Jean-Gilles' weight-loss program: Milkshakes, soup, gastric band surgery
But Jean-Gilles is feeling good about the guy he sees in the mirror.
After hitting 388 pounds, he's shed 30 thanks to a diet of protein milkshakes and soup following the gastric band surgery limiting the food his stomach will hold.
Jean-Gilles was stepping out at practice Wednesday for select veterans and rookies.
The next step for Jean-Gilles, 26, is to regain his strength as he's been unable to workout for fear he will rip open the gastric band. Now, that's an ugly image for any 358-pounder.
"I'm feeling good," Jean-Gilles said. "I'm bouncing around out there. The coaches like what they see."
So does Big Max.
