‘One more pizza could kill me’
Thursday 09 February 2012
Unable to stick to a diet, Michael Hebranko has lost and gained a staggering 286st during his lifetime. He’s now been warned he needs to lose weight – or die.
Morbidly obese dad Michael Hebranko tipped the scales at a shocking 80st in 1986 and went on to be branded the world’s heaviest man.
Incredibly, four years later, he’d lost a staggering 66st. But, after celebrating the milestone by gorging on four hot dogs and chips smothered in cheese, Michael’s diet was broken – and the food addict piled on the pounds again...
In total, he has lost and gained a colossal 286st over the past 26 years. Now weighing 42st, Michael, has been given two years to diet – or die.
"If I don’t lose weight, I’ll die in the next couple of years. I’ve been told to get a will ready. I’m scared, but I’ve lost weight before, I can do it again” says Michael.
In 1990, Michael had lost an incredble 66stone and was put in the Guiness Book od World Records for the highest recorded weight loss but devastatingly, over just six years, Michael ballooned back up to 80st.
“I’d sneak into McDonald’s on the way home from work, or make excuses to go to DIY shops at the weekend, then stop off for greasy fry-ups.”

RE: ‘One more pizza could kill me’
They should wire his jaw together so he can only drink liquids through a straw. then give him a gastric band. how can anyone get to such a weight ? if he can't stick to diets then he has no hope of ever losing the weight. it's very sad really, i wish him the best.
