Three-Year-Old Boy Weighs 130 Pounds — And He Refuses To Diet!

His desperate parents say they are afraid of him and his vicious food tantrums!

So sad. At 130 pounds, 3-year-old Lu Hao, from China, weighs five times more than normal kids his age. The problem is, his distraught parents have tried to stop their toddler from gorging on third and fourth helpings of food, but they are completely afraid of him! WHAT!? They say he throws terrible tantrums if he doesn’t get his way.

“We have to let him be, as if we don’t feed him he will cry nonstop,” his mom Chen Huan from Dashan, Guangdong Province, tells UK’s The Sun. They have tried to cut down his meals in the past, but Lu has gained a whopping 22 pounds this year alone.

Ironically, Lu was born underweight at 5.7 lbs, but started packing on the pounds once he reached 3-months-old. Lu’s dad, Lu Yuncheng, struggles to pick his toddler son up, adding, “His appetite is so good that for a meal he can eat three big bowls of rice, even larger than I and his mother.”

Lu is no longer attending nursery school, in fear that he might harm the other children, so he usually is isolated at home. And although he plays and swims, he loses his breath and gets tired very easily.

“He can expect joint damage, high blood pressure, heart trouble and diabetes, if he hasn’t developed these complications already,” The Sun‘s Dr. Carol Cooper explains. “A few youngsters with eating problems have a hormone disorder, but in this case it seems that Lu Hao’s family have simply fed him much more than he needs.”

This is just sad. He’s too young to face these kind of weight struggles.

I understand that each culture has its own way of raising children; but it is hard for me to understand a 16 year old controlling their parents, and this is a 3 year old. Discipline/consequences began at an early age. Parents stop laughing and thinking everything your children say and do is cute. It isn’t; especially as they get older. Not perfect, love food and love to cook. But my children and I exercise together. They are respectful and we do enjoy each others company and have many laughs/silly times together. Building positive memories.
