Can being 'too healthy' be unhealthy?
We're all taught that healthy eating is important not only for fitness, but for living a long life. For many of us, that means eating whole foods and trying to stay away from processed junk.
On any given day, I eat bowlfuls of organic vegetables topped with pasture-raised eggs, I make grass-fed beef meatballs (mixed with liver from pastured cows for good measure), down smoothies packed with superfoods, and sip homemade bone broth that has been simmered for no less than 48 hours. Most people consider me a very healthy person. But some believe my diet is not healthy at all. That it is actually a telltale sign of disordered eating. Not anorexia or bulimia, but orthorexia, which is a sign that being too healthy has become unhealthy.
