    Uaina Pupulu says he is addicted to food and, at his heaviest, he tipped the scales at 300 kgs. In a brave and rare insight, this father of five has allowed Sunday’s cameras to capture his struggle and his surgery, as he attempts to lose weight and live a normal life. It’s been difficult for Uaina, but he wants the nation to see his reality, and to bring obesity into the spotlight, as health experts become increasingly concerned about the disease in our communities, saying it’s misunderstood and ignored.
