Judging by the depiction of dietary practices today, it is quite obvious that people believe that their diet is an optional choice rather than an obligation. Their decision is based upon whether they like a certain food or not. We may be allowed to eat whatever we choose to eat but that doesn’t make it right for us. None of us have the power to force our body into accepting what we think it should be using for fuel (food).
Diet is not a social choice; it is a calculated scientific obligation consists of set rules that are prescribed for specific biological makeup. We don’t get to choose what we should to eat, our body does. We can be disrespectful of our biological integrity but regardless we will always be subjected to its fate. We get sick when it gets sick, we live when it lives and we die when it dies.
Our diet isn’t like a pair of shoes or a shirt we choose to wear; we don’t choose our diet it chooses us. And that choice is not through free will but based upon our specific biology. Our diet is assigned to us by nature and it is for us to respect.
