An anorexic whose weight plummeted to four stone after she got addicted to diet pills has spoken out about the dangers following the death of tragic student Ella Parry. Amber was a healthy nine stone when girls at her school started picking on her curvy figure when she was aged 17. She started dieting and exercising three days a week but when she didn’t lose weight fast enough she turned to slimming pills. Within months she had ramped up her gym sessions to seven days a week and was eventually consuming just 200 calories a day – eating cotton balls soaked in orange juice and ice. Pretty Amber was soon necking up to 90 pills a WEEK and was suffering excruciating stomach pains while her skin was telling yellow.
