Teresa Palmer Reveals She Suffered from Orthorexia


source

Orthorexia = an excessive preoccupation with eating healthy food


- it started after her agent told her she did not look good in bikini pap pics

"She said, 'Do you know what? You should start working out, because that's a part of your job. You need to make sure that you look really good.' And I was like, 'Oh, I thought I did look good,' "


- for the next three years she had a disordered relationship to food

"I was incredibly clean with my eating, so I didn't have anorexia or bulimia, but I had something different, which is when you become so obsessed with the amount of calories you're putting into your body, everything had to be of the highest quality. I wouldn't eat anything stripped of its nutritional value."

"it was exhausting, utterly exhausting, to log every calorie and to just be so overly conscious of the food I was putting into my body."


- she says meeting her now husband and being pregnant with their first child mended her relationship with food.

"I was finally liberated from these judgements that I had surrounding my body, which I realized had existed since I was ... a teenager"
