I once saw a documentary on the man featured in this article (click post title to access.) Manuel Uribe once weighed a half-ton, but has now slimmed down by around 550 pounds.
He dreams of walking his fiancee down the aisle in the next year. With the help of doctors, he has changed his eating habits. I truly hope his wish does come true, especially since he plans to create a foundation to help educate people about nutrition and combat obesity, which has become a growing problem in Mexico.
