  1. This video contains a bunch of platitudes on diet, most of which are not useful because they are not hard rules to guide us one way or another.

  2. Thank you so much for this video. As a body compassion coach, I struggle to help people build a better relationship with food, one that isn't based on fear and anxiety. This is especially important for people who are body builders (myself included) who can easily conflate appearance with health, and are very meticulous with what they put in their body, not necessarily for health but for a certain aesthetic. What I'm hearing in this video is not a recommendation of a free for all approach to food, but to have a more critical yet relaxed examination of food.

  3. I don't mean to be rude but this talk is full of nothing but opinion. Just going to show what little "dietitian" or "nutritionist" means to scientific understanding.

  4. I have a family member who has developed an unhealthy obsession with supposedly healthy eating. She has demonized certain foods while believing that others will magically ward off illness. (I’m sorry but eating three lemons daily won’t single handedly prevent cancer) We, her family who love her, find it unpleasant to spend time with her because food and it’s category (“good” or “bad”) is the only she talks about anymore. She has an almost religious-like belief good vs. bad foods but she has created a system without internal consistency. She has gone from being slender to skeletal and I am very worried about her. I don’t know how to help.

  5. Uuuum, I actually like good high-quality food, making/prepping/getting said good high- quality food, and I like knowing exactly what's going into my body. I love whole, organic, colorful, hearty, natural, seasoned and rich foods full of seeds and nuts that don't weigh me down, cause tooth rot, or make me feel queasy and greasy. So to recap, this "orthorexia" basically is translation for, "one who doesn't stuff their faces with McDonald's, McDonalds, Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Pizza Hut every day?'

  6. Wow! Just wrong on so many levels. White sugar same as honey? Cows milk healthier than plant milk? Holly cow (face palm)

  7. Thank God more people are talking about this disorder, and have written a book on it! My sister is killing herself…

  8. What do I do
    Told prediabetic 4 hours glucose 2011
    I started cutting out white flour frozen fast food fried foods soda and candy

    Been dealing with health issues year before I cut that out
    Meds don’t help docs can’t find the answer

    So in 2016 a natural doc said remove dairy gluten eggs and meat nightshades
    Barely lasted without meat and eggs
    But did no gluten dairy nothing helped

    Then I read online cruciferous and histamine foods
    Now I’m scared I can’t function I hate these symptoms no answers and I feel I have to find right diet now

  9. The root cause of addictions is angst or anxiety. And where does the angst come from ? Drug addiction, alcohol addiction, food addiction are all the result of a neurotic conflict which gives rise to angst which in turn makes one run to drugs, alcohol and food. Think about the rationale and follow it through. She is one of the few people I have ever heard talking about the mental aspect of food addiction.

  10. Eating disorders are psychological and these young people want to be healthy not just loose weight as some are vegan and paleo (or both at different times hence they are confused). YOU'RE NOT HELPING.
    NOW THE FOOD INDUSTRY WILL USE ORTHOREXIA TO PROMOTE UNHEALTHY EATING. It's the fault so called nutritionists who have been taught by the food industry by lying to people for years putting things in food and animal products, actually telling people pasta, bread and grains are good. They tell peole fats are bad and the thing is young people see through the lies of food industry research but have very little to show them with ballance advice they'd rather go with peers who are in the same boat but advice from those educated are wrong.
    She is wrong when talking about sugars, sugars are in foods like bread fruit juice and certain veg. But the body produces 300g of carbs naturally so it doesn't go into trying to survive the body it's just craving carbs again. And intermittent fasting is about repairing cells that's why we rest at night becsuse we fast hence the term breakfast, so all these individuals do extend the time to lunchtime giving the body time to burn stored body fat which gives more enery and clarity as the body is using fat gor energy and not glycogen from sugars. Its not the lack of sugars or carbs why these individuals get adrenal fatigue or loose their periods it's a lack of nutrition from vitamins from cruciferous vegetables.

  11. This comment section makes me sad, a big part of it is basically a demonstration of the sort of mentality that puts you at risk. People think she's talking about what foods are healthy or not, but she's actually talking about what type of mindset is healthy.

    She's not claiming that you need cow's milk, but that cutting it out might have many effects that you don't anticipate and that are ignored a lot when it's promoted. I use plant based milk myself, and I think she's not being entirely fair since plant based milk is often fortified with things like calcium and B12. However, that's not really the point she's trying to make either. It's about how the mentality where you cut foods out like this can cause more harm than good. You're thinking in absolutes, and that's just never good.

    It can make you obsess over what you eat, and cause anxiety if you feel like you ate something "wrong". It can make you feel extremely bad about yourself because you equate healthy or "clean" eating with being a morally righteous person. It can consume so much time and energy that it impairs your work, school or social life, or you might stop doing things that you usually enjoy. You might start to cut out anything that is even suspected of being a bit unhealthy. And if you keep spiraling, you're going to start restricting your intake to the point where it's physically dangerous.

    So please, please be mindful about how you think and talk about food.
