It would be helpful [for] clinicians to have their radar out for orthorexia because it is easily misread as just healthy eating when it can be a major problem.” Moodley no longer considers herself orthorexic. Her work with clients made her realize that the correct diet is different for each individual and helped her overcome her orthorexia.

The challenge: Forgotten calories.

In a post on Science-Based Medicine , a blog run by medically trained professionals who evaluate medical treatments and products, Ontario pharmacist Scott Gavura wrote that he doesn’t recommend Reno’s influential book, or any other works on clean eating. Gavura agrees on some of Reno’s points, such as eating healthy fats, avoiding highly processed foods that are high in salt and calories, cutting out soda and exercising portion garcinia cambogia extract control. But he takes issue with other ideas, including the idea that calories don’t really matter, supplements are important and drinking two liters of water each day is necessary.
