Aaron and Glenys tackle the topic of orthorexia. Orthorexia, while not an official eating disorder, describes the the obsessive behavior that some people develop in pursuing a "healthy" diet. Like any eating disorder, it can be complex and involve other mental health issues, such as anxiety disorders. And while most people don't have orthorexia, your hosts see more and more people showing up in their practices who are suffering from symptoms of orthorexia linked to years of chronic dieting - and it's not helping their health in any way.
