Teresa Palmer Reveals She Suffered from Orthorexia, an Obsession with Healthy Eating https://t.co/vmB1ExU8eU— People (@people) July 30, 2020
Orthorexia = an excessive preoccupation with eating healthy food
- it started after her agent told her she did not look good in bikini pap pics
- for the next three years she had a disordered relationship to food
"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.
