What Are the Most Epic Weight Loss Stories?

Carol Yager (1960 - 1994) 1 of 16

Carol Yager, the heaviest woman ever, topped out at a staggering 1200 pounds.

Carol's amazing loss of 521 pounds in three months is the quickest natural weight loss in history.

How she did it:

  • The weight loss occurred when she was hospitalized to treat cellulitis and a weakened immune system.
  • She was restricted to a 1200 calorie diet.
  • No surgery was involved.
  • A large proportion of her weight loss was fluid -- and she quickly regained it after leaving the hospital.
