The Religion of Dieting

When did one’s diet become a religion? Watching a low carb versus high carb debate is like watching the Crusades; no horses or swords, just powerpoint slides, and straw man arguments. After two, mind-numbing hours you end up with a bunch of nothing—no opinions are changed and everyone’s time is wasted. Everybody goes back to their cult-like tribes, ferociously posting their gripes on the internet.

Each diet presents its own rules, canon, methods of cooking, and the timing of meals. If you were to read a diet book published today without looking at its title, you’d think you were reading from a religious text. With each new study that appears, the blogosphere explodes with “proof” headlines, celebrating their vindication.
