Healthy living and the concept of “healthy eating” appears to be our new cultural fixation. We are constantly flooded with articles and advertisements consisting of elaborate juices, recipes, and lists of super foods, that all claim to be able to instill us with optimal health. So what on earth does it mean to “eat healthy?” There are many different camps that have opposing viewpoints as to what constitutes “healthy eating.” Some people have jumped on the “I eat only organic” bandwagon, whereas others are fixated on the concept of “clean eating,” and still others promote the “keto diet" with an almost religious zeal.
The reality is that this concept of 'healthy eating,' and putting food into 'black and white' categories can actually be harmful.
It can lead to a disordered relationship with food-and for some to an eating disorder (in combination with a variety of other factors i.e. genetics, temperament, trauma, etc).
At The Eating Disorder Center, we love debunking this idea of 'healthy eating' (and helping people to redefine it) as well as the idea of 'good' and 'bad' foods.
We believe that ALL foods can fit into a healthy diet (barring genuine medical restrictions).
Below are two free resources to help you to get started on the path to finding freedom from an eating disorder.
