A mother with an eating disorder, for 4 years she was only able to eat the chicken nuggets she liked.
Michaela Harris, a woman from the United States, admits that she can only eat crispy foods like chiken nuggets.
It affects digestion and body weight.
Trapped in a sick state, he admitted that he only bought chiken snacks every time he went to the supermarket.
This 26 year old woman said that the trigger for her condition was due to her and her husband’s divorce 4 years ago.
She used to enjoy trying a normal diet, but since the divorce she has lost interest in trying diets.
In 2016, Michaela was diagnosed with avoidant restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), due to her unusual and picky eating style.
In the medical world, ARFID is an eating disorder condition when a person only wants to consume certain foods.
For example, he only wants to eat sweet food and refuses food that doesn’t taste sweet.
Or just want to eat food with a certain texture.
Usually this condition only occurs in toddlers, but some adults experience it like Michella.
“After my divorce, I stopped eating, and felt very lazy to eat food, lost my appetite.
There are things I eat, but in very small portions, ”he said.
Furthermore, he said that in a very short time his body weight shrank drastically.
“I lost 2 and a half times my body weight in 3 months.
Since then, I’ve only been eating chicken nuggets, for the past 4 years, ”he said.
During consuming nuggets, he admitted that he did not get the nutrition her body needed.
She also felt very weak every day.
“Many have asked me to have my body checked by a doctor, whether this can lead to cancer.
But I am also worried and find it difficult to change to another menu, “she said.
She hopes to return to health and eat a variety of foods as before.
“In the past, my body weight was ideal. I love being the chubby way I used to be and it will look amazing, “he said.
She admitted that the chicken nuggets made his skin pale and he looked like an addict.
What is most feared is the negative impact on the psychology of their children.
The diet that she lives certainly affects his 3 children, namely Isabella (7), Jacob (5), and Isla Rose (1).
“I am very worried that my child will copy what I am doing,” she said as quoted by the Miror page.
Michella also said that in addition to losing weight, she also lost confidence.
