Has anyone had the "orthorexia discussion" with a family member or significant other? How did that go?
For those who have not familiar with Dr. Bratman's criteria/definition, you can take the quiz using the following link:
I had one full "yes" answer and one partial. Question 2 was a yes.
I include the question below, and my answer in italics, for your consideration. I'll let you guess which was my other partial yes answer...
Do you plan tomorrow's food today? Yes—people who don’t plan their meals ahead of time are the ones with an “eating disorder,” in my opinion. I have meat thawing for my meals throughout the week. If you don’t plan your meals you’re not well prepared, in my opinion. (“Tomorrow” is pretty arbitrary. Most people don’t even plan as far ahead as dinner.) Not planning for future meals leads to waste more often than not. And it’s only in the last 100 years that we can afford the luxury of not knowing where our next meal is coming from. In that time obesity has skyrocketed, diabetes is common, we have conditions like “acid reflux” which is completely avoidable (it’s caused by eating grains) etc., etc. This is a very bad question, and calls into question the appropriateness and validity of this test.
