Posting Food Photos to Social Media is a Sign You Have an Eating Disorder

Do you post photos of your meals to Twitter, Instagram and Facebook? Maybe you even pin it on Pinterest!

According to Dr. Valerie Taylor, of the University of Toronto, this is a sign of an eating disorder. Or at least an unhealthy relationship with food.

“You don’t take pictures of who you’re with, you take pictures of what you’re eating,” psychiatrist Dr. Taylor told the CBC in Canda. “For some people who have predisposition for weight behaviors, it just goes that one step further, and they start to develop unhealthy weight disorders.”

She added that because of your need to post pictures of your food, you are more likely to eat unhealthy food. She unveiled her presentation, titled “Food Fetish: Society’s Complicated Relationship with Food,” at the Canadian Obesity Summit earlier this month.

Now that we have that information, here’s some delicious items from Dan’s BBQ Journey. You can follow Dan and all his photos on Instagram and Twitter.
