A 43 stone woman is determined to almost double her weight to 71 stone in order to claim the Guinness World Record for the fattest woman. She hopes to reach her desired weight within two years.
Donna Simpson, from New jersey, is already an XXXXXXXL, needs a mobility scooter to go shopping, can’t walk more than 20 feet without a rest and needed a team of thirty medics to deliver her daughter by Caesarean section.
To achieve her goal, Donna will be eating 12,000 calories per day (normal is 2,000) and her weekly shopping bill is around $750. To help fund her project she runs a website where people can watch her eat! Her favourite food is sushi and she can munch her way through seventy pieces in one sitting.
