Woman Must Eat Every 15 Minutes to Stay Alive

I love eating. I think that is pretty clear. However, if I had to go through what Lizzy Velasquez has to suffer through, I think even I would start to dislike food.

Lizzy is a 21-year old woman who lives in Texas and is amazing. She weighs 56 pounds and suffers from Neonatal Progeroid Syndrome. Because of this disease she is unable to put on weight, no matter what she eats or how much she eats.

Currently, she eats between 5,000-8,000 calories a day, and does it in 60 meals. Yep. 60. She eats every 15 minutes.

Doctors all over the world study her.

I can't imagine what that must be like. Despite what this woman goes through, she seems to be the happiest woman in the world. She gets thrilled when she gains a pound.

In September, a book she helped write will be released, which discusses in greater detail her condition and her life. She wants to be a motivational speaker.

This is a person who should have a reality show. Not the Kardashians. If you cannot or do not want to watch the CBS interview with her, you can click here and read the article in The Daily Telegraph.
