 Strange Eating Habit for Three Decades Could Prove Very Costly for a Brit Woman

A British woman has been warned about the unhealthy diet she has been consuming for three decades which consists of only cheese and tomato pizza.

Claire Simmons, of Notting Hill, West London, gags if she puts anything but a plain pizza slice in her mouth. She also shakes the moment she is presented with any other type of food.

But doctors have warned her bizarre condition - known as Selective Eating Disorder - is increasing her risk of a stroke or heart attack in later life.

"I keep myself healthy with exercise and drink a lot of water. But my GP says I'm storing up many problems for the future due to a lack of vitamins and minerals. This could lead to a stroke or heart attack," Claire told the Sun.

To stay healthy, experts recommend a varied diet, including some five daily portions of fruit and vegetables. ut Claire said: "I'm actually scared of fruit and veg. I get so angry when people think I'm being faddy - this is a real medical condition."
