backstreet's back...

NKOTB & BSB were on the results show for Dancing With the Stars last night. I really impressed Mattpew with my ability to remember all the words to the songs they sang last night (I Want It That Way & Step By Step).

I thought it was perfect to have the boy bands on well as Hanson... since the theme was guilty pleasures.

Who wants to go to the NKOTBSB concert with me?


Chris & Cheryl were voted off...
they fought a good fight.

And in other news: YAHOO had another interesting headline that I had to read..."New Eating Disorders: Are They For Real?"

To sum it up - -> picky eating in adults is now called Adult Selective Eating; and "an obsession with healthy eating" (from article, not my words) is termed Orthorexia.

More on Adult Selective Eating from the article:
...researchers don’t know if adult picky eaters just haven’t outgrown childhood patterns or if their eating habits are a new twist on obsessive compulsive disorder. Some may be “supertasters,” with an abnormally acute sense of taste that turns them off certain foods. Many appear to have had unpleasant childhood associations with food.
...the focus isn’t on losing weight. Instead, sufferers increasingly restrict their diets to foods they consider pure, natural and healthful. Some researchers say that orthorexia may combine a touch of obsessive compulsive disorder with anxiety and warn that severely limited “healthy” diets may be a stepping stone to anorexia nervosa, the most severe - and potentially life-threatening - eating disorder.

If you read the article, comment & tell me your thoughts on it...I'm interested to read other opinions.
It's worth reading the article if you're interested. It's a fairly quick read.
