Are you promoting healthy eating, or are you promoting diet culture? In my opinion, there is a very fine line between the two. I think you’re more likely to be promoting diet culture if you have an unhealthy relationship with food or if you have a (diagnosed or undiagnosed) eating disorder. It is one thing to want to help others who do not have a clue about making healthier choices, and another thing to want to push a particular ideology on unsuspecting people.
There is a lot of confusion on social media about diet and health, but I think it mainly comes from unqualified health bloggers. My advice to you is to be careful where you get your health/nutrition advice from. Diet is personal to every single one of us. No particular diet works exactly the same for everyone, it is wise to listen to advice but tweak it to suit your own needs. If you need extra help, consult a professional and do not google or take advice from unqualified individuals on social media. In most cases, social media ‘influencers’ are there to earn a living and will tell you whatever they think you want to hear to push an agenda or pay their bills. Not everyone is honest, and just because you see smiling faces in photos or stories, it doesn’t mean they know what they’re talking about or that they have your best interest at heart. ~
