Crazy craving ... Kailyn, 18, has eaten over 68kg of plastic in 11 years
 
MOST American teenagers fight the urge to binge on burgers or chocolate - but pretty Kailyn is addicted to eating PLASTIC.
 
The 18-year-old, from Sacramento, California, has chewed her way through over 68kg of the stuff in 11 years - and she is now the subject of a TV documentary about her bizarre habit.

Kailyn's incredible consumption includes 5,000 beads, 1,000 cocktail swords, 100 forks, ten water bottles, 50 coat hangers and 25 plastic lids.

So great is her craving that the trainee waitress eats at least 15 pieces of plastic a day - and has not gone a single day without her favourite treat since she was EIGHT.

Kailyn says: "Plastic is something I want and I feel like I need.

"It's not the taste I love, it's the way it crunches and feels. It has a rough but at the same time smooth texture to it."

Remote control buttons are the brunette's favourite snack and her total tally is now over 60,000 pieces of the harmful substance - which cannot be digested by the human body.

Kailyn's waitressing job sadly feeds her wacky craving. She admits: "Working at the restaurant, I come into constant contact with plastic cocktail swords.

"On a normal, non-stressful day, I will eat my way through 15 whole swords before leaving work."

Kailyn is one of several unsual addicts featured on the TLC series, My Strange Addiction. Other bonkers compulsions covered on the show include bathing in bleach, sniffing petrol and eating cat food.
