Here’s the link to the article on ABC’s site:
Thanks to everyone who watched me on 20/20 Friday night and for all the supportive comments you left! Over all I was pleased with how it turned out. I didn’t really like how they linked me to the raw foods movement as, funnily enough, that’s one diet I’ve never tried. I also didn’t like how they made it sound like it was still a problem for me (“what will happen to Charlotte NEXT!??!!”) when it is mostly in my past. True I still have eating issues but considering where I was a couple of years ago, I’m so much better. Not perfect, but better:) The last thing that bugged me was how extreme they made Orthorexia sound. It’s not just people who do raw foods or macrobiotics. It’s people who take any “healthy” eating to the extreme.
My favorite part? The squirrel!!! Ah, that made my whole night:) Also, I really liked how they ended with that quote from me. That was the ONE THING I really hoped they’d include from me and they did. So yay! I really do believe that orthorexia is an eating disorder – separate and apart from anorexia or ED-NOS. For me it was closer to OCD and once I started CBT it cleared up fairly quickly.
I am planning a blog to talk about the whole “behind the scenes” aspect of filming this piece but for now, I wanted to just tell you all thanks again for watching me and supporting me (and still loving me!).
