Take our quick Orthorexia test

Question 1

I spend a lot of my life thinking about, choosing and preparing healthy food and this interfered with other areas of my life, such as friends, family and education.

Question 2

If I eat food I regard as being unhealthy, I feel unclean, guilty and anxious.

Question 3

Being near foods that I think of being unhealthy or ‘bad’ makes me feel nervous

Question 4

I judge other people who eat foods that I think are unhealthy

Question 5

My personal sense of happiness, self-esteem and peace is dependent on the purity and rightness of what I eat.

Question 6

Sometimes I would like to relax what I think of as being ‘good foods’ for a special occasion, like a meal out, but I cannot (this question is only relevant if you don’t have a medical condition which means you can’t make an exception to your diet).

Question 7

I have eliminated more and more foods from my list of ‘good’ foods.

Question 8

I have a growing list of food rules – I believe these help me maintain or enhance my health.

Question 9

I have lost more weight that most people say is good for me

Question 10

I am showing signs of malnutrition, such as hair loss, feeling faint, loss of menstruation and skin problems.

Question 1 of 10
