I figured out some time ago that many people’s obsessive eating habits were some kind of eating disorder. Usually vegetarian and obsessed with perceived ‘healthy” foods, I’ve known quite a few different folks who spent large chunks of their lives obsessed with food. Now, thanks to the wonders of the internet, and a healthy dash of Wikipedia, I know what condition these folks are suffering: orthorexia nervosa. Not currently an accepted diagnosis (not included in DSM), I have no doubt that it will be one day.
