Susanne Eman, a 728-pound Arizona woman wants to weigh 1,600 lbs!
She's chomping away at 20,000 calories of food, per day, to get to her goal.
(The average female adult eats between 2,200-2,800 food calories per day).
Susanne's a growing number of a new category of "Super Sized" women called, Super Size Big Beautiful Women (SSBBW) who believed that the more weight they gain, the better they look.
What is astounding is that according to Susanne, a lot more men are expressing an interest in her, now that she's gained more weight!
(Yeah, they're probably seeing the writing on the wall and looking at the possible "cha ching" they'd receive from book deals re being married to a SSBBW!)
Well, of course doctors say that she's eating her way to her death, but she doesn't care.
What would you do if Susanne was your mom or relative...how would you respond to her attempt at food-suicide?
Please read more about Susanne's incredible story, here.
