The Diet Trend That Really Grinds My Gears

Can you guess what it is? There are little hints here & here

It’s the diet trend where people only eat one type of food, or one company’s food for way too long.

Like the pizza man, the McDonalds man, and the Starbucks girl. Yup, Beautiful Existence is her name. To be fair, the Starbucks one is probably the healthiest if there has to be one. But how can you spend that much money on something so dumb? I don’t get it.

I really took notice after this post from Healthy Bitch Daily and if you haven’t read it yet, you defs should.

It makes me so annoyed that people think these diets are cool, fascinating, or makes them think fast food isn’t that bad. EW. Get some brains. That was mean, but I’m not sorry.

Do people only care about weight? Does no one care about their skin, or organs or the actual mechanics of the human body? Vitamins and minerals are so important for every single cell and nobody on these diets seems concerned about having proper energy levels or what is actually happening inside of them.

What good is a thinner body from eating 100% McDonalds, if your complexion is gray, you can’t walk up some stairs, your hair is falling out and you have a cold 24/7?

Because these kinds of “stories” get so much media attention and are “backed up” by sciency studies, people think it’s all good and maybe they should give it a go – WTF? I can’t deal!

Even the widely trusted Dr. Oz is on board. So many people think that Dr. Oz is actually “their” doctor and now he has come out with a Fast Food Diet Plan. Sure, the options in this plan really aren’t too bad, and they’re his choices for when you absolutely have to get some fast food. It’s the whole name, notion and that it’s a thing that really gets me. Why can’t it be called Dr. Oz’s Best Fast Food Choices For Only When You’re In A Jam?

If grabbing food to go is your thing, it doesn’t have to be all fried chicken, burgers and onion rings. If you want a Big Mac, more power to you, but don’t have one tomorrow too! The saying “everything in moderation” rings true once again!

Sandwiches, salads and wraps from deli’s and markets are just as quick to pick up as it is to go to a drive-through. So…

What do you guys think?

    Oh my goodness, this is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life. I cannot believe people live like this! I mean I’m all for doing what you want, but this is taking it a little too far. I would never be interested in doing any trendy diet because it’s all a bunch of BS. The only way to look great and feel great is to eat healthy and workout.

    These diets are a joke. They can’t even be called diets. When you look at the ingredient lists on some of the “baked goods” from fast food chains there are over FIFTY ingredients in some of them. If you can’t pronounce 90% of the ingredients it is definitely not good for your body. I do love me a Caramel Macchiato but definitely skip the food.
    I think as a society we have to move away from dieting to lose weight and look to healthy living (“Healthy Collective” if you will – lol!) as a lifestyle and not just a quick-fix. Dr.Oz is a no longer a health doctor and is now a Big Business – he gives the mass media what they want and apparently McD is what they crave (BARF!)

    I eat a fairly healthy diet and when I eat junk I feel horrible — and at the same time, I can see how one would get used to the feeling and think it’s normal or get some drugs to counteract stomach issues or whatever other issues arise. so sad. so destructive. wasteful. death. how long has the human race been here? And this can happen?
