Arya Permana, 13-year-old former world’s fattest boy, has shared an amazing transformation picture of his successful weight loss journey.
The teenager who made news in 2016 when he weighed a whopping 30 stone has now shed 17 out of it, Sun UK reports.
With the help of an Indonesian bodybuilder, Ade Rai and another team of health experts, he was able to lose two-thirds of his body size.
Many have hailed his success as a very inspiring one as he posted his before-and-after pictures on his Instagram page that has 350,000 followers.
In one of his posts on the platform, he could be seen performing some regimens with his personal trainer as he squats and lift weights.
For a boy who had rolls of flesh all over his body and was always looking so tired, this is a very huge success indeed.
It should be noted that his training is professionally monitored and assisted by a healthy diet and medical treatment.
Arya’s dad said that his son was able to lose all the fat through a three-step routine of bariatric surgery, diet, and regular exercise.
Later in the year, the boy will be going through surgery to remove the excess skins he has on his body.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that scientists are competing for a whopping £30 million (N14,192,907,000) grant to build the first-ever robotic heart that uses the power of synthetic soft tissue for human usability.
The British Heart Foundation is the organization offering the grant to whoever wins the daunting challenge.

The success of the competition will help reduce deaths that are tied to heart failures or inability to get one.
The heart will work in combination with a person’s cells, making it a reliable hybrid heart. An interesting thing is that it would be grown in a lab after it has been covered with human tissue, making it more dependable.
According to the same media, 42,000 people died from heart-related diseases in the UK. Of the figure, those under 65 years old were 18,668.
