Arya Permana currently weighs the size of 30 stones at the age of 10. Being the fattest 10 year old in the world is not exactly an enjoyable feat for this Indonesian child. As a matter of fact, he is going through a pretty difficult time.

Arya has dropped out of school since he cannot not walk for long because of his weight. He has a life threatening schedule of eating and sleeping all through the day. According to his mother, he is perpetually hungry. Arya feeds 5 times a day; and could consumes the food portion of 2 adults per meal.


“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. ” 

Children at the age of 10 should be able to run around and play with other children. But that is not the case for Arya. He causes quite a stare from people.

Arya Permana has terrible issues sleeping. He constantly battles with shortness of breath. To ease the situation, he sleeps with his head leaning on the wall.

The Indonesian boy’s parents have resorted to a change of diet to help Arya go down on his weight. They hope their son will be well again.

I have started putting him on a brown rice diet. I am not sure if it helps, but this  is the only thing I can do to stop him from getting bigger.
