Teen Has Been Eating Only Ramen Noodles For 13 Years

Teen Has Been Eating Only Ramen Noodles For 13 YearsGeorgi Readman, 18, of the Isle of Wight, U.K., refuses to eat fruit and vegetables and exists solely on packaged noodle soup, a snack that often contains high amounts of fat, saturated fat, and sodium. One package typically boasts 400 calories and 20 grams of fat.

‘Health of an 80-year-old’

Readman, who is 5’3” and 98 pounds, told the Daily News that she became hooked on the noodles when she was five years old and her mother still buys her packages by the dozens. She estimates eating 30 miles of noodles per year and the thought of eating anything else makes her sick.

“I hate the texture of fruit and vegetables,” she said. “I can’t go to my friends’ for dinner or go out for meals because I don’t want them to see me freak out if the side salad touches the stuff I eat. Mum goes to the supermarket and brings back as many packets as she can afford. I always fancy noodles and could easily eat two packets at once. I’ve even eaten them dry and uncooked before!”

Readman could not be reached for comment but according to her doctors, she is malnourished and has the health of an 80-year-old.


‘Major mental and physical overhaul’

“That sounds like an accurate assessment,” says Lisa Kaufman, a pediatrician at Village Pediatrics who has not treated Readman. “A diet of instant noodles has likely wreaked incredible amounts of havoc on her organs… Her lifespan has likely been shortened as well… Kids would eat ice cream every day if they could but it’s the parent’s responsibility to broaden their palates, introducing various foods and textures to them.”

At 18 years old, Readman’s eating habits are so ingrained that it would likely take a major mental and physical overhaul to improve her health. “In order to get off the noodles, she may need hospitalization and an education in nutrition,” says Kaufman.

Guy Attacks Girlfriend With Steak Sauce For Reading ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

The sauciness of “Fifty Shades of Grey” — the titillating trilogy that millions of women around the world are reading this summer — turned literal late last month, when a 31-year-old British man, apparently upset that his girlfriend was one of them, assaulted her with a bottle of steak sauce.

According to authorities in Carlisle, U.K., Raymond Hodgson was so bothered that his girlfriend, Emma McCormick, was reading E.L. James’ “pornographic” and “distasteful” book, he drove to her house and squirted her in the face.


According to the Carlisle News & Star, the couple had been arguing and exchanging text messages before the sauce assault. McCormick “answered the door and the argument continued,” prosecutors said. “She went to close the door and [Hodgson] jammed his foot into the door, slapped her once in the face, and then squirted her with this bottle of sauce.”

Hodgson, who denies slapping McCormick, pleaded guilty to assault and was ordered to pay 185 pounds in fines, including 100 pounds to McCormick. The judge also imposed a six-week, 6 p.m. curfew for the convicted saucer.
