The saleswoman, who eats until six chocolate eggs a day, said: “My eating pattern is rather boring and not something I enjoy.

“I can’t eat with my two kids, so we can’t go out for family dinners and things like that. It’s extremely frustrating.”

Ashley said he vomited when he tried any food as a baby and has since developed a severe aversion to new foods for fear he will get sick.

One possible diagnosis, he says, is avoidant/restrictive food intake disorder, a condition characterized by the avoidance of certain foods.

But the father-of-two says he went to numerous doctors – including a “full MOT” – only to be told everything was normal and that he is in good health.

But Ashley, from Castleford, West Yorks, said: “How, when is this my diet? There is no meat or vegetables.

“It’s frustrating because where do I go?”
