Sudden fame overtook Khalid Shaari of Saudi Arabia in 2013.
Then the name of the 22-year-old guy was included in the Guinness Book of Records as the heaviest person living at that time.
Khalid’s recorded record weight was 610 kilograms, and the young man himself had not left his apartment for several years, because he simply did not fit into the doorway.
Who knows how long Khalid would not have been able to leave home without the King of Saudi Arabia, Abdullah Al Saud.
It was he who, having learned that the record holder of 610 kilograms lives in the kingdom, ordered to help the guy get rid of excess weight.
He also paid for the treatment in full and covered all related expenses. But even getting Khalid to the clinic in Riyadh was not the easiest task.
A whole team of movers, installers, doctors and builders were needed to help the 610-kilogram guy get to the treatment site.
Specialists dismantled part of the wall of the building, and then on a loader lowered a specially designed bed on which Khalid was located.
It turned out that Khalid’s excess weight was caused not only by overeating and poor nutrition, but also by genetic abnormalities that needed to be eliminated as soon as possible.
Thanks to a series of procedures and the coordinated work of many specialists, Khalid was able to get rid of almost four hundred kilograms of excess weight in three years.
Now he could move around on his own and even do some physical exercises, so necessary to lose weight.
Now Khalid Shaari is 31 years old and his weight is around 72 kilograms. He is actively involved in sports and leads a healthy lifestyle.
The man is ready to do anything, just to never enter the record books again. In any case, not with a record for his own weight.
Khalid is very grateful to Abdullah Al Saud for giving him a ticket to a new life.
Unfortunately, the king died in 2015 and he did not have time to see the final weight loss result.
