I hate that every time I bring up LOST someone has to make that shitty joke that goes “The real mystery is how Hurley didn’t lost weight after all that time stranded in an island”.
First of all this joke has been made 98763736483 times already, please stop.
Second of all it was always clear that they had more than enough food. In season 1 they had loads of fruit and boar-meat (may not be a very diverse diet but they were definitely not hungry) and after opening the hatch they had a huge amount of Dharma-food, even chocolate and snacks. In one episode a ton of food literally fells from the sky. There’s no logical reason for any of the survivors to lose weight.
But imagine for a moment these fan’s complains are valid and the survivors didn’t have all this food, then why is the focus only on Hurley? If the camp were short on food then everybody would lose weigh. But the audience didn’t want Jack or the rest of the hot people to lose weight for “realism”, no, the only “continuity error” for them was Hurley. Because it has never been about realism (C'mon from all the illogical things in LOST the problem you see is an overweight guy?) the issue is these people couldn’t bear that there was a TV show with a fat latino as a main character.
I’m so happy Jorge Garcia never cared about this criticism. One of the heroes in LOST is fat and that doesn’t make him any less great. Deal with it.
