17-Year-Old Passes Out After Eating Only Chicken Nuggets Since Age 2

17 year old Stacey Irvine looks surprisingly well for a teenager who’s eaten only chicken nuggets since she was 2.  However, when she recently went to the hospital after passing out from struggling to breathe, doctors told her that she absolutely had to eat a better diet.

“She’s been told in no uncertain terms that she will die if she carries on like this, but Stacey says she can’t eat anything else,” her mom, Evonne, told U.K.’s Daily Mail.

“It breaks my heart to see her eating those damned nuggets. I am at my wit’s end. I’m praying she can be helped before it’s too late.”

Stacey says she has never tasted fruits or vegetables, but admits to sometimes eating fries and toast.

“McDonald’s chicken nuggets are my favorite,” said Stacey. “I share 20 with my boyfriend, with [fries].” She also enjoys nuggets from KFC and the supermarket.

Evonne says her two younger children eat normally, and that she’s tried depriving Stacey of food to force her to try other foods.

In the hospital, Stacey was injected with much-needed vitamins and her physician found that she suffered from low iron levels and inflamed veins on her tongue because of her obsessive diet.

It’s hard to believe that in the 15 years since Stacey tasted her first nugget at McDonald’s, her mom has been unable to influence her to eat the minimal level of nutrients necessary to survive.
