The whole world is going the diet way today. Either people are already
on some or the other diet or are planning one. There are many
reasons for this popularity of diets. Firstly, there is a definite paucity
of nutritional content in the routine diet that we consume today. This
is caused due to our hectic lifestyles which cause us to falter on our
mealtimes and makes us resort to junk foods. Also, there is the fact
that the food quality itself has degenerated due to the use of synthetic
fertilizers, pesticides and other chemicals. But, most importantly,
there is a gross ignorance about nutrition. Most people just do not
know what it means to eat well.
Thus, there are a lot of reasons why our food quality has gone
abysmally down. And, there is no respite in sight. We are not going to
become regular with our mealtimes—our lifestyle has changed too
drastically to go back now—and we are not going to see fruits and
vegetables of impeccable qualities like they were obtained previously.
That is the reason people are resorting to some or the other dietary
pattern. They may do this because they want to keep their weight in
check, or they want to get adequate amounts of a particular nutrient
or simply because they believe in the diet and know that it will benefit
their bodies more than their routine meals.
