I do not agree with this. Orthorectic people are obsessed with eating correct things. This means they are afraid that certain foods are really bad for them, but also includes foods that are suppodsed to be ethically "incorrect" (meat, dairy, imported stuff, non-organic food).
The people on the board are mainly trying to find a way to handle their acne.
The day someone would take their acne away from them, I am quite sure one of the first things many would do , is to eat a huge pizza hut cheesy crust pizza , and Icea cream and french fries and a ton of chocolate mousse. Without feeling bad (besides the hurting stomach after that orgy maybe).
I am still careful about what I eat because I am a very active person and like being physically fit. I don't feel well to be active when I'm in a sugar coma from pizza and ice cream.
But to relate, I used to be super conscientious of bacteria on my skin. A clean pillowcase every night, never touched my face, sanitized everything I touched, washed my face meticulously every night.
Since clearing up my acne with spironolactone, I wash my sheets once a week like normal people, touch my face without worrying, and sometimes I even sleep in my makeup if I'm really tired and can't be bothered to get up from the couch I crashed on...
I think most people on here are just trying really hard to control their acne. If the acne went away, so would the food obsession.
