Orthorexia Nervosa is a less common, newly researched food disorder characterized by an overwhelming fixation on eating healthy food. The obsession, in this case, is negative with damaging effects that contradict the concepts of healthy living and well-being. People with Orthorexia are obsessed with the quality of food and not the quantity.
