Tic Tac Diet for Teenager

Natalie CooperIf you think you are picky over food, spare a thought for Natalie Cooper... all she can eat is Tic Tacs.

The 17-year-old has a mystery illness which means she keeps throwing up any solids she swallows.

Natalie gets all her nourishment from a specially-formulated feed through a tube.

But the only real food her stomach will tolerate are the little two-calorie mints.

Natalie said: "They do give me a bit of energy, but I eat them mostly to get rid of hunger. It is psychological."

She discovered she could keep the Tic Tacs down by experimenting with mints at home.

Natalie, of Maidstone, Kent, said: "When they started to come back up, I started reducing the size. I went from Trebor Extra Strong Mints to Polos and ended up with Tic Tacs."

Doctors are baffled by her condition, which she has had all her life.
