As Rainer Calmond now reveals, he lost 90 kilograms due to the advice of his former teammate Uli Hoeness.
It’s hard to recognize Rainer Callmond: since January 2020, the legend of the Bundesliga manager has effectively halved! Instead of 180 kilograms, he now weighs only 90 kilograms. The impetus for his weight-loss plan was a statement from former teammate Uli Hoeness, as he now reveals in ZEIT. After the visit, Hoeneß is said to have said to Calmond “Cali, what about your Plauze, don’t you want to do something?” Said Callmond.
Hoeneß is said to have recommended a specialist for Kalmond, who was visited by the former Bundesliga manager. This should have advised him to have a gastric bypass. Finally, Callie decided to undergo gastric bypass operation in January 2020. He admits that he had a lot of respect for her: “I was probably a little afraid of dying.”
But everything went fine. Since the operation, Calmond has only been able to eat half, he says – and also lose half his body weight as a result. “I live healthy and I move a lot, my values are the highest. Of course, I still love delicious food,” says the former Leverkusen maker, who now lives in Saarlouis.
