Rising star EJ Johnson revealed in the season finale of “Rich Kids of Beverly Hills” that he planned to have weight loss surgery to help him slim down his frame. Now it’s been confirmed that Johnson has already had the procedure and is on his massive weight loss transformation.
According to E! News, a source confirmed that Johnson received the gastric sleeve surgery back in August, shortly after filming his announcement about his surgery plans.
“A lot of people think it’s the easy way out, but it’s not. It’s a step in the right direction, just a big push.” He went on to say, “I feel very mature, kind of in the right place for it and I’m very ready to look cute. The surgery is a huge deal for me and it will certainly be a positive change,” Johnson explained in the season finale.
According to a health information outlet, Johnson’s weight loss journey doesn’t just end with the surgery. He’ll have to undergo a major lifestyle change as well in order to shed the unwanted pounds.
“Restrictive operations like gastric sleeve surgery make the stomach smaller and help people lose weight. With a smaller stomach, you will feel full a lot quicker than you are used to. This means that you will need to make big lifelong changes in how you eat —including smaller portion sizes and different foods — in order to lose weight,” said the outlet.
We wish Johnson luck on his weight loss goals and we hope he not only slims down but also learns to live a healthier lifestyle. – nicholas robinson
