Amber Rushdie came to the public eye for My 600lb Life when she weighed around 660lbs and her life was in danger. Fortunately, she was able to lose weight and become healthier.
I think everyone knows that healthy eating is difficult to sustain. Healthy cooking can take a long time and is very expensive compared to fast food. However, we should be aware that fast food is definitely harmful to the body if eaten regularly.
There are many people with great stories that show us that it is possible to change our lifestyle to reach our ideal weight and be as healthy as possible. An example of this is Amber Rashidi, who weighed more than 660 pounds 5 years ago and her life was in real danger. Fortunately, she was able to find the motivation and ambition to exercise and eat healthy.
Amber has struggled with weight issues ever since and at just five years old she already weighed 160 pounds. As a teenager, her problems worsened because Amber was afraid and found “comfort” in food. She ate sweets and copious amounts of food every day, and by the time she was only 16, she couldn’t move and needed a wheelchair. Then, at the age of 23, daily activities became impossible for Amber.
Amber said she was trying to lose weight, but even though she didn’t want to eat anymore, she couldn’t stop. She didn’t think she could escape, especially since doctors told her she wouldn’t live past thirty. Fortunately, Ashley realized it was time for a change before it was too late.
Amber chose My 600lb Life but she had to fly which was very difficult for her as she didn’t fit in the aircraft class. That’s how I met Dr Nowzaradan who would change her life.
Amber had to undergo gastric bypass, but that will only happen after she loses weight. She and her family decided to move to Houston so they wouldn’t have to fly, and Amber’s journey to a new life began.
She started eating healthy foods such as chicken and vegetables, and also went to the gym, but said it was too hard for her to go back.
After 3 months of hard work, Dr. Nowzaradan performs an orange operation. Amber’s gastric bypass surgery was a success and now Amber’s stomach is like a baseball game.
After 3 months of hard work, Dr. Nowzaradan managed to perform surgery on Amber. The bypass surgery for Amber’s stomach was a success and now Amber’s stomach was like a baseball.
After the surgery, Amber started to have anxiety again so she decided to go to a psychologist to help her. Amber was unstoppable! She really wanted to change!
In one year Amber managed to lose 267 lbs and was no longer dependent on a wheelchair and anyone else to get around. Amber stayed to live in Houston with her boyfriend, Rowdy. Amber said she was very happy to be in control of her life.
Dr. Nowzaradan went on to perform surgery to remove her excess skin. Now Amber looks great and is very happy.
