A young woman has eaten her way through more than 13,000 jacket potatoes - because she has a phobia of almost all foods.
Claire Jones, 23, has panic attacks and is physically sick at the thought of eating proper meals.

It looks like she’s afraid of the Sun as well.
She looks fine although her arteries must be a starchy mess.
Maybe she should move to Idaho, or eastern Oregon. I bet she would fall in love with that giant potato on the semi trailer that drives around out here.
I have friends who have a child who will only eat chicken nuggets and tater tots. Why? Because he throws a fit everytime they put something in front of him that isn’t chicken nuggets and tater tots, so they rush to make him chicken nuggets and tater tots to make him calm down.
I have, as lovingly as possible, told them that if he missed a couple of meals, and had to sit at the table until everyone else finished, that he would be eating other foods by the end of the week. They think it is cruel to let a 3 year old miss a meal. I think it’s cruel that in 20 years I will be reading about a 23 year old man who can only eat chicken nuggets and tater tots.
Potatoes. One of the few things I can still eat. I feel her pain.
Sounds like a neurotic female to me.
A rarity to be sure, but I understand they have been known to exist.
Proof she was a potato bug in her previous life and her diet preference wasn’t reset when she was reincarnated. j/k
I doubt that food phobias are much of a problem in much of the world.
She must have malnutrition deficiencies. Maybe the coleslaw is enough to prevent scurvy?
I’m a barmaid!
I have a tattoo!
Look! I’m in the paper!
I wonder if the bit about the potatoes is real?
She has no fear of the tattoo parlor, I see. I bet she’d be a real laugh riot to be married to.
I’m sure she’d be a real treat.
There’s a couple in our church whose eldest son lives on saltine crackers and ketchup. Wherever he goes, he carries a ziploc bag with crackers, just in case. He is a junior in high school now, not quite as sickly as this girl, but very small. He had wanted to play football for years and the parents missed the chance to make him eat (if you don’t eat you will never be able to play). I wonder if he will be able to survive college!
And a story about Spuds MacKenzie is important because?
