For all those that are saying that the article is incorrect and is unable to differentiate between simply wanting to eat healthy and OCD I
Isn't this "obsession" and it growing part of the growing BS in foods these days?
Forget about basic health, isn't this becoming a life and death situation?
Fluoride in our water and toothpaste, aspartame in almost everything, GM Crops and arsenic in our water...... isn't this life and death?
Hey you got a bullet in your chest, but don't be OCD about it, you should be fine no need to go see a doctor.
I realize many will find what I am saying... generalizing but I don't think so.
The same people who call this a disorder have not blasted medicines that causes kidney failure, such medicines are still being sold and our water is
still being poisoned but nothing on that front and you say there is no conspiracy here?
Sorry... I don't buy it!
In a quest to cure themselves of a specific disorder, or simply just taking healthy eating to extremes, orthorexics develop their own increasingly
specific food rules. Working out how to stick to their self-imposed dietary regimen takes up more and more of their time and they are compelled to
plan meals several days ahead. They tend to take a 'survival kit' of their own food with them when they go out, as they cannot eat readily available
foods for fear of fat, chemicals or whatever their particular phobia might be.
See look at the above stupidity.
They are using the word phobia very loosely.
Yes working out and getting fit and being healty is ABSOLUTELY like a a full-time job! And just like in a job you often have to plan things in
advance, there's nothing obsessive compulsive about that.
I go to the gym and i keep a journal of what I lifted, does that mean that because I plan to change my schedule of which muscle groups I plan on
attacking in a month's time I am being obsessive?
Celebrex is still being sold and doctors are still prescribing it.
Nothing on that!
Listen, let's talk about the facade of paranoia
Govt. and and some reactionaries think that we have to overhaul security because of so many false flag operations, they have become paranoid and want
to live in a surveillance society, that's OCD.
THe threat of food being used against us is NOT a facade, it is very true!
So how is this OCD?
Fine, take the Bratman Test for orthorexia'
The Bratman Test for Orthorexia
-- Do you spend more than 3 hours a day thinking about your diet?
-- Do you plan your meals several days ahead?
-- Is the nutritional value of your meal more important than the pleasure of eating it?
-- Has the quality of your life decreased as the quality of your diet has increased?
-- Have you become stricter with yourself lately?
-- Does your self-esteem get a boost from eating healthily?
-- Have you given up foods you used to enjoy in order to eat the 'right' foods
-- Does your diet make it difficult for you to eat out, distancing you from family and friends?
-- Do you feel guilty when you stray from your diet?
-- Do you feel at peace with yourself and in total control when you eat healthily?
-- Yes to 4 or 5 of the above questions means it is time to relax more about food.
-- Yes to all of them means a full-blown obsession with eating healthy food.
I'll give them what is in bold, otherwise it's complete BS and whoever made this test probably never stepped into a gym.
