LOST star Jorge Garcia’s friends and family are terrified he’s headed for an early grave unless he loses weight ASAP.
“We’re talking Type 2 diabetes or, worse, a heart attack,” said a friend of the 6-foot-1 actor, who’s now pushing 400 pounds.
“No one wants to see that happen to him. Jorge is one of the nicest, gentlest souls you’d ever want to meet, but he just can’t keep the pounds off.”
Jorge did manage to drop 30 pounds when he first joined the “Lost” cast in 2004.
But over the past decade, he put the pounds back on – and then some – even though he claims to have been a vegan for the last three years!
The 40-year-old actor is now back on TV, guest starring for the second time on “Hawaii Five-0” opposite former “Lost” co-star Daniel Dae Kim.
“If he wants to live and continue to act, Jorge may have to get gastric bypass surgery,” the source added.
“That could be his only hope.”
