More than five years ago, the issue of “Let them talk” was released with the participation of the boy Yaroslav, who was obese. We decided to find out how a teenager lives years later.
Yaroslav Mokhov is a boy from Pyatigorsk. It was no coincidence that he appeared on the TV show: Yarik, together with his mother Lyudmila Kalyuzhnova, turned to television with a cry for help. A seven-year-old schoolboy at seven weighed as much as 78 kilograms, which was almost three times the age norm.
Interesting fact! Mokhov’s father appeared in the studio of the show, leaving the family when his son was only a few months old. The man claimed that Yarik’s overweight was to blame for his grandmother and mother feeding him. But they denied their guilt.
Desperate, Lyudmila began to turn to various authorities to help her son.
The cries for help were noticed by the editors of the famous TV show. The host Malakhov supported the hero of the program, like many guests. The boy was given a free examination in one of the best clinics in the capital. There they revealed the pathology of the kidney, which provoked weight gain. Mokhov was prescribed treatment, exercise and a new diet with fasting days. After two weeks in the hospital, the body weight finally began to decrease.
The guest of the show was a businesswoman from Kazan. The owner of the SPA center Elena Temirgalieva presented Yaroslav with Scandinavian walking poles and a subscription for a three-week stay in the sanatorium. But during this period, Mokhov lost weight slightly.
Then his fellow countryman, the famous Pyatigorsk blogger Dmitry Mayer, decided to take on the fate of a boy with third-degree obesity. He admitted that, as a child, he himself had problems with weight, suffered from peer ridicule. The guy became the curator of Mokhov: he compiled a menu for him, signed him up in the pool and the gym, and even trained with the boy.
Yaroslav not only went in for sports regularly, but also ate right: he ate cereal for breakfast, dined on vegetables and steam cutlets or meat, and for dinner he was content with a light salad. The only thing the teenager could not refuse was sweets. But Mokhov allows himself no more than one or two pieces in the morning.
For three months of active collaboration with Mayer, the boy threw off 20 kilograms! And he does not intend to stop, because the ultimate goal has not yet been achieved. But Yaroslav already feels much better and more confident. He gained the respect of classmates and new friends. This kid is sure to have it all!
