In the first episode of our summer shorts series, Associate Registered Nutritionist Pixie Turner and I dissect a worrying Cosmo article from the July 2018 issue that feels more like a flashback to the clean eating articles of 2014. The article called 'Choose it or Lose it' promotes unnecessarily restrictive food swaps, demonising perfectly good foods and reads like a 'how to guide to orthorexia'.

In this episode we:

✨Discuss why it's unhelpful to focus on the minutiae of detail about nutrition ✨How food rules can lead to and overly restrictive diet and potentially even orthorexia ✨Blow the lid off some nutrition myths ✨How articles like this contribute to food fear
