This Friday is ‘No Diet Day’, and to celebrate, we're encouraging you to drop your rules and restrictions around food, and join in this no-shame, body-positive day!
For far too long health has been associated with unrealistic body types and unhealthy, dangerous fad diets introduced to achieve those body types - which has caused an eating disorder epidemic across the world. International No Diet Day was introduced in 1992 by Mary Evans to help men and women around the world appreciate their own bodies, and help tackle tough issues regarding diet and body awareness, focusing on a number of agendas, including;
- Having all people take a day off from their diets, encouraging people to indulge in their favourite foods and drinks.
- Celebrating the diversity of different body shapes and sizes
- Educating people on how to diet safely and effectively
We have compiled a list of some of the best restaurants and food and drink products to try this No Diet Day.
If you're looking for somewhere to eat out this No Diet Day, The Vurger Co. has restaurants in Manchester, London and Brighton, offering a huge range of burgers, salad bowls, sides, and milkshakes - all completely vegan.
Passionate about creating fresh, yet indulgent fast food, that is 100% vegan, The Vurger Co produces the tastiest, most satisfying vegan fast food to feed your soul. Some say they make “the best VURGER in the world.”
