 Recently, I came across an article that really had caught my eye.  This article made me more aware of how healthy eating can sometimes take a nasty turn and actually become unhealthy. Too many times, I admittedly let thoughts of food reign over my actions and it is easy to let these thoughts consume your day–I never really knew this was an actual condition. I learned that it IS okay to let go when it comes to one’s dietary habits and I hope this article may help others to ease up as well . I couldn’t have written this article better myself, so I decided to attach it HERE for you to read.  I truly believe that many of my good friends, clients, and even myself deal with ‘orthorexia’.   I’m interested to hear if you or anyone you know falls into this category and what you have to say.  Food is meant to be savored and enjoyed and not to be an unhealthy obsession.
