Steven Assanti has been left living out of his father's 4x4 after he was booted out of the clinic where he spent 80 days trying to shed 39 stone.

The 33-year-old was getting the help he desperately needed to fight his "eating addiction" at Rhode Island Hospital in Providence, US.

Determined Mr Assanti, from Cranston, had already managed to lose a stone over the last few months.

But when he momentarily broke the rules of his plan by ordering a takeaway pizza he was told he had to leave.

 

Mr Assanti said he was supposed to stay at the hospital until his weight dropped to 40 stone, enabling him to have gastric bypass surgery.

The desperate homeless man said: "It's an addiction and I realise that. And it's a disease."

His father Steven Veilette said he cannot take his son home because he won't be able to get up the stairs.

Mr Veilette said: "I just don't know who to turn to.

"I called everybody, everybody you can think of in the state of Rhode Island and nobody seems to be able to help me."

 

Mr. Assanti took to his Facebook page to thank people for the support he has received on social media.

In a video posted online, he said: "Hopefully, in the near future there will be a positive follow-up with my weight loss.

"I would like to thank all my supporters as well on my Facebook page and also to all the negative comments that give me a thicker skin."
