A woman who spent years deliberately gaining weight has lost 16 stone after splitting with her “feeder” boyfriend.
Patty Sanchez went from 51.5 stone to 34 stone after breaking away from the encouragement of eating from her former boyfriend and online fans. She said that "90 per cent of their relationship revolved around eating".
Ms Sanchez from Nevada in the US used to consume up to 13,000 calories a day.
After breaking up with her partner, the mother-of-four decided to change her diet and lifestyle after becoming "tremendous" and feeling like she was "dying a slow death".
She told Barcroft Media: "The weight loss had a lot to do with my break up with my ex - I was being served every meal daily, and when we broke up I had to take care of myself".
With the help of her family, she has managed to lose around 238lbs after swapping her high-calorie diet for vegetables, salads and stir-fry.
