7-Year-old Publishes Book About Obesity

Post By RelatedRelated Post



At just seven-years-old, LaNiyah is a published author. But it’s her latest effort, a book about obesity, that’s closet to her heart.

After rapidly gaining weight when she was just three, her parents consulted her pediatrician and put little LaNiyah on a strict diet. When she continued to gain weight despite being on the diet, LaNiyah’s parents knew something was wrong. Now at seven, LaNiyah weighs in at over 100 pounds, and her unexplained weight gain has caused her to be the victim of taunting and name-calling.

To handle the bullying related to her weight, LaNiyah and her mom wrote a book entitled Not Fat Because I Wanna Be to help other kids deal with being overweight. LaNiyah says she wrote the book because she wants “people to learn that bullying isn’t cool to do to other people,” and she hopes her book will make a difference.

With childhood obesity reaching epic porportions, many kids will be able to relate to LaNiyah’s story.

  1. Cut off the EBT, WIC and other gibsmedat and the nigletpotomous would not be “obese”. I see four hundred pound sowpotomouses knuckle dragging around in the stores until they get a scooter to park their groidnormous asses on because they are too lazy to knuckle drag. They fill the cart on the scooter, which is whining in protest from their weight and can barely move, up with all forms of “junk food” and then use their EBT aka MY tax dollars to pay for it. The only comfort I find in this is that they will die quicker from diabetes, heart attacks, strokes, etc.

    Niggers do not write. The closest they come to “writing” is the marks they leave in the dirt from a stick while digging for bugs to eat in the muddaland. Maybe this “magical” fat niglet should go to the muddaland where they are starving. it will either lose the weight or end up in a ghetto lobstah pot feeding a nigger fambly of eight.

  2. If you can not help the problem then you must be the propblem. If we spent as much time helping other people as we do talking about them this would be a better world.
    For 5 years I worked with Food Stamps and most of my clients were WHITE, WITH ANIMALS IN THERE HOUSES AND CHLDREN PLAYING OUTSIDE WITH SHOES, but I was there to help not JUDGE.
    I feel like this ShayNay NayNot has a problem that only the Lord can Fix, because it looks like this person is a BULLY.

    • Yeah Shay nay nay is racist and a jerk. But i’m proud of the little girl wanted to change our world. Hell theres nothing wrong with an african-american child especially one so young wanting to let others know bout obesity. Heck im writing a book too but anyway For shay nay nay’s information: black people can read and write so fuck off and get a life!

  3. It’s amazing how someone can always find something negative to say about a child struggling with obesity. If you haven’t read the book and gotten all the information, you are really showing your ignorance. I’m pretty sure that your tax dollars are enough to feed a FAMILY of eight or as your wrote a fambly of eight. If you receive a tax refund each year then I know it doesn’t. As someone who has to pay back each year, I don’t have a problem assisting a family in need. I don’t have a problem with any of my tax dollars going to EBT or WIC. One thing I know for sure what goes arounds comes around. You may one day need someone to show you some compassion.

  4. @ Educated

    How can you not have a problem with your hard-earned tax dollars going to feed people who in large numbers do nothing but drop out of school, go in and out of jail, and breed?

  5. @ Jack Johnson & ShayNayNayNot….Be careful what you say! Not all people who need food are the way YOU categorize them. I totally understand what “Educated” is saying….if you can help someone who needs it, DO SO. There will ALWAYS be those included who “get by” because they choose not to work or just lie around; however, it isn’t one particular race…EVERY RACE HAS ‘EM….believe it or not!! If you really want to go there, “one” race does supercede the others in receiving benefits and guess what????…it’s not the ones who were brought over on ships or those whose land was taken from them! Let’s not be so quick to condemn because WIC and EBT is not something that will be eliminated regardless of “who” receives or “why” it’s received!……wow…some opinions really make me wonder what many households raise their kids when they were coming up? …many of you CHOOSE to argue the point about everything when you really don’t and won’t have control over the issue….
