The 28-year-old Nana is pictured above. In her dream of becoming thin, she successfully lost 20kg through dieting in just a period of 5 months. She’s from Jiangsu Province in China. Now she looks as if she’s 60 years old.
In the five months period, she is said to have consumed only boiled vegetables without salt or oil.
Her current weight is only 30kg though she is 155cm in height. She was weighing 50kg before the adventure started.
Hasn’t she paid the price for wanting to look thin?
She’s now going bald and losing teeth like a baby. There are also wrinkles all over her saggy body.
Doctors who carried out tests on her said she is now suffering from anorexia along with depression and severe general body weakness. She has been hospitalized.
As explained by the doctor, anorexia is an eating disorder characterized by a low weight, fear of gaining weight and a strong desire to be thin.
In the words of Nana’s doctor at Zhongda Hospital Southeast University, “Many people with anorexia see themselves as overweight eventhough they are underweight, and this would cause osteoporosis, infertility and heart damage.”
