The mother and full-time caregiver of Britain's fattest man, 50 stones, spoke today of her hopes he'll switch to salads after being hoisted out of her third-floor apartment by a crane after developing a £ 10,000-a-year snack Habit.
30-year-old Jason Holton from Camberley, Surrey, has been home for five years and spends £ 30 a day on JustEat takeaways, including kebab, french fries and chicken chow mein, which comes with 1.5 liters of orange juice and five cans of Diet Coke was rinsed off.
His 52-year-old mother, Leisa, watched as her son was evacuated by 30 firefighters in a seven-hour operation where civil engineers reinforced the floor of their maisonette with two beds should it fall.
She told MailOnline today: “He always had a problem with obesity. Since childhood he has been fine and not bad. Most of it was five years ago when he gained weight after some mental health issues.
“He was tied to the house and couldn't leave the house. I hope he will change things and just stick to salads and not take away. He's already talked about that. I hope this could wake him up. & # 39;
He is unable to work due to Mr. Holton's health problems and receives benefits such as £ 197.60 per week for unemployment benefit and £ 112.80 for personal independence. His mother also gets £ 200 a month to help with council tax.

Leisa was told that her son could die of a heart attack in five years if he doesn't take serious steps to curb his daily 10,000 calorie diet.
The worried mother insisted that she tried to stop him from using his debit card to order takeaway food, but believes he has an "addiction" to fast food.

She added, “Seeing him being lifted out of the apartment was very worrying because they said he could actually stop breathing. I was just glad he was fine. & # 39;
“He is currently in the hospital, where he has been for almost two weeks, although he has not yet had an operation.
“I couldn't visit because of the coronavirus. It's bad and very difficult when you are worried about a family member but can't see them. «
Mr Holton has described how his balloon weight and various mental and physical health problems made him depressed. He spent weeks waiting for my heart to give up before finally calling emergency services.
From his hospital bed, he said to The Sun, “It was amazing because it was the first time in six years that I had seen fresh air.
"I was given codeine to take the pain off the crane straps, but all I remember is the breath of fresh air and the breeze that blows over my body."
The operation on October 11th was watched by a man who passed by on his way out of the pub and recorded what had happened.
He told MailOnline: “At first I thought it was a training operation or something, it wasn't until later that I realized that they were actually moving a person.
"All the firefighters got their gear up before they smashed the window and got him down."
Mr. Holton is being treated for lymphedema, a chronic condition that causes swelling in his groin and legs.
He said he once asked the NHS for gastric banding surgery but was turned down. Instead, his mother was told to rip up the debit card he used to buy food stalls.
After the death of 65th Carl Thompson in 2015, Holton became Britain's fattest man.
The 33-year-old from Dover had been home tied for more than a year after doctors warned he had to lose 70 percent of his body weight to survive.
When his mother died of a brain tumor in 2012, Mr Thompson turned to junk food to deal with his grief – even though he was already obese.
His weight rose from 30 to 65 in three years so that he could no longer take care of himself.
Mr Thompson consumed a staggering 10,000 calories a day – four times the daily amount a man would eat – eating Chinese takeaways and pizzas delivered to his door, claiming he spent £ 10 a day on chocolate
He could not walk or get dressed and was bathed and cooked by a team of NHS attendants.
The winch operation – seen here in video footage – involved 30 firefighters and lasted seven hours
