Watch out, here comes a new term coined by the press: "Orthorexia":https://www.yahoo.com/health/orthorexia-the-accidental-eating-disorder-175516694.html
Some things to be aware of in this article:
1) Whole30, Keto, Paleo, Atkins, any of the low-carb plans don't want you to shrink your food choices down to a dozen or less. That's not the point of these lifestyles - you all well know, it's figuring out what makes you sick and getting it out of your food chain. I haven't seen any signs of "orthorexia" in this thread at all.
2) "Orthorexia" is not in the DSM. That means right now it's really only a made-up term by the media, open to definition by whoever is writing the article. That's a very important point, since not being in the DSM means it's NOT been researched and defined by scientists doing pure science.
3) Ancel Keys, quoted in the article for the "Minnesota Starvation Experiment" is widely disputed by those in the Keto/Paleo lifestyles because it was his "Seven Countries Study" that laid the foundation for the Food Pyramid pushed by the US Government with the help of lobbyists from the food industry - places like General Mills, Archer-Daniels-Midland, Post, etc.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ancel_Keys
Five servings of bread a day, my ass.
"After observing in southern Italy the highest concentration of centenarians in the world, Keys hypothesized that a Mediterranean-style diet low in animal fat protected against heart disease and that a diet high in animal fats led to heart disease. The results of what later became known as the Seven Countries Study appeared to show that serum cholesterol was strongly related to coronary heart disease mortality both at the population and at the individual level. As a result, in 1956 representatives of the American Heart Association appeared on television to inform people that a diet which included large amounts of butter, lard, eggs, and beef would lead to coronary heart disease. This resulted in the American government recommending that people adopt a low-fat diet in order to prevent heart disease."
I am totally betting my life AGAINST this statement. So far, my own personal medical data is supporting my bet. Now: I don't "live on meat and butter". I eat a ton of eggs, beef, butter, pork, chicken and seafood. I also eat a ton of salads, celery, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, squash (butternut - delish!), artichokes, berries (when i can get them) and the (very) occasional apple, orange or canteloupe. I strive for about 50% fats, 40% proteins and 10% carbs. I don't always make those numbers but that's generally what I'm shooting for.
So, be careful. You might find someone reading this pablum and thinking the term applies to you, when you're really only fighting the FIVE FUCKING OREO DISPLAYS in the high traffic areas at Walmart, the cheap-ass hard cookies in the break room at work and the snack machine loaded with crap.
