Valeria Levitin, 39, developed the eating disorder as a teenager after years of her mother weighing her as a child.

The Daily Mail reports she was teased at school about her weight and told she was 'too fat' to be a model.

Now, she is horrified by the letters she receives from girls wanting weight loss tips.

She describes being anorexic as "lonely, unattractive and repulsive for the people around me".
