Previously we dealt with an alteration of the feeding called sadorexia , which consisted of a combination of behavior anorexic, bulimic and orthorectic with a body maltreatment and the use of masochistic weight loss methods.
However, this time we are going to echo about the orthorexia , a food alteration that has tended to grow until reaching a greater percentage of society in recent years.

They usually do without industrial products and supposedly negative or harmful to health, such as pastries, soft drinks, pre-cooked or canned, and only eat organic food or produced biologically.
You could say that your diet is based on a monodiet extremely dangerous, since they do not tend to consume meats and fats either.

The solution, therefore, is to eat everything but in a balanced way, healthy and healthy . And, in most cases, healthy living does not mean eating very few foods and dispensing with some usual.
