How big of rat can your rat snake eat?

I have been feeding Fred, my Taiwanese beauty snake, a small rat every two weeks... He is 7 years old, about 7 foot long and I'm considering bumping him up to a medium rat... My problem is i'm worried about it being to big! He's head looks to small to me... I know I'm supposed to go by the body and not the head but I can't watch them eat something that's three times the size of their head... Anyway, I thought I pick some brains here... So if you have a full grown rat snake how big of meal can she/he eat?
George- 1.0 Purple Albino Reticulated Python... Cornella- 0.1 Pink Phase Corn Snake?
Moe- 1.0 Jungle Carpet Python... Fred- 1.0 Taiwanese Beauty Snake...
Crystal- 0.1 Blue Eyed Leucistic Ball Python... A cross between a Mojave to Lesser...
Leon- 1.0 Lemon Ball, aka Russo Het White Diamond Ball Python... Crystal's boyfriend...
