Athletic students?
I have seen many students focusing on diets (keto, paleo, etc) and their body image while trying to say they're aiming for health and athleticism. Where does this come into play in an educational classroom? Should this kind of talk be banned, or utilized?

I personally think it is amazing when our youth is health conscious. In this day and age there is so much competition in sports. Our students have so much pressure put on them trying to earn sports scholarships. I worry about them over lifting, or exerting themselves to hard for long periods. With the health diet and such I would not ban the conversation at all. I would just have a rule that the conversation cannot disrupt class or instruction time. There is way worse things they could be doing or talking about.

My personal advise: Do not ever ban something if you can avoid it. What's the first thing a student does when they learn something is banned? They test that rule.

You could utilize this opportunity to your advantage depending on the scenario. If you cannot take advantage of it, though, try to find something else for the group to talk about.

This is the course of action I would take if I had to, just make sure it's not disrupting class time and that everyone is eating and keeping down what they eat. We don't need those kinds of "diets".

You are absolutely right when you say there are worse things they could be talking about.

I think that this is an awesome thing that students are worried about their health. Students knowing that maintaining a diet is better for their health is important to learn at a young at. Where I would cross the line would be if students began making fun of other students for not being on a diet or not worrying about their body image. Students are allowed to be confident in themselves but not at the expense of the other students feelings.
