51-year-old Paul Mason, former fattest man used to weigh 70 stone or 444 kilograms but has since lost 285 kilograms (45 stone) and has changed for the better.
He lost the weight after undergoing a gastric bypass operation on the NHS that reduced his stomach to the size of an egg and now weighs 24 stone equivalent to 152kgs and 336 pounds. Since the operation his breakfast consists of a single slice of toast with jam or peanut butter, lunch a small spaghetti bolognese, and dinner a jacket potato with cheese.
Mason had the operation two years ago and is currently writing a book about his experience and looking into the prospect of consultancy work, talking to people about eating disorders. He has already started his own jewellery business but would like to learn how to drive, go on holiday and settle down with a partner.
