Girl Eats Insane Amount Of Food While Sleeping Due To Rare Disorder
Kate Archibald is the worst roommate you'll ever have. Once asleep, the 20-year-old college student eats everything within her reach.
Archibald has been diagnosed with nocturnal sleep-related eating disorder, which means she acts out her brain's conscious desires while catching Zs at night.
She's been known to chow down almost an entire cheese wheel while unconscious.
The college student told Daily Mail,
Basically, my body is conditioned to be hungry in the night and want food -- even if I don't. It's sleep-walking, rather than an actual eating disorder.
Although Archibald only recently started to understand her condition – reportedly a side effect of the Adderall she once took for ADHD – the undergrad has been stealing food since her days in boarding school.
Roommates used to accuse Archibald of eating all their snacks, and she'd vehemently deny their claims.
The mystery finally became clear during Archibald's first year at Scotland's University of Aberdeen, when a sudden inexplicable weight gain took her from a US size 6 to 12.
After waking up in a bed covered with wrappers from an empty chocolate box, Archibald began to understand why every roommate had resented her.
Two years later, Archibald simply waits for the morning to discover clues about what she's eaten the night before.
