Product Details

Have some Americans taken healthy eating too far? Orthorexia is an unhealthy obsession with eating only healthy food, and is characterized by excessive and extreme focus on quality of food rather than quantity. Consider some of these orthorexic principles:

  • Does your client care more about the virtue of what you eat – how "clean" it is – than the pleasure from eating it?
  • Does your client sacrifice experiences previously enjoyed to eat the food you believe is right?
  • Does your client understand the health impact of excessive dietary restrictions?
  • Does your client feel guilt or self-loathing when they stray from your "clean" diet?

Recognize potential orthorexic issues, teach your clients to break free and find a way back to a balanced, truly healthy way of eating and enjoying life.

Learning Objectives

  • Articulate, assess and diagnose orthorexic philosophies and behaviors.
  • Assist clients in establishing balanced perspectives of healthy eating and food enjoyment.
