Authorities in New Zealand have told a South African chef he is too fat to be allowed to live in the country.

Immigration officials said Albert Buitenhuis, who weighs 130kg (286 pounds), did not have "an acceptable standard of health".

He now faces expulsion despite shedding 30kg since he moved to the city of Christchurch six years ago.

New Zealand has one of the highest obesity rates in the developed world, with nearly 30% of people overweight.

Mr Buitenhuis and his wife, Marthie, moved from South Africa to Christchurch in 2007. At the time, the chef weighed 160kg.

Until now, their annual work visas had been renewed with "very little problem", his wife said.

"We applied year after year and there were no issues," she said.

"They never mentioned Albert's weight or his health once and he was a lot heavier then."

But in early May, the couple was told their work visas had been declined because of Mr Buitenhuis's weight.

I guess that's one way to skew the NZ metrics back in line.

Of course they won't turn away someone for being HIV+

That would be discriminatory.

We would have to deport 50% of the customers in every WALMART store in the country.

Where would we export all that blubber to?

There's something going on here.

If he was not meeting the standard of health, they would have never let him in in the first place, when he first arrived in 2007, because he was much fatter then.

Pretty fuckin close. 265 last I weighed in.

Do I look obese?

You have to take in body type. Muscle is a lot heavier than fat. Not that I couldn't loose a few pounds of fat.
But my point is, don't take everything like this at face value.
