IS OPTING OUT OF PROCESSED FOOD THE NEW EATING DISORDER ?




(The Organic Prepper) It’s time for an intervention. We need to talk. Are you concerned about the stuff they call “food” at the grocery store?  Do you opt for whole foods most of the time, and feel unwell if you eat so-called “junk food”?  Are your views about food causing you to make changes in your day-to-day life? Do you believe there is a connection between the food you eat and your physical and mental well-being? Then, it’s time to face reality.  If you choose to eat food without chemicals on a regular basis, you, my friend, are mentally ill.

It’s called Orthorexia Nervosa.



A study found on PubMed explains. (Wow, it’s like they know me.)

Orthorexia is an obsessive-compulsive process characterized by extreme care for and selection of what is considered to be pure ‘healthy’ food. This ritual leads to a very restrictive diet and social isolation as a compensation. Orthorexics obsessively avoid foods which may contain artificial colours, flavours, preservant agents, pesticide residues or genetically modified ingredients, unhealthy fats, foods containing too much salt or too much sugar and other components. The way of preparation, kitchenware and other tools used are also part of the obsessive ritual.
