“The Fuck It Diet” may have been shocking enough to catch your eye.
Maybe you were wondering what I actually mean by it.
Or, maybe you have had similar expletive sentiments towards diets and food phobias and weight obsession.
Or maybe you will never even read this far because you are highly offendeddddd.
But, plainly: I’ve been dieting for over ten years, and it has run me ragged. For so long, I thought dieting was the only way to get a hold of my “food addiction” but it turns out… the opposite is true. Dieting causes (what feels like) food addiction. Obsessing over weight loss causes (what feels like) food addiction. And I thought you deserved to know that.
So, on this site, as I write about what I’ve been learning as I heal my relationship with food and weight, there will be a fair share of questioning our collective body image norms, and challenging the images the media puts in our heads. This will also be a place to challenge some of the things we think of as “healthy” and “unhealthy”. Foods will be defended. Ideas will be defended.
But mostly: peace of mind will be defended.
Because, Fuck It means we don’t have to listen to what diets have told us, and suddenly there is a little space for peace.
I will do my best to make sure this site doesn’t add any more dogma into the world.
This site will hopefully be a Dogma Buster.
The use of the phrase “Fuck It” is supposed to be a spiritual phrase… “Let Go”.
Welcome to The Fuck It Diet.
I hope this site can offer you some peace of mind.
