Heavy Duty

February 15, 2012

The title of the World’s Heaviest Man has now been passed to Londoner Keith Martin.

Martin takes the title from Manuel Uribe who is reported to have lost 830 pounds from his previously 1260 pound frame.

Martin, who currently weighs 812 pounds, is bedridden and requires 18 people to care for him. Eight ambulance workers are needed to hoist him into a special reinforced vehicle to transport him to the hospital for frequent check ups.

Others visit him regularly to help keep him clean and fed, and to monitor his heart which is under great strain due to his size.

Mr. Martin is 5’9’’ tall and has a 6-foot waistline girth.

According to Weekly World News, Mr. Martin has been known to consume an average of 20,000 calories per day!

A typical day of eating might include:

Breakfast: 8 hotdogs and 4 slices of bread, with coffee and sugar.

Lunch: More sweetened coffee with cakes, a packet of cookies and a selection of chocolate bars.

Dinner: 2 whole roast dinners or 16 sausages, a family sized bag of French fries, and more coffee with sugar.

His lifestyle is currently taking a toll on more than his health. The estimated cost of caring for Mr. Martin is $320,000 per year all paid for by the British government.


Big Deal

July 7, 2011

Donna Simpson, the world’s heaviest woman ever to give birth is now trying to gain weight in order to claim the Guinness Book of World Record’s title of “most obese woman“.

Currently weighing in at 700 pounds, the single mother of two is working towards her goal weight of 1008 pounds!

Her 4 year old daughter, who was delivered by a high risk c-section performed by a team of 30 doctors, is helping her sustain a 15,000 calorie per day diet.

A typical menu for Simpson might contain “4 burgers and fries, a loaf of bread with peanut butter and jam, 4 servings of meatloaf and mashed potatoes, a large pizza, an entire chocolate cake with icecream and whipped cream,  a dozen cupcakes, 2 cheesecakes and several fizzy drinks.“

She limits her movement as much as possible, and avoids running after her daughter to prevent unneccessary calorie burn.

She cites that many men find large women very desirable, and has a members only website which features photos of herself.

While beauty may be in the eye of the beholder, it is irresponsible for a parent of young children to live in such an unhealthy manner.

We hope that Ms. Simpson can follow in the footsteps of Manuel Uribe, the heaviest man in the world, and begin to lead a healthier lifestyle.
