American actor and comedian Jorge Garcia became a topic of discussion (in the right way) in 2017 after he lost a massive 100 pounds in a few years. Best known as a TV actor, he is popular for appearing in TV shows like How I Met Your Mother (starring Neil Patrick Harris, Josh Radnor, Cobie Smulders), Hawaii Five-0, Lost, iSteve, and many others.
The 45 years old Garcia is a very secretive man when it comes to his love life. Here let's dig out more about his impressive weight loss and his relationship history.
Jorge Garcia is a foodie and shared that he cannot help himself when it comes to stuffing food in his mouth. In 2003, he needed to lose around 30 pounds for his role as Hugo Reyes in TV series Lost.
Even though he did lose the weight initially, he gained his weight back, getting even heavier and greater. While his friends and colleagues were worried about his weight from the very beginning, in 2014, it became a hazard when he hit his highest weight mark, i.e., 400lbs.

It became a big concern, and doctors even advised him either to lose weight or die. Specialists shared that gastric bypass, which would drastically decrease his food consumption, was the only solution for him.
However, the actor took things into his own hands and tried different methods for weight loss, which did not have much effect on his weight. Eventually, he adopted veganism and consumed an entirely plant-based diet, excluding all kinds of animal and dairy products.
This lifestyle change had a significant impact on his life and weight as he lost 100lbs in mere years. He currently weighs around 300lbs and is out of the danger.

A site reported that this was a huge achievement, and fans were very proud of him as they also wanted him to shed some pounds.
As of 2020, Garcia still follows a vegan lifestyle and has become an inspiration for many people who are struggling with their heavyweight.
As reported, Jorge Garcia lives a lowkey life. And, when it comes to his personal life, there is not much known about it as of now.
His first encounter was with a woman named Malia Hansen. The couple also made numerous appearances together in public and red carpet events. They started dating in 2004, but their relationship lasted only for two years as they broke up in 2006.

Following his split with his first publicized girlfriend Malia, he started dating his Lost co-star and novelist Bethany Leigh Shady. They began dating each other after they first met in the set of TV series Lost in 2007.
Suddenly, the duo just disappeared from the public eye, and many assumed that they had broken up while others speculated them to be living a happy married life.
