"Ljudi koriste određene dijete kao način da sakriju poremećaj prehrane ili veliki osjećaj nezadovoljstva i nelagode u vlastitom tijelu", kaže Lawson.

Čista prehrana može biti trendovska dijeta, ali ne obožavaju je svi. TV ličnost i slavna kuharica Nigella Lawson progovorila je o svom preziranju čisto jelo, za koju kaže da se često koristi kao štaka za prikrivanje poremećaja prehrane.

Čista prehrana trend je koji naglašava promjenu načina života jednako kao i promjenu u prehrani: čista lica koja kupuju kupuju na poljoprivrednim tržnicama, napune frižider i ormare organskim voćem i povrćem i sigurno će se kloniti većine prerađene hrane.

"Postoji način na koji se hrana koristi za samo čestitati-vi ste bolja osoba jer tako jedete-ili za samoprogone, jer si nećete dopustiti da jedete ono što želite" rekla je u seriji zvučnika JW3, niz predavanja istaknutih govornika održanih u Londonu. “Općenito mislim da nije hrana ako se misli da je mršavljenje uvijek bolje. Rezultat toga je da se na vas nekako gleda kao na bolju osobu. ”

Ovo nije prvi put the Jednostavno Nigella TV voditeljka progovorila je o svom preziranju novog trenda čiste ishrane. Tokom intervjua za BBC TV emisiju, Ženski sat, izrazila je zgražanje nad ovim trendom.

Lawson se lično uhvatila u koštac sa opsesijom nezdravom hranom, a nedavno je objavila o borbi svoje majke sa poremećajem u ishrani.

"Strašno je čekati dok ne dobijete neizlječivu bolest da biste uživali u jelu", rekla je.

"Quotclean-eat" blogeri koji su sve započeli

Imao sam 23 godine kada sam postao opsednut jedenjem „zdrave“ hrane i brojenjem kalorija, što je na kraju dovelo do dijagnoze anoreksije.

Nikada se prije nisam brinuo za svoje tijelo, ali kad sam dobio prvi posao na modnom magazinu, postao sam sve svjesniji koliko su sve žene oko mene vitke - i koliko su malo jele.

Brbljanje u kancelariji bilo je usredsređeno na hranu, a moji vršnjaci su neprestano raspravljali o svojoj težini, dijetama i "čistih jelima".

Uvijek će isprobavati recepte i donositi impresivne ručkove od blogerice o zdravlju Melisse Hemsley ili Madeleine Shaw, prekrivene keljom, kvinojom i lanenim sjemenkama.

Kao mlad i impresivan novinar, potražio sam te žene - pa sam otišao kući i napravio potpuno istu stvar za sljedeći dan. Htjela sam biti dio "kluba koji jede čistu hranu", baš kao i oni.

Ubrzo sam tražio recepte i lično pratio blogere na Instagramu. Što sam više čitao o "zdravim" navikama u ishrani, postajao sam sve opsjednutiji.

Počeo sam donositi ono što mi je Instagram rekao da su "zdraviji izbori", zamjenjujući mlijeko mlijekom za bademovo mlijeko i pokušavajući jesti manje škrobnih ugljikohidrata.

Bio sam toliko opsjednut ovim zdravstvenim blogerima da sam učinio upravo ono što su svi rekli - i odjednom je to bilo kao domino efekt.

Prestao sam doručkovati jer je post bio dobar za metabolizam.

Tada sam prestao jesti kruh jer je gluten bio đavolje mrijest.

Mjesec dana kasnije odlučio sam postati vegan i odrekao sam se svih mliječnih proizvoda - mlijeka, maslaca, sira, jogurta i jaja.

Bio sam opsjednut pričanjem o tome i propovijedao bih svima koji bi slušali o količini dodanog šećera u standardnim ručkovima.

Svima ostalima mogao sam se pretvarati da su mi dijeta iz zdravstvenih razloga - što je za početak bilo tačno.

Ali ubrzo mi je postalo važnije da jedem što je moguće manje kalorija i da gubim težinu - a ove dijete su postale odlično prikrivanje pa ljudi nisu ni vidjeli kako vidim koliko malo jedem.

Recepte za kolače od slatkog krumpira pronašao sam na Instagram stranici Madeline Shaw & aposs, a zatim ih napravio svojim prijateljima da im pokušaju dokazati da jedem loše stvari poput kolačića - ali zaista su imali oko tri kalorije u sebi.

Savršeno prikrivanje anoreksije

Budući da sam bio vegan, bilo je lako odbiti kolač na porodičnoj zabavi ili odbiti jesti mamu i aposs peći sirastu tjesteninu, a pretvarati se da nisam tolerantna na gluten svojim prijateljima značilo je da nisam & apostola imala pritisak jesti picu s njima u društvenim prilikama.

Preživjela sam na dijeti od kelja i pirinča od karfiola, bila sam pothranjena i težina mi je počela opadati.

U roku od samo šest mjeseci, prešao sam sa zdrave veličine 8-10 na malu veličinu četiri-a imao sam istu težinu kao i prosječni 11-godišnjak. Nisam bio ni apostolski nabavljao potrebne vitamine ili minerale.

Mama me je odvela ljekarima i primljena sam u bolnicu i dijagnosticirana mi je anoreksija.

Liječili su me liječnici koji su mi dopunili gorivo i vidjela sam psihijatre i nutricionistu koji su mi pomogli da shvatim svoj poremećaj prehrane.

Nakon šest sedmica otpušten sam i krenuo kući kako bih pokušao obnoviti zdrav odnos s hranom.

Blogeri koji jedu čistu hranu moraju preuzeti odgovornost

Sada, dvije godine kasnije, sretan sam i zdrav i jedem što dovraga želim - ali zauvijek ću biti bijesan na nekvalifikovane zvijezde Instagrama koje su mi govorile šta da jedem - uprkos tome što nisam bio kvalifikovan.

Računi o čistom jelu koje sam pratio nisu imali nikakvog ovlaštenja da govore meni i drugim mladim ženama šta da jedemo-ipak zato što su imali hrpu sljedbenika i objavili lijepe slike obroka zdravog izgleda, vjerovao sam da su u pravu.

Ne mogu dovoljno naglasiti koliko je ovo pogrešno.

Slijediti dijetu čiste prehrane ne znači otpad i ne dobivate sve potrebne hranjive tvari.

Doslovce ćemo završiti s generacijom žena s osteoporozom jer nisu primile dovoljno kalcija za održavanje kostiju dok su na dijeti koja ih lišava dnevnih i esencijalnih aminokiselina izrezivanjem vitalnih grupa hrane.

Čini me tako nervoznim.

Govorit ću to sve dok ne postanem plava u licu - vjerujem da blogerice čiste prehrane poput Madeleine Shaw i Natasha Corrett, koje obje kažu da vjeruju u umjerenost i ravnotežu - trebaju ustati i preuzeti odgovornost prije nego što se prekasno povuku.

Oni uništavaju živote ljudi i aposima - i ove račune treba zabraniti i moramo prestati plašiti ljude da se previše plaše da jedu normalnu hranu.

Ljudi moraju prestati odlaziti na Instagram radi savjeta i umjesto toga se obratiti nutricionistima.

No, vladine kampanje koje nam govore da moramo jesti 10 porcija voća i povrća dnevno jednako su loše - trebamo više ostvariv cilj.

Preopterećenje i briga oko hrane su prisutni - jedenje hljeba, mesa i mliječnih proizvoda nikome nije dalo rak.

Ali ubrzo mi je postalo važnije da jedem što je moguće manje kalorija i da gubim težinu - a ove dijete su postale odlično prikrivanje pa ljudi nisu ni vidjeli kako vidim koliko malo jedem.

Recepte za kolače od slatkog krumpira pronašao sam na Instagram stranici Madeline Shaw & aposs, a zatim ih napravio svojim prijateljima da im pokušaju dokazati da jedem loše stvari poput kolačića - ali zaista su imali oko tri kalorije u sebi.

Savršeno prikrivanje anoreksije

Budući da sam vegan, bilo je lako odbiti kolač na porodičnoj zabavi ili odbiti jesti mamu i aposs peći sirastu tjesteninu, a pretvarati se da ne toleriram gluten prema svojim prijateljima značilo je da nisam & apostoli imala pritisak jesti s njima pizzu u društvenim prilikama.

Preživljavala sam na dijeti od kelja i pirinča od karfiola, bila sam pothranjena i težina mi je počela opadati.

U roku od samo šest mjeseci, prešao sam sa zdrave veličine 8-10 na malu veličinu četiri-i bio sam iste težine kao i prosječni 11-godišnjak. Nisam bio ni apostolski nabavljao potrebne vitamine ili minerale.

Mama me je odvela ljekarima i primljena sam u bolnicu i dijagnosticirana mi je anoreksija.

Liječili su me liječnici koji su mi dopunili gorivo i vidjela sam psihijatre i nutricionistu koji su mi pomogli da shvatim svoj poremećaj prehrane.

Nakon šest sedmica otpušten sam i krenuo sam kući kako bih pokušao obnoviti zdrav odnos s hranom.

Blogeri koji jedu čistu hranu moraju preuzeti odgovornost

Sada, dvije godine kasnije, sretan sam i zdrav i jedem što dovraga želim - ali zauvijek ću biti bijesan na nekvalifikovane zvijezde Instagrama koje su mi govorile šta da jedem - uprkos tome što nisam bio kvalifikovan.

Računi čiste ishrane koje sam pratio nisu imali nikakvog ovlašćenja da govore meni i drugim mladim ženama šta da jedemo-pa ipak, pošto su imali hrpu sledbenika i objavili lepe slike obroka zdravog izgleda, verovao sam da su u pravu.

Ne mogu dovoljno naglasiti koliko je ovo pogrešno.

Slijediti dijetu čiste prehrane ne znači odbacivanje svih potrebnih hranjivih tvari.

Doslovce ćemo završiti s generacijom žena s osteoporozom jer nisu primile dovoljno kalcija za održavanje kostiju dok su na dijeti koja ih lišava dnevnih i esencijalnih aminokiselina izrezivanjem vitalnih grupa hrane.

Čini me tako nervoznim.

Govorit ću to sve dok ne postanem plava u licu - vjerujem da blogerice čiste prehrane poput Madeleine Shaw i Natasha Corrett, koje obje kažu da vjeruju u umjerenost i ravnotežu - trebaju ustati i preuzeti odgovornost prije nego što se prekasno povuku.

Oni uništavaju živote ljudi i aposima - i ove račune treba zabraniti i moramo prestati plašiti ljude da se previše plaše da jedu normalnu hranu.

Ljudi moraju prestati odlaziti na Instagram radi savjeta i umjesto toga se obratiti nutricionistima.

No, vladine kampanje koje nam govore da moramo jesti 10 porcija voća i povrća dnevno jednako su loše - trebamo više ostvariv cilj.

Preopterećenje i briga oko hrane su prisutni - jedenje hljeba, mesa i mliječnih proizvoda nikome nije dalo rak.

'Čista prehrana mi je dala anoreksiju'

Eve je koristila svoju vegansku prehranu bez glutena kao način da prikrije svoj zastrašujući poremećaj prehrane.

Eve je koristila svoju vegansku prehranu bez glutena kao način da prikrije svoj zastrašujući poremećaj prehrane.

Nigella Lawson & aposs desno - trendi dijete u modi su zataškavanje poremećaja prehrane.

Znam jer sam se posljednje dvije godine oporavljao od poremećaja prehrane koji me skoro ubio - a sve je počelo kad sam počeo s "čistom hranom".

TV kuhar Nigella rekao je grupi studenata na predavanju u Torontu ovog vikenda da "živimo u doba hira" i priznao da je zgrožen idejom o čistoj prehrani - jer to sugerira da je druga hrana "prljava".

I drago mi je što vidim da neko konačno govori razumno o ovome.

Kao i Nigella, slažem se da ljudi koriste čistu prehranu - niz dijeta koje se fokusiraju na izbacivanje određenih masti, šećera i životinjskih proizvoda - kao način da sakriju svoje poremećaje u prehrani, jer to i potvrđuje upravo ono što mi se dogodilo.

"Quotclean-eat" blogeri koji su sve započeli

Imao sam 23 godine kada sam postao opsednut jedenjem „zdrave“ hrane i brojenjem kalorija, što je na kraju dovelo do dijagnoze anoreksije.

Nikada se prije nisam brinuo za svoje tijelo, ali kad sam dobio prvi posao na modnom magazinu, postao sam sve svjesniji koliko su sve žene oko mene vitke - i koliko su malo jele.

Brbljanje u kancelariji bilo je usredsređeno na hranu, a moji vršnjaci su neprestano raspravljali o svojoj težini, dijetama i "čistih jelima".

Uvijek će isprobavati recepte i donositi impresivne ručkove od blogerice o zdravlju Melisse Hemsley ili Madeleine Shaw, prekrivene keljom, kvinojom i lanenim sjemenkama.

Kao mlad i impresivan novinar, potražio sam te žene - pa sam otišao kući i napravio potpuno istu stvar za sljedeći dan. Htjela sam biti dio "kluba koji jede čistu hranu", baš poput njih.

Ubrzo sam tražio recepte i lično pratio blogere na Instagramu. Što sam više čitao o "zdravim" navikama u ishrani, postajao sam sve više opsjednut.

Počeo sam stvarati ono što mi je Instagram rekao da su "zdraviji izbori", zamjenjujući mlijeko mlijekom za bademovo mlijeko i pokušavajući jesti manje škrobnih ugljikohidrata.

Bio sam toliko opsjednut ovim zdravstvenim blogerima da sam učinio upravo ono što su svi rekli - i odjednom je to bilo kao domino efekt.

Prestao sam doručkovati jer je post bio dobar za metabolizam.

Tada sam prestao jesti kruh jer je gluten bio đavolje mrijest.

Mjesec dana kasnije odlučio sam postati vegan i odrekao sam se svih mliječnih proizvoda - mlijeka, maslaca, sira, jogurta i jaja.

Bio sam opsjednut pričanjem o tome i propovijedao bih svima koji bi slušali o količini dodanog šećera u standardnim ručkovima.

Svima ostalima mogao sam se pretvarati da su moje hir dijete iz zdravstvenih razloga - što je za početak bilo tačno.

Ali ubrzo mi je postalo važnije da jedem što je moguće manje kalorija i da gubim težinu - a ove dijete su postale odlično prikrivanje pa ljudi nisu ni vidjeli kako vidim koliko malo jedem.

Preživjela sam na dijeti od kelja i pirinča od karfiola, bila sam pothranjena i težina mi je počela opadati.

Within just six months, I&aposd gone from a healthy size 8-10 to a tiny size four - and I was the same weight as the average 11-year-old. I wasn&apost getting any of the vitamins or minerals that I needed.

My mum took me to the doctors and I was admitted to hospital and diagnosed with anorexia.

I was treated by doctors who re-fuelled my body and I saw psychiatrists and nutritionist who helped me understand my eating disorder.

After six weeks I was discharged and headed home to try and rebuild a healthy relationship with food.

Clean-eating bloggers need to take responsibility

Now, two years on I am happy and healthy and eat what the hell I want - but I will be forever furious with the unqualified Instagram stars who told me what to eat - despite being unqualified.

The clean-eating accounts I followed had zero authority to be telling me and other young women what to eat - yet because they had loads of followers and posted pretty pictures of healthy-looking meals, I believed they were right.

I cannot stress enough how wrong this is.

Following a clean-eating diet doesn&apost mean you get all the nutrients you need.

We are literally going to end up with a generation of women with osteoporosis because they didn&apost get enough calcium to keep their bones strong while following a diet which deprives them of diary and essential amino acids by cutting out vital food groups.

It just makes me so livid.

I will say it until I&aposm blue in the face - I believe clean-eating bloggers like like Madeleine Shaw and Natasha Corrett, who both say they believe in moderation and balance - need to stand up and take responsibility before it&aposs too late.

They are ruining people&aposs lives - and these accounts need to be banned and we need to stop scaremongering people into being too scared to eat normal food.

People need to stop going to Instagram for advice and look to nutritionists instead.

But government campaigns telling us we need to eat 10 portions of fruit and veg a day are just as bad - we need more manageable goal.

There&aposs too much anxiety and worry around food - eating bread, meat and dairy never gave anyone cancer.

'Clean Eating Gave Me Anorexia'

Eve used her vegan and gluten-free diet as a way to mask her frightening eating disorder.

Nigella Lawson&aposs right - trendy fad diets are a cover-up for eating disorders.

I know because I&aposve spent the last two years recovering from an eating disorder that nearly killed me - and it all began when I started "clean-eating."

TV chef Nigella told a group of students at a lecture in Toronto this weekend that “we live in an age of fads" and admitted being disgusted by the idea of clean eating - as it suggests other foods are "dirty."

And I am SO glad to see someone finally speaking sense about this.

Like Nigella, I agree that people are using clean eating - a range of diets which focus on cutting out certain fats, sugars and animal products - as a way to hide their eating disorders, because it&aposs exactly what happened to me.

The "clean-eating" bloggers that started it all

I was 23 when I became obsessed with eating "healthy" foods and calorie counting, which eventually led to a diagnosis of anorexia.

I&aposd never been worried about my body before, but when I got my first job at a fashion mag I became increasingly aware of how slim all the women around me were - and how little they ate.

Chatter in the office was all centred around food, with my peers constantly discussing their weight, diets and "clean eating" recipes.

They&aposd always be trying out recipes and bringing in impressive lunches from health blogger Melissa Hemsley or Madeleine Shaw, covered in kale, quinoa and linseed.

As a young and impressionable journalist, I looked up these women - so I&aposd go home and make the exact same thing for the next day. I wanted to be part of the "clean-eating club", just like them.

Soon I was looking up recipes and following bloggers on Instagram myself. The more I read about "healthy" eating habits the more obsessed I got.

I started making what Instagram told me were "healthier choices", swapping dairy milk for almond milk and trying to eat less starchy carbs.

I was so obsessed with these health bloggers I did exactly what they all said - and suddenly it was like a domino effect.

I stopped eating breakfast because fasting was good for the metabolism.

Then I stopped eating bread because gluten was the spawn of the devil.

A month later I decided to go vegan and gave up all dairy - milk, butter, cheese, yogurt and eggs.

I was obsessed with talking about it, and I𠆝 preach to anyone who would listen about the amount of added sugar in bog-standard lunches.

To everyone else I could pretend my fad diets were for health reasons - which was true to begin with.

But it quickly became more important to me that I was eating as few calories as possible and losing weight - and these diets became a great cover up so people didn&apost see how little I was eating.

I&aposd find sweet potato brownie recipes on Madeline Shaw&aposs Instagram page and then make them for my friends to try and prove to them I was eating bad stuff like brownies - but really they had about three calories in them.

The perfect cover-up for anorexia

Being vegan made it easy to turn down cake at a family party or refuse to eat mum&aposs cheesy pasta bake, and pretending to be gluten intolerant to my friends meant I didn&apost have the pressure of eating pizza with them at social occasions.

I was surviving on a diet of kale and cauliflower rice, I was malnourished, and my weight began to plummet.

Within just six months, I&aposd gone from a healthy size 8-10 to a tiny size four - and I was the same weight as the average 11-year-old. I wasn&apost getting any of the vitamins or minerals that I needed.

I was surviving on a diet of kale and cauliflower rice, I was malnourished, and my weight began to plummet.

Within just six months, I&aposd gone from a healthy size 8-10 to a tiny size four - and I was the same weight as the average 11-year-old. I wasn&apost getting any of the vitamins or minerals that I needed.

My mum took me to the doctors and I was admitted to hospital and diagnosed with anorexia.

I was treated by doctors who re-fuelled my body and I saw psychiatrists and nutritionist who helped me understand my eating disorder.

After six weeks I was discharged and headed home to try and rebuild a healthy relationship with food.

Clean-eating bloggers need to take responsibility

Now, two years on I am happy and healthy and eat what the hell I want - but I will be forever furious with the unqualified Instagram stars who told me what to eat - despite being unqualified.

The clean-eating accounts I followed had zero authority to be telling me and other young women what to eat - yet because they had loads of followers and posted pretty pictures of healthy-looking meals, I believed they were right.

I cannot stress enough how wrong this is.

Following a clean-eating diet doesn&apost mean you get all the nutrients you need.

We are literally going to end up with a generation of women with osteoporosis because they didn&apost get enough calcium to keep their bones strong while following a diet which deprives them of diary and essential amino acids by cutting out vital food groups.

It just makes me so livid.

I will say it until I&aposm blue in the face - I believe clean-eating bloggers like like Madeleine Shaw and Natasha Corrett, who both say they believe in moderation and balance - need to stand up and take responsibility before it&aposs too late.

They are ruining people&aposs lives - and these accounts need to be banned and we need to stop scaremongering people into being too scared to eat normal food.

People need to stop going to Instagram for advice and look to nutritionists instead.

But government campaigns telling us we need to eat 10 portions of fruit and veg a day are just as bad - we need more manageable goal.

There&aposs too much anxiety and worry around food - eating bread, meat and dairy never gave anyone cancer.

'Clean Eating Gave Me Anorexia'

Eve used her vegan and gluten-free diet as a way to mask her frightening eating disorder.

Nigella Lawson&aposs right - trendy fad diets are a cover-up for eating disorders.

I know because I&aposve spent the last two years recovering from an eating disorder that nearly killed me - and it all began when I started "clean-eating."

TV chef Nigella told a group of students at a lecture in Toronto this weekend that “we live in an age of fads" and admitted being disgusted by the idea of clean eating - as it suggests other foods are "dirty."

And I am SO glad to see someone finally speaking sense about this.

Like Nigella, I agree that people are using clean eating - a range of diets which focus on cutting out certain fats, sugars and animal products - as a way to hide their eating disorders, because it&aposs exactly what happened to me.

The "clean-eating" bloggers that started it all

I was 23 when I became obsessed with eating "healthy" foods and calorie counting, which eventually led to a diagnosis of anorexia.

I&aposd never been worried about my body before, but when I got my first job at a fashion mag I became increasingly aware of how slim all the women around me were - and how little they ate.

Chatter in the office was all centred around food, with my peers constantly discussing their weight, diets and "clean eating" recipes.

They&aposd always be trying out recipes and bringing in impressive lunches from health blogger Melissa Hemsley or Madeleine Shaw, covered in kale, quinoa and linseed.

As a young and impressionable journalist, I looked up these women - so I&aposd go home and make the exact same thing for the next day. I wanted to be part of the "clean-eating club", just like them.

Soon I was looking up recipes and following bloggers on Instagram myself. The more I read about "healthy" eating habits the more obsessed I got.

I started making what Instagram told me were "healthier choices", swapping dairy milk for almond milk and trying to eat less starchy carbs.

I was so obsessed with these health bloggers I did exactly what they all said - and suddenly it was like a domino effect.

I stopped eating breakfast because fasting was good for the metabolism.

Then I stopped eating bread because gluten was the spawn of the devil.

A month later I decided to go vegan and gave up all dairy - milk, butter, cheese, yogurt and eggs.

I was obsessed with talking about it, and I𠆝 preach to anyone who would listen about the amount of added sugar in bog-standard lunches.

To everyone else I could pretend my fad diets were for health reasons - which was true to begin with.

But it quickly became more important to me that I was eating as few calories as possible and losing weight - and these diets became a great cover up so people didn&apost see how little I was eating.

I&aposd find sweet potato brownie recipes on Madeline Shaw&aposs Instagram page and then make them for my friends to try and prove to them I was eating bad stuff like brownies - but really they had about three calories in them.
