Episode 44 - Orthorexia: When achieving that "perfect" diet becomes an obsession with Ivanna Ruger
Show Notes

Something I am seeing more and more often in clinic and around the community both local and online is signs of Orthorexia.  This is something I have personally struggled with in the past and something I feel needs to be brought to the forefront.  What is Orthorexia? In a nutshell, it is fixation and obsession with proper eating for better health.  Unlike Anorexia, it is more of an obsession about the quality of food you are putting into your body than the quantity. 

In this podcast episode I chat with Ivanna Ruger, a clinical nutritionist and personal trainer with a degree in complementary medicine who works in the field of Nutrigenomics. She is dedicated to empowering people to take control of their own health through biohacking and activation.  

Join Ivanna and I as we chat about our struggles with Orthorexia and how "clean" eating turned into a harmful obssession.   We share some of the signs of Orthorexia, how they impacted on our day to day lives and what we discovered to help us get through this unhealthy relationship with food. 

If you feel you may be showing signs of Orthorexia, it is important to get into contact with someone who can help guide you to a better relationship with food.  If this episode has resonated with you in some way, I would love to know more.   Take a screenshot and tag @seedsoflifenutrition and @ivanna_ruger on instagram or send me a DM.
