    Haven't watched it yet, but has the child perhaps got an illness that makes them gain weight, or is it clearly down to the parents?

    That's terrible, totally agree its child abuse - and someone on there has said its the kids fault and she should have said no - what a crock of b.s she is a kid she isnt grown up enough to make grown up choices about food its down to the parents. grrr mad.

    its down to the parents, the kid was on Maury a couple of years back, she used to eat about 8000 calories a day having cheese burgers for breakfast and 3 pork chops as an afternoon snack and things x

    I thought that too, but its only been now she's had medical intervention for her weight, they wouldn't do a documentary on her if it was an illness that caused it, it is the parents..she was asking for popcorn without being able to walk!

    Apparently she's lost 150lbs since, but still has problems walking because of the weight she used to be- she's going to live a very sad life now because of the weight she was

    Someone needs to give her parents a slap to wake them up and see what they're doing is clearly abuse that will affect this young girl for the rest of her life!

    :( I feel so sorry for the children!!!! It's not the parents that have to live with the nasty remarks other kids make. The parents should be made to realise what they are doing to their poor kids.

    Couldn't watch much of that I am almost in tears from what I did see. And the comments from some people on the you tube comments section are just disgusting.

    Unless there is an underlying medical condition like Prader Wili (sp?) what kind of parents let their child get that way?

    That poor little mite - I can see the other little girl mentioned on this thread ending up that way as well.

    If feeding your child too few calories is child abuse and a prosecutable offense, surely feeding them too many calories should be one as well. I bet if they did the tests both those children would be malnourished.

    It's a disgrace.

    But she's still addicted to food! I can see her gaining again when she's older, when she's allowed to manage money, go to college and generally be in charge of her own life.
