 1. Jon Brower Minnoch


Jon Brower Minnoch (1941 – 1983) of Bainbridge Island, WA; 6 ft 1 in, estimated as weighing “probably more than” 1400 lbs in 1979, at which point it took 13 people just to roll him over in bed. Minnoch, like many of the heaviest people, suffered from massive edema: his weight was augmented by at least 900 lbs of fluid at its peak. The former taxi driver had always been unusually heavy, reaching 400 lbs in 1963, 700 lbs in 1966, and 975 lbs in 1976, but he claimed to have been in no way handicapped by his size until a 500-calorie diet sapped his muscle strength and left him at the brink of death. Subsequent hospitalization brought him down to 476 lbs in 1981, mostly through the loss of 12 to 14 pounds of fluid per week. He was readmitted later that year after regaining 200 lbs in seven days. Although physicians at University Hospital in Seattle persisted in treating him with a 1,200-calorie diet, he weighed about 800 lbs at the time of his death. Other details of his physical condition were withheld from the press. Minnoch was the father of two children by his 110-lb wife, Jeannette.

Carol Ann Yager (January 26, 1960 – July 18, 1994) was one of the most severely obese people in history. She has the record as the heaviest woman ever.
Guinness’s female record holder, Rosalie Bradford’s weight loss took over 1 year (420 lbs. in the first year), and she underwent at least five surgical sessions to remove tissue during that time.

When Yager died in 1994 at the age of 34, she weighed about 1200 lbs (544 kg), and was 5′ 7″ (170 cm) in height. Bizarre magazine reported that she was estimated to have been more than 5′ wide (152 cm), although this measurement has not been verified by Yager’s medical team or family members. Shortly before her death, however, she was able to fit through her custom-built 48″ (121 cm) wide front door. Undocumented information from firefighters and rescue personnel of the Beecher Fire Department stated that they had to remove the picture window in the front room of her house to get her body out when she died. Published reports quoted her then-boyfriend as stating that he estimated her peak weight at about 1600 pounds (727 kg), but when questioned about this estimate, Yager’s doctor declined comment.

Rosalie Bradford (August 27, 1943 – November 29, 2006) holds the Guinness World Record for most weight lost by a woman.
In her early twenties she met a man and they were married. The couple eventually had a son. Bradford found herself staying home with their son and cooking a lot. Her weight continued to accelerate uncontrollably, as did her appetite. She eventually tried several diets and joined Weight Watchers with little success.

Finally, after a blood infection landed her in the hospital, Bradford gave up on exercise altogether when the necessary bed rest allowed for her weight gain to accelerate. She remained immobile for eight years. She reached a peak weight of 1,199 lb (544 kg) in January 1987. In 1988, she became so depressed and frustrated that she attempted to commit suicide with painkillers, although, due to her weight, these only made her sleep for a couple of days.
She focused on her diet and stuck to Simmons’s plan. After a year she had dropped 420 lb (190 kg). Eventually she got some more outside help from a physiotherapist and soon her weight dropped to 500 lb (226 kg), a total weight loss of 699 lb (317 kg). Bradford persisted with her weight-loss plan and eventually reduced her weight to under 300 lb (136 kg), claiming a total weight loss of 917 lb (416 kg).The lymphatic system in her legs was damaged in one of five surgeries to remove excess skin left by her weight loss.

Bradford appeared on the Channel 4 television programme BodyShock giving advice to Patrick Deuel.The episode was first broadcast in August 2007.Rosalie Bradford died on November 29, 2006 at a hospital in Lakeland[2] (near her Auburndale, Florida home). She was 63 years old, and was survived by her husband Robert Bradford and son Robbie. She continues to hold the world record for having lost the most weight by a woman.

7. Michael Hebranko

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.He also appeared on TV talk shows such as The Howard Stern Show and the British chat show Wogan in 1990.
However, over the next seven years, his weight increased to 453 kg (1,000 lb) and he 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), before again undergoing a massive weight loss and dropping to 458 pounds. As of March 2012, he resided in Staten Island, New York and weighed 550 lbs. He died on July 25th, 2013.

8.  patrick deuel


Patrick D. Deuel (born 28 March 1962), was one of the fattest people in the world. He was the subject of the documentary “Half Ton Man” in Channel Four’s BodyShock series,in which Rosalie Bradford gave advice after achieving a record-breaking weight loss of 410 kilograms (900 lb).Born in Grand Island, Nebraska, United States, Deuel is a former restaurant manager. At one point, he had not left his house (in Valentine), or even his bed, in 7 years. He stands at 177.5 cm (5 ft 10 in). At his peak he weighed 1,126 pounds (510.75 kg); at the time, the only scale that could be used to weigh him was a livestock scale.

He was so enormous that his bedroom wall had to be cut out to extract him from his home. Then, he was rushed to a Sioux Falls, South Dakota hospital in an ambulance with extra-wide doors and a ramp-and-winch system that had to be dispatched from Denver.Gastric bypass surgery was thought to be his best chance for permanent weight loss. A second operation removed a mass of fat and skin hanging from his midsection.After 12 months, Patrick lost 260 kilograms (570 lb).After leaving the hospital, Patrick lost even more weight, reaching 170 kilograms (370 lb), a notable 318 kilograms (700 lb) loss.

9. Robert Earl Hughes


Robert Earl Hughes (4 June 1926 – 10 July 1958) was, during his lifetime, the heaviest human being recorded in the history of the world.Hughes was born in Baylis, Illinois, in 1926. At the age of six, he weighed about 92 kilograms (200 lb) at ten, he weighed 171 kilograms (380 lb). His excessive weight was attributed to a malfunctioning pituitary gland.

During his adult life, Hughes made guest appearances at carnivals and fairs; plans to appear on the Ed Sullivan television program were announced but never came about. On July 10, 1958, Hughes contracted a case of measles, which soon developed into uremia, resulting in his death in Bremen, Indiana, United States; he was 32 years old.He is often said to have been buried in a piano case.
