Woman on a Mission to Gain 800 pounds

August 22, 2011

Many women spend a lot of time and money trying to lose weight, but there is one woman who is on a mission to do the exact opposite. Her name is Susanne Essman, and she is consuming a 20,000 calorie a day diet, so that she can become the heaviest woman ever.

Susanne claims that the heavier she becomes, the sexier that she feels. She currently weighs 720 lbs, but wants to go up to 1,600 lbs.

Her dinner consists of 12 tacos. a two-liter bottle of soda, eight scoops of ice-cream and a pan of brownies.

As a nutritionist, I find her plan to be quite dangerous. The human body simply isn't designed to carry that much of a load around. In addition to the burden to her organs, there is also the issue of toxicity. Toxins store in the fat cells and since she is so many processed foods, she's also ingesting a lot of toxins. Her risk of diabetes, heart disease, and any number of other illnesses will continue to rise as her weight does.

I do hope that Susanne will reconsider this lethal plan, if not for herself, then for her two kids.

Unfortunately, when this sort of things happen, as you say, the body is not meant to support all that weight.....things begin to break down and the becomes unable to work....goes on disability and begins a vicious cycle......all of this to feel sexy?.....I don't think so!

I would hope that Guinness would discontinue this category or disallow anyone who deliberately goes after this title.

I sure hope that she is not supplemented by any taxpayer assisted programs like: Foodstamps, Welfare, Medicare or Medicade. I also hope that she is audited by the federal government and has to pay taxes on the "gifts" she receives in financial support online. With millions of people starving and hungry in this world- she is truly a pig of a woman. I hope that your post does not contribute to her cause in any way shape or form. What a selfish, indulgent and inconsiderent sub-human being!

This is a rare condition called, attention-getalife-I'vegotnothingbettertodowithmylife-onioitous. It comes in many forms and is normally cured by ignoring the condition. Let her get on with it, it seems to me that if she is prepared to go through with this nonsense, then she's happy to die.

How sad that she doesn't give any thought to how this will affect her boys...

So sad... Please put this on your status if you know or are related to someone who suffers from stupidity. People need to understand that stupidity is real and should be taken seriously. You could be sitting next to a stupid person right now. There is still no known cure for stupidity and sympathy does not help. Sometimes a 2x4 to the back of the head helps, but not a lot. But we can raise awareness.

Well said and sometimes even a 2x4 doesn't help

This is astounding and shameful -- for her kids, and for her. There are people starving in this world and I think what she is doing is very morally corrupt.

Sounds like she's suffering from some type of mental illness.
