A fitness fanatic dad is derided as ‘insane’ for bragging that his eight-month-old son is ‘skinny’ because he ‘doesn’t eat a processed slut’ and only gets eggs, fruits and vegetables.
Jrey, a bodybuilder from Fort Collins, Colorado, regularly shares gym selfies and workout photos that show off his muscular physique, but the father of one recently went viral on Twitter for sharing an analysis of his little boy’s diet.
Jrey listed the healthy foods he and his partner fed their son and insisted that this is why the baby is so ‘skinny’ and ‘handsome’ – leading Twitter users to ridicule him for bragging about something so bizarre and passed into own body problems to his son.
Controversial: Jrey, a bodybuilder from Fort Collins, Colorado, tweeted about his eight-month-old baby’s diet, including fruits, eggs, and vegetables he mixes
Reasoning: He insisted that that’s why the baby is so “skinny” and “pretty.”
Earlier this week, Jrey tweeted not his own daily diet, but that of his eight-month-old son.
“We feed our son: whole eggs, whole fruits, whole vegetables, H20,” he wrote. “We usually grind his vegetables / proteins until he can chew on his own.”
He also boasted that his son is in the 99th percentile for height and head size, and 70th percentile for weight.
‘He’s thin [because] he doesn’t eat processed s ***, ”he wrote. “And extraordinarily handsome.”
Jrey’s tweet quickly went viral, with commenters deriding his bragging rights about his ‘skinny’ son as ‘the weirdest flex ever’.
‘Brother no one but you care if your baby is skinny or not. It’s a baby, ‘wrote one commenter.
He wrote: ‘We feed our son: whole eggs, whole fruits, whole vegetables, H20. We usually grind his vegetables / proteins until he can chew himself ‘

Pass it on: Several denounced Jrey for focusing too much on what his baby’s body looks like, and insisted that he should give the child’s body image issues.
“Congratulations on your, uh,” skinny baby, “something normal to have and brag about,” wrote another.
“Same” physique “of almost every other 8-month-old on the planet, but sure,” tweeted another.
Several people blamed Jrey for focusing too much on what his baby’s body looks like, and insisted that he would create body image issues for the child.
‘My parents did that to me too. Now I am fit AND depressed, ‘one wrote.
It’s cool to share body dysmorphism with your kids. They’ll really appreciate fighting through puberty, ‘tweeted another.
“Is it just me or does this baby look like literally every other baby on Earth who isn’t currently being cared for to have an eating disorder?” asked another.
Many also pointed out that Jrey’s son’s diet is hardly revolutionary – and that mixed fruits and vegetables are just homemade baby food.

According to WebMDbabies as young as eight months should have been introduced to solids, but they should also consume 24 to 32 ounces of formula or breast milk every day.
It’s unclear if Jrey’s baby is also drinking, as he didn’t mention them in the tweet.
Eight-month-olds can also eat baby cereal, fruits, vegetables, and mashed or mashed meats.
Twitter users also argued that baby’s weight is highly dependent on genetics.
Others talked about Jrey’s baby the way one bodybuilding guy would do to another, with one joke: “he’s skipping leg day.”
“How much does your child lift?” one asked.
‘I feed my 8 month old red bull and taco bell. he’s four feet tall and would easily beat your kid in a hand-to-hand fight, ”another joked.
“I am stronger than that baby and I only eat processed food,” said another.
