NO DAIRY, no gluten, no meat and no sugar. In fact, Ashlee Thomas would allow herself so little food, her parents were forced to do the unthinkable. Force feed their daughter, with a tube, all because she refused to eat.
In a bid to get fit, Ms Thomas was inspired to exercise and clean up her diet with green juices and short, seven-minute workouts.
But before long, her interest became an addiction that led her to stop eating altogether, a condition known as orthorexia nervosa.
“(There were) comments of what you should eat and what you shouldn’t eat,” she told journalist Alison Langdon.
“I saw this beautiful body, what I saw as perfect, and I wanted to be like that. So I just gospelly followed it.
“When I became quite thin I got more compliments than ever, I got more likes, more followers.
“People were applauding my behaviour, applauding my look and so it just fed my disease thinking that what I was doing was right.”
