For most people, eating nothing but mac and cheese seems like a childhood fantasy. But for 20-year-old Austin Davis, who has been eating nothing but mac and cheese for the past 17 years, it’s not a fantasy -- it’s his reality and has become his affliction. For Austin, it’s about much more than just “liking” mac and cheese. Austin suffers from Selective Eating Disorder, also known as Avoidant/Restrictive Food Intake Disorder, an anxiety disorder that’s characterized by the persistent refusal to eat specific foods or refusal to eat any type of food due to a negative response from certain sensory characteristics of that food.
VICE travels to Florida to meet Austin to learn more about the origins of his eating disorder and join him as he embarks on his journey towards recovery.

This video turned out amazing guys! I really appreciate all you guys did for me. Lots of people in the comments confused or concerned. I appreciate all of the positive comments and all the negative ones are just too funny. For anyone interested, since this video was filmed I've lost a ton of weight, down to about 188 now (I was 245 when this was filmed) nothing but pasta makes it difficult but I'm getting there! Working with Ashley has been amazing. Keep making great stuff guys!

*20 years old, eating only mac & cheese for 17 years, means parents allowed harmful behavior of only giving him mac & cheese. Idiot parents!* *Sweetheart grandparents!* *Super nice guy! GL!*

My beautiful, intelligent child, now a young man, has had a similar story. Thank you for sharing it and giving a voice to this issue. It’s VERY real. I hope you post your progress. He added food after much pressure from concerned family by doing smoothies with yogurt and fruit and protein. Texture was a big issue. That was a huge step. Carbs are the favorite though. He eats no veggies or meat, not since he was about 5. Good luck to you and again, thank you for sharing your story. You are not alone.

It's strange for me to watch this, as I have an opposite association with Mac & Cheese. When my family was poor, we had to go early in the morning to get food boxes from churches and the only complete meal in the box would be Kraft mac & cheese. I came to hate it, how it symbolized the fact that we couldn't afford other options. When I ate boxed mac & cheese as a child, it was something I always felt ashamed about. In class, when my peers talked excitedly about what they ate, I would lie.
