Tiny size 8 woman mocked for being too slim now scoffs 8,000 calories a day… and is still hungry
A tiny woman with a huge appetite has started scoffing 8,000 calories a day… so she can pile ON the pounds.
Emma Dalton, 25, is a minute size eight and has a tiny 24 inch waste but puts away a whopping two kilos of chocolate, 500 grams of cheese and 26 pieces of fruit and veg a day.
And the 5ft 2inch account manager, from Bromsgrove, Worcs, is so ravenous she’s even started a woman campaign to triumph over every eating challenge in the UK.
After having always been called lanky at school, Emma’s fascination with food started when she experienced the giant portions across the pond on holiday in the States in July.
She decided to up her calorie intake in a bid to bulk up and prove the bullies wrong and began loading her diet with carbs, sweets and mountains of fruit and veg.
Emma said: “I’d always had a big appetite but I went on holiday to America earlier this year and realised I was actually a mega eater!
“Now I eat four times what the average woman eats – it’s just part of my daily life.”
Her constant snacking means she and boyfriend Dave spend a whopping £100 a week on food.
And Emma often finds herself heading back to the shops after work to stock up on fridge essentials that she has munched her way through.
She’s happy to tuck into a double dinner of two servings of lasagne and pudding, and then follow her meal with 10 cookies, two chocolate brownies and four muffins and a slice of cheesecake for good measure.
Dinner is always followed up with 20 pieces of fruit, another giant plate of vegetables and multiple snacking cheese portions.
But Emma is still just a size eight and weighs eight and a half stone.
She’s also decided to put her limitless stomach to good use and take on eating challenges around the country.
She has a 100% record in her “woman v food” battles since starting while on holiday in Orlando, Florida.
Emma said: “I tried out an eating competition in America and no-one could believe that someone so tiny had finished everything, and was ready for dessert!
“I’ve always thought of myself as too skinny and I got a lot of stick at school.
“Even though I’m eating so much now, I’ve only put on a little bit of weight but I actually feel healthier than ever.
“And I really could just keep on eating. It’s 8,000 calories and then some!
“It costs a lot to feed me though and I have to constantly top up our cupboards.
“But I love the fact that I can turn up to a restaurant, order their biggest super-size meal and wolf it down with no problem.
“There are 30stone blokes that are beaten by them and I just don’t seem to have a problem!”
