    I believe the original intent of the diagnosis was to describe people who do not actually eat enough, using nutrition as an excuse.

    org/wiki/Orthorexia

    As with any mental diagnosis the line is indistinct. One could easily argue that a fear of heights is perfectly healthy as well, yet vertigo is well established.

    Does this mean that my insurance has to cover a gallon of Ben & Jerry's? If I get Bryers all natural, is that good ice-cream, or bad ice-cream? What about apple pie? Or pineapple upside down cake?

    I feel a serious headache coming on, maybe I can get my Doctor to prescribe a slice of pepperoni and a beer!

    yes, I will continue to eat my fruit and veggies, and also drink my water (are they going to create a mental health disorder for THAT too?). Can we create a mental health disease for those who make up crap like that?

    I need to eat healthy to stop all of the voices in my head from arguing with each other.

    That's absolutely rediculous! I'm certain I'd be in a straight-jacket.

    Oh well, so be it. I will remain an advocate of healthy whole foods and functional fitness and working daily.
