Suzanne Eman switched from a diet 20000 calories a day to 30,000 “to get bigger for the wedding!”
Susanne Eman, 32, aims to reach 115st by her forties by consuming enough food to fill six supermarket trolleys every week. The single mother-of two has already passed the previous living record holder – American Donna Simpson, 43, or New Jersey – who tipped the scales at 50st.
Despite the huge rolls of fat enveloping her body, Miss Eman, from Casa Grande, Arizona, US, insists that she feels healthy and more attractive in her rotund state. Miss Eman, who poses as a model for supersize websites, said: “The bigger I get, the better I feel. I feel confident and sexy. “Two years ago I hit 35st and noticed I had actually started attracting more men. It made me feel good.
“My goal is to be 57st by the end of the year. I should be 115st by age 41 or 42.
“Why not see how fat I can get? I want to break the stigma that being fat is a bad thing.
“I’d love to find out if it’s humanly possible to reach a ton.”
Miss Eman visits the supermarket once a month with her sons Gabriel, 16, and Brendin, 12, and spends up to eight hours filling six trolleys.
“It’s like a full day’s work,” said Miss Eman, who uses a motorised scooter to get around.
The unemployed mother – who cannot work because of her weight – claims she stays active by doing simple exercises and having regular health checks.
“I go for a waddle and do stretches and exercises every day. My muscles need to hold up to my weight, so I have to stay strong,” she said.
“I take my blood pressure once a week, and every day, after I exercise, I take readings of my other vitals. I use a pulse oximeter to measure the concentration of oxygen in my blood stream.
“And I take my blood sugar levels just like a diabetic. If either of the readings go above a certain level, I’ll immediately contact my doctor for advice.”
She has pledged to continue working towards her goal despite warnings from her doctor that the experiment could kill her.
Dr Patrick Flite said: “She’s really playing Russian roulette with her life with this goal. There are well-documented complications that come with morbid obesity.
“I would never encourage anyone to be doing what Susanne is doing.”
Dr Flite said Susanne’s medical checks showed no current problems, adding: “She’s capable of making her own decisions. I don’t see any psychiatric problems or anything else wrong.”
