How world’s heaviest people fared after weight loss surgery

As 36-year old Egyptian woman Eman Ahmed, who is believed to be the heaviest woman in the world, arrived in Mumbai to undergo a weight reduction programme, we took a look at how some of the world’s heaviest individuals fared post weight reduction programme.
