Obsession with healthy food

Taking healthy foods low in saturated fat, cholesterol, salt or sugars is one of the usual medical recommendations. However, the obsession for every milligram of food that we take to the mouth or orthorexia, as well as insane, can hide some underlying psychic disorder. The difficulty of these obsessive cases is the identification of the symptoms. The people who star them tend to have a healthy appearance, so it is very difficult to know when they cross the line that separates a good habit from another sickly one. So, the question is, what is that line?

Everything taken to the extreme can be harmful. In this case, although a priori eating healthy is a “pseudosaludable” behavior, if you live by and for that, it becomes transformed into an obsession. The pathology associated with this behavior is orthorexia. Defined in the year 2000, although for many it is a perfect stranger. This behavior disorder is characterized by the development of extremely rigid eating habits, based on a control of the nutritional components of food and the demonization of certain foods. People with orthorexia only eat products from organic farming, free of transgenics, chemicals, pesticides or herbicides. Therefore, their menus are only formed by natural foods, without preservatives or sugars and free of any type of fats.

Although the World Health Organization (WHO) does not yet recognize it as an illness, its course has strong implications for the physical and psychological well-being of the person. The studies carried out to conclude that behind that obsessive meticulousness there is usually a mental disorder. Read more: Beautiful windows at St Paul’s

Eating disorders are usually progressive. So, if at first, the person stops eating industrial pastries and processed products, later, and if the disorder develops, it is likely that little by little he will eliminate from his diet necessary nutrients such as vegetables, meats or vegetables. ecological

Each time they become more demanding and rigid with everything related to food. They are eliminating more food groups that do not usually replace adequately with others, which in the long run translates into significant deficits of essential vitamins or minerals.

I wander round the shops, I browse on the net and I agonise over and over about what to buy someone, so I end up buying precisely nothing. Then it’s all a mad rush and I fall into that “anything will do” phase that you find yourself and it’s usually sifting through what’s left especially if it’s and event like Christmas or Valentines Day for example.
