A WOMAN has gone viral on TikTok after sharing her story of becoming addicted to junk food.
Mother-of-two Ella Grace reveals how she and her partner spend a lot ordering takeout at least twice a day.
Ella, from the UK, has gone viral with over 300k views on a video on her TikTok account, ellagrace_x21where she is documenting her journey.
Everyone likes the same food once in a while, but for Ella and her partner, it became a problem when they ordered takeaway twice a day, sometimes three times.
The couple have decided to cut out all the to-dos for 100 days, and Ella is challenging herself to make more home-cooked meals in the process.
She was on day 13 and had saved around £500.
Ella claims that a typical meal day for her and her husband would include starting the day with a toast and coffee for breakfast from Costa or Starbucks and ordering Subway or Macdonalds for lunch.
She said for dinner the couple would have anything like Chinese food, curry, KFC, Nandos, or whatever they love.
In one video, Ella said: “We’re on day 11 and we’ve saved between £350 and £400 already.
Ella was asked if her two children followed the same diet as their mom and dad, to which Ella replied “NO!”
She said she wouldn’t feed her children every day because it’s not good for their health, but noted that occasional feeding isn’t a big deal if parents decide to do it.
Some users asked why if Ella can cook but waste so much money ordering takeout, Ella replied: “It sounds silly but just know that being addicted to food is a food addiction. real”.
In another comment, Ella said she would spend around £600 to £1000 a month on things to go for herself and her partner.
She also explains to users the feeling of addiction to ‘bad’ food and the convenience of takeaway food.
Ella added that she had previously tried to stop getting things to do and found that documenting her journey on TikTok has helped her continue her journey and the support she has gained has make it a positive experience.
Users have been overwhelmingly supportive of the journey and some have even started taking on the challenge with her, with one writing: “Can’t wait for you to hit 100 that day, you got this! “
“Ninth day completed today, today was really hard because I didn’t feel motivated but we made it!” Another user exclaimed.
A third commented: “You’re doing great! Your videos come out every day, I love your positive attitude towards my goals.”
