Ok, now what if you are too obsessed with eating healthy food?

Posted Jul 10 2009 10:13pm
Those getting too obsessed with eating healthy foods are now falling victim to a new eating disorder called orthorexia
Get this wikipedia tells us that:

Orthorexia, or orthorexia nervosa is a term coined by Steven Bratman, a Colorado MD, to denote an eating disorder characterized by excessive focus on eating healthy foods. In rare cases, this focus may turn into a fixation so extreme that it can lead to severe malnutrition or even death.[1][2]

Ok, on my side I can reveal a secret I never 1 day sat to count calories, according to abc.go.com Orthorexia: Obsessing Over Health Food reading through this article It really makes me think 'love the food, make healthy food and do not be too overly as in do not cross the line - too much of everything is dangerous

My advice: Grab yourself this book,
