He can't be weighed on any ordinary weighing machine. 32-year-old Shaikh Muhammad Farooq Lateef warns against eating any kind of fast food.
Shaikh Farooq talks about his eating habits:
"I started eating burgers at the age of 8 or 10 from a local eatery. Every bite was taken with a sip of a soft drink. I wanted to eat burgers all the time – in breakfast, lunch and dinner especially. I started gaining weight. Doctor warned me against eating junk food, but I never stopped, as I was a pampered child of my parents. I liked Chinese food, especially drum sticks. Along with this, I kept on eating at least 3-4 burgers every day apart from my usual food. My cold drink in-take kept on increasing, if not constant, with my growing age. A few months back, I drank at least 5-6 bottles a day, which I have now reduced to two recently. Pizza Hut was also my favourite spot and I visited it at least twice a week.
"Bakery items were also my favourite. Ask me what I've not eaten. I preferred restaurants to home-cooked food despite warnings by doctors. I kept on eating roadside burgers till these multinational chains arrived, and I started going there. My favourite party spot used to McDonald's and KFC.
"Now I am not that regular a customer of these chains as these are expensive as compared to roadside burgers. I do go to these new fake brands of FCs, but I am not that frequent a visitor as I used to be. It is because of multiple reasons. Now I strongly feel that I played havoc with my life just for taste only. I am huge now, and having so many diseases because of eating junk food. My marriage ended in divorce.
"Doctors have told me if I will eat junk food, I may die soon, but I can't resist the taste even today. I request all of you not to eat fast food any more. You will invite slow death to you as I have slowly poisoned myself. Take me as an example!
