Yesterday Mexican Manuel Uribe (41) was a happy day - for the first time in five years, he was able to leave his home and be on the streets. More recently, he weighed more than 550 pounds and was doomed to remain bedridden for the rest of his life.
In January last year, Manuel through the press turned to doctors for help. She came to him in the form of Italian and Spanish doctors who offered Manuel operation. However, the Mexican decided to trust the local physiotherapists, which amounted to a special diet (high-protein diet). In a relatively short time, Manuel was able to get rid of almost 180 kg. and now weighs about 380 kg. His goal for the future - to lose another 120 pounds. and try to finally stand up and leave the house alone.
