WATCH: Graham Elliot Defends Weight Loss Surgery on MSNBC
Graham Elliot joined anchor Tameron Hall on her new MSNBC hour News Nation to defend his decision to lose 150 pounds with the help of gastric lap band surgery, instead of opting to lose weight “naturally.” Said Graham of critics:
“You can keep saying, ‘Well, you’ve got to do it the real, old-fashioned way. You’ve got to do it on your own. The surgery is the easy way out.’ But again, when you get to 400 pounds and you have a family to look after, you realize, that’s all ego. You can try to do it on your own, [but] if you don’t get the results, you’ve got to do whatever you’ve got to do.”
