Eat everything | ditch diet culture

You have tried all the diets. Paleo, vegan, keto, intermittent fasting, 5 and 2 dieting, eat right for your blood type, counting calories, points counting, low-carb, low-sugar, no carb, high fat, macro, IIFYM (if it fits your macros), no grains, no gluten...the list goes on! Diet culture has a lot to answer for. When faced with limited ingredients, one might ask – what can you eat now?

There is no universal right or wrong answer for diet. Maybe you just do not like bananas much. Like fingerprints, food choices are unique only to you. Dive into untangling some of the myths around diet culture, the history of how it progressed and why you can return to food like a hero.
