Orthorexia – The Health Conscious Are Now “Extremists”
by Zen Gardner
When I saw this I almost couldn’t believe my eyes. Maybe I’m late to the party as I don’t follow mainstream news very much, but this is ridiculous, and so indicative of our times. While certainly many people are prone to fad diets, self starvation and getting things out of balance for the sake of appearance, this report is clearly an attempt to go after and label the health conscious as extremists that need societal care.
F’d up. Once again.
This rapidly metastasizing police state wants to control not just your food content, but is now policing your diet choices within their adulterated products. According to this insanity if you no longer like the good old foods or going to restaurants or partake of the traditional family dinner, you’re sick.
Eating Disorder Orthorexia On The Rise
BOSTON (CBS) – This is the time of year when many people are excited to get in shape and eat healthier. The problem is many people are going too far. A dangerous phenomenon called “Orthorexia” is becoming more prevalent.
Personal trainer Bron Volney at Boston Sports Center is just as concerned with his clients’ diet as he is with their workout.
“I monitor a lot of my clients’ weight, and if they are dropping really fast, and it seems they are going to extremes, you’ve got to question them and say, ‘Let’s make sure you are staying healthy,’” said Volney.
Staying healthy means following a balanced diet. A growing number of people, however, are eliminating entire food groups, seeing only negative qualities in things like dairy, eggs, meats, grains, and fats.
Over time, the only things left in their diet are fruits and vegetables.
Taken to an extreme, it’s now treated as an eating disorder called “Orthorexia”.
This is how Boston University Nutritionist Jenn Culbert defines Orthorexia: “What it essentially means is that someone is obsessed with eating only healthy food that they consider to be pure.”
The problem, according to Culbert, is our bodies need those so called bad foods.
Yup. You heard it right. Even Orwell is grabbing his brain. Oh, and dig the “warning signs”:
Culbert says the warning signs are not hard to spot. “When you are no longer able to enjoy any of the foods that you once did, and you are no longer able to participate in a family meal, or going out with a friend.” Source
Clever Little Bastards
Maybe they’ll start the GPS tracking of those avoiding fast food joints or not eating meat or who only buy organic like they have with those refusing vaccines? It’s a major effort to make the walls close in, or so they’d like.
The good news is they’re only going to herd in the flock that doesn’t get anything anyway. The bad news is the trend. This broad-brush denigration of any group they want is at the extreme and only needs to be heightened to one more level to bring on the type of hysteria they really want. Very much like the battle against free press and the tactic they’re currently using to justify spying and censorship if anyone appears “anti-government” or whatever, which immediately gets shunted into the “terrorist like behavior” imprint.
The State of Fascism has hardening of the arteries. A cloggy MoFo indeed.
Here’s the jerkwad physician who first stepped in it and got the ball rolling–oh how “goodie two shoes” types play into the political correctness agenda, no matter what field of information they inhabit:
Here’s from another article, where that absurd picture and caption came from”
Orthorexia: When Healthy Becomes Obsession
“It was not about food at all. It was all about control,” says Katy Boorman, a 22-year-old university student from Wellington, New Zealand.
It was during a relapse into anorexia when Katy’s desire to eat healthy crossed the line into something more serious. “I realized that I couldn’t starve, so I ate really healthy foods and exercised every single day,” says Katy. “It was different from my anorexia because my routine was so rigid. I ate three square meals a day at the same time every day and exercised twice a day.”
Katy’s behaviours are known now as “orthorexia” – a term coined by holistic physician, Steven Bratman, M.D., which is constructed from the word “ortho”, meaning straight, correct, and true. According to Bratman, Orthorexia nervosa refers to a “pathological fixation on eating proper food.”
“Many of the most unbalanced people I have ever met are those who have devoted themselves to healthy eating,” says Bratman in his article for Yoga Journal entitled “Health Food Junkie.” Bratman says, “In fact, I believe some of them have actually contracted a novel eating disorder.”

Mollify Your Conscience by Demonizing the Truth – Ask the Experts – the Griping, Whining, Conniving Zionists
This is an age old reflex of the willingly unconscious who refuse to even consider waking up: accuse the Truth bearers of sedition. “Crucify them! They dare to challenge our way of life! They’re arousing the masses with questions! How dare they challenge the status quo! They’re destroying our Homeland!”
You can apply this technique across the board. The bigger the lie the more it apparently works. The unsuspecting think no one would do such a thing.
The Zionists have perfected this. They’ve conditioned the world by cleverly instilling a bear trap like reflex against anything sounding remotely anti-Jewish, anti-Israel or anti-Zionist, using an array of steadily reinforced guilt, shame and fear tactics. An amazing feat that they’ve perfected over the last century.
Before that the invading non Sephardic nor Semetic Ashkenazim who migrated from Asia and who cloaked themselves in Talmudism for purposes of identity were hated wherever they went. These are those who comprise the driving leadership and military arm of the aggressive, parasitic and warring Zionists, hated around the world for their self serving banking and monetary manipulations for centuries. It’s only in recent decades they’ve managed to create a cover for themselves with the help of think tanks and carefully bought and placed insiders, to where the media and political machines are now completely owned and controlled by them.
This is how the mechanism works. The Zionists epitomize it by their very wicked existence. There is nothing holy about Zionism yet the religious right caters to them as if in a trance. Which is exactly what it is.
They prove once again that if you do it right you can openly justify liquidating your enemies or any perceived threat you want with populace bearing torches and pitchforks to help you. Sure helps subdue the thinking, critical and questioning serfs you might need to silence in a hurry.
We’re in a war. A war against Truth. To the extreme. The so-called bastion of free speech is no more, and the world looks on in horror as their once darling example is brought to its knees. The US hasn’t been a truly free country for a long, long time but the image has held up.
That is what needs to be brought low–the lingering idea of a free people, and the Obama administration is part of the final wrecking crew to be sure that happens, and in a hurry.
When America falls, and it will, the world will look on and wail for its lost darling that supplied their fake Hollywood dreams and synthetic products as the great whore of Babylon goes down, one very fitting description I subscribe to. You gotta admit she deserves it. It’s dumbed down people were compliant enough to fund and cheer on endless wars and carnage and stomp on any little adversary the PTBs pointed to as they mindlessly chanted like drunken crowds in the Roman Colosseum “USA USA..” They can’t be completely unaccountable.
Yet the real culprits are the Rulers. The designers. The manipulators.
Believe me, they won’t be there when the late, great U.S. goes down.
Sad day for an ignorant man. Great day for loving consciousness. The last wake up call beacons.
Know where you want to be, it won’t be long. And be conscious, alive and growing wherever you are.
Never fear. Nothing is as it appears. Get past the illusion. Peace, love and harmony await.
Love always, Zen
