Defining the “Diet”: Road to Fitness, Chapter 15

diet

After Meg announced last week that she had fallen off the WW wagon, I started thinking more about diets and dieting. You hear everyone talking about gluten-free, carb-free, sugar-free, etc. these days and it’s really hard to know what is best. I mean, every few years, the various diet trends all end up getting debunked anyway (hello, Atkins diet).

I have never been a big “dieter,” (I refuse to deny myself of eating meatballs every once in a while) and I firmly believe that every person is different – that GF-free diet that may work for you, may not be right for someone else who is on the veggies-only train. Meg gave WW a go, but at the end of the day, it just didn’t fit her lifestyle and that’s okay. I don’t know if there is a Holy Grail of diets out there, but here are a few diet-friendly items from around the web that just might make your head spin.

  • This woman started the Anti-Diet Project last fall and is sharing all sorts of helpful diet and work out experiences from her journey – and isn’t getting wrapped up in the fads of the moment.
  • This new book teaches you how to be a foodist. Not up on the lingo? Foodism is the practice of eating mostly uncooked and unprocessed foods (also known as a fancy term for eating raw food).
  • Womp womp – a new study shows that red wine and dark chocolate may not be as good for us as originally thought. #sadday
  • My addiction to sparkling water is real. Thankfully it’s mostly okay to drink and definitely better than soda!
  • BuzzFeed is getting into the “Clean Eating” game with their Clean Eating challenge. Another catchy phrase for eating whole foods and avoiding anything processed and refined.

Are you doing anything new and different to detox or get in shape for bathing suit season?
