Tao and JJ just how severe this is Michael how was your health I don't see anything wrong with me you might start to just have simple things like headaches or stomach this is my fuel to go on for the day we have our work cut out for us so can we pull you away from that plate and see what's going on in your home kitchen could I boxes if Michael can eat 30 wings in a restaurant it's important for JJ and I to see what he is eating at home steak bacon Michael is eating 5 pounds of meat every day bacon and hotdogs and steak this could feed a small army show me what a typical meal would be so this would be dinner Wow I mean all of this to an ounce pounds of meat right here yeah I was afraid that dr. Dow and J Joe were gonna take away all my meat who does the cooking here she wants to cook for me but I need to control how its prepared a lot of control there's a lot of control Mikey if I even try to cook for him he's hovering I know relationships and I know that if this continues to be the thing that's always there for you this may not always be there this the last straw for you yeah 24-year old Michael is addicted to means his obsession is putting his relationship with his girlfriend in serious jeopardy that's the last straw for you yeah in order for Michael to grasp the full extent of his meat obsession JJ and dr. Daoud taken to a butcher shop for shock therapy because Michael doesn't think he has problem we needed shock therapy be something very visual come with me Michael is totally under estimating his problem wait till he sees what we have in store for him in the meat locker that is one month worth of your meat consumption a hundred and fifty pounds of meat Wow it's easy to deny what we do on a daily basis but when you see the amount of foods you eat in one month it's much harder to deny it looks good you think that's good there are a whole bunch of pieces of meat in there that I really wanted I'd put on a barbecue right now four to five pounds of meat a day with nothing else it's frightening our body can't handle that amount of protein and it's loaded with saturated fats which can lead to heart disease and stroke Michael is slowly killing himself now we wanted to Michael pick up that meat and put it all through the grinder 150 pounds of meat that you eat in one month and grind it so they will understand the sheer volume of what you're eating I didn't want to grind it I wanted to cook it right then their dinner right here when he came out of the end of the grinder didn't look too good to me it's cold and they very good out of that we're not said salad could be in your future when that meat was coming out of the grinder it sounded like juicy dripping blood it was splattering it smelled bad Michael what's it like to see a month worth of your meat consumption and all ground up in those backs like that doesn't look too appetizing anymore this is a huge problem do you want to do something about it yes all right okay we can work with this first thing we need to do send you out for some tests because we need to see how much damage your habits done to you Michael has basic the reality he can't be in denial any longer shock therapy helped Michael to realize how this eating meat is affecting his health but I also needed him to realize how it's affecting his relationship there's one big glaring issue and that's your diet Michael you see how much it's not only affecting you but also Jenna yeah she lets me know every single day and you know I kind of brush it off and not really care I guess I just want to eat what I want to eat when you brush me off it just makes me feel like it's not a priority to you this is a pretty serious thing that is weighing on this relationship there's so much resentment if Michael and Jenna don't know how to communicate I don't know if this relationship has a chance to last when I miss about us is the connection that we used to have meat is just getting in the way because we're not on the same page and we're not agreeing about anything and you're not willing to make a change Michael's actions are telling me that he doesn't care about our future you want to safely bring children into this world knowing that that is the way he's eating and you're probably gonna be a widow I wouldn't want to have kids with this person just cuz I know what I went through sorry about five years ago my dad passed away it was a very sudden heart attack and I'm worried that the same thing might happen with Michael I wouldn't want to have to go through that again if you can prevent it right did you know that Michael after talking and everything it's you know definitely more and more things are coming out and yeah it definitely opens my eyes up to a lot more problems that me and John have you know now I have to work on them are you feeling now a little bit more hopeful I think will regain the control of our relationship through your eating habits if this behavior doesn't change Jenna's gonna be out of this relationship we got our work cut out for us let's get started I have a slight problem Michaels five pound a day meat habit is straining his relationship with his girlfriend Jenna what I miss about us is the connection that we used to have Michaels dependence on meat may also be causing him severe health problems I'm going to introduce him to heart surgeon dr. Michael Savage because Michael needs a rude awakening so Michael we sent you up for some labs yes I have the results no no I am real nervous about seeing the test results I would rather just not know so tell me some of the symptoms that you have real bad migraine headaches lower stomach pain heartburn your body is trying to tell you something you're not getting away with your lifestyle you are eating damaged fats cooked at high heats saturated fats the type of fat that creates inflammation your body leading you to coronary artery disease which leads to heart attacks we see this a AEP a ratio which tells you the risk of heart disease you right here you're at high risk you're 24 with high risk of heart disease because of what you put on your fork the way he's living and eating is causing self-destruction it's just scary to think about disclose up now I wanted dr. Savage to show Michael a diseased heart because that's the road he's going down that's a normal-sized heart now put that down next to this heart look at the size difference of that heart this is called dilated cardiomyopathy this is a disease that happens when somebody has a diet that's high in red meat high cholesterol high fats the heart is pushing against all the your arteries that are hardened and full of cholesterol plaques causes everything to get so thick that the blood can't get through the heart and it causes heart failure it's like one massive traffic jam seen the hearts I got real freaked out and real scared the illusion is that people think they can have the diet that they have when they're young and have no consequence for it so basically you are on Rails to die and you're most likely gonna die at a younger age than most people would Johnny you okay it's just very emotional for me to see it does this push you over the edge to make the change yeah absolutely you're going to eat vegetables look at me ollie vegetables I don't want to end up like one of those Bobby parts on the lab table with Michael vowing to try vegetables JJ and dr. Dow are now going to hold him to that promise we're gonna take Michael to a Mongolian barbecue it's a perfect place for grated exposure-therapy great exposure therapy means starting with what you like all that meat that you love and adding vegetable by vegetable at a time start with one vegetable oh I'm really dreading this experience so grab a bowl you have enough meat leave some space for the vegetables when jr. told me to put a vegetable in my bowl because freaking out let me get my magnifying glass out to see that carrot a little more here hey thank you thank you how does that look to you still a little weirded out vegetables and stuff just didn't appeal to me there goes nothing the initial bite what the carrots was pretty hard I didn't like the crunch it's so strange but was a bad so I count this as a win the next step is adding another vegetable I don't know which one is better than the other if you like sweet those red peppers a little bit sweeter oh do that it's like he's an alien who's from another planet this guy has never had a pepper he has no idea when they taste like one two as I'm raising the fork to my mouth I'm thinking please let this be good it's not bad take it that bowl away again what am I gonna do next hold it hold it one of the most amazing superfoods out there's broccoli I only hear or stories about broccoli it kind of looks like a tiny treat we wouldn't want to eat a treat that's interesting not bad yes since this is your first well-balanced meal you've had in your life would you actually eat this one Michael is teaching himself that he can do this and there's a lot riding on it the experts are now going to be leaving Michael alone for four days we have given Michael all the tools to succeed but he needs to choose to use them if he doesn't his life could fall apart Michael's meat dependency has taken precedence over his health and relationship now the experts have left Michael on his own for four days to work on his controlling issues with Jenna and brought in his food ballot screen I was a little apprehensive about green beans Jenna starts cooking fish for Michael and he starts hovering wait wait wouldn't you season it as usual he's standing over me controlling what I'm doing okay that's gonna be your piece okay I'm taking this away it's just obnoxious put the fondant so that when you put them in there what's that gonna do to it it was definitely a huge stretch the try and green beans I was really nervous about how they were gonna taste but I had to give it a go I didn't like the green beans really at all don't like it I don't know I can't guarantee that I'll love everything but I have to take those little steps first you can try anything see you guys to see you come in come in by the end of the week the experts return to check on Michael's progress so do you have good news for us I fish dried green beans with the fish so 2 & 1 Michael din corporated a wider variety of healthier foods into his diet is a life altering decision from Michael are you proud of yourself let's start I'm very proud of myself and we had more homework I said do not hover then the problem showed up I had no knowledge of that we did not share the homework I was really pissed off when Michael didn't tell me about his other homework assignment he's sitting there just dumping on the seasoning himself I needed to be cooked by way go stand right here I'll do the rest there's clearly something going on and we are not there yet Jenna you come with me let's go outside and relieve Michael J again so you're tired I am tired you don't want to do this anymore no I don't I feel like his babysitter not his girlfriend you know no one wants to feel like that if he doesn't grow up and just change then I'm out of here because I'm not gonna do this anymore there are a lot of things we can control in this life but there are a lot of things that we have to accept and Michael making that decision to really treat his addiction or not is ultimately up to him I can only do so much so to change a person you can't change him I want to give you a little insight Genesis frustrated really she's telling you what she wants she wants to cook for you she wants to take care of you and she wants you to take care of yourself she doesn't want to be your mom there's nothing romantic what about dating your mom no what is the thing that she says she wants you to do most of all need a salad okay you were listening doctor down I have created a final test for you but it's also a huge opportunity to hit it out of the park yeah I have packed a picnic basket full of choices you are going to put together your own picnic basket and then you will invite Jenna on a romantic picnic I don't want to lose Jenna over some stupid food so I need to change my eating habits this picnic really represents Michael's last chance is he going to change or is this relationship going to be over he picked everything in that basket Michaels never take me on a picnic before so I was really excited to see what it holds just so excited we've got this little kind of salad here I just couldn't wait to see if Michael doctors they follow through and trying to sell it all right I wouldn't go for it it's okay I was just overcome with so much emotion when I saw Michael eating that salad this is a huge thing that we're overcoming together like I always told Jin our entire life I'd never eat a salad so when I took that first bite I knew that was the first step in the right direction you have exceeded our expectations and got me to this point which I never thought I'd ever be at in a million years he did it before we met Michael he lived on meat he was controlling and really didn't listen to his girlfriend now not only is Michael eating better he's also communicating better and that's gonna set him in Jenna up for a long healthy relationship thank you so much I appreciate everything I'm definitely confident that this is the new Michael that I could see spending the rest of my life with let's dig in I definitely feel like I'm a different guy now going out of my box eating vegetables it's just gonna make mine in China's relationship that much better you you

  1. I love how the goober that’s addicted to having sausage stuffed in his mouth still somehow ends up with a hot girl.

  2. Michael; i was afraid they were gonna take away all my πŸ– meat
    Me; are you a cat or what?!
    *have you ever droped a bone or peice of food on the floor and your pet knows you'll take it back and you know it too, and they get scared *

  3. Michael: Eats meat.
    Girlfriend: Cries in fear and horror.

    Dumbasses don't realize there is protein and healthy stuff in meat. As long as it's cooked all the way. I don't think that she realizes that a man that eats shitloads of meat is normal for a man.

  4. Looks like natural selection to me and in the context of overpopulation, I suggest you let it run its course.

  5. He probably can’t last like a little bit if he has to go vegan
    (Vegans watching this) throws up
    Him: THIS IS MY LIFE

  6. Dude keeps in eating meat , even though he is traumatizing his girlfriend by reminding her about her father dying from a heart attack.

  10. Dude! This man does not care about his girlfriend! She is scared to lose him, but he does not care! I feel bad and disgusted!

  11. If he’s willing to try new foods he just wants to cook it his way she should let him cook! He’s trying to compromise.
