At 43 stone and still growing Donna Simpson from New Jersey is hoping to become the world’s fattest woman. Donna insists that she is perfectly healthy despite the fact she now has to rely on a mobility scooter to do the shopping. It is her goal to try and reach a weight of 71 stone within the next two years which will break the record. She currently eats around 12,000 calories a day compared to the average recommended amount for a woman which is just 2,000 and spends $750 a week on food. She runs a website where men pay to watch her eat which brings in money to fund the food bill.
