 This breakthrough book addresses orthorexia nervosa, a new eating disorder where eating "correctly" has become a harmful obsession for individuals, one that causes them to adopt progressively more rigid diets that not only eliminate crucial nutrients and food groups, but ultimately cost them their overall health, personal relationships, and emotional well-being. It includes an expert analysis of some of today's most popular diets - from The Zone to macrobiotics, raw-foodism to food allergy elimination - and shows not only how they can lead to orthorexia, but how they are often built on faulty logic rather than sound medical advice. Health Food Junkies offers you detailed, practical advice and tools to conquer orthorexia nervosa, rediscover the joys of eating, and reclaim your life.
