His typical breakfast was composed of 32 link sausages, a pound of bacon, a dozen eggs, a loaf of bread with grape jelly and a pot of coffee. 

4) Carol Yager – 544 kgs

One of the most obese women ever recorded, Carol was as much as 5-feet wide.  Her room’s door was custom-built so she wouldn’t get stuck, and her room’s window had to be taken down to retrieve her dead body.

Popularly known as the man who suffered from obesity to one of the worst extents known in recorded history, Manuel reached close to 600 kgs  and was immobile for as long as 10 years. Even after losing a massive 300 kgs, the man died of liver and heart failure while weighing over 350 kgs.

The fattest man in recent human history, Shaari is still only in his late teens.

It was done by taking the doors off his room, extracting him out of his house by a forklift machine and, ultimately, transporting him to the hospital via helicopters.
