Skip to comments.“Munch”-Hausen By Proxy–It’s a Real Thing

Here is Lady M, encouraging little children to develop and submit their very own healthy lunch recipe in order to win an invite to her Childrens State Dinner.
Apparently she is unaware of a new pandemic sweeping the country that could be as serious as the obesity epidemic: orthorexia-nervosa. Im deathly serious, its a real thing:
A new type of eating disorder is emerging where people are becoming obsessed with eating to improve their health.
Victims of this 'health food eating disorder' may exhibit the following symptoms:
- may be 'plunged into gloom' by eating a piece of bread
- may become anxious about when their next superfood hit of kale, chia or quinoa hit is coming
Dinner will be ready in 4 hours!
- Exaggerated focus on food can be seen in raw, clean and paleo dieters
Although not currently listed in the American Psychiatric Association's Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DSM-5) orthorexia nervosa is clearly an eating disorder. What else would you call a person obsessed with righteous eating that involves dietary fads that promise superior health by restricting whole food groups without a medical reason or even a valid scientific explanation.
Im pretty sure Lady M isnt suffering from this disease herself, although she may be promoting it. And she may have a related disorder - orthorexia nervosa by proxy (related to Münchausen syndrome by proxy) in which the sufferer is obsessed with imposing righteous eating habits on everyone else.
Yes you will eat your vegetables!
Worse, I think our President-in-Waiting may be developing a full blown case of this disease. Did you see what she ordered when she and Huma slipped into the Chipotle incognito by avoiding interaction with the staff and ignoring all of the real people there?
Either that or shes just trying to establish her Hispanic bona fides before Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz try to claim Latino roots.
Butt I have good news Titos Vodka is Made in America AND Gluten Free!
Now both Lady M and Hills are free to go about their daily pathologies completely guilt free and without a whiff of hypocrisy. Bottoms Up!

Isn’t ALL distilled alcohol gluten-free?
Dam ! I read your response too quickly
and thought you said "foot fetishes" ,
and thought :' How would he know ?'
Perhaps carrots alternating in the toes ?
Socks that smell like blue cheeese ?
Mashed potatoes ala 'barefoot' like Italian grape wine
Then I re-read your response ..., and all is well !
There are debates on that. When did gluten-free become so hip? Seems like everybody’s doing it. Never heard of it 30 years ago.
There are a LOT of foods that are gluten-free by definition, and yet they’ll still be labeled as such just to cash in on the latest bout of American Hypochondria.
