"Yes. Although some people may be so concerned with the quality of food they eat, they may not get enough calories. Perhaps the gentlemen sayanan described above. For example, if they think food from a grocery store is not healthy enough (saw a…"

"I guess my point was that a person with orthorexia nervosa has an anxiety disorder that, in addition to severe restriction of types of foods, may also cause one to reduce their intake (calories) to a dangerous level. You can be orthorexic and…"
""the difference between us and someone suffering from orthorexia nervosa is that that person can actually die from malnutrition because they are afraid that nearly all food is unhealthy"

I found this out from Tim Van Orden's DVD. The term is Orthorexia. The word definition means ortho - correct/right and orexis - appetite, aka the correct diet. As in, we are people who are concerned about the quality of the food we eat, and taking care to structure our diet according to what we perceive are the right foods, and avoiding those which are unhealthy.How screwed up is this society when taking care of yourself puts you in the minority!

I've been watching Harley's youtube videos for a while with my husband. He actually is the one who started looking into nutrition because his father was diagnosed with prostate cancer, and he got surgery for it. It was annoying as hell because the surgery treats the symptom, not the underlying problem. Anyway, we started in June/July of 2011, and have been working on it steadily. We're lucky that we saw Harley, Arnstein, Dan McDonald and Tim Van Orten, so we were able to bypass the Vitalis/Wolf/etc bulls***. The transition was natural to us because it was in the progression of eating more naturally, looking at ingredients, eating without pesticides and other poop, eating local, eating organic, and then this. We've had some set backs, but we always get up and get at this again. By now, we cut out the meat and dairy and are focusing on becoming LFRV instead of just vegans. We've bought food from a wholesaler this week for the first time! It was so weird because we had to go to the shipping yard where all the trucks are but we did it! Oh yes, we're also very much into natural hygiene. Truthfully, the reason why I'm applying for a membership now compared to my lack of before, is because of this thread http://www.30bananasaday.com/forum/topics/make-up-fake-up?id=268407... It burns me up how women justify cosmetics and beautification when it's all just mind control and propaganda.
