Katie Price reveals Harvey has lost a stone but his 28st weight is still ‘life threatening’ | The Sun
KATIE Price has revealed son Harvey has lost a stone – but his weight is still "life threatening".
The former glamour model, 44, shared a sweet clip of her son eating a place of chopped carrots as she spoke about his new diet and fitness routine.
Harvey – who suffers from Prader Willi Syndrome, blindness and autism – could be seen enjoying the snack and told fans: "I'm feeling healthy eating carrots!"
Katie was proud of her son for losing a stone after he reached 29st last year – but shared her fears about his "life-threatening" weight.
She wrote: "I'm so proud of Harvey he has lost a stone now and his college are doing amazing trying to keep him active and healthy eating as it's now become life threatening with his weight #lovemyson."
Katie has previously said her son had started a new diet after fears he'd "die" if he didn't lose weight.

Speaking to OK! the mum-of-five said: "He did lose a bit of weight in the beginning when he first started, but now that he’s settled he’s putting it back on.
"Like I said about him smashing up his room, I think he feels very comfortable there now.
"He’s very clever and he knows what he does and doesn’t want – especially when it comes to food."
Last year, Katie revealed that Harvey had lost weight after moving into his own house as she "keeps the kitchen cupboards empty".

At the time, the mother-of-five explained how Harvey had moved into his own house opposite from the family pad so that he can experience independence before making the move to a residential college in September.
And the decision has made a world of difference to Harvey, who is much "calmer" without the noise of his siblings, and has even shed some pounds.
Appearing on Loose Women, Katie explained: "I really don't want to upset Harvey and you have to do transitions slowly, I want it to be fun for him.
"Now he's in the house opposite, obviously not on his own, and I've got cameras everywhere, he's on his iPad, and obviously I am there all the time as well, but it gives him his own space and independence.
"I think he's actually lost weight because when he's in the actual household, I've said before, he's quite disruptive in the night because he goes in the cupboards and eats the food – that's his Prader-Willi Syndrome.
"But in that house, I don't put anything in the cupboards that he can get, so he can't have a snack in the night because there's nothing there for him to snack on! I think he has lost weight."
In December 2020, Katie shared her fears for Harvey with The Sun as she revealed that he was tipping the scales at almost 29 stone and could die.
The teen was born with a complex variety of disabilities, including Prader-Willi, which causes an excessive appetite.
It can impact muscle tone and functions of the nervous system and sparks the constant desire to eat.

Katie previously told The Sun: “It’s a cruel illness. He feels hungry all the time.
“Every time I feed him, it’s killing him. Even though it makes him happy, it’s cruel of me to do it.
“He needs to lose weight or he’ll end up dead. He doesn’t deserve that. I don’t want to lose him."
