The fear of death from gluttony made a resident of the English city of Chester-le-Street Don Dawson (Dawn Dawson) lose 114 kilograms. Reported by the Mirror.
The mother of two admitted that she used to consume an average of eight thousand calories a day and weighed almost 182 kilograms. Her daily diet included at least two glasses of alcohol, four bacon sandwiches and two liters of soda.
Due to being overweight, a 38-year-old British woman developed diabetes and the need to constantly take painkillers.
She decided to lose weight when her 61-year-old father died. The cause of death was cancer, which, according to Dawson, was caused by obesity. The woman was afraid that her manic desire to constantly eat something could also lead to death.
For several years, the woman adhered to a strict diet, consuming no more than 1,800 calories per day. Now she weighs 67 kilograms and has already gotten rid of excess skin through plastic surgery.
In June, it was reported that an overweight New Zealander tried to feed himself to death for fear of confessing to his family that he was homosexual. However, he revealed the secret to his nephew and found that no one protested against his orientation. This helped him decide to lose weight, thanks to which he lost 100 kilograms.
