Chris McDonnell, a 31 year old North London man, has blamed his failed gastric-band surgery on the little known website olilolo.com.
Originally weighing 200kg, the heavily obese Mr McDonnell was given the tax-payer funded surgery to reduce his excessive eating and hopefully save his life, before it was too late.
Eating 15,000 calories a day, or six times the recommended limit, eating was part of his life.
Finally after an uncomfortable plane ride which nearly resulted in him being unable to fit in his seat, Chris knew something had to be done. The embarrassment and worry has become too much.
A trip to the doctor and McDonnell was booked in for gastric-band surgery – all paid for by the British NHS.
At first it was a success and over two years he lost more than half his body weight, dropping to a healthy 95kg. This was followed by surgery to remove the loose flaps of skin was performed and again the NHS footed the bill.
By this stage £30,000 had been laid out for Chris McDonnell’s health, but it was worth it for the new body he had and the reduced strain he would be on public hospitals and transport in the future.
Life was on the up for Chris until one fateful day he stumbled across a small disused laneway of the internet, and onto olilolo.com – a website which ‘boasts’ about 50 hits per day.
It only took a few clicks before he was drawn to olilolo’s dabblings with food, especially pies of the blended variety. There was instant interest. The seed was planted.
Before he knew it Chris was blending all his favourite junk food so it could slide past the gastric band with no discomfort.
A 12 month blended gorge-fest has Chris now breaking the scales at 140kg.
Without the introduction to the abhorrent world of blended slurries, Chris would still have his life on track.
A final decision on whether Chris, or the NHS who funded his, ultimately failed, surgeries will pursue olilolo.com for damages.
When it was pointed out that what he’d said was a double negative and that it seemed all olilolo employees were crammed in their office kitchen, cheering as things, despicable things, were thrown into an industrial sized blender, before feasting on the gooing result; our interview was quickly over.
