Being overweight is a very serious condition because it is responsible for numerous deaths annually around the world. However, being overweight is, in most cases, an easily preventable condition. Unlike some people, whose overweight condition has a strong relationship to a malfunction in their metabolism or any other medical problem, most people can simply exercise or adopt a strict diet and they will never be at risk of any weight-related complications.
Therefore, it is very important for an individual to see a weight professional as soon as he or she discovers that his or her weight is getting out of hand. The reason for consulting a professional is because everyone is unique and your body might require a special form of treatment to keep your weight in check, different from what is working for other people.
The saying that 'you are what you eat' holds a lot of truth, because an individual cannot expect to eat excess amounts of junk foods containing harmful levels of cholesterol and think that he or she will retain the same lean figure that he or she has always had. Furthermore, one cannot expect to sit down on the couch the whole day every day and not think that his or her body is storing fats. Here is a list of some of the heaviest people who ever lived; let us learn from them because we need not head down that road.

Jon Brower Minnoch was a U.S. citizen born in 1941. Jon was and still remains to be the heaviest person in the world, weighing in at approximately 1,400 lbs at his peak in 1979. Jon Brower's weight is the heaviest weight ever recorded of a human being, with more than half of it attributed to his body's water retention resulting from a condition common in overweight people called edema. However, Jon worked hard to shed a lot of weight before he died, since one of his last weight measurements showed he was down to 796 lbs. Jon Brower died in 1983.
