The Guinness Book of Records' fattest man has lost 570 pounds, which was half of his body weight, a report said.
Manuel Uribe, 42, of Monterrey, Mexico, lost the weight after going on a low-carbohydrate diet for two years, the Telegraph (Britain) reported Friday.
After Uribe asked for help losing the weight on national television, nutritionists and doctors from the United States and Mexico put him on a high-protein diet and workout routine.
"I'm going to throw a big party. I'm getting out of my house and going for a walk," Uribe said.
Uribe, who has been confined to his bed since 2002, accepted the help from U.S. and Mexican experts after refusing to have a gastric bypass operation suggested by Italian and Spanish medics, the report said.
Uribe is reportedly scheduled to be lifted from his home by a crane for a celebratory ride around town on a truck March 9.
