These days we can get too obsessive..i remember well as a child how the grans,mums and aunts ( it was always the women! ) bought -or sent us to buy- what was in season and cooked and baked without fuss .
I can barely remember anyone adult or child being fat..as a child,i had no idea what ' fat' meant ( except on meat) and as for the word obese..if anyone had used it,i would have had no clue to what it referred.
The good thing about fasting i think is it definitely allows me to hear what my body craves, which nine times out of ten is the food that will provide protein,fats,vits and minerals, and the odd treat here and there too.
We're so lucky we have adequate food and clean drinking water..many people have neither..hard to believe In the 21 st century isnt it!
The good thing about IF regimes is that they emphasise eating normally on feed days/eating Windows ie at TDEE or until feeling full.
I see nothing wrong with eliminating or cutting back on certain food types if you have health concerns.
Orthorexia is somewhat misunderstood and is not a recognised mental illness in the DSM-5 - The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders but, in my opinion, is a illness somewhat distinct from other eating disorders and often the precursor to anorexia and to a lesser degree bulimia.

I think that's what most people mean by orthoexia. This article is about anorexia.
