Harrison tells TMZ that he got lap band surgery in February after his doctor diagnosed him as prediabetic. And the results have been staggering – about 115 pounds lost in the last five months.

He says that in addition to the lap band, he works out five days a week with a trainer and takes Krav Maga fighting classes.
