    Poor kid. Perhaps a reaction to being underweight is to eat tons of food but his metabolism got damaged and now he eats tons but doesn't burn any. Either way I hope he gets the help he needs. Hopefully it's not all "tell the boy whose body screams at him to keep eating to eat less" nonsense. I would have to know the whole story, though.

    I remember Robert Lustig talking about kids with brain tumors getting like that.

    Looks and sounds exactly like Prader-Willi Syndrome. I've worked with some of those kids before - they are insatiable. Poor baby.

    The Prader-Willi makes sense.

    My daughter was the same birth weight and,sadly, I think she was undernourished because I had no stomach acid and I don't think either of us were getting the nutrients we needed. She thrived over time with breast milk, nursing constantly those first months but quickly developed good hunger/fullness signals and doesn't overeat. She's almost 8 and is around 50 pounds. This poor kid seems to have some kind of major metabolic problem or condition and I'm sure that the three large bowls of rice every meal is not helping his hunger level. My blood sugar would be insane on that diet!

    If I ate that much rice I could be a sumo wrestler.
    In all of the universe there is only one person with your exact charateristics. Just like there is only one person with everybody else's characteristics. Effectively, your uniqueness makes you pretty average.
