Many of us who are into health and wellness learn to be discerning in our choices around food and nutrition. And that’s a great thing. But sometimes, we can start to worry and overanalyze our food choices. Taken to its extreme, that can lead to orthorexia, a type of eating disorder characterized by an obsession around making healthy food choices.
In this episode of The Psychology of Eating Podcast, you’ll meet Caitlin, 26, who would like to let go of worrying so much about what to eat. For a period of time, Caitlin was experiencing health challenges and wanted to understand which foods would make her feel better. But after watching numerous documentaries on the dark side of food production and manufacturing, she grew in her words “paranoid and freaked out” about some of the foods she had been eating. Eager to free herself from these worries and learn how to live a simple, healthy life, Caitlin turns to the Institute’s lead teacher and host of the podcast, Marc David, for help.
