Prader-Willi Syndrome overwhelming desire for food and the inability to feel full after eating.

Prader-Willi Syndrome is a rare genetic disorder that creates an overwhelming desire for food and the inability to feel full after eating.

I am pretty sure I have this disease. I can eat forever and I still want more....chocolate chip cookies and peanut butter.

There is a dude the size of a whole family in Michigan who has it.

When a visiting nurse thought he needed medical attention she called the fire department, er, medical authorities.

Firefighters brought a telescopic forklift, tarps, hammers and chainsaws to get the man out of his house AFTER they knocked a hole in the wall….all 900 lbs of him.prader.willi.jpg

The man who 'worked on the computer' had not left home for more than four years.

Two trees had to be trimmed and a flat bed truck was used to haul him to the hospital.

The hospital, thank goodness, was prepared, too…their gurneys can hold up to 1,000 pounds.

PWS is a genetic disorder that affects one person in every NBA basketball arena (12,000-15,000).

On second thought, I think I just have an overactive right arm....it bends and lifts too much to the left and up while carrying caloric substances.

What's your excuse, um, reason for being overweight?
