When Does Healthy Exercise Become a n Unhealthy Problem?
Do you feel guilt, shame, or anxiety when you don’t exercise? Do you worry excessively about your weight or body size? Do you exercise despite injury or sickness? Do you spend a lot of time researching diets, meal plans and/or supplements to support your workout regime or help you achieve the “perfect body”? Do you pay excessive attention to diet, with focus on healthy foods and protein?
Did you know that there are several types of eating and exercise disorders that are hardly ever discussed, even though many people suffer from them? Some examples include: Orthorexia Nervosa, an obsession with eating foods that one considers healthy; Muscle Dysmorphia, a psychological disorder marked by a negative body image and an obsessive desire to have a muscular physique; and Compulsive Exercise, the addictive urge to unhealthily compensate for calories eaten.
These psychological disorders pose devastating effects to sufferer’s physical health, mental wellbeing, personal relationships, career goals, and family and social life. To learn more about these issues and how to get help for yourself or someone you care about, join Megan Fearnley, MSc, at a free seminar on October 18th at 4-5pm at Naturopathic Living.
