Jon Brower Minnoch was an American man who, at his peak weight, was the heaviest human being ever recorded, weighing approximately 1,400 lb (635 kilograms; 100 stone). This figure was only a close estimation because his extreme size, declining health, and lack of mobility prevented use of a scale.
At the age of 12, Minnoch weighed 294 lb (133 kilograms; 21.0 stone), and by age 22 he was 6 ft 1 in (185 cm) in height and weighed 392 lb (178 kilograms; 28.0 stone).
He was discharged from the hospital after 16 months on a strict diet of 1,200 kcal (5,000 kJ) per day. He weighed 476 lb (216 kg; 34.0 st), having lost approximately 924 lb (419 kg; 66.0 st), the largest human weight loss ever documented.However, he was readmitted to the hospital just over a year later in October 1981, after his weight increased to 952 lb (432 kg; 68.0 st). With his underlying condition of edema being incurable and difficult to treat, the decision was made to discontinue treatment, and he died 23 months later on September 10, 1983, aged 41. At the time of his death, he weighed 798 lb (362 kg; 57.0 st) with a 105.3 BMI.
