When talking about weights of lions and tigers and about it, that how much they can eat, it is good to watch 31:40-32:20 from this documentary. Whole documentary is interesting, but in that part there is explained what happens when a lion eats a lot in a short time. That helps to understand partially why there are many doubts concerning old records what comes to lions and tigers.

Lions are doing just fine, the Ngorongoro crater is a magical place, all animals there are huge and healthy with year round herds, cooler temps and nutrient rich vegetation.

Lions make the trek from the surrounding Ngorongoro park and the Serengeti, although this is rare with the masai villages along the way, but even still its lots of open area that they can avoid the villagers.
The Masai are actually allowed to bring their cattle into the crater each day to graze and the lions for the most part have learned to leave them alone because if a lion kills their cattle the Masai will hunt them down.

Nelis Wolmarans: " A large male lion quenching his thirst in one of the small wallows that filled with rain water from a thunderstorm the night before. Pride males will often leave the family for extended periods whilst patrolling their territory, keeping intruding males at bay. I photographed this male on an @essentialafricaguidedsafaris trip to Tanzania’s Northern Serengeti...  "
