What is Orthorexia?

"It's great to eat healthy food, and most of us could benefit by paying a little more attention to what we eat. However, some people have the opposite problem: they take the concept of healthy eating to such an extreme that it becomes an obsession. I call this state of mind orthorexia nervosa: literally, "fixation on righteous eating."

Such people are sometimes affectionately called "healthfood junkies." However, in some cases, orthorexia goes beyond a mere lifestyle choice. Obsession with healthy food can progress to the point where it crowds out other activities and interests, impairs relationships, and even becomes physically dangerous. When this happens, orthorexia takes on the dimensions of a true eating disorder, like anorexia nervosa or bulimia.
Do you wish that occasionally you could just eat, and not think about whether it's good for you? Has your diet made you socially isolated? Is it impossible to imagine going through a whole day without paying attention to your diet, and just living and loving? Does it sound beyond your ability to eat a meal prepared with love by your mother - one single meal - and not try to control what she serves you? Do you have trouble remembering that love, and joy, and play and creativity are more important than food? Have you gotten your weight so low that people think you may have anorexia?

If you recognize yourself in these questions, you might have orthorexia."
-Steven Bratman

IMO, length of life does not necessarily equal quality of life.

Farkers:bananas rule!
Veggans: it's surprising on how much one can pedal and work with 2 bananas as nourishment!

Bacon is meat candy.

Rev K I eat everything on that list, but I compensate by drinking vast quantities of beer and Crown Royal.

They say the difference between an incoherent street person and the bright but alcoholic college professor type is....nutrition.

If this doesn't occupy at least three slots, the lister is a fag.

I agree about the spinach. I make a killer spinach, salmon and avocado salad.

/Pine nuts FTW!

Strangely missing.
2007-01-10 10:45:31 PM  
Your list wants steak.
2007-01-10 10:45:58 PM  
i_hate_milk: No kimchi? What a load of shiat!

the kind of shiat you'd find buried underground, or the kind that goes directly into the toilet?
2007-01-10 10:46:05 PM  
mryoop789: Cauliflower is nasty.

Just the smell of it makes me sick.
2007-01-10 10:46:12 PM

2007-01-10 10:46:48 PM

2007-01-10 10:46:53 PM  
I like pouring honey in a glass of milk and eating it with a spoon. Just glad I can eat it unlike my mom who is allergic to honey.
2007-01-10 10:46:53 PM  
i used to hate raw cauliflower until i found out it's good to dip in hummus or baba ganoush.
2007-01-10 10:47:57 PM  
Your dog wants flaxseed?
2007-01-10 10:49:21 PM  
I like how he totally left off spinach and other leafy greens. Not to mention whole grains.

ABS POWER diet is a way better list of essentials.
2007-01-10 10:49:43 PM  

"Hookers drenched in chocolate" strangely absent from the list...

chocolate-covered banana box?
2007-01-10 10:50:26 PM  
Until barley pop is on teh list I call bullshiat.
2007-01-10 10:51:27 PM  
Everyone knows there are only 4 foods that need to be on that list.

2007-01-10 10:53:12 PM  
No Spam? I'm shocked.
2007-01-10 10:53:56 PM  
WTF does this have to do with disability insurance? There's no way to even get to that page when starting from the main page.
2007-01-10 10:54:37 PM

I shoot friendlies:

"If this doesn't occupy at least three slots, the lister is a fag."

I got two of them, but what's the third one? Hepatitis A?
2007-01-10 10:55:47 PM  
From the Article

Some people even find that it adds a delightfully nutty flavor to their morning coffee.

I got your delightfully nutty flavor...Swinging!

have we had our CLEANSING this year?
2007-01-10 10:57:28 PM  
See, here's what you do.
1. Take all the ingredients in that list and make a huge shake out of them.
2. Dump that crap down the sink and have a Guinness.
2007-01-10 10:57:50 PM  
jonezee: Miso

Careful. Too much soy will give you man-boobs.
2007-01-10 10:58:31 PM  
Didn't RTFA. Don't care. All I know is that my one true culinary love has been missing from my life for years. Taco Bell Chilito, if you're out there... COME HOME!
2007-01-10 10:59:14 PM  
No beer on the list?
2007-01-10 10:59:40 PM  
Can vegans eat honey? Or is it considered an animal product?

/A meal isn't a meal unless it had a mother.

Substitue coli for brocli...

2007-01-10 11:04:37 PM  
jennyz You forgot ham and garlic bread.
2007-01-10 11:05:44 PM  
Make this right:

Substitute broccoli for cauliflower...

/still do not want
//both are nasty veggies
2007-01-10 11:05:44 PM  
GuyCaballero: Careful. Too much soy will give you man-boobs.

Self-sufficiency is my goal
2007-01-10 11:06:01 PM  
cornreaper: Can vegans eat honey?

They shouldn't
2007-01-10 11:07:56 PM  
Heysomefarkingpenguinatemysammich!: You forgot ham and garlic bread.

Ham is like thick bacon....

But yeah, bread should be on that list, just about any form of bread will do.

So, let me revise

2007-01-10 11:08:53 PM  
cato113: They shouldn't

That is so gay.
2007-01-10 11:10:24 PM  
Flaxseed, the Barry Bonds key to, um, longevity.
2007-01-10 11:11:05 PM  
Yeah, don't make any effort to develop new tastes folks.

Just keep on eating the same crap you've been eating since you were 10, just like you keep listening to the same music.
2007-01-10 11:11:18 PM  
Translation: "Eat healthy you stupid farks!"

Why is everyone so stupid these days?
2007-01-10 11:12:29 PM  
RockIsDead: Just keep on eating the same crap you've been eating since you were 10, just like you keep listening to the same music.

Are you looking at my head gear?
2007-01-10 11:12:48 PM  
Celery is on their damn list. That totally destroys all their credibility.
2007-01-10 11:15:42 PM  
Dire: Celery is on their damn list. That totally destroys all their credibility.

I'm thinking that they meant "15 food decorations you shouldn't live without." Everything on the list looks like garnish to me.
2007-01-10 11:16:25 PM  

I pray that you were simply providing said link as a response to my query, nothing more.....
2007-01-10 11:16:54 PM  

Surprised to see another fan of McEwan's Scotch Ale.
2007-01-10 11:17:10 PM  
How can califlower be so bad when broccoli is so good? And I love olive oil, can't stand olives. Flaxseed, wtf? Green tea is horrible as well. I love me some Lipton Black, or Lipton White tea though. Sorry, I'd rather die early then eat califlower sprinkled with flaxseeds and wash it down with green tea.
2007-01-10 11:18:11 PM  
mryoop789: Cauliflower is nasty.

Agreed, but my mom makes this yam with marshmallow thing every thanksgiving that is pure evil. Which makes them even worser(!) than normal.

And what's wrong with putting peanut butter and/or cheese on celery? Great to munch on while watching the game. Bonus: it gets rid of the taste of the cauliflower and yams.
2007-01-10 11:21:14 PM  
Most everything on that lists sounds tasty. Except flaxseed. What the hell is flaxseed?
