First Impression Post; Motivation

I think that eating healthy can go to an extreme and in this case, I believe that it has gone too far. I think that eating healthy is a good thing and it really does help people lose weight and feel better about themselves, but when it gets to the point of basically being malnourished, I think it has reached a maximum.

I think that when people are so addicted to eating healthy that it makes them feel as though they can barely eat anything, then this has come too far because they are not getting the proper nutrition that they need to make the most of themselves.

Eating healthy can be a very easy way to make a person feel better about themselves and easily lose weight, but when it comes to the point of them actually being unhealthy and unable to have enough energy, then it has gone too far and it needs to stop because, in the long run, it can hurt their body detrimentally.

Orthorexia nervosa is a very unhealthy eating disorder that is tricking people into thinking that it is making them healthier, when in all reality it is hurting their bodies majorly because they are not getting the proper nutrition that they need to give their bodies enough energy to live a normal life. I think that there are proper ways to be a healthier person and to feel better about themselves, but I do not think that being obsessed with eating healthy is one of those things that will make a person feel better physically and also feel better about themselves.

  1. I find some of the points you make in your post quite interesting regarding healthy eating. I do agree with some of them, but I also disagree with others. Some of the points I agree with include the idea that being obsessed with healthy eating can lead to an unhealthy obsession of it as well as healthy eating has been seeming to go to an extreme extent in modern times.
    However, some of your other points in your post do not make the most sense to me. For example, you stated that when people become addicted to healthy eating it makes them feel as if they can barely eat anything at all. Why do you make this assumption? Healthy eating and lack of eating are two completely separate things, but you seemed to connect them over some kind of bridge that maybe you forgot to mention.
    Also, what do you consider obsession versus motivation? In your last paragraph you stated that “…I do not think that being obsessed with eating healthy is one of those things that will make a person feel better…” This is an interesting personal opinion but what is the difference between an obsession to eat healthy, and motivation to eat healthy? Much of the time, eating healthy is goal orientated which would make it motivated healthy eating, so to what extent does it become obsessive?
    Good post overall, but maybe a little too much opinionated items stated.
