Meet the 192 kg 10yr old Boy Who Eats 5 Meals a Day

  Arya Permana is just ten years old but weighs a jaw-dropping 192 kilograms! The boy, from Cipurwasari village, in West Java, Indonesia, has been named the world’s fattest child, whose impressive physique made the international headlines.
According to his parents, Arya eats five meals a day including rice, fish, beef, vegetable soup and soy patty and is constantly hungry. The child wears only a sarong, a large piece of fabric often wrapped around the waist, as other clothes simply do not fit him.

  He doesn’t go to school, cannot walk and has a series of morbid obesity related complications. His mother Rokayah, who hopes that one day her son would be able to live a normal life, said: “He has an enormous diet and can actually eat meals of two adults at one time.
He is always tired and complains of shortness of breath. He only eats and sleeps and when he is not done with both, he jumps into the bathtub and stays there for hours. My son is growing up at a rapid rate and I am worried for his health.


  I do not know any other way to stop him from gaining more weight than to give him less food. He can only take small steps before he loses balance. I wish to see my son studying and playing with other kids in the neighborhood.”

  Initially Rokayah, 35, and her husband Ade Somantri, 45, were not worried about Arya’s weigh but now they are extremely concerned about his future and fear he may die if nothing to be done.
We were happy to see him fuller and considered him to be a happy, healthy child. But it was only a few years later when he bloated and his weight went out of control, we realised he was suffering from a disorder and needed medical attention.”
Rokayah and Ade cannot allow costly medical treatment for their son abroad but local doctors refuse to help the boy as they did not find anything abnormal about his alarming weight gain.
