AN anorexic teenager was just hours from death after eating no food and water for a WEEK in a desperate bid to become popular at school. Ellen Lietzow, then 17, had refused to let even a drop of water touch her lips in the worst of her struggle with anorexia, where her weight plunged to under five and a half stone. After a week of fasting she collapsed with a seizure and was rushed to hospital. She was in such poor condition doctors and nurses were astonished she was still alive. Shockingly, Elle admitted to losing weight because she thought that being skinny would make her popular amongst her peers. She has now bounced back to health after embarking on a strict vegan and fruitarian diet.
