Tammy Jung, a 23-year-old from Los Angeles, has gained 200 pounds in an effort to become a star as a Big Beautiful Woman.
Jung started at 112 pounds and is hoping to reach 420 pounds by force-feeding herself 5,000 a calories day — more than twice the daily recommended value. Jung’s diet includes blocks of cheese, dozens of donuts, and milkshakes poured down her throat by her boyfriend, 28-year-old Johan Uberman.
Jung has been warned that her diet is putting her health at risk, but she doesn’t care.
“I’ve never been happier than I am working to put on weight – nothing will stop me achieving my dream,” Jung said. “I know it’s controversial, but it’s no one else’s business. Eating makes me happy.”
Jung said her day starts with a “huge breakfast of waffles, cream cheese, bacon and sausage then head to McDonalds for a few burgers in the afternoon.” For dinner, she eats pizza or Mexican food.
“At the end of the day I make a weight gain shake from heavy whip cream and a whole tub of ice cream, which Johan feeds me through a funnel,” she said. “The funnel forces me to drink the shake even when I’m full after a day of eating.”
Jung used to play volleyball and soccer but began gaining weight after she quit the sports. She said she was in denial at first, but one day she looked in the mirror and “felt great about it.”
“My body looks so sexy, and I feel more womanly the heavier I got.”
Jung said she often records herself eating for fans, and that she often gets requests to weigh herself on camera. At this point, she said, she’s earning about $1,500 a month but hopes to make even more.
Jung is far from shy about her body, sharing photos on several social networking sites and offering web cams on several different sites as well. On Facebook, she has almost 5,000 friends.
For his part, Uberman said he doesn’t mind the attention his girlfriend of eight months gets from other men or how much weight she gains.
“I would love her no matter what she looked like,” he said.
Jung’s family doesn’t know about her goal, although they have commented on her weight gain. She said they most likely wouldn’t approve, but she’s making a living and supporting herself doing something she loves.
