Can healthy eating become a dangerous obsession?

Orthorexia is an eating disorder that is hard to see. It is not about purging or cutting calories. But by excluding foods in pursuit of a “clean” or ideal diet, it can quickly turn into a compulsion with serious consequences for mental and physical health.

For the first time, dietician, nutritionist and eating disorder campaigner Renee McGregor reveals the true messages behind these dangerous diets. Packed with first-hand experiences and analysis, it provides the tools to guide sufferers back to a balanced, truly healthy way of eating.

Synopsis:

If you have been diagnosed with OCD, you already understand how your obsessive thoughts, compulsive behaviour, and need for rituals can interfere with everyday life. Maybe you have already undergone therapy or are in the midst of working with a therapist. It is important for you to know that life does not end with an OCD diagnosis. In fact, it is possible to not only live with the disorder, but also live joyfully. This practical and accessible guide will show you how.

In Everyday Mindfulness for OCD, you will discover how you can stay one step ahead of your OCD. You will learn about the world of mindfulness, and how living in the present moment non-judgmentally is so important when you have OCD. You will also explore the concept of self-compassion; what it is, what it is not how to use it, and why people with OCD benefit from it. Finally, you will discover daily games, tips, and tricks for outsmarting your OCD, meditations and mindfulness exercises, and much, much more.

Living with OCD is challenging; but it does not have to define you. If you are tired of focusing on how you are living with OCD is and are looking for fun ways to make the most of your unique self, this book will be a breath of fresh air.
