Woman’s healthy eating habits may have taken unhealthy turn
DEAR ABBY: I have recently developed what I consider to be a very healthy lifestyle. I exercise, eat lots of fruits and vegetables and mostly whole foods.
My problem is I think I may be becoming obsessed. It has become harder and harder to eat away from home. I constantly plan what I’m going to eat next. I’m still happy, but too much of my time is being spent on this.
Apparently, there’s a disorder similar to anorexia known as orthorexia. It’s the psychological obsession with eating healthy. I don’t think I could be classified as an extreme case, but what should I do before I become one? — OBSESSED IN BOSTON
