Harrison lost weight several years ago. He dropped pounds because of weight loss surgery after a doctor diagnosed him with diabetes.
In 2010, his doctor put him on preventive diabetes medication. He immediately decided to have the surgery and went straight to the lap band center. At the time, the surgery was too expensive for his bank account. As Harrison wanted to avoid diabetes, he used four credit cards to pay for the surgery.
After undergoing lap band surgery, Harrison lost 50 pounds within the first six weeks. Within the first year, he dropped another 100 pounds.
Harrison, who once weighed a shocking 402 pounds, now weighs 200 pounds. After the massive transformation, he told People magazine:
” I could never go back” to weighing as much as I did. “It made me realize what I ate, how I ate and what I did to myself. It was a wow moment.”
He told Good Morning America that he never realized how bad he felt at his larger size until he lost the weight. He added:
“It’s weird to feel better at 31 than you did at 25.”
The “Pawn Stars” star has now changed his exercise and diet regimen. He only takes four to five ounces of food in his stomach. He noted:
“When you only have that much space in there, you don’t want to fill it up with crap.”
The third generation pawnshop owner boxes 12 rounds five days a week. He also does jump rope to maintain his body weight.
“When I meet fans, they are always congratulating me on the weight loss. They actually say, ‘You look just like that guy from ‘Pawn Stars,’ but you are a lot skinnier and better looking than him.'”
After getting a lot slimmer, Harrison is now determined to stay healthy.
