The greatest trick that clean eating ever pulled was to convince the world it existed!
I continue to scour the health and fitness horizon for the meaning behind this paradox.
The diet fad that ripped through the industry was like a hurricane across the southeast of England, certainly left its mark. Confused dieters are synonymous with felled trees in its aftermath.
I continue enquiring to see if anyone can shed some light on it or what the parameters were behind the concept. Yet nobody can clarify.
‘Did you have to wash all the food with fairy liquid before consumption?’
‘Are there foods that identified with clean, dirty, or unsoiled?’
Still no answers!
My limited findings to date are that there seems to be a hint of assigning morality. Some omittance of ingredients. And a proclivity towards erroneous labeling like ‘natural’ and ‘organic’.
It’s tough to get answers because people’s retorts are always the same.
‘What is it?’ I ask.
‘You know, eating clean’. They reply.
‘Yes, but what does that mean?’
Then silence, a shrug, or an uttering about not eating crap.
Anyway, I’ll keep my ear to the ground. When I get some specificity over one of the biggest hoaxes to riddle the fitness world I’ll get back to you.
If you do know anything that would allude to an explanation please reply.
