Do you try to eat only healthy, locally sourced food? Do you maybe not eat when the situation involves you not eating healthy food? If you were on a long road trip, and the only food option for the next eight hours was McDonald's, would you refuse to eat?Congratulations, you might be orthorexic. According to doctors, the number of people who unhealthily fixate on only eating healthy and good food is on the rise, and it sometimes isn't pretty:"The obsession about which foods are 'good' and which are 'bad' means orthorexics can end up malnourished. Their dietary restrictions commonly cause sufferers to feel proud of their 'virtuous' behaviour even if it means that eating becomes so stressful their personal relationships can come under pressure and they become socially isolated."So, be careful. Sometimes you just have to eat, no matter what the food is. If you can't get behind that, you should probably see a doctor.
