The world’s fattest man just got lighter by 158.75 kilos, all thanks to a celeb diet that includes guzzling fish oil.

Manuel Uribe hit his, and the world’s, highest weight when he tipped the scales at a massive 596.90 kilos – that of five baby elephants put together.

Unfortunately, no diet seemed to help the 41-year-old Mexican, who even turned to a quack who advised him to spray himself with lambs’ blood.

“I had tried everything, even spraying myself in lambs’ blood as recommended by a quack,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.

Thankfully for Uribe, help came in the form of The Zone, a diet devised by American Dr Barry Sears, which is regularly followed by stars such as Sandra Bullock and Jennifer Aniston.

“This is the first diet that has worked. It is a miracle,” he added.

The celeb diet involves eating a lot of chicken, vegetables and salad, as well as a fish oil supplement that reportedly speeds up weight loss by activating fat-burning enzymes.

Uribe now weighs in at 438.15 kilos.
