Jason Wood: When "Healthy Eating" Becomes Unhealthy (Orthorexia)

Men's Intuition

In this episode, I had the pleasure of speaking with Jason Wood who turned his battle with orthorexia into a mission to break the stigma around men's mental health and eating disorders by launching his blog Orthorexia Bites in 2021 and publishing his memoir, "Starving for Survival" earlier this year. Through numerous podcast appearances, speaking engagements, and his writing, Jason is starting an important conversation that encourages everyone - especially men - on how important it is to speak up and get the help they deserve. From the National Eating Disorders Association (NEDA), "Although not formally recognized in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual, awareness about orthorexia is on the rise. The term ‘orthorexia’ was coined in 1998 and means an obsession with proper or ‘healthful’ eating. Although being aware of and concerned with the nutritional quality of the food you eat isn’t a problem in and of itself, people with orthorexia become so fixated on so-called ‘healthy eating’ that they actually damage their own well-being." There is a lot of stigma, shame, and lack of understanding when it comes to eating disorders in general but men (and those who don't fit the stereotype) often find it very difficult to recognize an eating disorder and subsequently find help because so many think of eating disorders as affecting primarily thin, young, white, more affluent women. The reality is that eating disorders and disordered eating affect people across the socioeconomic, gender, ethnic, and size spectrum.

Golladay Weekend (guest: Jason Wood)

FantasyPros - Fitz on Fantasy

After announcing a contest to win an entry into the 12th annual Scott Fish Bowl, host Pat Fitzmaurice (@Fitz_FF) welcomes Jason Wood (@fbgwood) of Footballguys.com. A longtime Eagles season ticketholder, Jason offers his thoughts on Philadelphia’s trade for A.J. Brown and what it means for the Eagles’ offense. How much does the addition of AJB boost the fantasy value of Jalen Hurts, how much does it diminish the value of DeVonta Smith, and what does it do for Brown himself? Jason and Pat also take a look at the Giants. Will new head coach Brian Daboll pump life into a moribund offense? Are Kenny Golladay or any of the other NYG receivers values at their modest cost? And what should we make of Saquon Barkley? Jason talks about his teenage sons’ relationship with pro sports, the quality of pizza in New Jersey, and the TV shows “Atlanta” and “Tokyo Vice.” He also names some of the players he’s targeting and avoiding in 2022 drafts, and he and Pat discuss the fantasy value of the Chiefs’ wide receivers.

Episode 68: The Dangers of “Clean Eating” with Jason Wood

Peace Meal

Episode description:  Jason Wood combined his therapeutic love of writing with his mission to break the stigma around men’s mental health and eating disorders by launching Orthorexia Bites in 2021. His first book, a memoir titled Starving for Survival, is out now. In this episode of Peace Meal, Jason discusses how weight-based bullying, the loss of his parents, and a cancer scare all contributed to the development of his eating disorder. He reflects on how the praise he received after weight loss in his early teens led him to believe that diet and exercise were something that made him “good” in the eyes of others. Then, he explains, a cancer scare led him to dieting and “clean eating” in an attempt to prevent cancer—the illness that took both of his parents. Jason experienced weight loss and was once again praised by friends and healthcare providers, suggesting that he was on the right track. In reality, however, an obsession with “clean eating” was consuming his life. Jason wants to share his story so that other men and boys know that they are not alone in their struggle with an eating disorder.  We cover: How bullying can affect body image from a young age How our culture praises weight loss and extreme dieting, which can reinforce disordered behaviors The power of a diagnosis How writing and sharing your story can help you find a community of people who understand what you’re going through How toxic masculinity can prevent men from getting the mental health help they need In Jason’s words: On sharing his story: “As a guy battling an eating disorder, I needed to get out there and I needed to share my story because there’s not enough men who talk about it. As someone who’s battling orthorexia, there’s not many people talking about it, I needed to get out there and change that as well.” On his relationship with food during his eating disorder: “There is nothing wrong with wanting to have a ‘healthy’ lifestyle… But then there’s individuals like myself when it goes too far… where suddenly, I’m no longer consuming food, food’s consuming me.” On how his definition of a “healthy lifestyle” has changed: “I was pursuing just physical health… I underestimated the power of mental health… social health… emotional health… Now I realize that there is a lot more to a ‘healthy lifestyle’ than just worrying about what you eat or how much you exercise.” You can purchase Jason’s book, Starving for Survival, through Amazon, his website, and more!

Alcohol Abuse and Eating Disorders- A Common Link?- Jason Wood- Page 30

The Sobriety Diaries

Jason reached his bottom mentally, physically, and emotionally in the summer of 2020. His unhealthy relationship with food and alcohol consumed his life. Jason’s husband voiced his concerns about the restrictive diet and opened his eyes to the past trauma that haunted him for over 15 years. Jason’s sobriety came through the treatment of his eating disorder. Open and honest conversations with his therapist helped him heal many of the past wounds that he tried to escape. It's also helped Jason forgive himself, overcome insecurities, and find self-compassion. Mindfulness practices such as journaling, meditation, hiking, and climbing have all been helpful in maintaining both his eating disorder recovery and sobriety.
