Discovery Channel World's Heaviest Man needs your Help!

Manuel_uribe_2 A few days ago, I got a nice email from Katharine, and she asked me to publish the following. Please help her out as much as you can and also contact her directly, or leave your comments in the blog.

This is a good opportunity to cast your voice and experience, and who knows, you might be on TV ! :)

Hi All,

I work for the TV production company that produced The World’s Heaviest Man, the Discovery documentary about Manuel Uribe. We are now working on the follow up to that show with Manuel and would like to feature other people who are suffering from obesity who have been inspired by Manuel’s story. It would be great to hear from anyone who might like to be involved. Please email me! Let me know: how you heard about Manuel, what weight you are, your age, where you live and whether you have plans for surgery or other treatment. Also add any other information that you think is important.

[email protected]

Thanks so much and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
Best wishes,

How does a person let him/herself get this big? I am considered obese, and I weigh 190, 5'6-hispanic female, 35 years old. I would think once you see yourself getting bigger, you'd diet??? I am not judging at all, cuz I know about addiction, I was addicted to Heroin for years. Well, I guess I just answered my own question!!! LOL. :)


Hey I was just wondering if the hair you lost from the telogen effluvium ever returned? Maybe you could do a follow up post? thanks!

Am in urgent need to contact Katharine Begg. The message I sent to the email address provided in your article was returned as person unknown. I have a relative who has been hospitalized for complications related to his obesity condition. He now weighs over 1100 lbs. Please contact me as soon as possible. Thank you.

I am a private nurse and we have a senior patient who is morbidly obese, his doctor do not recommend surgery with his age. Roca Labs gastric bypass no surgery was advised as alternative and works safely. He is recovering his healthy weight with an average of 2-3 lbs a week. Saved himself from sugical cost and complications. What's good is, there is no diet nor restrictions. Whichever way, best of luck!
