Posted by Rachel Leigh email

MEXICO (WFLX) - After two years of a steady diet, Manuel Uribe, who was once the world's most obese man, is now much lighter and leaving his home.

Uribe holds an unhealthy Guinness book title. At one time, he weighed 1,200 pounds and was home-bound.

Now, 550 pounds lighter, with the help of a forklift and truck, he was taken lakeside.

Uribe has only been outside one other time in the past five years.
