Woman Who Only Ate Crisp Sandwiches For 23 Years Finally Hypnotised Into Eating Proper Meal

Woman Who Only Ate Crisp Sandwiches For 23 Years Finally Hypnotised Into Eating Proper Meal

A fussy eater who would only eat crisp sandwiches for over two decades had her first proper meal after being hypnotised.

Zoe Sadler, 25, has exclusively eaten Walkers cheese and onion crisps on buttered white bread since she was two years old.

Sadler, from Coventry, has spent the last two decades eating two packets of her favourite crisps every day after other foods left her feeling physically sick.

Despite her parents introducing her to other foods as a toddler, Sadler would turn her nose up and refuse to put anything in her mouth.

Sadler said: "Apparently the only thing mum could get down me were crisps which I used to suck until they were soft. I remember being at school when I was little and having crisp sandwiches in my lunch box. They were the only thing I liked to eat."

As a child, Sadler would typically eat dry cereal for breakfast, followed by a crisp sandwich for lunch and dinner, occasionally switching from her preferred cheese and onion crisps and trying other flavours, as the texture did not bother her.

Christmas was a difficult time for Sadler as she never wanted to eat the food on offer, instead limiting herself to 'Yorkshire pudding but never with gravy'.

However, three years ago, Sadler committed to improving her health after being diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, a lifelong condition that affects the brain and nerves.

After researching on the internet, Sadler contacted hypnotherapist David Kilmurry, who has previously helped fussy eaters.

Since undergoing a two-hour hypnotherapy session, Sadler said she has been able to enjoy her first tastes of fruit and vegetables alongside other foods.

She said: "I can't believe how nice strawberries are and I'm looking forward to trying curry and lots of other different foods."

Kilmurry diagnosed Sadler with avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder (ARFID), explaining: “In a very short amount of time with myself and at home she has been calmly eating new meals and incorporated many new high grade fruits and vegetables to her ‘safe’ foods list."

Having recently been diagnosed with MS, it would be dangerous for Sadler to only eat crisp sandwiches.

The 25-year-old has since tried cabbages, blueberries, nuts and cranberries, as well as being excited to try several other foods.

The therapist added: "Huge credit to Zoe on her recovery. Her progress has been phenomenal and has superseded my expectations."

Sadler is now dedicated to overcoming her obsession with crisp sandwiches in the hopes she can enjoy a proper meal at her wedding next march.

"I really don't just want to be eating crisp sandwiches on my wedding day," she said.
