Sup Travellers?! If you're an avid reader of the Guinness Book Of World Records then the name Manuel Uribe probably sounds familiar to you. Uribe was once the world's heaviest man with a weight of 1,230 pounds in 2006. But he has since slimmed down to 867 pounds, well below his then-record peak weight.

Uribe had been confined to his bed in Monterrey, Mexico for years, unable to walk on his own. But despite his inability to walk and his record weight, Uribe still managed to woo the love of his life and get married [yes, he's a married man]. 

According to Daily Mail UK, he had hoped to walk down the aisle, but despite his dramatic weight loss, he was transported to the ceremony on a flatbed truck and remained in his custom-made bed. He reportedly lost as much as 550 pounds for his wedding day.

But some of the weight quickly came back and he became bedridden, relying on his mother and friends to feed and clean him. 


On May 2 2014, Uribe was taken to the hospital because of an abnormal heartbeat. He had to be taken to the hospital with a crane by emergency and civil defense workers. His actual cause of death has not been revealed but it probably had a lot to do with his heart and liver problems that resulted from his obesity.

How does one even begin to lose 1,230 pounds? Firstly, you can't move so running on a treadmill is a no no. The only thing you can do is diet but a diet can't do much for you if you are bedridden. RIP Uribe. My name is Trinikid and you've just been informed.
