Valeria Levitin, originally from Russia and currently residing in Monaco, reveals a concerning trend: receiving fan mail from girls eager to emulate her skeletal appearance.
The 39-year-old, speaking to The Sun, discloses, “I have received emails from young girls who want me to teach them how to be like me. All the letters I’ve had are from women, mainly in their twenties, who see me as some kind of inspiration.”
In response, she courageously addresses her condition, actively campaigning against anorexia. Valeria Levitin asserts her stance, refusing to provide instruction on a path she describes as leading young girls toward self-destruction.
Valeria, who grappled with an eating disorder since adolescence, has decided to publicly address the profound impact the illness has had on her life.
Expressing a desire to share her journey, she aims to discourage others from succumbing to a similar fate. Valeria Levitin emphasizes that anorexia has left her feeling “lonely, unattractive, and repulsive to the people around me.”
At the age of 23, Valeria’s dress size drastically dropped from a healthy size 12 to a petite size 6.
The necessity to avoid many foods persists due to their adverse effects on her body. So extended is her abstinence from bread that she can’t recall its taste.
