Why did Susan Lose Weight?
There were multiple reasons for Susan to undergo the weight loss procedure. She had been struggling with obesity since her childhood.
Boyle was even bullied for her being overweight. She was struggling with all these problems for years. However, the real reason behind her sudden weight loss was quite different.
During one of her medical checkups, Susan was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 2012. The doctors told her that she should consider losing weight immediately. Diabetes was slowing Susan down. It prevents the cells from converting into usable energy.
Diabetes patients suffer from hunger, depression, lethargy, and high blood pressure. After hearing this from the doctor, Boyle embarked on the weight loss journey and ended up losing 50 lbs. After knowing this, probably the next question in your mind is:

Although she was restrained from every kind of sugar consumption, there are some commodities through which she was allowed to consume sugar. Namely, fruits and fruit juices, vegetables, and dark brown sugar.
