am i an orthorexic?

by prash on 29 Mar 2005

i always knew i loved eating healthful foods, but little did i know the extent of my obsession until my wife sent me this! am i really orthorexic? even if i am not, there are definite signs that i am getting there!
and the scary thing is that the article mentions some of the exact symptoms i am displaying like taking only the healthy portions of unhealthy foods, reading the labels almost maniacally and also serially stopping certian classes of foods (already on the do not eat list: pasta, rice, nuts, cream cheese).
but the reason i am not really all there yet, is that i still love pizza (and milk shakes and icecream and cakes). just be there when i am at a pizza hut or sweet tomatoes buffet and you can be assured of a sight that is truly special (no, that’s not me, but you get the idea!).
and hey, atleast i am not anorexic!

For me, I don’t like a lot of foods at all. I mainly like smoothies, and macoroni and cheese because I get bored of all the other foods I attempt to eat. I have to force myself to eat sometimes, only foods lying around are bad. I’ve always thought I was fat to be honest. 140 lbs for 5 foot 9 inches. Right now I can’t even excercise because that raises my already high metabolism and I practically starve. I find that I can’t eat much meat without grossing out. I have tried different foods but I do find any joy in it. I need help because my favorite sport is coming up and I really want to well.
