The heaviest ever sumo wrestler gave some health advice. He warned wrestlers to take better care of themselves and eat less. Sumo wrestlers eat a lot. Orora said wrestlers should think carefully about their diet and reduce their calories. He said: "It's never easy to stay healthy as long as you're living the life of a sumo wrestler."

Orora weighed 292kg. He put on weight by eating over 7,000 calories a day. He ate 200 pieces of sushi with beer and extra bowls of rice. This gave him hypertension. He would sleep right after eating. He said: "Just walking or moving was really troublesome." Wrestlers should eat more vegetables and fewer snacks.
