Did My 600 lb Life save their lives by helping them lose weight?

Steven and Justin’s episode of My 600 lb Life is shocking because of Steven’s attitude.  While they are in a RV on the way to Houston to meet Dr. Now, Steven calls his father countless times, telling him he better get him some food, “or else!” His dad always gives in, enabling Steven’s actions.


Steven and Justin reveal that they were abused when they were younger.  Their father left their mother because she was an alcoholic.  Their mother’s boyfriend used to beat Steven and Justin.  Steven explains that he found comfort in food.  Their mother would leave food out for them while she was gone.  It’s important to feed your children but it’s also important to monitor how much they eat.
