One of the world’s fattest man is looking for love – but he’s refusing to date any woman who weighs less than 16 stone.
Arbab Khizer Hayat, 27, tips the scales at 962lb – just under 70 stone – and is known as Pakistan’s ‘Hulk man’.
He’s 6ft 6in tall and scoffs an incredible 10,000 calories a day.
But he says he’s now under pressure from his family to find a woman to marry and start a family with – but he hasn’t yet met anyone who has taken his fancy.
He claims he’s already snubbed up to 300 woman who wanted to live happily ever after with him – but they weren’t tall or fat enough for him to consider as a bride, as he’s worried he would CRUSH an average-sized woman.
He said: “I want to meet a woman who weighs at least 220lb, and she has to be above 6ft4in tall, so we look right together.
“I need a heavyweight wife so I do not hurt her.
“All the women who have wanted to marry me so far have been too skinny.
“My parents want me to get married. They want to have grand kids but I haven’t found the right match for myself.
“In the last seven years, I have been desperately looking for love, and have seen 200-300 girls, but they were all an average weight.
“I am 6’6 feet tall and weigh almost a tonne so it is not possible to look a normal couple with an average woman. It’s very important to me that we look right.”
Hayat’s perfect woman also needs to be a great cook – as he’s expressed a wish for her to help whip up his 10,000 calorie feasts every day.
He typically wolfs down 36 eggs each day for breakfast, along with five litres of milk.
He’ll chow down 7lb of meat every day along with bowls full of rice and bread – but claims he faces no health issues because of his phenomenal weight.
He added: ‘I don’t have any medical conditions. I am absolutely fit and comfortable with my weight. But I have to keep exercising and eating to become a world champion strong man.
“I started gaining weight in my teens but I realised that I wanted to get into weightlifting and strongman championships. So I continued to put on weight.”
Hayat, who lives in the city of Mardan in Pakistan, started gaining weight in his teens.
In his neighbourhood though, Hayat is already a star. He has been recognised as the world’s strongest man across Pakistan.
He became famous after videos of him pulling a tractor by a rope as the machine tries to reverse away from him, went viral.
Hundreds of locals turn up at Hayat’s home every day so that they can take selfies with the gentle giant.
‘I get a lot of love and admiration from the people here. But I don’t want to stop here. I want to become a world star,’ he says.
