Teenage Girl Almost Dies After Giving Up Food And Water To Lose Weight (20 pics)
This teenage girl wanted to lose weight so that she would be more popular at school. Unfortunately her plan to lose the weight almost killed her.
19 year old Ellen Lietzow is a former anorexia sufferer who came close to death when she refused to eat or drink anything as a result of wanting to be more popular with the kids at school.
Ellen, then 17, refused to let even a drop of water touch her lips at the height of her struggle with anorexia, when her weight plummeted to under five and a half stone.
In just a few months Elle lost almost seven stone (40 kilos).
Elle was so thin she weighed just 35 kilos.
After a week of fasting she collapsed with a seizure and was rushed to hospital.
She was in such poor condition doctors and nurses were astonished she was still alive.
She said: "I wanted to stay skinny just to be accepted by everyone. I had gained so many friends when I lost weight accidentally during my swimming and everyone would compliment me.
I thought, if I quit swimming I am going to have to keep that low weight so that people would still want to be my friends, because if I gain weight no one would want to be my friend anymore."
Elle said: "My life has changed since my recovery. I'm now social, I go out with friends and I don't isolate myself. "
Today, Elle is happy and healthy.
