Lats night I watched a documentary about The 'Worlds Fattest man' (not a title I particularly liked but accurate nonetheless...). Morbid obesity can so easily be turned into a freak show.

At his heaviest, Manuel Uribe weighed a staggering 1200lbs (85 stone) and has been bed ridden for the last 5 years. He is on the Zone Diet now and losing significant weight.

I still struggle to understand how anyone can get this far out of shape but I could not help admiring his obvious and genuine determination to lose weight and live an active life. An inspiration to everyone regardless of weight.

Check out more on Manuel's story here and the Zone diet here.
