Who else thinks diet has gotten way out of hand.?

I’m just doing this as a poll cause I just heard something absolutely ridiculous.
I knew that the health in middle school and high school was a joke cause I’ve been in them before. They teach nothing to benefit the students except trying to put the fear of God in them when it comes to sex. Which I have to say doesn’t help at all. But I’ve also seen many young girls on here asking about diets and mentioning starving themselves to get what they consider a healthy body. I’ve also seen answers suggesting unhealthy diets and small periods of starving the body to loose pounds. I try to help when I can but honestly I can’t answer every question about diet and loosing weight and a lot of people only consider answers who are most popular or what has been said over and over again.

But what spurred this on was an advertisement for a Vodka that was suppose to help you loose weight. It’s obviously meant for adults but they were talking you can have both the benefits of alcohol and the new acai berry. Which it is a bit true about the alcohol part but not in abundance. After hearing this I nearly did a face palm.

So who else things that diet has gotten way out of hand. I also want to see what people on here think what a diet is.

So feel free to leave your opinion and any questions you might have and I’ll be willing to answer those.
pearl. I don’t think you read my question correctly. I know quite a bit about the acai berry. Also it’s quite abundant. You don’t have to go through those scam websites to get it so no you don’t go bankrupt.

G I completely agree. I ate terribly in high school cause I wasn’t taught any different. When I got to college and took an actual health class I decided to give up all junk foods and sodas and to exercise a lot more. It’s so true about the mental part. Not having that sugar was so difficult but after a while it got easier and I lost a total of 30 pounds. I didn’t think I was over weight but I was so wrong. I’m actually glad that I took that health class.

    people place losing weight on this ginormous pedastal, losing weight is 100 times tougher MENTALLY than it is PHYSICALLY. if you can get inside your head and eat the right things and make time to work out properly & also sleep alot more and make your lifestyle generally alot more healthier than you will see that PHYSICALLY you will become healthier. more than 50% of losing weight is mental it’s not the physical pains of working out or "hunger pings" or w/e (they’re should be any if you eat the right things in small amounts or even normal portions like you said dont starve yourself) but it’s all the mentalness of im depriving myself of the food i like, etc. its all a mental game if more ppl knew that and werent so psyched out by the idea of losing weight, the concept of losing weight would be so much more open and less of embarking on this ginormous challenge & stuff just eat healthy and excersise you can’t go wrong.
