Top 10 fattest people in history



Even though some people would like to add some weight to showcase their healthy feeding lifestyle, others just can’t control their weight.

Most of these people suffer from obesity. Obesity is a long-term (chronic) health condition that progresses over time. It is defined by excess body fat (adipose tissue) that may impair health. Body mass index (BMI) is a calculation that takes a person’s weight and height into account to measure body size.

Obesity is a serious health condition that can lead to a number of health problems, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer. If you are obese, it is important to talk to your doctor about ways to lose weight and improve your health.

That being said, here are the top 10 heaviest/fattest people in human history:

1. Jon Brower Minnoch (United States) – 635 kg (1,396 lb)

The heaviest person in medical history was Jon Brower Minnoch (USA)(1941–83), who had suffered from obesity since childhood. He was 185 cm (6 ft 1 in) tall and weighed 178 kg (392 lb or 28 st) in 1963, 317 kg (700 lb or 50 st) in 1966 and 442 kg (975 lb or 69 st 9 lb) in September 1976.

2. Khalid bin Mohsen Shaari (Saudi Arabia) – 610 kg (1,345 lb)

Khalid bin Mohsen Shaari is a Saudi Arabian man, who in August 2013 was found to be the heaviest living person, and the second-heaviest person in recorded history at 610 kg, behind Jon Brower Minnoch. As a result of medical treatment, he lost a total of 320 kg —more than half his body weight—in six months.
