'World's Heaviest Woman' Title Sought

The "feeder" community (a subculture of men who love large women) may soon hear about Suzanne Eman, who is attempting to establish her reputation as a serious "gainer".


(Suzanne Eman aims at one ton)

Eman, a 728-pound woman in Casa Grande, Ariz., is attempting to get into Guinness World Records as the "World's Heaviest Woman," and hopes to reach her goal by the time she's 41.

Eman is chowing down on nearly 22,000 calories daily, including six eggs scrambled in butter, a half-pound of bacon, four potatoes, six pieces of buttered toast and a 32-ounce shake -- and that's just for breakfast.

Her ultimate goal: to weigh one ton.

Science fiction writers have already explored this area. In his 1952 novella Abercrombie Station, sf Grandmaster Jack Vance writes about an entire community of obese men and women who have found the perfect environment for being fat - free fall.

When Jean, a young woman of normal girth, first arrives in the weightless environs of the orbiting Abercrombie Station, she can't believe what she is seeing.

Fat women, like bladder-fish in an aquarium tank. Fat women, round and tender as yellow peaches. Fat women, miraculously easy and agile in the absence of gravity. The occasion seemed to be an afternoon musicale. The hall was crowded and heavy with balls of pink flesh draped in blouses and pantaloons of white, pale blue and yellow.

The current Abercrombie fashion seemed designed to accent the round bodies. Flat bands like Sam Browne belts molded the breasts down and out, under the arms... Flesh, bulbs of tender flesh, smooth shiny balloons... On Earth, any one of these women would have sat immobile, a pile of sagging, sweating tissue. At Abercrombie Station, the so-called "Adipose Alley" - they moved with the ease of dandelion puffs, and their faces and bodies were smooth as butterballs.
