Is this clowny article paid by McDonalds or something[edit]

Delete this article. Do it. Dirty acting going in wikipedia by marketing prospectors. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 37.29.150.184 (talk) 02:22, 8 May 2016 (UTC)

The archives show people have been whinging about this article since it was made, and its high time someone actually pushed back. Guess what? If you think this article is dumb, you either a) didn't actually read/understand it or b) are someone who has this disorder! Look, the article makes it clear that there is a difference between real healthy eating and pathological dietary restricting, specifically when the restrictions are not based on spirtuallity or medical problems, are not scientifitically sound, and lead to malnutrition or other health problems. Diets you do for your health that make you sicker are not healthy! And sufferers are usually delusional into thinking they are healthy, just like anorexics think they are a healthy weight. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 156.40.252.2 (talk) 14:27, 11 May 2016 (UTC)
I wholeheartedly agree with you, 156.40.252.2, but just a reminder (both to you and the original poster) that talk pages should not be used as a discussion forum. IgnorantArmies (talk) 15:44, 11 May 2016 (UTC)


Defending this aritcle[edit]

Can I point out the term "orthorexia" has been used in the journal "Men's Health"?81.140.1.129 (talk) 20:43, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

It might be useful. Link?Legitimus (talk) 02:52, 7 March 2017 (UTC)

1996 0r 1997[edit]

This website gives the date when Bratman introduced this term as "1997" but I have read a website that says that Bratman coined this term in 1996. Would somebody who is in the know about these things put in the correct date, please?Carltonio (talk) 21:01, 6 March 2017 (UTC)

Bratman claims he coined in 1996 but it was not in a published work until 1997. His claim is plausible, but only attributed to a primary source (Bratman's personal website), so not really considered as reliable for our purposes. To remain objective, it is preferred to stick with secondary sources.Legitimus (talk) 02:52, 7 March 2017 (UTC)
