Everyone craves fast food every once in a while, but for 17-year-old Stacey Irvine, chicken nuggets have been a part of her daily diet ever since she was 2 years old. Although you wouldn’t think so by looking at her.
I’m a big cheeseburger fan myself, though I try not to eat more than one a month, but for young Stacey, chicken nuggets are the most delicious things on Earth. Her mother, Evonne, 39, made the mistake of introducing her to the tastiness of chicken nuggets when she was just two years old, and she loved them so much, she refused to eat almost anything else after that. Mum even tried starving her at one time, in an attempt to get her to eat more nutritious foods, but to no avail, so she gave up trying to get her off nuggets a long time ago. For a while they were all she would eat, but she later expanded her daily diet to fries, chipss and an occasional piece of toast for breakfast.

“It breaks my heart to see her eating those damned nuggets. She’s been told in no uncertain terms that she’ll die if she carries on like this. But she says she can’t eat anything else,” Stacey’s mother says, concerned the girls doesn’t even touch fruits and vegetables. Her favorites are McDonalds, but she also likes KFC and supermarket brands. At least once a day, she shares 20 of them with her boyfriend, with chips. And even though she has a relatively slim figure, her eating habits have recently started to cause problems for Stacy. The young factory worker was rushed to the hospital after she collapsed and experienced breathing difficulties. Doctors found she was anemic and had swollen veins in her tongue. But despite being admitted and put on an urgent course of vitamins, Stacey still can’t get enough of chicken nuggets.

Another less serious problem caused by Stacey Irvine’s chicken nugget addiction is the large number of toys she collected with all her nugget meals. She has so far managed to acquire four garbage bags full of toys, and she’s running out of space to store them. Still, doctors warn it’s her health she should be worried about. Despite her trim physique, a serious lack of vitamins and other important nutrients, combined with dangerous amounts of salt and fat could prove fatal, in the long run.
