One thought on “Now there is a ‘Healthy Eating’ Disorder?!

  1. Nice, balanced discussion of the issue! Yeah, when phrased that way, it does sound like a parody of an eating disorder!

    I prefer, “An unhealthy obsession with eating healthy food.” The key word is “obsession,” defined as “an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind.”

    The problem is not the interest, but the excessive, intrusive preoccupation with the interest. Yes, eating healthy food is great, but if that becomes the main thing you think about all day, you are kind of missing the point of getting healthy in the first place: to live.
