My 600-lb Life star Justin Assanti made his first appearance on the popular show with his brother Steven. His brother overshadowed most of the show due to his outrageous behavior. But Justin eventually found his voice. Lately, fans of the show are wondering how Justin did with his weight loss journey. Did he step out of his brother’s shadow and find his own voice? Or did he revert back to his old poor eating habits? Let’s take a look!

How it all started

When we first met Justin, he opened up to viewers about his past. He stated that he grew up with his older brother Steven who wasn’t always nice to him. On top of that, Justin was on the receiving end of his brother’s bullying for most of his life. Justin stated that when he was younger, his mother loved to drink, straining the relationship between his mom and dad. The household was toxic due to the alcoholism and Justin told viewers that he was “faced a lot of abuse.”  He turned to food for the comfort and affection he was not getting from his parents and definitely wasn’t getting from his brother.

Justin Assanti needed help

At first, Justin didn’t seem to really want Dr. Now’s help. He even gained 40 pounds before one of his appointments. However, he eventually buckled down and was able to get back on track. He lost enough weight to prove to Dr. Now that he is serious about getting healthy so Dr. Now approved Justin for weight loss surgery. This helped Justin lose a good amount of weight. The last report was that he lost well over 200 pounds! 

How is Justin Assanti now?

Justin seems to be doing well. He and his business are thriving. In November 2020, he was able to purchase a car, which he says is perfect for his shop and has quite a lot of space for him. Justin’s relationship has always been strained with his brother, so after returning home from surgery he said he would never speak to Steven again. It seems that Justin has made good on that threat and hasn’t spoken to his abusive brother. According to an article by Distractify, during a since-deleted AMA session, Justin revealed he and Steven no longer speak, sharing, “He doesn’t bother us since he got married.” Ultimately this a positive thing for Justin as his father, who was on the receiving end of Steven’s abuse.

  1. OK, so there is so much wrong with these people I will try to make it simple. Justin and Steven are rude fat brats that his dad has allowed them to develop into. He buys a dog to pacify Justin who is about forty, acts like he is two. Poor dog. The father bribes the guy? really? he should have stopped that behavior when he had the chance. I remember one episode where Dr. Now was speaking to Justin who was watching him thru his cell phone. He needed an attitude adjustment what kind I cannot put on here. Steven is a train wreck as well, it’s all the Dad’s fault he kisses their big behinds constantly. Here’s an idea, the next time he wants a pizza resorting to threats if he does not get his selfish way, say do what you have to. Because once you call their bluff the power is over. The dad is out of it there is no hope for these people, they need Jesus barring that happening nothing will change. They will die from their diesase, the world will keep turning. tlo
