“Clean Eating’s Dirty Secret”

ORTHOREXIA: an obsession with eating foods that one considers healthy.

  • a medical condition in which the sufferer systematically avoids specific foods that they believe to be harmful.

I watched a documentary on Orthorexia today and found it surprisingly fascinating. I’d never considered how much influence YouTubers and Bloggers discussing health and lifestyle really had. Just as I didn’t consider whether this was a positive or negative impact.

Most of the people promoting a “healthy” lifestyle on the internet have no qualifications in the area. Grace Victory’s BBC Documentary: “Clean Eating’s Dirty Secrets” is certainly worth a watch.
