17-year-old Stacey Irvine of Castle Vale, Birmingham (in the UK) was living on a diet primarily composed of McDonald’s chicken nuggets for 15 years. However, it all caught up to her when she recently had trouble breathing and collapsed.
She was taken to the hospital where doctors found swollen blood vessels in her tongue and the symptoms of anaemia. Stacey has had neither fruit nor vegetable, except for maybe ketchup, in 15 years.
Stacey’s stressed out mother told The Sun: “I’m at my wit’s end. I’m praying she can be helped before it’s too late. It breaks my heart to see her eating those damned nuggets.”
As a child, Stacy would absolutely refuse to eat any other food, preferring to starve herself. Her mother eventually settled for simply getting her to eat, but Stacy didn’t grow out of the phase.
Her salt intake has been 912mg per day, twice the recommended amount, every single day.
