Its common for actors to be reminiscent of the work they are most known for. The same could be said for Jorge Garcia, beloved actor of the popular TV series “Lost”. But is he just on the run down the memory lane or is there a meaning behind his actual "jog."
The hit TV series actor was spotted taking a vacation in Hawaii where they shot the entire tv show for six whole years. The actor posted multiple images and videos on social media reminiscing about his entire time spent there.Joe Garcia arrived in Hawaii after he decided to take a vacation.
The actor took a Nostalgic trip around the Island, posting pictures of various set pieces as well as locations where memorable events of "Lost" took place. Jorge even went as far as to start up his old blog "Dispatches from the Island" in memory of his trip as well as his new job.
But the real question is, Was Jorge just being nostalgic about his old work or did he have an ulterior motive behind his trip?
What Jorge Garcia has achieved in his acting career, Fame and Obesity?
Jorge Garcia is a well known for his work in the TV series “Lost” as well as “Alcatraz.” The 43-year-old actor played a supporting role in the TV series “Lost” which would be the actor’s greatest work earning not one but two different ALMA awards for Outstanding support actor in a television series both 2006 and 2008.
The skilled humorist’s character wasn't even originally in the script for Lost but was created for him after J.J. Abrams and Damod Lindelof spotted him on an episode of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.” The character went on to become the most loved character in the entire TV series appearing in 118 out of 121 episodes of the series. Needless to say, Jorge loved his job and was more than enthusiastic about his acting during the entirety of the Show.
So it stands that he would be nostalgic about his work, visiting the stage for “Lost” on its 6TH anniversary.

But is it all?
Whether we like to admit it or not, a big issue about Jorge that has pushed back his career acting is his weight. The 40-year-old actor seems to have curves at all the wrong places, and that might be putting it a bit lightly. Jorge apparently is 400 lbs(roughly 181 Kgs) and friends, family, as well as fans, repeatedly showed concern for his gaining weight.
The actor was slightly obese even during his work of “Lost” but seems to have gained more weight which can be seen during his cast of “Alcatraz.”A friend was reported to be extremely concerned about his weight and even was reported saying
We’re talking about type 2 Diabetes, or worse a heart attack, Jorge is one of the nicest, gentlest souls you’d ever meet but he just cant keep the pounds off.
The actor initially lost 30 pounds before he grabbed his role as Hurley but was asked to keep his weight maintained during his work for his character’s authenticity. The actor later on in 2012 posted a blog where he declared that he was going Vegan and introduced his new favorite diet of “Nooch” another term for Nutritional Yeast. But that didn't seem to work as the actor is still mostly obese.

The actor just seems unable to control his diet and has even gone on to post multiple reviews about foods on his blog. So maybe he has been working in older ways of losing weight?

Considering this, his multiple trips and his videos were he goes around Hawaii, taking pictures and videos on foot adds up. Maybe this is just a way for Jorge to lose weight. Enjoying walking around while trying out more vegan and nutritious food around the world seems like a good idea on paper to lose weight, but let's hope it works for Jorge as his weight issues could hamper not only his career but what remains of his living as well.
Jorge Garcia's Dating Issues, Bad match with the girlfriend?
As for his dating history, Jorge dated novelist Bethany Leigh Shady since 2007 but news about their relationship is locked up, and it seems Jorge and his girlfriend liked to keep their love life away from the prying eyes of the media. Sources and rumors have suggested that they broke up a while ago back in 2013, but there's no confirmed news about their relationship.
But from the lack of content about each other in both the parties social medias, we can assume that there's a fissure in their relationship right now but hopefully its just baseless rumors.
The actor worth $5 million net worth had a great relationship with Bethany, posting multiple images of each other as well as videos on his blogs as well as Instagram but a significant amount of people commented on how they didn't fit together including this Dailymail article which called out on their irregular size matchup.
Maybe the weight issues created some barriers in their relationship? We can only speculate and so far, we're not even sure whats with their relationship but so far the actor seems to be working hard at losing his weight and hopefully he gets a handle over his eating disorder and with the help of his exquisite trips round the world, loses a lot more weight and hopefully finds a married life down the lane and we here at Liverampup are ready to cover who his beloved wife will be.
