About the Author
Jason Wood turned his battle with orthorexia into a mission to break the stigma around men's mental health and eating disorders by launching his blog Orthorexia Bites in 2021. Through numerous podcast appearances, speaking engagements, and his writing, Jason is starting an important conversation that encourages everyone--especially men-- on how important it is to speak up and get the help they deserve. When not advocating for mental health awareness, Jason enjoys cheering on his Hawkeyes and exploring his new home state of Colorado with his husband Matt and their pups, Arnie and Walter.
