Good to know I've been keeping this disorder at bay for ages now.

Orthorexia - because if you're a vegan, you're irrational and must have a disease. We gave it a name and everything.

What they're talking about excludes some vegan foods as well.

Just because you're a vegan doesn't mean you aren't irrational and don't have a disease.

if you take healthy eating too far then it is no longer healthy eating.

BTW, that was a stupid farking article.

At the point where you're avoiding salad dressing because of the calories, it's time to re-evaluate your life choices.

Paleo nutters?

::Reads article::

Huh, pretty close actually
 
2013-05-02 02:34:17 AM  
I eat much more fruits and veggies from late Spring through Fall, but that's because it's available fresh.  But I don't eat nearly the calories in the Summer that I do during the Winter months because heavier food simply isn't as appetizing.  I'm more active in the Summer, so overall, I lose weight during those months.  Seems like kind of a natural thing to me - but then I don't cut out meat and cheese and dairy.

There are some salad dressings that will kill you.

that said, anyone who brags about their nutirional program on facebook at least 3 times a week is not healthy.  At least not mentally.

Misleading article is misleading. This is not eating healthy food, this is following weird fad diets. Move along.

Fark me. I got a roomate at the moment that takes healthy eating to the extreme. Nothing that came in a can.
only certain types of food cause of his blood type.
organic everything. Including soap. Wont even detergent in his laundry cause of the chemicals in it.

no problem taking various chemical drugs on the weekends though.

laundry detergent bad. Ketamine and acid good.

I just dont understand some people

Lean meats, vegetables, fruits, beans, and limiting starches and sugars is a fad?

I forgot that the only "normal" diet is nothing but bread, ice cream, and potatoes.

I've been having difficulty not gaining weight.  I've been trying to drop about 5-10 lbs. I'm probably eating 1500-1800 calories a day and being pretty active (working 10-12 hour days, about half of that on my feet) but the weight won't come off.  Kind of a bummer to have to be careful about what I put in my mouth ALL of the time.  I definitely miss the days when I could eat any damn thing I wanted to and as much of it as I wanted and it had no effect on the size of my pants.  Right now I want a slice of apple pie a la mode so bad I can taste it but I can't have it.  Guess that's what you get for crossing 40.

The foods themselves aren't a fad. Inventing and marketing a false narrative around the foods in order to sell books, seminars, merchandise, a "culture", etc. is.

You know who else ate meat, vegetables, and beans with limited starches? Our grandparents. Only they didn't need a brand name for it.

Fano: In what way could green beans ever be unhealthy?


Dude, paleo nutters argue about all sorts of shiat like that. Lentils, legumes, root vegetables, certain fruits, all are points of debate among the various paleo sub-cults.

I remember reading a 30 page thread about how unhealthy bananas were on a paleo thread. Bananas, dude.

I sound fat: There are some salad dressings that will kill you.


CSB:  I worked with woman, easily 450 lbs, who decided to lose weight by eating salad.  She went to a grocery store salad bar for lunch and came back with, literally, about a cubic foot of salad made up of cheese, ham, turkey, pepperonis, cheese, boiled eggs, more cheese, croutons, bacon, and just enough green things to justify to herself calling it a salad.  She upended about 80% of a bottle of ranch dressing onto it ('cuz the whole bottle would have been just too much), then ate the whole thing.

About a week later her meth-head brother killed her and their parents.

But it was low-fat ranch dressing, so you're wrong.  Some salad dressing don't kill you.

I'm kidding, he only killed the parents.  That's not such a cool story after all.  But it is true.

Have you seen an endocrinologist? My uncle went and got some blood work done when he was about your age and it turned out the weight gain was not only age but hormone-related and some thyroid medication put his metabolism much closer to normal. He's been a really big endocrinology fanboy since, possibly because he could have the odd bear-claw or glass of beer again.

Well, I don't think that's what the article was saying, but I would definitely say veganism is some sort of eating disorder, usually combined with some sort of personality disorder.

teenage mutant ninja rapist: ...only certain types of food cause of his blood type.

My boss actually tried that one for a while. Of all the diet fads out there, that one is definitely the silliest and most bizarre.

Aquapope: Some salad dressing don't kill you.


Salad dressing doesn't kill people, people kill salad dressing covered bullets. Or something.
What always cracks me up is when someone goes to a restaurant, orders a huge appetizer or two, and a salad with a ton of ranch dressing, a large entree (deep fried of course), and the carbiest dessert they can find on the menu, only to wash it down with a diet soda. Because drinking a regular soda could make them gain weight. Facepalm, apply directly to the forehead.

Nothing wrong with that. I got a friend who likes Diet Coke, and only because of the taste, he doesn't need to lose weight or anything. I prefer regular Coke myself, preferably in a can, and not Pepsi (except in restaurants - fountain colas tend to taste the same to me). That diet stuff (Nutrasweet?) always tasted like concentrated evil to me.
