'I'm not going to teach young girls how to die': Frightening words of 4st anorexic who gets FAN MAIL because she's so thin•Valeria Levitin, 39, developed the eating disorder as a teenager after years of her mother weighing her as a child
•Taunted at school about her weight and told she was 'too fat' to be a model
•Says she is horrified by the letters she receives from girls wanting weight loss tips - and that her emaciated figure should be a severe warning about the dangers of extreme dieting

..This is the desperately sad story of the thinnest woman in the world who weighs just four stone after years of extreme dieting.

But rather than feel sorry for herself, Valeria Levitin says her emaciated figure should be a severe wake-up call for girls wanting matchstick-thin figures.

At 5ft 8in, she should weigh between 9st and 12st, according to NHS advice. Instead, she is a tiny 4st 3lbs, less than half of what her lightest healthy weight should be.


Valeria Levitin is a walking skeleton after years of anorexia reduced her weight to just four stone



Valeria aged 19, on holiday in Mexico. She developed the eating disorder as a teenager and has now chosen to speak out about how the illness has ruined her life
What is most worrying is that Valeria, originally from Russia but who now lives in Monaco, says she gets fan mail from girls desperate to copy her skeletal look.

The 39-year-old told The Sun: ‘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.’

As a result, she has taken the brave step to speak out about her condition and campaign against anorexia – and says she refuses to teach young girls how to die.


Valeria, here aged 11, believes the roots of her condition lie with her mother, who was terrified she would grow up obese like her relatives
Valeria, who developed her eating disorder as a teenager, has chosen to speak out about how the illness has ruined her life.

She says she wants to share her story to prevent other people falling victim to the same fate, saying anorexia has made her ‘lonely, unattractive and repulsive for the people around me’.

She believes the roots of her condition lie with her mother, who was terrified Valeria would grow up obese like her relatives. Even as a young child, her diet was curtailed
