Your Diet Is a Cult
Sports nutritionist Matt Fitzgerald’s new book, Diet Cults, comes out today. Fitzgerald, who is also the author of the popular books Iron Wars and Racing Weight, uses Diet Cults to argue against the idea that there is any one way to eat. He covers popular diets such as Atkins, the raw food movement, and the Paleo Diet, and explains why he believes all are false in claiming that we should exclude a wide range of food. In Diet Cults, Fitzgerald also proposes an alternative way of eating, which he calls “agnostic healthy eating.” We asked Fitzgerald all about his new book.
