Gainsborough - 25-year-old Jade Sylvester, from Gainsborough, Lincolnshire, developed an addiction to eating toilet paper while she was pregnant with her youngest son.
Sylvester now eats as much as an entire roll of toilet paper on a daily basis, according to Daily Mail.
Sylvester suspects she suffers from a condition known as Pica. Pica is a condition where people eat objects that are not suitable for consumption, as well as having no nutritional value.
According to NY Post, she says she just craved toilet paper while pregnant and to this day she still has no clue why. She also said that she didn't like the taste of toilet paper, but she does like the texture in her mouth.
Sylvester said she tries to delay going to the bathroom because she will just end up eating the toilet paper.
Sylvester said her family warned her about the habit, and told her that her addiction could lead to healthy problems in the future.
This is not the first time someone has been addicted to eating something out of the ordinary,. Last year, a woman appeared on a television show called "My Strange Addiction," and she revealed that she was addicted to eating tires.
