 Eating disorder - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Some psychologists also classify a syndrome called orthorexia as an eating disorder, or, more properly, "disordered eating" - the person is overly obsessed with the consumption of what they see as the 'right' foods for them (vegan, raw foods, etc), to the point that their nutrition and quality of life suffers.
Some eating problems, such as chronic overeating, are not always regarded as mental disorders, but as a lack of self-control, as the idea of "compulsion" suggests.
The eating may be too excessive (compulsive over-eating), too limited (restricting), may include normal eating punctuated with episodes of purging, may include cycles of binging and purging, or may encompass the ingesting of non-foods.

 The Great Banana Revolution - Should you peel bananas from the bottom up? By Steven E. Landsburg
Bananas are more bruised on their non stem end because they are shipped in bunches, joined tightly together at the stems, left to sit on their bottoms, as it were, and more free to bump up against the harsh realities of the world with their freer ends.
When we stock bananas at the market, or select them as consumers, we handle them from the top and plunk them down on their bottoms." The point being that if we all ate from the bottom, the bananas would be handled differently and the bruises would be on the top.
Unorthodox banana habits may be more common than is generally recognized.

 Reforming the eating clubs,By John Kimble '02,Monday, Februrary 8, 1999
Instead of bickering or signing into a club, students interested would pay an eating club fee, perhaps the average cost of all the clubs, at the beginning of their junior and senior years, which could give them access to any eating club for any meal.
I’ve asked a number of my friends who are black why most of the black students eat and party way down at the end of the ‘Street’ at Stevenson and the Third World Center instead of at the eating clubs.
Clubs would also probably have to limit the number of people allowed to use their facilities for each meal to prevent everyone from trying to eat in one or two clubs, but they would still be encouraged to do more than simply cater to a small group of students.
