In our health-crazed culture, our clients are constantly bombarded with messages to "eat healthy." Taken to the extreme when used as a response to emotional stress, or combined with the drive to excel, desperation for weight loss or a tendency toward perfectionism, this otherwise healthy behavior can cause illness, injury and worse.

Where is the line between healthy and appropriate versus detrimental and dangerous? And how do we lead our clients back from the danger zone? In this presentation Marci Anderson and Jessica Setnick will provide answers to both questions so that RDNs can identify and manage orthorexia in any area of practice.
