Orthorexia: Why it’s healthy to eat “unhealthy” foods

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha talks about orthorexia and why it is important to be able to eat all kinds of food without stress — including foods that you judge as unhealthy. 

I see orthorexia as a restrictive eating disorder. The goalposts may be slightly altered, but it is still restricting certain types of food that the sufferer deems to be "unhealthy."

If you have orthorexia you may find that you feel stressed about eating things like:

  • Fatty foods
  • Sugar and sweets
  • Salt
  • Artificial colors, flavors or preservatives
  • Pesticides or genetic modification
  • Non-organic foods
  • Animal products
  • Dairy products
  • Anything considered to be unhealthy

People with orthorexia often also get obsessive about foods that they consider to be "healthy". So supplements may be excessively bought and used. Organic foods, foods that are sold as "health" foods.

Male vs Female Treatment Experiences in Eating Disorder Treatment

00:0000:00

In this podcast Tabitha talks to Philipa Hay about recent research that looked into male autobiographies of eating disorders and recovery experiences. 

Link to the full research paper --> https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5485468/

Study Abstract

Eating disorders are increasingly recognized as a problem for men but help-seeking is low and little is known about their treatment experiences. This paper sought to determine the treatment experiences of men who have suffered from an eating disorder using autobiographical data. Inclusion criteria were autobiographies of men who had experienced an eating disorder and sought any form of treatment for this, written in the English language, published between 1995 and 2015, and available for purchase in 2016. The search resulted in six books that were thematically analyzed. Analysis of data resulted in two broad themes (1. Positive experiences; 2. Negative experiences) with sub-themes. With regards to the first theme, factors such as concern of staff members, therapist’s expertise (in treating eating disorders in men), and a collaborative treatment approach were considered favorable for treatment. In contrast to the first theme, apathy of staff members, the authors’ own negative preconceptions, treatment providers being perceived as prioritizing financial concerns, perceived as incompetent and judgmental behavior of therapist(s), and time limitations of sessions were considered unfavorable treatment experiences. In this study, the perceived success of treatment depended on therapist’s features and the form of treatment provided. Further research examining these is indicated.
