The three year old Chinese kid, Li Zuhao is at 132 lbs and his eating habits are uncontrollable. He is already five times the size of a normal child his age. The boy eats an astonishing THREE bowls of rice during the family meal.
When Lu Hao was born he weighted 5.7 lbs but from the time he was three months old he started gaining weight at a rapid rate. Hao’s father, Lu Yuncheng said, ‘ ‘His appetite is so good that for a meal he can eat three big bowls of rice, even larger than I and his mother.’
However, his parents were concerned about his health when he started consuming food at a rampant rate but he would cry non stop if not fed as much as he wanted.
His parents have urged him to get involved in sports and tried controlling his diet but he somehow has managed to gain 22 lbs since the past year.
Neither of the parents can lift their child up and the parents reported that there is no one as giant as him in the family history. Hao despises walking and insists on his parents taking him to kindergarten on a motorcycle.
He has abundant amount of toys but his best one is that of superman. When his mom asks if he wants to be like superman, Hao giggles cutely and says, ‘No, I am too fat to be him.’ He has established himself as a successful youtube star and in his videos he angrily shouts at the camera while eating.
In order to encourage him to get moving and running about, they have installed a basketball hoop in the yard along with taking him to the local river for a swim.
But their goal is disrupted as getting involved in such physical activities makes him more hungry afterwards which results in him gaining more weight. They took him to three hospitals as they feared he might have gotten tumor. One doctor confirmed he has tumor while the other two didn’t agree with this.
The doctors said that his hormonal level is fine and it’s a wonder why he is craving so much food. His father is really worried about his health and fears if he grows at this rate, his heart may eventually give up on him. They also fear his social situation as when he grows old he becomes aware about his weight and he may be bullied in school by calling him mean names like ‘fatty.’ They can only hope that their son will get thin eventually.
A Hong Kong clinic has offered him a free weight loss help. The Chinese government has labelled him as a “the No. 1 fat kid.” The parents are waiting for a permit to visit them and get help.
According to research, the grandparents are making their grand kids eat abundantly and pampering them, which has resulted in the kids being obese. This is a huge problem and people should be made aware about the staggering affect it is having on children.
