“I’m on a diet”, “I can’t eat this and that because I’m on a diet”, “How many calories are there in this small bar of chocolate”…

The diet culture has long affected people’s lives and it has gone into a whole different state where it became a lot more toxic than it should’ve been.
The diet culture is the unhealthy obsession with labeling “good’ and ‘bad’ foods, the constant struggle to lose weight fast, to be skinny like a model, and convincing yourself that this is normal.
Paranoia, anxiety, stress, anorexia, body dysphoria, and other eating disorders are all part of the toxic traits of the diet culture. People get so wrapped up in these ideas and thoughts that they stop everything they do to focus on how to execute their “genius” plan of losing weight.
The diet culture changed categories from a health issue/ healthy lifestyles to a pure business industry that “health” products are profiting of off.
Don’t get me wrong people sometimes need diet pan to stick to it and lose weight; whether for a health issue, or simply maintaining their body image. But in today’s world people stopped searching for ways to become healthy, they search for seasonal changes in their body because of what others might say if I went to the beach.
So for that and for many reasons, we will be tackling the diet culture in all its aspects and how to avoid it at all cost.
