A former anorexic who starved herself to just five stone has told how an obsession with Victoria’s Secret Angels left her at death’s door. Pretty Christie Swadling restricted herself to as little as 200 calories a day in an attempt to resemble her idol, Miranda Kerr. But her desire to look like the controversially skinny lingerie models left her in hospital after her heart rate dropped to a dangerously low level. Christie, now 18, from New South Wales, Australia, was once a talented long-distance runner and competed in the state and Sydney regionals. But eventually she became too weak to even walk and she even collapsed on one occasion after attempting a slow jog. Now Christie is on the road to recovery, and after gaining two stone feels she is ready to share her message to support other people struggling from an eating disorder.
