Here’s some interesting news: People says that Graham Elliot —Michelin-starred Chicago chef and MasterChef judge — underwent a weight-loss operation called a sleeve gastrectomy this morning. What does a sleeve gastrectomy entail? Glad you asked. It’s “an hour-long procedure where the doctor removes about 80 percent of the patient’s stomach and creates a small sleeve-shaped stomach about the size of a banana.” Also: The procedure is irreversible. People posits Elliot could drop 100 pounds in the next six months, and he tells the celebrity mag that his “biggest goal is to start running.” [People]
