Fattest people: Sometimes people gaining weight as a result of illness. But most people have another reason – they eat too much and move a little. Obesity can make human life incredibly difficult and morally and physically. However, some people even became famous due to its weight.
Here are the top 10 fattest people in the world living:
10. Dzhambulat Khatokhov – 240 kg
The fattest man in Russia was born on September 24, 1999, and by the year 1 weighed 17 kilograms. And by the first class, the weight of Dzhambulat reached 115 kg, thanks to which his name appeared in the Guinness Book of Records. His mother says that the son inherited the heroic dimensions from his grandfather.
Dzhambulat won world fame thanks to the documentary video “The Biggest Boy in the World”, which was broadcast on many television channels around the world.
Currently, the young man’s weight reaches 240 kg, and he does not hesitate at all. On the contrary, Khatokhov builds up his body weight consciously and plans to perform in sumo wrestling competitions. He is actively involved in sports, participated in television shows and, at the invitation of journalists, visited Japan and England.
9. Donna Simpson – 290 kg
This adventurous lady with overly curvaceous forms created her own website where her fans paid to watch Donna eat in order to get even thicker. According to foreign publications, she thus earned $ 90,000 a year. In 2010, Donna received the title “The Fattest Mom in the World” and immortalized her name in the Guinness Book of Records.
However, in 2011, a woman decided to lose weight up to 170 kg in order to be more independent and to be able to fully take care of her two children.
Simpson is a proponent of the adoption of their own fullness movement and makes fun of people who “feel guilty when they overeat”.
However, at the “peak of form” Donna was far from the late Carol Jager, who weighed 544 kg with a height of 170 cm.
8. Terri Smith – 320 kg
Once upon a time, this dark-skinned American was an active woman, despite the fact that she was distinguished by her fullness from childhood. By the age of 20, she weighed 100 kg, but at the same time lived a full life, and then she got married and became a mother.
As her natural aging, Terry was constantly getting fat, and in the end, she was bedridden. The situation is complicated by the fact that a woman suffers from constant headaches and doctors suspect a brain tumor. However, there is no MRI for patients with this size.
7. Paul Mason – 445 kg
Mason’s breakfast was food for ten people and included bread, bacon, sausages and chicken eggs, and snacks consisted of 40 packs of potato chips and 20 chocolate bars per day. The National Health Service of England had to expand the doors and corridors in Mason’s house so that restaurant staff could deliver food directly to the fat man’s bed.
Mason was called the fattest man on Earth, but this did not make him happy. The Briton is tired of his appetites; he no longer wanted to consume nearly 20,000 calories daily.
In 2015, Paul Mason underwent a gastric bypass procedure. For the operating room to support the patient’s weight, the engineers had to install metal supports under the floor. To get rid of excess weight, the man was pushed by love for Rebecca Mountain. Thanks to this bright feeling, he lost 305 kg and got rid of 21 kg of excess skin. Unfortunately, the couple broke up.
6. Katrina Rayford – 454 kg
In childhood, Katrina was sexually abused and began to “seize” stress. At age 14, she had to undergo treatment in a psychiatric hospital due to problems with overeating. This resident of Florida spent most of her life in the four walls of her own house, communicating with peers only on the Web.
However, Katrina did not lose hope for a normal life and managed to lose 261 kg with the help of the gastrointestinal tract and a strict diet. She is not going to stop there and already goes to romantic dinners with boyfriends.
5. Andre Nasr – 468 kg
The fattest man in Australia in 2015 sought medical help because he could not leave his house for the past two to three years. Andre consumed 12,000 calories daily, six times the rate recommended by Australians.
The Australian became so fat that he had to take apart one of the walls of his house so that medical workers could take him to the hospital. There he joined a special treatment program.
Since then, Nasr has lost more than 170 kg and says he wants to help others overcome extreme obesity.
4. Kenneth Brumley – 468 kg
At one time, Kenneth was considered the fattest man on Earth, and the documentary Half Half Ton Dad was shot about his life. He was bedridden for four years, and the fire brigade had to break a wall in his house in order to pull the fat man out and take him to the Renaissance Hospital in Texas. There, Bramley managed to lose 76 kg in 40 days.
The weight loss procedure included restricting a man’s daily diet to about 1,200 calories per day. For comparison: Kenneth consumed about 30 thousand calories daily.
3. Mayra Rosales – 470 kg
If you look at the photo of Mayra in 2008 and now, it will be difficult to believe that this is the same person. This woman is living proof that no matter how much you weigh. The right motivation to lose weight is important.
In order to take care of her nephews, Mayra lost weight to 91 kg. Her sister, Jaime Lee, is serving a prison term for the manslaughter of his two-year-old child. Rosales initially took the blame on herself, saying that she accidentally sat on her nephew and crushed him. However, during a high-profile investigation, the truth surfaced and the real criminal was punished.
2. Juan Pedro Franco – 585 kg
In 2016, a resident of Mexico got into the Guinness Book of Records as the fattest man in the world. His weight at that moment almost reached 595 kg. In a short film shown by the BBC, Franco explains that after a car accident at the age of 17, half of his body was “broken” and he failed to fully recover. Nevertheless, the doctors did not understand why the man gained so much fat. Franco suffered from diabetes, high blood pressure and hypothyroidism.
Currently, he threw 132 kg, up to 453 kilograms. In this, a whole team of 30 professionals helps him for free. The man’s goal is very simple – to get up off the couch yourself. This motivates him to perform exercises and even undergo gastric bypass surgery.
1. Khalid bin Mohsen Shaari – 610 kg
In adolescence, a resident of Saudi Arabia weighed 610 kilograms. He just did not reach the record set by the fattest man in history – American John Minnock, with a bodyweight of 635 kg.
Khalid’s achievement, which was extremely doubtful in terms of health benefits, was recorded in the Guinness Book of Records.
In 2013, the king of Saudi Arabia ordered the young man to be hospitalized. He paid for the treatment. The young fat man was delivered to the clinic by military aircraft.
Two hundred and ninety kilograms – that’s how much the fattest man in the world weighs after all the medical manipulations. Through the efforts of doctors and Khalid himself, he managed to lose 320 kilograms. And by 2016, the heaviest person in the world gained the ability to walk.
