Orthorexia Nervosa — When Healthy Eating Becomes Unhealthy

Orthorexia Nervosa, Healthy Eating, Anorexia, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

Orthorexia nervosa, the “health food eating disorder,” gets its name from the Greek word ortho, meaning straight, proper or correct. This exaggerated focus on food can be seen today in some people who follow lifestyle movements such as “raw,” “clean,” and “paleo.”

— Rebecca Charlotte Reynolds, Nutrition lecturer at University of New South Wales (Australia), March 25, 2015
