Health Food Junkies: The Rise of Orthorexia Nervosa - The Health Food Eating Disorder

The first book to identify the eating disorder orthorexia nervosa-an obsession with eating healthfully-and offer expert advice on how to treat it. As Americans become better informed about health, more and more people have turned to diet as a way to lose weight and keep themselves in peak condition.

Finally, Dr. Bratman offers practical suggestions for intervention and treatment, giving readers the tool
