When Healthy Eating Becomes an Obsession w/ Christy Harrison

Christy Harrison

Is it possible to be too obsessed with healthy eating?

Today we talk with non-diet dietitian Christy Harrison about a condition known as orthorexia, which is an unhealthy preoccupation with healthy eating.

Christy is the perfect person to talk to about this condition because she’s both a registered dietitian nutritionist and certified intuitive eating counselor. She’s also the host of the popular Food Psych Podcast, which explores people’s relationships with food and paths to body acceptance.

This is an episode you don’t want to miss!

In this episode we cover:

  1. Why being extremely “healthy” may not be a good thing
  2. What exactly orthorexia is and why it’s harmful for your mental and physical health
  3. How do you know if you (or a loved one) has orthorexia? What are patterns to look for?
  4. How social media may be part of the problem (and also part of the solution)
  5. How do you go about treating orthorexia
  6. What are 3 things you can start to do today to have a better relationship with food
