Women spend an average of 17 yearsof their life dieting. Only for most of them to gain the weight back each time within the first 3 years, and more than half of it within the first year.This was true for my own experience and has been true for the clients that I serve today.

The best decision I ever made was to step off this treadmill and decided never to diet again.

Research has discovered that dieting is not a sustainable way to achieve and maintain weight loss. The more a person goes on and off a diet (dieting history) the quicker the body will respond physiologically: the metabolic rate becomes lower, hunger is higher, and the signal to tell the brain the body has had enough fuel is broken. This results in the gaining of weight and difficulties in being able to listen and respond to our bodys needs.

Unfortunately, the process of learning how to stop dieting and eat normally again isnt usually as simple or easy as we might like. Especially if weve been following supposed trendy weight loss fads for a long time.

If youre fed up with being stuck in the cycle of yo-yo diets, maybe its now time to move your focus away from the number on the scale or your bodys size and shape, and toward nourishing your body and enjoying the experience of eating like a way of fulfilling ourselves in mind, and spirit, too.

Stepping off the diet treadmill for good means changing your relationship with food and then starting to experience more joy, appreciation, peace, and freedom. Freedom from counting and calculating, emotional attachments to scales or calories, peace with your body and enjoyment of family, food, and friends.

Here are 3 ways to help you started.

Instead of searching the internet or the newest magazine to tell you how, what and when you should eat, start tuning into your bodys natural hunger and fullness cues. Intuitive eating, according to the developers Elyse Resch and Evelyn Tribole is a self-care-based eating framework, which integrates instinct, emotion, and rational thought into the eating experience. A way to steer by internal body signals and wisdom rather than external rules.

The biggest reason for a person to go on a diet is to lose weight. What comes with that, is the desire to change the way their body looks. This is because they dont like how it appears in a mirror, they compare it to others, or dont feel good in it.Body neutrality is a middle-of-the-road approach to how you feel in your body (body image). It suggests neither loving nor hating your body. Its based on the notion of body appreciation, acceptance and respect for your physical structure while focusing on your strengths.

You already know that exercise has some amazing effects on your overall health, mobility, strength, and energy. Yet, as we get older, it can become one more thing to put on our to-do list. Or it may come with a lot of self-imposed rules like I have to get my heart rate to a specific point, or I have to go to the gym, or if I dont have an hour, its not worth it. Disconnecting exercise from these rules and must do, or should do lists, and towards a what is really important to me list, can make moving your body must less daunting. Bring your attention to WHY moving your body is important to you. This can make finding the motivation to exercise easier, more enjoyable and sustainable. Try choosing to accept that you deserve a healthy, strong, and flexible body.

Adopting these mindful practices is a way to transform your relationship with food. Sometimes, just slowing down and paying attention to the way we eat can help us to make better food choices and manage cravings.

Of course, the way we eat and think about food are both influenced by many factors, most of which arent about (or at least only about) food itself. If youre having trouble reconnecting with your body in a more intuitive way, its worth getting some professional help for any underlying issues about food and eating.

In 2015, a poster for weight-loss products with a model in her bikini and the caption: Are you beach body ready? was voted the worst advert of the year. You might remember it, that poster, that summer, when we were gently radicalised on our daily commute. The company denied it was body shaming, saying instead its intention was to make the nation healthier and fitter. You can see how the confusion arose there was a lot of it about.

2015 was also the year that a survey of adolescents revealed 60% of them exercised to lose weight (compared to 7% in 1986) and another of 10-year-old girls found 80% had been on a diet. An odd time. A moment. This was a time when burgers were dirty, of course, and the concept of cheat days had gone mainstream, and body-positive influencers were dancing in knickers all over Instagram. A moment maybe, when adults were starting to react, en masse, to decades of body shame and a diet culture that told us it was virtuous to stay thin. Were saying they refused to conform to the idea that our body weight had moral or ethical implications. But we forgot to tell the children.

Last week, it was reported there was an alarming rise in children trying to lose weight, with one in four on a diet. Diet is an old-fashioned word today, often couched in the velvet terms of wellness and health, but, even so, data analysed from 34,235 children found that, compared to 1997, in 2015 there had been a significant increase in weight-loss attempts. The University of Oxfords researcher added there was also an increasing proportion of children with a healthyweight trying to lose weight. This suggests greater attention is needed to target weight-control messages appropriately. Like I said, it is confusing; even more so for kids.

Will this glass of milk make me fat? a friends seven-year-old asked them yesterday over lunch at school her classmate had told her that dairy was bad. Another girl had weighed in to explain why bread was worse. My daughter stumbles over words shes been taught can be offensive, like fat, but knows, too, theres a problem with obesity in children, which is why they dont have sweets at school. Just before Covid hit, Weight Watchers (now called WW) released a free mobile app for kids to track their diets, a launch criticised for promoting disordered eating in children and for sending the message (one theyre not alone in promoting) that acceptance will only come once theyve changed their bodies.

Its no wonder these subjects bewilder kids: theyre emotive, theyre complicated, and more often than not theyre fuelled by stigma rather than science. Definitions of obesity are based on the flawed metric of BMI (never intended to be used to measure individuals bodies), but numerous studies have shown a higher BMI doesnt necessarily mean youre less healthy. And it can shift: in the US in the late 1990s the BMI threshold was changed, meaning around 29 million Americans woke up to find themselves suddenly overweight.

2015 was also an odd year for my body personally, as (having recently been pregnant, and received congratulations from health workers on putting on so little weight) I was praised by strangers for snapping back to a pre-pregnancy body. Of course, I was lonely and depressed and thin because of the relentless breastfeeding. But I became horribly aware of the guilt and pride that comes with such scrutiny, and then, fascinated by the effects body image can have on pregnant women, and how problems can be unconsciously transmitted to their children. It was a stark realisation, of the link between how an adult treats their body and how a child learns to feel about their own.

Todays children are wading through badly mixed messages about food and bodies, living with parents who are struggling to afford basic dinners, or whove been dieting since their teens, or cutting out wheat, or dairy, or sugar at a magazines suggestion, or fasting for two days a week to lose weight, or saying all bodies are beautiful in the morning then standing by a mirror noisily hating their own by evening. And so its no surprise that, like their panicking parents, many are dieting, attempting to gain some control.

But kids dont need to diet. Like adults, most children who diet end up at a higher weight, and develop disordered eating patterns which are incredibly hard to unlearn. But the fact that so many feel they need to should be a huge wake-up call for us, the adults who taught them it was normal, through the long sighs at our bellies, and the hundred, Oh I shouldnts when the cake came round. Can we really say the rise in dieting kids is alarming, when we have been silently telling them this quest for a smaller body is worthy and compulsory, something that makes us more human? By failing to make peace with our bodies, were passing the war on to our children.

In Frankie's TikTok videos, he often mentions that his booty building program isn't about dieting or cutting calories. Frankie'sniche is actually helping girls gain weight by building a booty: "All you need to do for your body to transform is to track your calories and protein you're either in a caloric surplus to gain weight, or a caloric deficit to lose weight. Your booty and lower body muscles growing will transform your physique because of the amount of muscle mass being built."

Frankie recommends that if you struggle to gain weight, you most likely havea very fast metabolism, so don't force yourself to diet or "eat super clean" relax and enjoy some higher calorie meals. "Cleaner plates carry less calories," says Frankie. "I also preach it's good to have a balance of both, as long as the calories and protein are being reached."

Try pairing your training program with thesebooty-building foods:salmon, flax seeds, eggs, quinoa, legumes, brown rice, protein shakes, avocados, pumpkin seeds, tofu, and nut butters (via Healthline).

Some might have t started their summer body plan early on, and some are still on the way, but it is ok it is never too late. When it comes to reaching summer body goals, we tend to go after easy shortcuts to reach our target quicker but what is more important than losing weight, is avoiding common summer nutrition mistakes we all might be doing without noticing. Here are some diet pitfalls you need to be cautious around.

Crash Diets

While a slimmer body is the main goal, it is quite common that a lot of people resort to crash diets. But this kind of dieting can lead to malnutrition, headaches, and constant fatigue. The best thing is to consult a nutritionist to provide you with the right plan for your body.

Indulging in ice cream and summery desserts

Our cravings for ice cream and some desserts in summer are always on the surge, because who can say no to a nice scoop of ice cream or a French toast with drizzling sauce and ice cream on a hot summer day? It is ok to yield to these cravings every once in a while but be careful not to make it a habit.

Loading up on smoothies, sugary drinks, and sodas instead of water

Sodas, smoothies, and sugary drinks are always our go-to when we want some refreshment with nice flavors but these drinks are very high in calories. Instead, replace these drinks with water with some slices of lemon and mint, it will give you the same refreshing effect.

Heavy meals at night

Summer means longer nights, parties, and gatherings and along with that comes cravings to munch on something. If you feel getting hungry late at night, go for lighter food choices like salads, fruits, or nuts. Generally, make sure to include foods rich in fibers in your meals as they help make you feel fuller.

The only way they get to see each other is by leaving the pods engaged (Picture: Netflix)

Theres no denying that reality TV is fatphobic. I hardly need to tell you that.

In my 29 years, Ive never seen anyone thats looked like me on frivolous shows about sex, dating, and finding love (or trying to, anyway).

Though Im a size 16 the average size for a woman in the UK Im classed as plus-sized. The only place women like me can be found onscreen are on shows about food, dieting and weight loss. Stretchmarks and sex dont go together, it seems.

Its more Made of Chelsea buns, and Unloved Island for plus-sized people.

It doesnt mean that reality shows arent a guilty pleasure of mine, though with Love Is Blind being a firm favourite.

If youre unfamiliar with the US Netflix show, a group of cis, heterosexual (theres been one openly bi person on the show), able-bodied, conventionally attractive men and women sign up to prove if love is blind by dating the opposite sex in pods with a wall between them.

To view this video please enable JavaScript, and consider upgrading to a webbrowser thatsupports HTML5video

The only way they get to see each other is by leaving the pods engaged, and moving in together, with their wedding in a few weeks. Its wild.

The idea is that they look past size, race and appearance, falling in love with a personality, not a figure that is their usual type.

This would be a great concept, if there was ever any plus-sized storylines on the show, that is.

The social experiment was hardly challenging, as everyone looked the same. They were slim, and they were beautiful.

And the reason for focussing on exclusively skinny people? Theyre not insecure like plus-sized people are, according to the shows (slim, beautiful, married) co-host Vanessa Lachey.

Though season one, released in 2020, passed by without a plus-sized person in the main cast in sight season twos first episode back in February promised not one but two bigger girls, Hope and Chassidy. Finally, I sighed to myself deep in my family bag of Thai Sweet Chilli Sensations.

Yet, they disappeared. Vanished as if they never existed. Succumbing viewers to storylines exclusively between slim couples. They were side-lined.

When asked in an interview with Insider last week, Vanessa Lachey blamed this on their confidence.

Their whole life theyve been so insecure about being themselves because of this crazy swipe generation that we are in and this catfishing world that were in, that theyre so afraid to be themselves, she said.

This ridiculous shunning of plus-size people rang true throughout the entire second season, with contestant (albeit the shows self-inflicted villain) Abhishek Shake Chatterjee asking women if he could put them on his shoulders at music festivals to get an idea of their body weight, and inferring that he preferred women who exercised.

Though Lachey plays no part in the casting process, claiming that those with diverse bodies get a fair shot she wondered aloud if plus-sized people have enough time in those two weeks to find themselves [] and then be themselves to then find that spouse.

Why are people who arent plus-sized so obsessed with people like me finding themselves? What have I got to find? A treadmill? Another book on fad dieting? A new body?

Plus-sized people are worthy of love, as they are. As themselves. Except, when slim people look at me, like Lachey, they assume Im insecure. As if I couldnt possibly *want* to be the size I am.

But I am not lost.

The reason plus-size people have any shred of doubt, or insecurities about their size is because people like Lachey hold us back.

We dont see ourselves anywhere, no one represents us slim, able-bodied, conventionally attractive people just stereotype us. They congratulate us for any weight loss, or punish us for looking different.

Thankfully, I adore my body and I am adored. But in the past, Ive felt vulnerable, pressured to change and fit in to the too-tight mould cast for me by close-minded generations of the past. I have my off days where I actively despise my body everyone does but its people like Lachey that have caused this self-doubt.

She does not speak for me. Thankfully, now I am stronger, wiser I cant say the same for everyone, though.

What damage have these shows caused, and continue to cause, by side-lining bigger people and showing that only skinny people are worthy?

Love Is Blind and other reality TV shows like Love Island need to put body diversity front of screen. Its nothing to do with a new catfishing culture or a swipe generation this stereotyping and discrimination of plus-sized people has been relentless, for years.

I cant see it changing anytime soon, though.

Lachey, we do not need you and other slim people to speak for us, and we certainly do not need your sympathy, or ill-informed assumptions. I am loved, I am wanted, and I am respected regardless of my size, or how my body looks compared to the previous contestants of Love Is Blind that I follow on Instagram.

Its not love that is blind, its Lachey that is blinded to reality.

When people think about Twitch streamers, the word fitness isnt usually the first thing that comes to mind, but bodybuilder Knut Spildrejorde is looking to fight that stigma with a month-long training camp.

Employing the participation of a handful of content creators in Austin, Texas, Camp Knut is a 30-day event that is helping streamers and their viewers learn about the best practices for working out, dieting, and body maintenance.

The concept is were training and dieting like professional bodybuilders to show the Twitch community, YouTube community, that it is possible for everyone, Knut said in a video posted to YouTube.

Led by Knut himself, this camp to promote gamer fitness includes six streamers that are fighting to finish out the full event. There are a couple of creators that have already made some guest appearances.

In the first week of Camp Knut, Rich Campbell and Esfand were among the creators that appeared during workouts. Meanwhile, Knut has enlisted the help of streamer and trainer Wake Wilder as an assistant in getting other streamers into shape.

Here are the streamers that are taking on the full Camp Knut experience:

Keeping track of everything going on at Camp Knut can be a bit overwhelming. Every content creator involved has their own channel that they have and will be streaming from at points, but there are a few specific places that you can go during the day to get your daily dose of Camp Knut coverage.

NMP typically streams in the morning, and a substantive part of his broadcast happens in his kitchen. During the month of Camp Knut, his kitchen streams have largely included Polom meal prepping and following the dietary restriction that Knut has set for him. At times, he has even had Knut on to help and talk about the diet.

During the day, Knut has been streaming his preparation for the camps afternoon workout sessions and talking with his viewers about everything going on.

As for the workouts themselves, they have typically happened in the late afternoon, and they have consistently been streamed on Mizkifs Twitch channel. Each content creator involved has spent time on their personal streams talking about the camp as well. To follow each individuals journey, you can go to their respective streams.

Additionally, Knuts YouTube channel has an abundance of non-live content covering the event. If you cant catch a day of Camp Knut on Twitch, Knut has daily posts on his YouTube that are serviceable recaps.

Oh, TikTok, the creativity and innovation you bring to the world is impressive, but the influx of weight-loss gimmicks on the app are less than desirable. The latest being the "internal shower" drink, which is basically a DIY liquid laxative and has garnered over 90 million views on TikTok.

The ingredients for the internal shower involve mixing two tablespoons of chia seeds and fresh-squeezed lemon juice into a cup of water. One TikTok user who reviewed the drink described the texture as "alien slime," and another compared the consistency to a "glass of semen." Delicious.

Nutritionist Luke Hanna posted his reaction to the latest trend, saying, "Why are you all obsessed with making yourself shit your own pants? Because that's all this 'internal shower' is doing." It's just fiber, he said, and we should be eating it every day through vegetables, beans, and nuts.

People in the comments swear it has worked for them, though claiming weight loss, cleared acne, and reduced inflammation. But if the drink is being used as a laxative to lose weight quickly, it can lead to disordered eating, a spectrum of eating behaviors that can have a negative impact on your life (different than eating disorders, which fall under a strict list of symptoms in the DSM-5).

POPSUGAR spoke with Toby Amidor, MS, RD, CDN, FAND, award-winning nutrition expert and author of "Diabetes Create Your Plate Meal Prep Cookbook," for her take on the trend and to learn whether it contributes to unhealthy dieting culture. Find out more about the internal shower drink below.

The drink is basically a DIY laxative to help with constipation, but it has been promoted on social media as a way to gain a "flatter tummy," thanks to the main ingredient, chia seeds (which are loaded with fiber).

TikTok videos featuring the drink have credited Daryl Gioffre, board-certified chiropractor and author of "Get Off Your Acid," who spoke about the internal shower on a recent episode of "The Skinny Confidential Him & Her" podcast. Originally referenced on the podcast as a "constipation reliever shot," the trend pulled its name from his instructions: "You drink that on an empty stomach and it's like an internal shower." He now shares "summer twists" on the "powerful intestinal cleanser" on his Instagram.

The recipe is simple: mix together a cup of water, two tablespoons of chia seeds, and a freshly squeezed lemon, then let it sit for 15 minutes to let the chia seeds expand. Once the seeds have congealed, it is ready to drink. Is it healthy? The verdict is still out. Similar to laxative abuse (more on that below), using it as a "cleanse" can slip into disordered-eating territory.

Fiber helps your digestive tract function, and a high-fiber diet may reduce the risk of heart disease and diabetes, according to the Mayo Clinic. However, if you consume high amounts of fiber too quickly it can lead to GI distress like bloating, stomach pain, and gas. Like anything else, you want to consume fiber in moderation. The Mayo Clinic recommends introducing more fiber in your food over a period of weeks in order for your natural bacteria in your digestive system to adjust to the change. "You can absolutely increase the fiber in your diet, but do so slowly over time and accompany it with more fluids," Amidor says.

Fiber is an essential nutrient that we should all aim to add to our daily diets. The recommended amount of fiber is between 25 to 38 grams per day. But rather than front-loading your fiber by chugging chia seeds before breakfast (which honestly sounds like a choking hazard), try spreading out the fiber. "You can divide your fiber intake throughout the day, which can also help keep you feeling fuller longer," Amidor says.

"There are so many fiber-filled foods options that really this 'internal shower' is silly. If you are feeling constipated, you may not be getting the recommended amount of daily fiber most folks get less than half! and eating fiber-filled foods throughout the day can help alleviate the issue."

Vegetables like beets, carrots, and avocados are rich with fiber and combined with fruit can create a tasty smoothie (especially if you prefer to receive your fiber in liquid form). Beans and nuts also add fiber in addition to a variety of nutrients and vitamins.

In general, laxatives are an easy over-the-counter fix to get your bowels moving again. Unlike most supplements, FDA has a list of approved drugs if you're suffering from constipation. But the risk of using laxatives comes in when it's not being used for its intended purpose.

According to Cornell Health, some mistakenly believe fiber-based laxatives will help with weight loss when in reality the drugs flush water and waste from the intestines not calories and ironically can cause more bloating, not less. Leaning on laxatives for weight loss could result in a physical or psychological dependency. Plus, long-term reliance can cause symptoms of electrolyte disturbances, dehydration, and mineral deficiencies, and severe cases of laxative abuse can permanently damage the digestive system and colon, according to the Rosewood Center For Eating Disorders.

If you're trying to use the internal shower method to lose weight, Amidor says you should examine the reason you're using laxatives in the first place. Is it to help move things along in the bathroom, or to try to expel food faster in an effort to appear slimmer? "You really should reflect on why you want to lose weight and why are you unhappy with the way you look," Amidor says. "That may help understand some deeper issues that may be prevalent."

It's the intention that makes the difference of whether or not the behavior falls under disordered eating. If weight loss is a constant thought on your mind, you may want to talk to a registered dietitian nutritionist (RDN) or certified therapist who can get to the root of the issue.

If you or someone you know is struggling with an eating disorder, the National Eating Disorder Association (NEDA) has resources available, including a 24/7 helpline at (800) 931-2237. For a 24-hour crisis line, text "NEDA" to 741741 or use its click-to-chat help messaging system.

Alia Bhatt is all excited about Darlings, her maiden production. She also speaks about some advice she would give her younger self, in an exclusive chat with IndiaToday.in.

Alia Bhatt on an advice she would give her younger self.

Alia Bhatt is geared up for her first film as a producer, Darlings, to premiere on Netflix. The actor who also stars in the film shared her excitement about the new release. Darlings stars Shefali Shah and Vijay Varma alongside Alia and the trailer has already received good reviews. Alia also completed a decade in the industry this year. She made her debut with Student of The Year in 2012. In an exclusive chat with IndiaToday.in, we asked Alia some advice she would want to give her younger self. To this, the young actress said that she doesnt believe in changing anything in the past.

However, the one thing she would advise her younger self would be not to indulge in dieting so much. Alia told IndiaToday.in, I don't really believe in going back in time and changing anything because everything that I did, or I have, led to me being who I am today. But I guess I would say maybe don't worry so much about dieting. Thats something that I constantly feel like I've been very hard on myself over the years, younger or growing up, because it's a certain ideology.

She continued, People think that you should look a certain way, it's not all about the way you look at them or the way you feel in the end. It's a totally different dynamic in today's day and age. I see so many young girls are getting so obsessed with the way they look, especially because of Instagram and this and that. That's something that I would like to tell myself, to be more compassionate and kinder, you know.

She concluded, There's a certain kind of compassion with which you deal with yourself.

Alia Bhatt will soon be embracing motherhood with Ranbir Kapoor. The actress got married to Ranbir this year on April 14, 2022. The couple dated for many years before getting married. On the work front, Alia also has Brahmastra releasing this year with Ranbir Kapoor. The film will hit the theatres in September this year.

Snakes don't hiss anymore. No, they expose their sons in bizarre 20-minute interviews.

Elon Musks 76-year-old father Errol has left people stunned after candidly opening up to KIIS FMs Kyle and Jackie O about his tech billionaire son.

And, well, we're not too sure where to start...

The brutal bashing began when Errol dismissed his son's success, suggesting he wasn't proud of Elon, 51.

"Your offspring is a genius. Hes worth so much money and has created so many things, you cant take that away from him. Are you proud?" Jackie O asked.

"No," he responded. "You know, we are a family that have been doing a lot of things for a long time, its not as if we suddenly started doing something."

Getty Images

Errol also explained how his son felt he was running behind on his career achievements, with which he agreed.

"He is frustrated with progress, and its understandable," Errol said.

"I know it sounds crazy, but we tend to think like that as a family. Hes 50 now, and I still think of him as a little boy. But hes 50, I mean, thats an old man."

Errol then turned the attention to his son's diet after photos circulated online of the topless SpaceX founder aboard a yacht in Mykonos, Greece.

Twitter

"Elon is very strongly built, but hes been eating badly," he said before telling the hosts he had recommended a weight loss supplement that requires no exercise or dieting.

Despite being the father of the Tesla CEO, Errol revealed that he much preferred to drive his Bentley, Rolls Royce and Mercedes. He then told the hosts that Elons younger brother Kimbal was his "pride and joy."

Errol said he worried about Elon, who is currently single, as he may never find a woman who will give up her career, unlike Kimbal's wife Cristiana Wyly, who is said to be well-educated with a Master's degree.

"She's with him all the time, and that's very, very nice," he said of the couple. "Elon doesn't [have that], and I worry about him."

Errol has garnered a lot of press attention recently after speaking out about having a child with his then-35-year-old stepdaughter.

The pair began their relationship in recent years after Errol helped raise her from four. He was married to her mother, Heidi, for 18 years, and they have two children.

Speaking to The Sun, Errol said the second child was "unplanned", but they are now all living together.

He said: "I haven't checked her DNA. But she looks just like my other daughters. She looks like Rose and Tosca mixed up.

"She looks exactly like Rushi, and she behaves like him. So it's pretty obvious, you know."

Animal fats may be the next big thing in dieting. Can the chicken industry cash in on the trend?

In the past two years, social media influencers became increasingly critical of the role of seed oils in the U.S. diet. True believers say removing these oils derived from plants can solve to a slew of health problems.

Because social media trends, celebrities and Joe Rogan move the needle with consumers, interest peaked. Rhetorically, the argument makes some sense. Especially if viewed from an animal agriculture perspective.

In human history, seed oil opponents would say, the human diet was always centered around meat and animal products. Domestic animals and human society developed together so dairy products, meat and animal tallow became essential to the diet.

Only in recent history, with the explosion of processed food and urbanization of society, did vegetable oils enter the human diet to their current point of saturation. Eating animal fats instead of vegetable oils is more natural, they might say.

The truth of those arguments is hazy. Historically, seed oils are not new to cooking or chemistry with a history stretching to antiquity around the world. Dieticians observing the topic from a nutritional angle agree eating lots of high-fat, processed food or foods fried in any kind of oil is not the best decision. However, when closely examining seed oils they say theres conflicting studies and little difference between any other cooking fat.

Nevertheless, if shoppers make up their mind that soy makes them feminine or that the hateful eight seed oils are toxic, then the market should respond with products to fit their needs.

Theres an opportunity for the American chicken industry to create a shelf-stable or liquid poultry fat product for use in cooking. One young company, Fatworks, already markets jarred tallows and oils from common and exotic animals(wild boar fat, anyone?).

In its marketing materials, it appeals to those skeptical of vegetable oils and those looking for a paleo or primal style diet.

The chicken fat is certainly available any theres likely a way to collect the most sought-after oils from the organic, vegetable-fed, etc. birds. Integrators could market this to specific consumers looking to follow a trend or maybe to niche food service customers interested in capitalizing on a trend and using animal fat to differentiate their product.

Another, stranger trend following along with the rejection of seed oils is the embrace of organ meats. Some following carnivore diets, or paleo and primal diets which supposedly echo the diets of the hunter/gatherer man, are eating and preaching about organ meats.
