23-year-old Tammy Jung force-feeds herself about 5,000 calories every day in order to gain as much weight as possible. The Los Angeles native currently weighs around 230 lbs and hopes to reach her goal of 420 lbs by the end of next year. Jung, with the help of her boyfriend Johan Uberman, wants to become a Big Beautiful Woman (BBW) model, thus becoming somewhat of an Internet sex symbol.
These types of models cater to people with a "fat fetish." Though she already has a number of followers on her website, Tammy hopes to gain her weight and eventually earn up to $3,100 a month. Her videos consist of eating, tummy rubbing and poses; all while Tammy is in bikinis or similar outfits.
"I start the day with a huge breakfast of waffles, cream cheese, bacon and sausage then head to McDonalds for a few burgers in the afternoon," Jung explained. "I can snack on cheese all day, a couple of blocks is no problem, then for dinner I'll either eat pizzas or make Mexican food."
Throughout her inteview with Barcroft Media, Jung insists that she has never been happier, though she admits that she gets full. When this happens, her boyfriend makes her a special weight-gain milkshake that he then pours into a funnel for her to consume.
"The funnel forces me to drink the shake even when I'm full after a day of eating," Jung said.
Ultimately, Jung is basically force-feeding herself so that she can reach her goal weight. She said that it is all for her fans. "My career ambition is to become as popular as possible," she proudly said.
According to Barcroft Media: Tammy's doctor has warned her to stop to avoid shortening her life but she refuses to listen to health advice.
