Not to make light of another person's problems, but this is worth noting:

Quote:
ROME (Reuters) - A Mexican man who at 550 kg (1,200 lb) is possibly the heaviest person in the world hopes to travel to Italy for a life-saving operation to shed weight.

Manuel Uribe, bedridden for the past five years, cannot stand on his own and will need a special flight to take him from Monterrey, Mexico to Modena, where a surgical team has offered to perform an intestinal bypass free of charge.

"I can't walk. I'm can't leave my bed," the 40-year-old Uribe, who weighs the same as five baby elephants, said in a recent telephone interview.

"I'm trying to reduce my weight a bit right now so I can be in the right condition for the operation."


A little extra motivation as I head for the gym

Wow.

Did he eat his way into obesity or does he have some sort of medical condition?

Is it even possible to eat your way into that? It has to be a thyroid issue, well, I hope it is atleast.
