I’ve heard stories about people with crazy food habits, but this one may take the cake…or the pizza as it were. Dan, a 38-year-old living in Maryland, claims he has spent the past 25-years only eating cheese pizza. Specifically, an entire 14-inch cheese pizza every single day. It started because he became a vegetarian that hates vegetables, and that somehow lead to cheese pizza being his only option. He also has diabetes, and frequently blacks out because of low blood sugar (once while driving).
I’ve never gotten a negative reaction except from my first endocrinologist. But all the other doctors have said, “Your cholesterol is fine. You seem healthy. Keep doing what you’re doing.” I haven’t had anyone truly concerned about it, except for my fiancée, and she’s not overly concerned. With her advice and support, I’ve been seeing a therapist about my food aversion, and we’ve been exploring why I have such a limited diet. I must say, even though I sound like a horribly unhealthy and fat person, I’m not. I’m thin. I have tons of energy, and I feel great every day, so there might be something to the exclusive pizza diet.
Dan calls it an addiction. He’s seeing a therapist who has uncovered some incidents in his past that could explain his aversion to certain kinds of food, but who knows. It doesn’t sound like Dan is going to change his cheese pizza habits any time soon.
