Can clean eating lead to damaging food habits?

Earlier this month, Nigella Lawson sparked controversy by claiming the fashion for clean eating – eating non-processed food in its most natural state – can mask eating disorders and make other ways of eating feel dirty. The celeb chef said: People are using certain diets as a way to hide an eating disorder or a great sense of unhappiness with their own body. She added: There is a way in which food is used to self-congratulate – you’re a better person because you’re eating like that – or to self-persecute. We ask two celebs what they think
Reality TV star and personal trainer Josie Gibson, who went from a size 20 to a 10-12 in 2012, says: I don’t think clean eating masks eating disorders. It’s
changed my life for the better and I feel so much happier and healthier. I always cook from scratch and make healthier options of meals such as curry and pizza. I wouldn’t eat a shop-bought sandwich as you don’t know what’s in it. Why would you fill your body with processed food and junk when you can have a home -made alternative that will make you feel good? I admit I’m a bit obsessive about what I eat during the week; I have to be otherwise I’ll put on weight. But I relax my diet on the weekend and I think there are worse things to be obsessed with than healthy eating! I don’t see Nigella making food with processed ingredients. Of course you need to enjoy a treat sometimes, but discouraging people from clean eating isn’t a good thing.
I don’t think it’s healthy when people cut out food groups, it can become obsessive. You should allow yourself treats. Joanna, via Facebook

HEITV weathergirl Clare Nasir dropped from a size 16 to size 8 in 2011. She has since relaxed her diet and is a size 8-10. She says: When I’m on a diet, I can get quite obsessed. I wasn’t surprised by Nigella’s comments – if you’ve got an addictive personality eating clean’ can be dangerous. I’ve seen people who
are taking it too seriously – you can see in their faces their body is not getting the nutrients it needs. When I dropped to a size 8, I was very disciplined – I didn’t go out to restaurants because I didn’t know what was in the food. It’s also hard not to end up making judgements about what others are eating. It became boring for everyone around me too. I took it seriously for about a year -I dropped from 10dst to 7dst – but it’s easy for dieting to spiral out of control. I was happy with my weight loss but I’ve relaxed my regime and still feel and look good without being obsessive about what’s in every single meal.
