Bob Saget's weight gain is the curiosity among Full House fans following his tragic death. Learn how he gained weight, in addition to his health issues and drugs, if any.
Bob Saget, the renowned Full House actor, had gained so much weight that friends and experts worried about his health.
Bob Saget's Weight Gain: Did He Have Health Problems?
The formerly slender celebrity, Bob Saget, who was appearing in Netflix's revival Fuller House, underwent weight gain, and back in 2017 insiders said he was weighing in at 267 pounds at the time. That's a significant 77-pound weight increase for the 6-foot-4 TV dad!
One astounded friend, who recalled Bob, now 60, being overweight as a child, said:
Bob's really ballooned.
Dr. Stuart Fischer, the writer of The Park Avenue Diet and nutrition specialist, said that the comedian's excess weight is threatening to his well-being.
Dr. Fischer, who has not treated Bob, stated:
Bob Saget is unrecognizable in his current unhealthy state. The illnesses due to obesity are no joke, so it's time to tighten the belt.
Bob described himself as a brash, obese 22-year-old, speaking in a 1990 interview.
Then I had a gangrenous appendix taken out, almost died, and I got over being cocky or overweight.
Previously, the divorced father of three adult daughters let himself go. In 2005, Radar featured the foul-mouthed comic with a complete set of man boobs and a roly-poly belly!
Bob, who was presenting America's Funniest Home Videos at the time, was photographed on a Hawaiian beach flaunting his unattractive belly rolls while wearing granny glasses.
The insider admitted,
Bob's weight has yo-yo'ed in the past. But as his age heads north of 60 now it gets harder and harder for the man best known as genial dad Danny Tanner to keep the pounds off.
The source added that it doesn't help that he stands, or even sits, next to his Fuller House cast member John Stamos, who's always stayed fit as a fiddle.
Bob Saget passed away on 9th January 2021.
