Social media sites such as Instagram have been accused of fuelling a 'clean eating' disorder.

According to dietitians, people are restricting their diets as a result of following users who constantly post pictures of healthy food.

This obsession with clean eating has been labelled 'orthorexia'.

Can people actually overdo it when it comes to so-called healthy living?

Brianna Parkins and Lorcan Nyhan discussed this story in The Week Trending.

They also talked about the Krispy Kreme craze sweeping Ireland, the effects of the #MeToo movement on the workplace, the idea of employers granting mental health breaks, and Eric Cantona's bizarre award acceptance speech.
