Orthorexia is a type of disordered eating characterized by an extreme fixation on “healthy” eating– one so severe that it interferes with daily life. People who struggle with this condition may be obsessed with checking nutrition labels and ingredients to ensure “clean eating” habits and are known to cut out entire food groups if perceived as unhealthy. 

These behaviors, when persistent and extreme, can result in malnutrition, severe anxiety, and other adverse effects. If this sounds like you or someone you love, our team at Focus is here to offer help.
