The Deification of Food

By Laura Moncur @ 5:00 pm — Filed under:

The Diet Blog analyzes a diet article that essentially deifies food and compares eating choices with sinning.

I grew up with this sort of eating mentality and it wasn’t until I released these thoughts that I was able to lose weight the healthy way.

“Look at the words used here – wrong/right, sin/salvation. We’ve actually managed to deify food. It’s no surprise that so many people get trapped in a life long diet obsession – living in a cycle of pleasure/punishment.”

“Such advice is well-meaning, but ultimately I don’t believe it is the answer.”

Next time you feel like you’ve “sinned” and you need to “repent”, remember that this is about living a healthy life, not about being “good”. You are already a good person, you just didn’t plan your eating very well. Do better next time.
