The term “clean eating” has become popular and is used to promote healthy foods which normally mean the food is gluten, sugar, or dairy free. Over the past year, the term “orthorexia” has gained prominence. Although not officially recognized as an eating disorder, the term refers to a fixation with healthy eating to the point where it becomes a compulsion; a compulsion that may affect health and overall quality of life. This presentation will go over the most common food allergies and how allergies/intolerances are being used as an umbrella to hide an eating disorder.
