What is Orthorexia?

“We live in a culture that celebrates and encourages disordered eating,” my dietitian tells me. We meet every other week, and talk about how to eat intuitively; how to dissociate the words “good” and “bad” from food, and how difficult that is, especially when diet talk is everywhere. This conversation is especially pertinent in light of the new Weight Watchers app for children, Kurbo, which perpetuates the very behaviors I now go to therapy to unlearn.
