• Cutting out entire food groups (processed foods, sugar, gluten)
• Loss of Weight
• Increase concern with avoiding GMO foods
• Rare Cases – Death
Hey guys! Today we’re gonna talk about a very serious disease that was just invented, it’s called Orthorexia. I’m just gonna go down the list to see if you may have this disease, you may have it. Number 1, do you have a fixation or a focus over the quality of food that you put in your body? Do you limit foods to organic, whole raw food, farm fresh? If you do, go ahead and comment below let me know. Next one, do you have the concept that anything bad you put in your body should be avoided? yea, you might have this. Next one, are you cutting out entire food groups like processed foods, sugar and gluten? Now guys, you might think I’m actually just joking around but I am totally not making this up. There’s actually people out there that are going with this and believing this crap. Okay, next one, are you losing weight because you’re cutting out the food groups? Last one, do you have an increase concern with avoiding GMO foods? Now, I think this whole thing was totally created by having the food manufacturing companies get in a room and come up with some new strategy to people to eat their food, I really do, it’s just ridiculous. So here’s the risk factors, malnutrition, now i’m trying to figure out how can you be malnourished if you’re eating quality foods, you’re avoiding the bad foods, just doesn’t make sense to me. Depressed, I don’t think so, anxiety, rare cases death, really? you’re gonna die by eating health foods and avoiding bad foods? that makes a lot of sense. So now what is their solution? well the cure is psychotherapy and drugs will cure you of this very dangerous disease. Guys, put your comments below and tell me what you think about this. I’m really curious.
