Valeria Levitin was a Russian woman who was known until her death as the World’s thinnest woman.
She suffered almost all her life due to (anorexia) a sickness characterized by a distorted body image, with an unwarranted fear of being overweight. She started by wanting to lose a few kilos, finally, she couldn’t raise the necessary ones to be healthy.
Valeria Levitin was 40 years old, came to weigh only 26 kilos, anorexia took her to the edge of death.
Although her case terrified everyone, Valeria warns that she continues to receive emails from young people who want to be like her.
“I have received emails from young people who want me to teach them how to be like me, all the letters are from women around the age of 20 who see me as an inspiration, which is why I am campaigning against anorexia. I will teach how to die, it’s not a game, it’s not a joke, it’s your life, “Valeria explained a few years ago.
Valeria took over the leadership of an international campaign against eating disorders, such as anorexia and bulimia.
She would say that her mother always pushed her to be thin since she was a little girl she was constantly weighed to watch that she did not raise a few kilos. Then, when she moved to the US, she felt she had to be thin to gain acceptance. Finally, that took her to a vicious circle.
“I wanted to be like the others and I thought that if I lost weight it would be accepted, I started avoiding certain foods from my diet, I did not eat sugars or carbohydrates, there was a time when I fell into a vicious circle and my need to lose weight was enhanced. Now it is very complicated to recover my weight, since my body can not process some food, “said Valeria.
