Georgie Scotney has had Selective Eating Disorder from childhood and restricted her diet to KFC chicken strips or popcorn chicken with chips because she was too afraid to try anything else, reported the Daily Mail.

She believes the disorder started when she began to miss meals as a child while training as a gymnast.

The Mail quotes her as saying: ‘Growing up I’d always been really stubborn with what I’d eat, it started off as just southern fried chicken and chips but it then got to the point where it’d only be chicken from KFC - I’d go there everyday without fail.

‘I was just never fed up with it, I loved to put loads of salt on it too, which I now see wasn’t such a good idea - I do think that it had a lot to do with me being scared of a lot of foods, especially sauce, that was the worst fear of mine.’

‘After the session everything changed for me instantly, I tried new foods that I wouldn’t have dreamed of even going near before - and I actually really enjoyed them.’
