A 13-year-old boy who was once known as “the world’s fattest boy” has made massive progress in his weight loss journey.
Arya Permana, who hails from West Java in Indonesia, has reportedly lost a whopping seventeen stone and the transformation is said to be highly impressive.
This comes 4 years after Arya made headlines for weighing an eye-watering thirty stone.
The 17-year-old, who weighed a normal 7lb when he was born, before his weight skyrocket by the age of 2, was able to achieve this remarkable weight loss under the guidance of Indonesian bodybuilder Ade Rai and a team of health professionals. It was also learnt that his strict training regime was accompanied with a healthy diet and medical treatment.

“Arya managed to lose weight through bariatric surgery, diet, and regular exercise,” he said.
“For me, they are all good and supportive of each other.” In order to fight the flab after his dramatic weight loss, Arya will undergo surgery later this year — removing excess skin.
