World's fattest man loses 570 pounds
« on: October 17, 2013, 03:05:57 PM »
The Guinness Book of Records' fattest man has lost 570 pounds, which was half of his body weight, a report said.
[/size]Manuel Uribe, 42, of Monterrey, Mexico, lost the weight after going on a low-carbohydrate diet for two years, the Telegraph (Britain) reported Friday.
[/size]After Uribe asked for help losing the weight on national television, nutritionists and doctors from the United States and Mexico put him on a high-protein diet and workout routine.
[/size]"I'm going to throw a big party. I'm getting out of my house and going for a walk," Uribe said.
[/size]Uribe, who has been confined to his bed since 2002, accepted the help from U.S. and Mexican experts after refusing to have a gastric bypass operation suggested by Italian and Spanish medics, the report said.
[/size]Uribe is reportedly scheduled to be lifted from his home by a crane for a celebratory ride around town on a truck March 9.
