The highest BMI ever recorded was by an American man, named Robert Butler, who weighed in at an astonishing 1,200 pounds. He was morbidly obese and lived in North Carolina. He was 6 feet 4 inches tall and his BMI was calculated to be 105.
At the time of his death in 2014, Butler was believed to have suffered from a range of medical issues associated with his extreme weight, including heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and chronic pain. He was also believed to have been suffering from sleep apnea, a condition which causes sufferers to stop breathing during sleep.
It is believed that Butler's excessive weight was caused by a combination of genetics and his poor diet. In particular, he was known to have a particular liking for fast food and processed snacks. He was also a heavy smoker and had a habit of drinking large quantities of soda.
However, Butler's extreme BMI was not the only record he held. He was also the holder of the Guinness World Record for the 'Heaviest Living Man'.
The Guinness World Record for the 'Heaviest Living Man' was officially set in 2003 and was held by Butler until his death in 2014. The current record holder is Paul Mason, who weighed in at 980 pounds in 2010.
Obesity is a serious health issue and can lead to a wide range of medical complications, including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and even certain types of cancer. It is therefore important to maintain a healthy diet in order to avoid gaining excessive weight. Regular physical activity is also recommended in order to keep your BMI in check.
