Eventually, and after a year, I had reached the following conclusion: you don’t need to follow a trendy diet to be healthy.

Remember — it’s a cheat meal, not a cheat day! It’s not a go-ahead to eat anything and everything.
Good mental health is an essential part of a healthy life.
To change your lifestyle is a tall order.
Thousands of people were starting to follow my journey, so I was quick to justify my behavior and tell myself that I was doing a good thing. I wasn’t taking into effect that I had developed a serious social anxiety, especially when food was involved.
