This youngster's amazing weight loss transformation is inspiring people all around the world.

In 2016 Indonesian student Aria Permana made international headlines due to his weight as a 10-year-old

He’s now posted the before-and-after footage on Instagram, where he has 350 000 followers.

Reports said the teenager, who hails from the Karawang region east of the capital Jakarta, weighed 190kg when he was 10.

With the guidance of Indonesian bodybuilder Ade Rai and a group of health professionals the teen has reportedly managed to shed around 107kg.

Now weighing just 83kg, Aria also teamed his strict training regime with a healthy diet and medical treatment.

His father, Ade Somantri, said medical treatment, dieting and a strict exercise routine had helped his son lose so much weight.

“Aria managed to lose weight through bariatric surgery, diet and regular exercise. For me, they’re all good and supportive of each other,” Ade said.

Local media have reported that the teenager will undergo surgery later this year to remove excess skin.

His story has been widely circulated on social media and many Indonesians are said to be drawing inspiration from it to help them get into shape.
