Never heard of Orthorexia Nervosa? It’s a disordered eating behavior that implies an obsession with a diet believed to be healthy or ‘clean’ that leads to malnutrition, psychological distress and social isolation. The disorder is not formally recognized as a psychiatric condition, but it’s becoming popular on (social) media. If you are curious and want to know more about it, we invite you to join the ‘Orthorexia Event’ on the 8th of November 16:00 in HG-11-A24. It will be an interactive event where we will present our research and you will have the opportunity to join an entertaining discussion. If you want to spend an afternoon chatting about an interesting topic, don’t miss out! To know more about the topic, check our publications:
