othorexia nervosa : When being ‘healthy’ creates unhealthy weightloss

Matthew Fort: Too much health food points to a social malaise | Life and style | guardian.co.uk.

Honestly I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry, but this quote in particular caught my eye.

I’d have to plead guilty to most of those notionally, except for feeling incredibly guilty when I eat something that indulges my grosser appetites, and the weight loss provision. Try as I might, I don’t seem to be able to achieve that. It’s probably just as well; the weight loss associated with obsessive orthorexia nervosa can be dangerous.
