Maximum body fat?

I asked my former trainer about this a couple years ago, he didn't have an answer and google didn't tell me much either. What's the maximum possible body fat percentage a person could have and still be alive?

There is no maximum. Because no one has measured it. I have seen 65% body fat by DEXA.

I know one of the ladies on the biggest loser this season was at 60%!! She wasn't bed-ridden or anything, so you could probably go even higher?

Well, there's alive, and then there's alive... I have no idea what this guy's bodyfat % was at 1,225lb. In the 80-90% range?

Since fat doesn't kill you, per se- it's probably way up there. Way, way up there. I'm probably at about 60-65%, myself.
