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
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.
“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…
