The Orthorexia affects people who consider themselves superior to those that do not follow their way of life, present a false self and an absolute conviction that their choice is better than everyone else.
These people are more concerned about the quality of the food they eat than the pleasure or the need to eat, spend many hours a day to organize your eating plan and are able to travel long distances to buy special or organic foods.
