  1. Orthorexia is a term used to describe an eating disorder in which people severely limit their diets in the name of healthy eating. On this episode of True Life, you'll meet three young people who are so obsessed with "righteous eating" that their mental and physical health is being compromised. Spring has been eating only raw food for two years and now purges every time she ingests anything that's been cooked. Andrew has severely restricted his diet because he fears that consuming even a morsel of impure food could cause cancer. Lauren eats only ten foods that she deems are "safe" while her social life is falling apart due to her increasingly rigid eating habits. Their good intentions are starting to backfire. Will they be able to overcome their obsessions and regain a more balanced relationship with the food they eat?
