JHP08: Living Without Labels

—  found in  Well-being  —

One of the most common questions I receive is, "Joy, are you keto? Are you vegetarian? Are you vegan?", to which I answer, "No, I'm Joy!" :). What I mean by that is that our diets have come to define us and who we are, but I'm a big believer that we shouldn't be bound by labels or be defined by them.

I thought it would be a worthwhile conversation to talk about these labels, what they mean, the many drawbacks – and well, a couple benefits! We dive deep into discussing how many people sacrifice their own health for the beliefs that they feel they have to live up to and how social media plays a role in keeping people bound by their label.
