About Orthorexia Bites

Meet Jason

I am on the winning side of my battle with orthorexia but I am so much more than a guy with an eating disorder. I am all about meeting new people and having fun. I am a huge sports fan. Go Hawks! Go Jags! I enjoy exploring my new home of Colorado with my husband Matt and our two pups Arnie and Walter. And if you like Bob's Burgers, That 70's Show, The Office or Schitt's Creek then we're already best friends! :)
