totally agree with you @cheeeeesecake
it's like there's this competitive edge to it, which is fueled by things like Instagram and fb etc as it allows you to share (aka brag) about how healthy your meal was, how hard your work out just was etc. without social media, it's hard to maintain any kind of momentum as you'd just be talking about it constantly. which nobody wants to hear anyway. this way you can share status updates, post pics, share links to relevant articles/news stories etc. it's just way more of a platform from which to cultivate the obsession and so I think, as a consequence, it's much more extreme these days and moderation seems a thing of the past.

I have two friends who have gone this way. Totally normal and lovely people, developed an interest in clean eating and suddenly that's all I ever see or hear from them. I hardly talk to one of them any more because not long after I had dd, my boys started prep.
In the interests of making things easy for myself, I was baking a huge lot of biscuits for school lunches. I opened a can of condensed milk, but it was a gross colour so I posted it to fb. A lot of people posted helpful advice or funny comments, but she commented that she would never eat that "frankenfood".
As a new mum again I wasn't getting much sleep and I was feeling under pressure to show my boys I hadn't forgot about them and so her comment was hurtful. Also the fact that she tagged in our other "healthy lifestyle" mutual friend and they had a laugh about it together was really hurtful.
As far as I am concerned, if it turns you into a bit of a b!tch where you can say nasty stuff to vulnerable people, it's gone too far.

Oh yes...annoys the crap out of me!! (Usually because said-diets have no actual science/biochemistry behind them, yet are promoted as such).
Anyway, eat what you like, exercise in which ever mode you choose. If it works for you, that's great. And if you have friends who can put up with hearing about it constantly, you are lucky.
But please don't tell me!!!

I find the 'I quit sugar' movement the most vocal in my personal social circles. Analysing every food item for the slightest trace of 'poison' sugar, whether natural in fruit,or added.
