All popular diets operate on a single underlying principle. Change my mind.
I see a lot of stupid people and their stupid opinions on a daily basis. All these stupid people have one overwhelming similarity: they operate in extremes. Bro diets, keto, atkins, intermittent fasting, paleo, no sugar, juicing and god forbid veganism are all examples of popular health and weight loss fads being pushed on the public, all being touted as the next best thing for weight loss. What most people don't understand is that all of these eating strategies are simply bastardised complications of the oh so simple truth that if you want to lose biomass of any sort then you are going to need to be in an energy deficit or in colloquial terms a CFD (Calorie Fucking Deficit).
