‡ Orthorexia Nervosa

[1] Do you feel superior to people who eat "improper food"? Yes, yes i do.
[2] Are you obsessed with making healthy, pure, and proper food? Yes
[3] Is eating the "right" kind of food a primary focus of your life? Indeed.

‡ Eating Disorder Not Otherwise Specified

Please indicate which eating disorder criteria you DO have (not just "food issues"):

[X] binging (more than ~800 calories per sitting) <-----If i drink (alcohol).
[X] purging (vomit, laxative, diuretic, enema) after binging <-----Vomiting only.
[X] purging (vomit, laxative, diuretic, enema) without binging <-----Less often than above.
[X] excessively exercising after eating <-----Rarely, but if i get paranoid.
[_] chewing and spitting
[X] obsession with "pure" food <-----Yep.
[X] terror of gaining weight <-----Mortally.
[X] self-worth based on looks or weight <-----YEs.
[X] I answered the question below

What do you feel is the difference between your attitudes/behaviors and those of someone who has normal insecurities about her body?

Being a guy, i guess a lot of what i feel is not similar to 'normal' male body insecurities qua masculinity and macho image (and my complete avoidence and abhorence of these things).
