The Internatioal No Diet Day is dedicated to promote a healthy lifestyle.

How to celebrate International No Diet Day?

  • Recognizing that your body is magnificent is the key to accepting and understanding that you must be healthy instead of trying to look a certain way.
  • Avoid getting unnecessarily stressed, as it can be bad for your health. Stay active and focus on eating a conscious diet daily.
  • Think about everything you like in yourself. It would help you have more positivity in your life and avoid all negativity.
  • Celebrate this day by cooking or eating your favorite foods. Do not count the calories and indulge in your favourite dessert, because you deserve it!
  • Appreciate your body even if you can’t lose those 15 pounds as promised. Confidence is a good practice; this is a great day to start. 
  • Remember that self-love is essential for both mental and physical health. 
  • Educate yourself on various eating disorders and encourage people to self-love.
  • Most importantly, be kind to yourself, your body, and the people around you.

Did you know there exists a diet called the Blood Type Diet? Doctors have started prescribing diets to people based on their blood type. Here, each blood group has different dietary instructions to follow and can be best instructed by a professional.

Busting the myths about dieting

  • Crash diets are very low-calorie, consuming less than 800 calories daily. These diets, if unmonitored, can be fatal. They deprive the body of nutrients and may lead to cardiac arrest.
  • Contrary to what some diets preach, eggs don’t confer unhealthy cholesterol. They are safe, nutritious, and healthy to eat.
  • The gluten-free diet trend may be pointless. These are only recommended to individuals with celiac disease or other illnesses and may not be ideal for others.
  • Skipping breakfast will 
  • +do more harm to you than good. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and should not be skipped for any reason. Studies show that breakfast skippers are more likely to be overweight than those who don’t skip the first meal. 
  • No, supplements are not diet alternatives. Supplements are helpful but cannot be the only thing you eat. Though many people on a diet turn to supplements to shed a few pounds, they may not work, which can be frustrating enough. 
  • Speak to a doctor and a registered nutritionist before switching to any particular diet regimen.

On International No Diet Day, you can eat everything you want. It allows us to focus on other things instead of constantly thinking about limiting food and suppressing food cravings. Biologically, unsupervised dieting can lead to unhealthy changes in body composition, hormonal changes, reduced bone density, menstrual disturbances, and more. Normalizing that being healthy is enough is important, and you don’t have to push yourself to look a certain way. This day teaches us self-love even if it is hard to look in the mirror some days and completely love the person you see in it. Young people, especially women, must resist societal pressures, which take a huge mental toll. Let’s take this day to realize that there is beauty in every size and shape.

There are more than 100 different types of diets around the world. However, most of these diets offer short-term weight loss that may not be sustainable. In addition, aggressive dieting can decrease the metabolic rate. Therefore, you should always talk to your doctor before trying anything alone.

Note: People suffering from chronic illnesses like diabetes, kidney disease, or heart disease must refrain from celebrating this day. Diet modifications doctors and nutritionists suggest to manage specific diseases must be followed sincerely. This day is mainly about creating awareness about the unhealthy diet restrictions people follow to improve their appearance.
