And yet, I can't to find any numbers or any evidence to support any growing trend?

Not misrepresenting anything. Just posting a spate of recent articles focusing on it and the way they are focusing.
The reason I've posted this is because of the recent push in the media and possible reasons why and to keep an eye on it.
Don't let the fact that the discussion took a few tangents throw you. In addition, as mentioned before, there don't seem to be any numbers of how many suffer from this around.
Does this really have to become a new diagnosis? (It's not currently recognized as a clinical diagnosis in the DSM-5.) The term orthorexia nervosa literally means “fixation on righteous eating.”
That people get carried away with "righteous eating" is simply a form of some other underlying condition, like OCD. The we propose clinical diagnoses for getting carried away with the number 6? With hand washing? With flipping light switches three times> No. We simply call those OCD.
So again, who's pushing this and why is more the question. How is it linked. Up for discussion, not ridiculous.
Also, a real question to you. What is the clinical diagnosis or proposed clinical diagnosis for people eating only junk or unhealthy food?

We may be backsliding over in 'the community' again
Anya. They [APA] had to even redact the DSM4 into
the 4TR(Text Revision)... maybe just to avoid some
juicy class actions and maybe sufficient negative
publicity to get ::EDIT--- THEM --- EDIT:: ignored.
But to call someone defiant with the stats about the
food on [the plaintiff's] side crazy?
I don't mind at all eating unhealthy once in a while..
the taste reminds me of what food should have been
like from a perverted memory from my childhood. Hmmm.
Back to the journals for me.
I'd hate to think of what they'd think of the food my Nana used to cook us as kids! Lawdy!
Leg of lamb with mint jelly
garlic mashers (or as we call it, garlicky mashed potatoes)
Garlic beans (green beans)
rolls, double bread basically
chocolate cream pie
banana cream pie
coconut cream pie
That was just one dinner! The day we'd have Hungarian Goulash (the real kind, not the Americanized version of burger meat with macaroni), with TONS of sour cream and paprika on top over noodles. Loads of seconds or thirds, and PLENTY of dessert, and would you believe that woman looked like she was anorexic? All the woman in my family did! But my Nan was full blooded Hungarian and was NOT afraid of food!
- Eat a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and fiber.
- Eat fish at least twice a week.
- Limit how much saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol you eat. Only 30% of your daily calories should come from fat, with very little of that from saturated fats.
- Select fat-free, 1% fat, and low-fat dairy products.
- Cut back on foods containing partially hydrogenated vegetable oils to reduce trans fat in your diet.
- Limit your salt intake.
One way to make sure that your diet is rich in fruits, vegetables, and fiber, and low in saturated fats, is to divide your plate at each meal: half vegetables, 1/4 high-quality protein (like legumes -- terrific sources of protein and great for a healthy heart!), and 1/4 for fish or a very lean meat.
And remember, you should get your nutrients from foods themselves, the antioxidants and other heart-healthy goodies found in foods like blueberries, beans, and artichokes don't pack the same punch when they're not in food form.
And avoid fad diets, advises Mosca. "Almost every one may result in short-term weight loss but leave you weighing even more a year later, and preventing weight gain is one of the best ways to prevent developing heart disease risk factors."
In the long run I fear exhaling without a charcoal filter on
will get you a ticket in 15-20 years. That evil carbon dioxide...
in the meantime this needs to be called out by the media for
its rediculous application to a very small percentage of we
the hypochondriacs. To that condition I can and will never admit.
