Muscle-Building Workout and Diet


[Narrator] At his heaviest, Jacob Miller was 15
years old, and tipped the scales at more than 700
pounds. His family feared he wouldn’t make it to
his 16th birthday. His organs might fail first. Jacob had always been a big kid. At
1-year-old he weighed fifty two pounds. Doctors couldn’t pinpoint exactly what
was making him gain so much weight so fast. It wasn’t just food. You know, Jacob really came to us with what I would say is a very unique form of childhood obesity. Genetics had some part to play. Jacob’s dad is 6’8 and 450
pounds and had been a college football star. [Jacob’s Father] As big as I am, I know that that’s not normal. [Narrator] Jacob inherited the height and weight without the athleticism. By the time he was a teenager, he was nearly 6’5 and something of a giant, but the weight was killing him. None of our body systems were made for that kind of weight. He struggled with bullying, depression, and an ultimatum: change his lifestyle or give up on life. [Jacob’s Mother] He can’t go 10 to 15 years because the rate he’s growing. [Narrator] His desire to change was how he ended up at Cincinnati Children’s where he began his transformation. He and his family decided gastric bypass surgery could help save his life, and Jake proved in the summer of 2013 that he could lose 60 pounds on his own before surgery. Then, he became one of the largest teens
to ever go under the knife for weight loss surgery. [Jacob’s Mother] This time around, I don’t know if it
just clicked in his head or what, but he’s ready. [Narrator] Every day since has been a
journey to stay on the right course. Are you measuring your portions? [Jacob] I’ve had a couple issues, but I’ve slipped off the road but got right back on. [Narrator] His care team says surgery help save his life. We’re not looking at just a two-year fix. But it’s up to him to continue the battle. [Jacob’s Father] He’s still a kid, but he has to realize that I can’t do it for you. You have to do it yourself. [Jacob] I have now officially lost over 100
pounds. I am really proud of myself, actually. You have lost 150 pounds! Watch Jacob’s story, hear his video diary
entries, and see how far he’s come in the video documentary, Crushing Weight, at cincinnatichildren’s.org/crushing-weight

  5. Wait wait, they’re saying they don’t know what caused his weight gain? The only way to gain weight is by eating too much. There’s no other reason. You can’t gain weight out of thin air. The fact that he’s tall is just an excuse. His parents did this to him by over feeding him.

  6. Omg I’m crying right now 😭😭 and if you ever read this I want you to know kids and mean and if the bully it’s because they also have insecurities or problems and I swear to you if I went to your school I would never let them bully you 💗you are so Beautiful and don’t let anyone bring you down
