Meet The Woman Who Only Eat Potatoes Because She’s Afraid Of Other Foods

A young woman has eaten her way through more than 13,000 jacket potatoes – because she has a phobia of almost all foods.

Claire Jones, 23, has panic attacks and is physically sick at the thought of eating proper meals.

The barmaid has a bizarre disorder which meant she eats practically nothing but potatoes, cheddar cheese and coleslaw – and only a particular brand.

Claire will only eat Maris Piper potatoes, mild cheddar cheese and Tesco Finest coleslaw.

Very occasionally she will try some bread, sausage or a burger, but even this slight change in her diet makes her feel sick – as does the smell of cooking.

Selective eating such as Claire’s is a recognised condition and can have negative health implications –  in her case, persistent infections and anaemia.

She said: ‘I’m fed up of eating jacket potatoes but I don’t know how to stop. I keep getting ill. My immune system is really bad.

‘I’ve had a sinus infection for the past six months. I’m constantly tired.’

She added: ‘Trying new foods has made me physically sick, so I just don’t do it now.

‘It’s so bad, it’s taken over my life. I’m scared to go to the supermarket or eat out with friends.

‘I went to a work party and when they brought out the buffet, I started shaking. I couldn’t get out quick enough.

‘A friend at uni tried to get me try new foods. I put something on my fork and almost got it to my mouth but then I panicked. I threw the fork down and had a panic attack.

‘I’ve always been fussy but it was only recently I realised it was an actual disorder.’

Claire blames her diet on being a picky eater, which started when she was just a baby.

She began refusing food aged two. She said: I think it was built in me from birth. ‘Mum said I would go for days without eating.

‘I broke my leg really badly when I was five and ended up in hospital. I refused to eat anything so Mum had to buy me a jacket potato from the canteen for lunch and then bring one from home for dinner.

‘I’ve never eaten any of my birthday cakes but Mum still buys me one every year. She spent £50 on a giant cupcake for my 21st and I didn’t eat a bite.’

Claire lives with her mother Debbie, 50, in Wellingborough, Northants and will only eat food prepared by her.

She’s had to miss out on family meals and it’s affecting her social life.

Claire said: ‘So many things revolve around food – like going out for dinner and going to the cinema.

‘I’ve gone out before and they’ve not had what I can eat on the menu so I’ve sat there and not eaten anything. I’ll just go hungry.

‘Luckily, my boyfriend Luke is really understanding.’

Friends and family have tried to persuade her to vary her diet. She said: ‘Mum gets really worried about me. She says I need to see someone. She says it’s not right.’

She said: ‘I also hate watching people eat. The worst thing I have to do at work is a table check, because you have to interrupt people while they’re eating.

‘They didn’t say anything about waitressing at the job interview. I just thought it was bar work. I don’t think I would’ve taken the job if I’d known.’

Her mother Debbie, who also has a son, Glenn, 27, said: ‘I always cooked meals from scratch. Glenn was very good and loved his food but Claire was always very difficult with eating.

‘When she was younger and we went camping, I’d have to bring food from home. I’d try to buy food from the supermarket where we were staying but she refused to believe it was the same.

‘I always make sure I have jacket potatoes in the cupboard or she’d probably not eat much at all.
‘I do worry because she’s not getting the right vitamins.’

Claire has joined a Selective Eating Disorder support group and wants to finds a medical specialist or psychologist to help her beat the condition.

She said: “Going on the group I realised there are other people like me. It’s made me feel less alone.
‘It’s not that I want to eat jacket potatoes. It’s just the only thing I can eat.’

Nigerian Parents Arrested After Teen Son Dies During Religious Fast

Published

on

A Nigerian couple have been arrested in the US after their 15-year-old son reportedly died during a 40-day religious fast.

Kehinde Omosebi, 49, and Titilayo Omosebi, 48, of Reedsburg, were on Tuesday charged with child neglect causing death and child neglect causing great bodily harm.

The father was said to have walked to the Reedburg police station on Sunday, to report his son had died on Friday, Chief Timothy Becker said.

Investigators who went to the Omosebi home reportedly had to force their way in, as the doors was padlocked on the inside. No food was discovered in the home. They found the “extremely emaciated and deceased” teenager, and also found a gaunt 11-year-old child, along with his mother, Titilayo, who was also undernourished, according to the report.

The father, Kehinde, told authorities that the family began fasting on July 19, and that he was a “religious minister affiliated with Cornerstone Reformation Ministries,” which is believed by police to have been made up.

The mother and 11-year-old were transported to a hospital. The mother reportedly refused medical treatment due to religious reasons, and was taken to the Sauk County Jail.

The child remains in protective custody at Children’s Hospital in Madison, while, according to Becker, the parents are eating while in jail.

This Illuminati Conspiracy Theory Of Celebrities With Black Eyes Will Shock You..

Published

on

A bizarre conspiracy theory has emerged suggesting that celebrities seen sporting a black left eye are part of the Illuminati. Former US President George W. Bush, along with the Pope, Prince Philip and Prince Andrew, have all also been photographed with black eyes.

According to some conspiracy theorists, the black left eye is part of a cult or ‘Illuminati’ high-level initiation ritual during which the pledger is said to be forced to ‘eat pain’ in a quest to become more powerful.

Author and internet radio show host Sherry Shriner –  who wrote the book Interview With The Devil, in which she claimed to converse with Lucifer – has spoken of the link between these black eyes and ‘soul scalping’.

According to Shriner, government leaders, people on TV with their own shows and hundreds of popular entertainers have sold their souls to Satan.

‘You cannot be on TV now, without signing on the dotted line. The bizarre recurrence of facial bruises on Illuminati politicians and entertainers has resulted in speculation that their souls have been replaced in a satanic ritual called “soul scalping”,’ she said.

Shriner, who died earlier this year, believed all the powerful people in the world have been soul scalped.

She said that this can one done in a number of ritualistic ways, all of which result in a ‘possession’, whereby the human soul is removed and the body taken over by the demonic entity.

In conspiracy circles, this process is also known as a ‘walk-in’. Some people believe the blackened eye is a result of soul scalping.

Meanwhile, celebrities have come up with various explanations for how they got their black eyes over the years.

The Pope was said to have hit his eye when riding through the streets of Cartagena, Columbia in the ‘Pope-mobile’ last year.

Several news reports stated that he had made a joke about the injury, saying that he’d been punched.

Conspiracy theorists have pointed out that even members of the royal family have been spotted with black eyes over the years.

Some researchers suggest a link between the bearers of black eyes to the worship of the Egyptian sun god Horus, whose left eye was black and represented the moon and whose right eye was white and represented the sun.
