Caitlin became an online supersize sensation and many of her fans tuned in to watch her eating. According to Caitlin, devouring 3 pizzas, 4 double cheeseburgers, 2 orders of fries, 2 liters of soda and 2-3 milkshakes in one sitting was as easy as pie!

For Caitlin, overeating is not a disorder, as she embraces it as a means of making money. She disclosed that she easts 10,000 calories per day so that she can become one of the most successful super size big beautiful women (SSBBW) in history!

Caitlin is keen on adding even more weight!

But isn’t she worried that her health is at risk? According to Caitlin, who stands at 4 feet and 11 inches, with a BMI of 80, she is very healthy and her blood pressure is “athletic perfection."

I’m not going to say that eating 3 pizzas, 4 burgers, fries and a frosty is going to make you live to be a 100 but if that’s what makes you happy, whatever, you know?

By the time she featured on the show, Caitlin planned to hit 500lbs by the time she is 30 when she’ll have a BMI of over 100.

My Long-term goal is to be as big as physically possible without being bed-bound.

According to her mom, who supports her a lot, even doubling as her photographer, Caitlin’s “career path” is as good as any.

I’m proud of her for following her goals, for doing what she wants to do, not what other people think she should do.

How to deal with eating disorders

While Caitlin’s story is surely unique, it’s no secret that overeating poses a great danger to our well-being. For those who have suffered from eating disorders, it is a tough problem to tackle since as much as we try, food remains a necessity for our survival.

Experts advise that overcoming eating disorders requires discipline since one has to unlearn their bad habits of eating. This means finding new ways of dealing with stress aside from eating as well as revising our attitudes on body image and weight.

To truly overcome weight issues, we need to listen to our feelings, our bodies, and most importantly, we need to accept and love ourselves. Additionally, with help and support from people around us, we can conquer weight issues and live happy lives.
