Ardi Changed From World's Chubbiest Toddler Who Chain-Smoked 40 A Day To Healthy Boy

At a young age, Ardi Rizal developed a smoking habit, which required a lot of effort from his parents to break. However, after overcoming this addiction, Rizal developed an addiction to food and would overeat every day.

To address this issue, his parents sought the help of a food specialist to manage his diet. As a result, Rizal is now thriving academically and living a healthy life.

Ardi Rizal, once known as the world's chubbiest kid for his addiction to 40 cigarettes a day and overeating, has transformed his life and is now barely recognizable.

When he was just two years old, Rizal began smoking cigarettes in his family's backyard in Sumatra, Indonesia.

After seven years, Ardi Rizal appears remarkably different, having shed pounds and abandoned his unhealthy habits.

Previously, the overweight child would consume three cans of fatty condensed milk daily. However, he now follows a diet consisting of fresh fish, fruits, and vegetables.

When speaking to CNN, Ardi Rizal admitted that quitting smoking was the most challenging habit to overcome.

He explained, "It was hard for me to stop. If I am not smoking, my mouth taste is sour and my head feel dizzy."

"I am happy now. I feel more enthusiastic, and my body is feeling fresh."

Ardi's parents required the help of government intervention and specialized care to successfully remove nicotine from his life.

Diana, his mother, shared that the child would throw tantrums whenever she confiscated his cigarettes, disregarding her concerns about the potential for him to die.

"He (would) start to smash his head to the wall. He was crazy, hurting himself if he didn't get a cigarette," Diana recounted.
