I STARVED MYSELF TO THREE STONE AND ‘DIED’

When Rebecca McIntyre, 20, from Belfast, Northern Ireland, was admitted to hospital, she weighed just three stone. Gripped by anorexia, her fragile body had been ravaged by six years of self-enforced starvation. Her lifeless eyes were sunken into her skeletal face and her jeans - made for a nine year old - hung loosely from her jagged hips. In hospital, the nurses attempted to feed emaciated Rebecca, but she went into a shock and ‘died’ for less than a minute when her heart stopped beating. The brush with death left Rebecca reeling. From that moment she realised she had pushed her body too far and she needed to recover.
