    Anorexia a Bad Comparison?

    I see the site has a section outlining how CR is different than anorexia. I would think it would be equally/more helpful to explain how it is not like orthexia. When I describe what I do with CR--low calories, high quality food, tracking micro-nutrients, etc--people who know EDs immediately cry "Orthexia!" Then it takes a lot of explaining to clear that up and sometimes we just agree to disagree because it is inconceivable to some people how I could track my nutrient levels every day and not have a "disorder." Wondering if anyone else has gotten asked about this? I know a number of people who suffer from anorexia and they would never be mistaken for CR people. They smoke, take laxatives and do peanut-butter "mono-diets"...
