Diet Dogma – When What We Eat Becomes Our Identity

We see “diet dogma” particularly easily with the vegan and paleo folks. Luckily for us – the “dogma” isn’t hard. We just don’t want to raise our blood sugar. Simple as that!

Good podcast below!

Diet Dogma – When What We Eat Becomes Our Identity

via Sign of the Times

Diet dogma. Everyone wants to avoid it and generally, we all think that we are. But it seems no dietary regimen comes without adherents that get a little too fundamentalist and authoritarian. While it’s so common as to become a trope within the vegan community, Keto, Paleo and Carnivore diet communities seem to have their fair share of fundies, too.

Apparently no one is entirely free of this tendency of the human condition toward tribalism and in-group bias. It’s an uglier side of human psychology, but it seems that even something as innocuous as what we choose to eat can bring out this inherent “us vs. them” mentality.

Join us on this episode of Objective: Health as we look into the phenomenon of diet dogmatism, exploring the psychology of identifying (too strongly) with what we choose to eat.
