303-The Food Freedom Diet: Diet Culture’s Clickbait

by | Dec 2, 2021 | 0 comments

Food Freedom

The Food Freedom Diet is diet culture’s clickbait. As a result, “food freedom” gets tossed around a lot and is used to cover up diet culture.   

The truth is, it is simply normal eating. It is our innate state of being as humans until the moment restriction comes in.  

It layers on restrictions and rules under the disguise of “freedom”.  

Diet culture red flags

Learn its red flags so that you can avoid its trap. For example, a red flag is a plan that tells you there is a right or wrong way of eating.

Another red flag is a plan that centres food, body, and weight. When this is the focus, internalized fatphobia goes unexamined.

We feel attracted to this because it feels comfortable and it doesn’t ask us to change our beliefs. As a result, we stay stuck in the system of diet culture. 

It’s easier to fix your body than to unpack the fear of fatness

Diet culture makes you feel like the problem. However, the oppressive systems of diet culture are what really need to be fixed.

You have to unpack your fear of fatness and address diet culture beliefs to embrace true freedom. Unfortunately, focusing on food and body alone won’t get you there.

  • Food Freedom is the new clickbait of diet culture
