Re: Questions about odd eating disorder

This is apparently an eating disorder, and I am sure it is the following, but ina similar method. There is something called orthorexia. Where someone takes out slowly all the things that aren't nutritional, ie butter, and only eats "healthy." And his isn't totally that way, because someone with orthorexia will just eat fruit, vegetables etc and this is a very damaging type of eating disorder, but his methods sound similar too it. I would suggest he have a consult with a nutritionist and psychiatrist, as well as blood work for vitamin deficiences. And bringing his own food places is eating disordered as well. ED's affect males, females of all ages, so it's good of you to bring this up and hopefully he gets help. Good luck!
