British Woman Only Eats Plain Cheese Pizza

Recipe of the day
Some people are addicted to weird things, and although this case isn't anything like that lady who eats cat food, it's still pretty unhealthy.
A Notting Hill native has reportedly only eaten cheese and tomato pizza for 31 years, and while the 33-year-old knows her diet is unhealthy, she can't stop.
With a condition known as selective eating disorder, the woman gags whenever any other food touches her mouth, and starts shaking when other food is presented to her.
Even though the USDA thinks pizza is a vegetable, research has shown that any single-food diet is detrimental to one's health. The woman decided to speak out after news broke of the hospitalization of a 17-year-old who only ate chicken nuggets for 15 years.
While the teenager didn't reportedly shake when given other foods, a similar incident was covered by TLC's Freaky Eaters, which found a 34-year-old who could only eat potatoes and cheese for the last 30 years. Watch the video below, especially for the horrific green vegetable scene.
