Thirty-three-year-old Claire Simmons, of Notting Hill in London, is in a monogamous relationship with a dangerous partner: pizza.
Simmons says she exercises and drinks plenty of water. The problem is that her limited diet -- the result of a mental illness known as Selective Eating Disorder -- doesn't provide all the minerals and vitamins she needs for solid health.
Simmons exposed her difficult story to the public after reading the story of Stacey Irvine, sometimes called "Chicken Nugget Girl," a fellow Brit who was hospitalized after eating only chicken nuggets for a decade and a half.
This fall also brought to light the story of Jonathan McGowan, a British man who, for the past 30 years, has refused to eat any meat except roadkill. The BBC has even aired documentary-based multiple series on the topic of extremely picky eaters. Could there be something in English water that gives its drinkers Selective Eating Disorder? Maybe -- though it seems even more likely that there's something about English tabloids that helps these stories find an eager public.
Here are 10 other foods that people have tried -- most often, with less than fantastic results -- to eat to the exclusion of all others:
