Hello there I’m Allie, a college student at San Francisco State University, majoring in Sociology. Growing up in an Asian family, I get a lot of judgements about my weight and what I eat. Thus, diet has been such a big part of my life and I am still constantly researching and wanting to explore more about the subject. Throughout this blog, my main question would be: What makes Diet such an important issue in today’s society?. I believe that dieting has becoming more controversial and bigger today than ever before. So far, the most important debate that I know of is the question of whether people should diet or not, and it is because there are misconceptions about the term. Therefore, my blog will be about interpreting the concept of diet, digesting into different issues and multiple perspective of conversations revolving about the topic, and clarify the misunderstanding of the word. I hope you will learn something interesting when you read my posts.
