Michael Hebranko: former heaviest man on earth down seized to 90 kg

Post by Admin on Wed 13 Mar - 7:46

Michael Hebranko (b. May 14, 1953) suffered from an extreme case of morbid obesity, known to be

among the heaviest people in the world.

After a stay at the St. Luke’s Hospital in New York, he dropped his weight from 411 kg (910 lb) to 90

kg (200 lb) and waist size from 290 cm (110 in) to 91 cm (36 in) in 19 months with the help of the

dieting and exercise coach Richard Simmons and was recorded in the Guinness Book of World Records

for the highest recorded weight loss in 1990. He lost some of this weight from surgical removal of fat.

He then toured the United States lecturing about his experiences and advocating dieting and exercise

and appeared in infomercials promoting Richard Simmons.

However, seven years later, he gained up to 453 kg (1,000 lb) and had to be repeatedly hospitalized

to the Brookhaven Rehabilitation and Health Care Center. In June 1999, Hebranko was at his peak

weight of 500 kg (1,100 lb).
