Eating too healthy is now a disorder. Orthorexia Nervosa is defined as being concerned with eating only pure foods- ones that haven't come in contact with pesticides, and have no artificial flavors or colors. If you are concerned about putting only whole foods in your body, there is something wrong with you. You need to be prescribed a pill so that you won't question your food, and stay dumbed down with your system full of  preservatives, aspartame, yellow 5, high fructose corn syrup, or MSG.   Sadly, I know plenty of people who would agree with these "experts,"  who think that when I look at the ingredients on something before I eat it (or don't) that I'm nuts, or that eating seaweed is insane. If you think it doesn't matter, it does! You are a direct reflection of what your body intakes. You eat lots of sugary fake shit and you'll be a spaced out zombie. Eat things that grow in the ground and you'll be stable. Sure, its a little more complicated than that, but the essence is true.
The real mental patients are the ones who eat whatever is advertised to them, who believe the sweet surprise commercials,  who think vegetables are gross, but that eating microwaved ground up cow parts are tasty.  

persimmons, please.

  1. I think their is a huge difference in caring about eating whole foods like you do and people who take it to a disordered eating level.
    I have known girls who claim to be vegan to hide their obsession with eating only "pure" foods, really foods they deem safe because they think they can eat them without gaining weight. I have known girls who have worked out for hours and survived on meals of spinach. I also think the current craze for "detox diets" comes from this unhealthy obsession. I think orthorexia is just a precursor to anorexia.
