A woman who has eaten only cheese and tomato pizza for 31 years has been told she could die unless she quits her bizarre dining habit.

Claire Simmons, of Notting Hill, West London, 33, gags if she puts anything but a plain pizza slice in her mouth.

She also shakes the moment she is presented with any other type of food.

Now doctors have warned that her bizarre condition — known as selective eating disorder — is increasing her risk of a stroke or heart attack in later life.

"I keep myself healthy with exercise and drink a lot of water," Simmons said.

"But my GP says I'm storing up many problems for the future due to a lack of vitamins and minerals. This could lead to a stroke or heart attack."
