Obese model Susanne Eman is bidding to become the world’s fattest woman.
Susanne aims to balloon from 330kg (52st) to a record 730kg (115st) – and beyond – by gorging on 20,000 calories a day.
The 32-year-old, who is a hit among fans of ‘super size big beautiful women’, said: ‘The bigger I get, the better I feel. I feel more confident and sexy. Why shouldn’t I push the limits and see how fat I can get and stay healthy? I’d love to find out if it’s humanly possible to reach a tonne.’
The single mother of two, from Arizona, aims to hit her target weight in ten years.
She visits the supermarket once a month with sons Gabriel,16, and Brendin, 12, and spends up to eight hours filling six trollies.
‘It’s like a full day’s work,’ she said.
She uses a motorised scooter, but astonishingly believes she can stay healthy.
If I was to get sick, I’ve arranged for my sister to take care of my kids,’ she said.
‘I haven’t gone near the danger zones yet though.’
She was ‘playing Russian roulette with her life’, said GP Dr Patrick Flite.
But her medical checks showed no current problems, he added.
