Paul Mason, 61, of Ipswich, said he was “disgusted” to learn of the plans, which were made when he was living in a hospital ward for three years.

The hospital would not have been able to handle him because he was so large, according to the Daily Mail .

Mason once weighed over 1,100 pounds and said on a documentary on ITV, The World’s Fattest Man: 10 Years On that the hospital  would  “have to take me to an abattoir to where the large animals go to and die ….  And I’d be cremated in the animal cremation,” he said.

“I couldn’t believe they were doing that.”

Mason also said he once ate 40 chocolate bars a day and it made his teeth crumble. He said he’d pull out his cracked teeth himself.

Mason had lost a lot of weight in the past, he was on TLC’s  World’s Fattest Man , and lived in the United States for a few years, but is now back in England.
