Top 5 Heaviest People in the World
Overweight is a serious health problem which can cause heart problems, skin problems, inability to move and serious dependence on other people. Not always overweight people eat too much; sometimes a serious illness can cause this problem. Their lives are tougher than most of us can imagine. Some of them are trying to keep up with the rest of the world and live normal lives.
#1. Paul Mason
He is a 50-year-old man from England who was once considered the world’s fattest man at 444 kilograms. He got a bypass surgery and lost around 250 kilograms. He is one of those people who are eating beyond normal. He gets more than 20,000 calorie-a- day through his diet. The man isn’t completely unhappy with his love for food, but he also blames Britain’s national health service for not allowing him to see an eating disorder specialist when he was just over 180 kilograms.
#2. Donna Simpson
This American woman showed a desire to become one of the world’s heaviest women back in 2008. She wished gain weight of 450 kg. Two years later, Simpson weighed 273 kg, which meant she lost some weight from her original 290 kg in 2008. During the process, Simpson maintained a website where fans paid to watch her eat. In 2010, she won the Guinness World Records for the “Heaviest woman to give birth.” In August 2011, Simpson decided to go on a diet to reduce her weight to a target of 170 kg in order to become more self-sufficient and be able to do a better job of raising her children.
