Photo Series Captures The Absurdity Of Fad Diets [Pics]

Stephanie Gonot takes images of the food eaten in different types of starvation rituals.

Los Angeles-based photographer and curator Stephanie Gonot captures images of food styled in unique situations or ways that most people wouldn’t think to associate these foods with.

In her photography series, Fad Diets, Gonot takes photos of the foods eaten in different types of popular diets like the Master Cleanse and the cigarettes-and-Diet-Coke diet.


The series aims to create a stark visual of the foods that people eat or don’t eat and questions whether people will diet differently if they can see clear images instead of number of calories or names of foods that are included or should be avoided based on their chosen diet program.
