With all the 'overweight' and health threads lately I've been thinking about the rise in Orthorexia which I have noticed greatly the last 5 years in particular. I find it interesting that while obesity levels are at all time highs, we also have a proportion of the population so obsessed with healthy eating it's become the new ED.
The cross fit classes, clean eating, paleo, organic, high carb vegan diets are sending people out of control with disordered thinking about eating and food. They drive their FB friends bonkers with 453 photos of them posing at the gym and of their paleo dinners. They are losing friends bc they refuse to eat out lest they eat something bad and their partners have ear plugs in rather than listen the the lecturing about the evil meat pie they ate for lunch. They can't stop thinking and obsessing over healthy eating to the point it's affecting their lives.
It is currently not part of the DSM but I read a while ago it was to be added to the next edition.
