A Florida man has eaten nothing but macaroni and cheese for 17 years.
According to the Tampa Bay Times, 20-year-old Austin Davis prefers to eat Velveeta macaroni and cheese while enjoying internet videos. The unique diet began after he was removed from his home as a child after enduring physical abuse from his father. He currently lives with his grandparents in Keystone Heights.
“I don’t want to say I’m addicted to mac and cheese, because it sounds so weird.But my body won’t let me eat anything else. I didn’t choose to be like this”
Davis has an eating disorder called avoidant food intake, a condition where trying new foods can cause a negative reaction in the body. He was also diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
The condition has prevented Davis from making friends and he rarely leaves his home. However, he tried to eat new food but his body refuses to ingest it.
“As soon as it enters my mouth it’s like a sensory overload.Even if I like what I’m trying, I’ll have an involuntary gag.”
Davis tries to maintain his health by working out four times a week.
