    Woman lives on Pizza

    Snip
    A British woman has taken way too many pieces of the pie.

    Claire Simmons, 33, said she's eaten only plain pizza for the past 31 years and has been told she could die if she doesn’t change her diet.

    The Notting Hill native said she gags if she eats anything other than cheese and tomato pizza, and begins to shake if she is given any other type of food, according to The Sun, which also recently reported on a woman who eats nothing but chicken nuggets.

    They had women on Anderson Cooper recently who ate only specific foods and nothing else.They wouldn't even try other foods.I think one only ate fries.

    I'm so glad I love my vegetables.

    Hi dave,

    I can't get the article up now but I read today it was some
    type of medical condition she suffers with as do some of
    the others.
    I studied nutrition in college yet I never heard of this.


    I have, as you all probably heard of people who live on BigMacs
    for years.

    The article says the condition is called Selective Eating Disorder. I will have to do some reading about it. The thing that really made my hinky meter go up was when she said that she is actually scared of fruits and vegetables....lol. Just seems super over the top to me.

    It must be pretty boring just to eat the same pizza every day for 31 years, I understand it might kill her and she has Selective Eating Disorder. But I still think it must be boring eating the same thing for 31 years.

    Y'all have never watched Freaky Eaters?

    There's a plethora of people who just eat weird, random stuff. One guy ate only meat. Another ate corn starch? I know there was one guy who only ate hamburgers. There was a lady who only ate french fries, and it was a certain kind of fries.

    I hate to admit I love watching that freaky show. I do think it's a mental disease, like OCD, anorexia, or bulimia. Hopefully there's a cure for this woman.

    Dieting in high school, (as we all think 5lbs makes us fat) I went on a basic flounder diet w/ some yogurts and other stuff. This was very limited and one gets tired of the repetition. It was easy to get use to eating this boring diet though. After a few days, one does not crave a variety of food. (at least I found this to be true)..

    Yet, it was boring so I do not know how someone can do it long term.

    Hey, when is that TV Show on? Is it on the cooking channel?

    Well...At least pizza has been reclassified as a vegetable now, that's a plus for her. *sarcasm*

    I love pizza but that's a little extreme!!

    If it's a true disorder, why not seek help for it about 29 years ago??

    Very interesting program. I also am drawn to the program "Hoarders" for understanding the psychological factors.

    On the program "My Strange Addiction" or "Freaky Eaters" -- one of the two, I think you will find that there was a man featured who had eaten only pizza for something like 20 yrs. So there is similar documentation of this.
