want to know more about the Father's psychology- that he would do this for his 34 year old son for so long... Like surely he has lost someone(s) he loves and he's clinging.
Why is no one mentioning fasting for 21 days? Every month for 12 months?

What is impressive and stood out right away to me is that although he is 700+ pounds, he's still very "mobile"... he's walking himself, sits down, stands up, walking up the stairs, pretty agile. I've seen videos of 6-700 pound people who can not really do (or at least not willing to do?) any of that...

When Mike's about to cry when doctor tells the guy he's going to die... That really had an impact in different ways on me. And, I might be wrong, but it kinda feels like he's been there, and I can bet it ain't easy even for the doctor's side.

Hi Dr. Mike, Can you do a reaction on the girl who appeared on Dr. Phil and was morbidly obese. She was talking about eating while preparing breakfast. And she was eating probably 5,000 calories for breakfast and 5,000 for lunch, and probably 5,000 more for dinner. Please? Thank you! Edit: Actually she eats 30,000 calories a day!!!

I weigh approximately 370 pounds, been struggling with ED for like 30 years and have yet to find a doctor that takes me seriously, listens and tries to help me with it. When I try sports, I usually go for muscle building exercises , because at this point nearly everything cardio hurts like hell and more muscle mass burns more calories in the end. But since I'm doing the "wrong" excersises for their expectations, it obviously must mean I'm not serious about losing weight. Most days just giving up feels like the more freeing option at this point.

I wish I had a doctor like you I'm in this situation I'm 300 lb and I'm almost 60 I have a condition that they're calling central pain syndrome but I also have paraneoplastic syndrome antibodies it's a rare condition most actors have never heard of it. Basically my immune system is attacking my central nervous system Rogue antibodies are sent out to kill cancer and mistakenly attack nerves that is a very simplistic breakdown of what it is but para is I believe next to near or something like that in Latin neoplasm is obviously a neoplasm a cancer so paranioplastic syndrom. My life is miserable I'm scared I'm going to die soon because I can't move around well enough to burn calories because of the pain I'm in I've resorted to sleeping most of the time and that's just going to bring it on faster I was a bodybuilder I was incredibly fit for most of my adult life so I'm almost scared that it's going to prolong my life at the same time that I don't want to die I can't live like this anymore

i’m so glad you touched on the whole life factors- it’s really terrible that for cases like this, these people are just immediately written off as lazy or out of control when they’re suffering with really serious mental, emotional, and spiritual health issues. food addiction is a real thing, and so many people turn to it for comfort when they’re hurting, it’s just so much harder to track because we need to eat to live!

mike said to not overdo exercising and i agree but unfortunately at my school, we do a ton of exercising, and its like not small exercising or even a 30 second break, like we do exercise with no break until we're done- at one point i felt like passing out as i was walking to change into my normal uniform (we change into gym clothes for PE, then change again into our uniforms at the end of PE) the only "break" we get is if we are running, we wait for the rest of them to go although we are in groups so it will take around 15 secs for them to run and come back which isnt enough time for most of us to catch our breath ive never been athletic and while we did do PE during virtual school, now its way worse- i cant even drink water until after PE is over, and we have no excuses to not work out unless you are injured and ACTUALLY cant work out, like a broken bone or spraining your ankle, or a medical issue, however if you have a medical issue like asthma, you still have to work out, its just the exercise is much lighter

Great job for teaching me About fatness Even Though I don't have fatness now I could have it later in life so I have to be care of what I do what I eat Though there is A Expert speaking I should Listen to him And show that I can- Like when I get fat (Which I won't because I will go on a limited diet) I will Try to go do a doctor and watch dr. mikes video and learn from because I'm not a professional. In the video Dr. Mike he didn't look like "Ew Your disgusting" Or "That's Disgusting" Or " Your are Fat and disgusting no wonder you don't go out or have any friends" HE said "Maybe you can Try to Think of your goal" Most youtubers will say mean things until they see the end results But doctor mike Helped him until the end I think he was thinking If this was me What would I do? You know! Thank You, Dr. Mike

I wish there were good Doctors like you in my town. I truly believe I am on my way out, and every doctor I have been to ignores me. Some of the problems I have, I have had before I became fat, but in order for Doctors to listen to me I lost over 100 lbs. I was 400 and now I am 200 something. I’m still losing weight too. My doctor acted like I didn’t do anything. I’m scared, but there’s really nothing I can do except pass away. I guess there are too many people on this planet for my local doctors to care.

I am not proud of that guy. Why would anyone be? He can be proud of himself, maybe his parents. I salute everyone, man or woman, girl and boy, who stay healthy all of their life. No thanks to this false "proud of this guy". For what? For f ing up so hard and then needing the fear of DEATH to get his act together? Really? No thanks. I am proud of all of you who didnt give in who have the discipline and will to go do your sport and work and have a family and watch what you are eating. We call it LEADING by example.

he's an example that you can f up and fix it. you don't have to be rude about it.

alternatively they could call the show living large instead? maybe its less degrading and makes it sound kinda positive in some ways? since 'living large' can be used as an expression to describe living in a way thats exciting or powerful, idunno, sounds less horrible then family by the ton in my opinion
