This term was defined to describe people with health food obsession. A new york times article talked about how this obsession can be compared to eating disorders of anorexia and OCD. He says that orthorexics are anorexics in disguise. Hmmm. While there is no clinical criteria for diagnosis it is a wide term that is being thrown arounds. I think that they do have a point to an extent. I would diagnose myself with orthorexia. I love healthy foods, eating them, reading about them and blogging about them. Do i have a disorder???
