Suppose you, like me, want to feel good mentally and physically for your business, family and friends.

In that case, you are trying to find the perfect eating method for optimal health and a long, happy life.

I’ve been in a dietary puzzle for the last ten years. On the one hand, we’ve got the vegans who won’t touch a piece of meat with a ten-foot pole; on the other hand, we’ve got the carnivores who are convinced that eating only meat is the key to optimal health.

It’s like navigating a minefield of diets, each one more restrictive than the next. Take the keto diet, for example, where carbs are the enemy and fat is your new best friend. And do I need to get started on the Atkins diet, where carbs are the public enemy number one?

The vegan diet sounds like a dream come true for anyone who cares about the environment and animal welfare, but let’s be honest, I like my steak and eggs in the morning. And as much as I love the idea of a carnivorous diet, I can’t ignore the fact that it is costly and unsustainable.

It’s a classic case of “damned if you do, damned if you don’t.” And to top it all off, these polarised diets often rely on restrictive eating patterns. It’s like trying to solve a Rubik’s cube blindfolded.

And I still need to get started on how dieting has become a political issue. Veganism is often associated with environmental and animal welfare activism. In contrast, the carnivore diet is often associated with certain political ideologies. It’s like trying to choose a side in a political debate, except it’s about what’s for dinner.

So, my fellow foodies, the team and I discuss the polarisation of diets and how frustrating and confusing the minefield is. The good news is that there’s a way out of this dietary maze.

A flexible and balanced approach to nutrition could be the way to go.

So, let’s all take a deep breath and remember it may not be about being a vegan or a carnivore.

It’s about finding a balance that works for you. You are your own personal experiment.

And remember, always consult a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian before making any drastic changes to your diet.
