Meet the plus-size woman who eats 10,000 calories a day on camera for her online fans
A 33 stone plus-size fetish model has managed to gain an army of online fans by uploading live videos of herself gorging over 10,000 calories a day.
Amanda Faye, a 25-year-old woman from southern California, became engaged with the 'feederism' fetish due to her boyfriend, who had a kink for watching women gain weight.
Having been trying all her life to lose weight in a bid to conform to her peers, Amanda realised that her partner's appreciation for her larger frame gave her a major self-esteem boost.
Encouraged by her boyfriend, she sought out other outlets to share her overeating on. She started out on Feabie, a social network for feedees and feeders, then created her own Tumblr page and Instagram account. Soon, she'd amassed over 50,000 followers, and has now managed to turn her binge eating into a source of income.
Amanda now makes most of her cash via paid promotions on Instagram and Patreon, charging $10 for access to all her videos and photos, $20 for access to her Snapchat and $50 for a FaceTime call.
Commenting on her career in a recent interview, Amanda stated:
"I get the typical insults – fat cow, Shamu, like the killer whale, or lard a*se. I’m a very positive person, so I generally ignore it, or leave a playful comment back. Body positivity is such a controversial topic and no matter what I say, there will always be people with their swords drawn, ready to fight me on this, so I’ll keep it simple – everybody and everybody is beautiful. There shouldn’t be any shame in celebrating that, from hairy legs to flat tummies and back rolls to saggy breasts.
"I was shy about feederism at first. But, as time went on, it felt more like my calling and slowly but surely, I fell in love with the community ... I do stuffing videos, where I eat massive amounts of food, funnel feeding videos, where I funnel down liquids through a tube and weight gain shake chug, where I down large amounts of liquid in little time, so my belly looks even more swollen. This is all as well as other fat fetish content, including fantasy talk or playing with my belly."
"I get tonnes of interesting questions and requests when it comes to food. I feel the most popular food people enjoy seeing me eat is Taco Bell, burgers and fruit ... One guy paid me to eat 13 pears and crack open a coconut to drink its milk while half-naked on camera. I love creative and interesting ideas, so my job is never boring. Personally, I don’t find it difficult to maintain my size for my followers. I’m naturally a bigger girl, so as long as I continue to eat well, I easily stay fluffy and gain for my fans."
Although Amanda is often harassed by trolls, she believes that her ardent fans and the praise they give her make up for the bullies. Amanda has vowed to feed and believes that she's championing body positivity.
"As long as you’re being true to yourself," she says, "nothing else matters."
