544. When Being Too Healthy Hurts You

By Commune

Our ever-increasing interest in health and healthy eating habits has a dark side: Orthorexia, which is an unhealthy obsession with healthy eating. In today’s conversation, Jeff and fellow Commune Co-Founder, Jake Laub, discuss the predicament of knowing too much about how to be healthy — and how to walk a middle path versus going to an extreme.

In this episode we cover:
00:03:00: What is the difference between Orthorexia and Anorexia?
00:06:00: How does Orthorexia present in people?
00:09:00: The impact of stress around food
00:19:00: How do you distinguish a healthy relationship to wellness from an unhealthy obsession? 00:23:00: Possible comorbidities and roots of Orthorexia
00:34:00: How to look at health on a spectrum
00:44:00: What it means to be holistically well
