Donna Simpson Eats 30,000 Calorie Christmas Feast
You may remember Donna Simpson, a 600-pound New Jersey woman who became a media star earlier this year when she announced that she hoped to eat her way to 1,000 pounds. Well, she's still working at it, and her Christmas feast will certainly help her achieve her disturbing goal.
According to a report in London's Daily Mail, this is what she ate on Saturday:
Two 25-pound turkeys, two maple-glazed hams, 15-pounds of potatoes, five loaves of bread, five pounds of herb stuffing, four pints of gravy and four pints of cranberry dressing. Don't worry, she did get her fill of healthy vegetables as well: 20-pounds worth.
Then there was dessert, of course -- a "salad" made of marshmallow, cream cheese, whipped cream and cookies.
That's a total of 30,000 calories. Simpson downed it all in two hours.
The 46-year-old Simpson defended her meal, which cost around $230, by saying, "I eat as much as I want, whenever I want but at this time of year I really go all out. Christmas should give you carte blanche to do whatever you want."
Simpson now weighs close to 650-pounds, and hopes to one day be the Guinness World Record holder for fattest woman. She already is in the record book for being the fattest mother, giving birth in 2007 while weighing 520 pounds.
Simpson actually makes money off of being fat, getting paid to make public appearances and running a Web site where people can pay to watch her eat.
"I love eating and people love watching me eat," the single mother of two said. "It makes people happy, and I'm not harming anyone."
