Lizzie Velasquez has to eat every 15 minutes or she will die.


The most strangest disease to exist?

We’re not sure what to make of this, but all we can say from the outset it must be hell for Ms Velazquez who finds herself in a dire situation. A situation that ironically most girls wish they could have…

News.com.au : SOME women would kill to be able to eat whatever they want and never gain weight – but for Lizzie Velasquez who has a rare condition where she must eat every 15 minutes to stay alive – it’s a living nightmare.

The 21-year-old communications student from Austin, Texas, eats up to 60 small meals a day.

Doctors believe her condition may be a form of Neonatal Progeroid Syndrome which causes accelerated ageing, fat loss from the face and body, and tissue degeneration

So while most women starve themselves to conform to expected social norms, because looking thin is the espoused doctrine in our celebrity re touched world, Lizzie on the other hand has to shovel it in just to stay alive.

Ms Velasquez said she consumes between 21,000-29,000kJ (5000-8000 calories) a day, but still only weighs 26.7kg and has to wear size triple zero clothes.

“I weigh myself regularly and if I gain even one pound I get really excited,” Ms Velasquez said.

Which is a round about way of saying if you tried this at home you’ll soon be wearing a size 22. Not that helps Lizzie we imagine, although we wouldn’t be surprised the idea hasn’t crossed her mind.

“I eat small portions of crisps, sweets, chocolate, pizza, chicken, cake, doughnuts, ice cream, noodles and pop tarts all day long, so I get pretty upset when people accuse me of being anorexic.”

Miss Velasquez it’s a mad enough world without you having to listen to idiot savants who haven’t the slightest idea of what you go through on a daily basis. If only we could wish you put on some weight we would be equally thrilled. Personally I recommend the Prailine Rum Raisin from Haagen Daz- it’s done wonders for our waist line. Please get better Ms Velasquez…
