Feeding Adult BPs

I was at my favorite cricket supplier today and I got to talking with one of the guys who worked there. He mentioned feeding his adult female BP 1 medium rat every seven days.

That's too often, yes? He seemed to think his snake was better getting fed more often. I mean, I guess feeding once a week is ok, but you'd have to go to a smaller prey size right?

He also showed me a demonstration of her girth as a circle with his fingers that looked like it was 4 inches across. I know BPs are chunky buggers but that seemed extreme.

If a snake gets obese, would that make it hard to tell whether or not the prey produces a noticeable bulge in the snakes girth?
