She Only Ate KFC For Three Years; This Is How She Looks

A woman who had always had trouble with food fell into a food rut, but KFC was one of the few things she would eat. Because of her food phobias, she got to the point of which it was the only food she would eat.

For three whole years, she wouldn't put non-KFC food item in her mouth. She only would eat her chicken with extra salt -no sauces of any kind. After getting some counseling, the woman learned that she'd been suffering from an eating disorder, and if she didn't do something about it, it could have a serious impact on her health.

Georgie Scotney was suffering from Selective Eating Disorder, and she didn't even know it. She just thought her aversion to many foods was part of being a picky eater.

“Growing up I’d always been really stubborn with what I’d eat, it started off as just southern fried chicken and chips but it then got to the point where it’d only be chicken from KFC – I’d go there every day without fail,” she tells Daily Mail.

Scotney found out about her eating disorder in therapy, and, more importantly, she learned she could beat it. That's something she never thought would happen, but her desire to travel with her boyfriend enticed her to give it a shot. He was not about to trot around the globe only to search for a KFC everywhere they stopped.

“I warned everyone that I was so headstrong and thought that I’d never be able to change,” she said. “After the session, everything changed for me instantly, I tried new foods that I wouldn’t have dreamed of even going near before – and I actually really enjoyed them.”

After her first 1-hour hypnotherapy session, Scotney tried fruit for the first time-- and she liked it. She began introducing more foods into her diet.

“Never in my life had I eaten any fruit or veg and I’ve even managed to try a roast dinner now, I can’t believe that I missed out on so much,” she said.

Not surprisingly, KFC had always made it difficult for her to keep her weight down. A single meal at the restaurant runs an average of 1,000 calories-- more than half the calories that most people should consume in a day. In addition, one meal has approximately 40 grams of fat, much of it saturated fat.

Saturated fat is the 'bad' kind that everyone should avoid. If someone were to continue to sustain themselves on a diet mainly consisting of greasy, deep-fried chicken, they could end up with some serious health issues, such as diabetes or heart disease.

She's hoping new eating habits will change her fate. “I’d always struggled with my weight, even though I’d go to the gym every day, because of my poor diet so I’m hoping now that I’ll be a lot healthier and happier.”

Most ‘picky eaters’ who are actually suffering from eating disorders don’t get the support that they need to really help them overcome the problem. Every family dinner, every office party or invitation to lunch can be filled with dread and result in stressful arguments. They’ll often just try to avoid the situations altogether, isolating themselves, rather than face the lectures and finger-wagging.

Scotney is lucky she got support and went to therapy to help her with her food issues.
