Is There a One-Size-Fits-All Diet?
The answer is no.
As we discovered with my oldest son when he was entering the world of food, no “diet” would have perfectly fit his needs, and no one diet can perfectly fit your needs.
Just seeing how diet trends and nutritional advice have changed over the past 5, 10, 20, 100 years should tell you that there isn’t a perfect fix. Food journalist and author Michael Pollen wrote in the introduction to his book Food Rules that “Nutrition science, which after all only got started less than two hundred years ago, is today approximately where surgery was in the year 1650 - very promising, and very interesting to watch, but are you ready to let them operate on you? I think I'll wait awhile.” Let that sink in while it gives you some perspective to why we haven’t fully nailed down nutrition and the ideal human diet.
We’ve discussed how diets need to be for an individual, not for the majority. Biochemical individuality, cultural impact, geographic factors, lifestyle, activity levels, and personal goals and preferences all play an important role in each person’s specialized diet habits. Don’t let a fad diet lead you along with the masses, claiming it is perfect for everyone.
You now have a better understanding that there is no one-size-fits-all diet. Go and cultivate a healthy relationship with food. Your food. This will allow you to achieve sustainable wellness for yourself, not for others. When you’ve found your perfect individualized diet, feel free to share it with others, knowing that it will not be perfect for them, but can start them on the right path for their own health.
We would love to help steer you into the right path for your own wellness journey. Remember, it's not about finding the perfect diet; it's about finding the perfect diet for YOU.
