Diets and diet talk is everywhere. It only takes walking into a book store and searching the “health and wellbeing” section to see that there are many books promoting different diets. You may have already been exposed to diets in some form. There may be different reasons why someone chooses to diet, and many promise to make you feel happier, healthier and more fulfilled (at least in the short term). But the thing about diets is that they often promote a restricted and rigid way of eating, which might include limiting your food intake and/or removing certain food groups or items from your eating often in an attempt to influence weight and body shape. However, this approach is not sustainable in the long term (despite what books, social media, or television advertisements may say!).
