In modern western culture, you probably couldn’t make it five hundred feet before running into someone on a diet. Let alone someone talking about being on a diet, or who knows a diet changed someone who’s life.

People are, in a word, fanatical about the endeavor of a better body. Nutrition is like this language. We’re all trying to speak out of necessity, but one that many struggles to grasp. This has led to the sensationalized fad diets and trends that have emerged over the years.

It’s About the Results Not the Diets

While people will praise the diets that work for them, the key to remember is that they are not celebrating the diet itself, but often the results they harnessed. The success of a diet is rarely from a new approach to an old ailment, and more often, a result of the consistency one undergoes after buying into the hype.

This isn’t to discredit the success of science-centered diets such as keto, paleo, or gluten-free. Rather, to say that there isn’t and likely will never be one particular diet that will work across the board. Author Matt Fitzgerald in his book Diet Cults goes on to explain what science is saying about the “ideal” diet.

What Science Says about Diets

Fitzgerald toggles with and debunks theories around fad diets, and interestingly reports that “science has established quite definitively that humans can thrive equally well on a variety of diets. Adaptability is the hallmark of man as an eater.”

It’s possible that as we discover more about our digestive tracts and how they differ, as well as our diverse genetics and environmental influences, we may conclude that there is no simple answer to eating right for everyone. The variety and mixing it up may be the way to go.

What do you think GR8NESS fam, tired of buying into the hype? Take our poll and let us know.
