Lavell Crawford Wants To See His Kid’s Future
Lavell Crawford loves nothing more than seeing his child grow up and make a profitable future. But, back then [before his weight loss surgery], he was afraid that due to his overweight, he might die soon and not see his kids making big in life. Well, almost 2.8 million people die every year due to obesity or being overweight, as per WHO.
The comedian, thus, made a very bold decision of going through a gastric bypass sleeve surgery in 2016.
In a YouTube video of March 27, 2017, where DJ Vlad interviewed him, Crawford talked about different topics, including his weight loss journey. He shared that he was not that much active and used to run out of wind if he walked three steps.
He even stated that he weighted 215.46 Kgs (475 lbs) at the time of surgery—he ate sugar-free foods and did dieting for three months to lose about 75 lbs weight after deciding to do surgery.
Now that the whole weight loss surgery process is done and the very loved Huell Babineaux of Better Call Saul has lost about 90.72 kgs (200 lbs), Crawford is very confident that his wish to see his kid grow up will be fulfilled.
