My husband and I have been separated for a few years and our ds has gone from chubby to fat to obese. His diet at his dads house is fast food, processed food and high sugar junk food. He complains all the time that he is tired and refuses to exercise and throws tantrums if I don't give him the junk he wants. Now his dad has given him an app to order food and he is constantly having late night deliveries of massive fast food orders. When I asked him about it he said he wants to be like Nikocado but wouldn't explain what that meant. I don't know what to do as usually I'm asleep when he is getting these food orders. Please help me with my nearly 300 lb son!

Thank you Jesse. That is good to know. My son is with his dad over the holidays. I do not want to think about all the junk he will eat there. How do I get my son to stop obsessing ober this disgustingly fat youtube person?

Go to YouTube and search for Nikocado Avocado. He's a mukbanger who has a huge following. He and his partner Orlin eat huge amounts of fast food and there's a lot of staged drama. The thing is that both of them started their YouTube channel 5 years ago and were slender. Now they're both over 300 pounds and Nikocado does weigh ins and he brags he's 360 pounds. I checked him out because my son and his friends watch him too. He's definitely not a good role model for teens. I explained to my son how Nikocado makes money from every time someone watches one of his posts and how his excessive eating is going to affect his health. Just to warn you if your son says he wants to be like Nikocado.

His dad set up his credit card on his phone. He isn't big himself though. I've tried repeatedly to make him see that he is eating himself into an early grave but he won't listen. He seemed proud when he came back from his dad's and had a sleep apnea machine "just like Nikocado".

Where does he get the money to pay for all of that food? Is his father letting him buy it? He a big guy too?
