fat Chinese babyLu Hao is only three years old, but weighs much the same as a fully grown woman.

The little boy tips the scales at a massive 9st 6lb, and refuses to walk - meaning his mum Chen Yuan has to transport him around on her motorbike.

Lu's incredible bulk is down to his massive appetite - his mum claims if she does not fill his plate with enormous portions of food he screams and wails until he gets more.

fat Chinese babyHis dad Lu Yuncheng spoke of his son's diet saying: 'For a meal he can eat three big bowls of rice,' whilst mum Chen Yuan added: 'If we don't feed him he will cry non-stop.'

Lu was born a normal size 5lb 7oz but began to pile on the pounds when he was three months old. Medics claim he is now FIVE times the size he should be.

Exertion simply makes him more hungry: 'We worry,' Lu Yuncheng said, 'If he carries on at this rate his heart could fail. Doctors said his hormones are normal. It's hard to know why he could be so big.'
