Fattest Man Dies of Pneumonia at 44; Once Weighed Over 980 Pounds

By    |   Friday, 05 Dec 2014 06:38 PM

Keith Martin, the world's fattest man, has died at age 44 of pneumonia.

The British man had spent years battling an eating disorder, and at his heaviest, he weighed more than 980 pounds.

News.com.au said that in a documentary about Martin, the world's fattest man shared that his problems began when his mother died — also of pneumonia — when he was 16. Things got worse in his 20s, when he became severely depressed.

"I’ve always been depressed. I am an agoraphobic — I’m afraid of public places — but it was never treated," he said in the film.

Martin had a gastric sleeve operation to remove three-quarters of his stomach, and had been bedridden for the last eight months.

The Mirror said Martin "would gorge on 20,000 calories a day ... having six-egg fry-ups for breakfast then pizzas, kebabs, Chinese takeaways and Big Macs for lunch and dinner all washed down with six pints of coffee and two litres of fizzy drinks."
