Eating healthy?

Those who deny themselves entire food groups or worry too much about the “purity” of their meals are risking their mental and physical well-being. Experts have reported a rise in such extreme behavior, which is known as orthorexia nervosa. Sufferers of orthorexia nervosa tend to be over 30, middle class and well-educated.

Orthorexia patients are different than anorexia patients, who restrict the quantity of food they eat. Sufferers of orthorexia, named after the Greek word for “right or true,” fixate on quality. Sufferers often eliminate sugar, salt, caffeine, alcohol, wheat, gluten, yeast, soya, corn and dairy foods from their diet. Foods tainted by pesticides or that contain additives such as MSG may also be ditched. Such habits may seem quirky, but they can have a serious effect on health.

Cutting out entire food groups can leave sufferers malnourished, while rigid rules can make eating out impossible, putting a huge strain on friendships and relationships.

Jennifer Hudson is pregnant. Over a month ago the rumors started but her rep’s denied it. But it looks like the Chicago Tribune is reporting she had a baby shower this weekend. Felicia Fields, a longtime friend of Hudson’s tells the paper, “It was a baby shower, a quiet gathering of friends and mostly family. They’re really trying to keep it kind of quiet.”

After two days of filming “I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!” in Costa Rica, Heidi and Spencer have quit the show TWICE. According to a production source, Speidi took their mics off and exited the jungle, yet relectantly returned for night. On the second day of shooting, they walked out again but have since yet again been persuaded to competing for their respective charities.

Drew Barrymore has finally given midget Justin Long the boot. Sources spotted Barrymore and Entourage star Adrian Grenier having an “intimate dinner” at Cliff’s Edge restaurant in the Silver Lake neighborhood of El Lay on Friday night!!

LAMEbert treated himself to a manicure and pedicure in West Hollywood on Friday afternoon and went with a not-so-glam shade of black for his toes!

Lindsay Lohan has been given strict orders on the set of her new movie. For starters, she has to start eating! Yep, Lindsay’s got to fatten up!  The producers of the film are taking every precaution with the erratic starlet, drafting a contract that insists she gains some weight to make her look more normal and healthy.

 But that’s not all!

The producers (and everyone else for that matter) are aware of Lindsay’s behavior on film sets before. Therefore, she had to also agree to attend weekly weigh-ins, adhere to a nightly curfew during filming, and undergo random drug and alcohol testing before they considered signing her for the part.
